Welcome to the Short Course Nation Bogey. Yes I remember you. You could hardly walk but you were always smiling.

You're in good hands now. I'll show you how to have fun and racenut will show you how to drive. If you need to know to crash, talk smack, make excuses, I'll introduce you to the rest of the rowdy bunch... jerry, mecam, badboy, etc. Firestone can teach you how to post 10x on this board too in less than 2 minutes.

Zorg... don't we have a bike ride wed or thurs?? It'll be good either way.

Why limit it to 8.5?  If people want to run 3.5 and go crazy with it, let them be.   I think 8.5 would probably be the recommended max motor for that track size though.

I vote for ANY Motor (- 8.5 - 10.5 - 13.5 - ) in Short Course Open . There are Racers ALREADY using 8.5 anyway ---- Nobody checks Motors at races anymore UNLESS somebody New Wins --then somebody MIGHT check their Motor out. We have a "Box Stock/ Spec." Short Course Class -- so leave SC Open - Open !

I think most Racers will just "Spin-out" or have "Traction" problems and Not want to use a 8.5 anyway or have to 'tune' their Motor down anyway. . Give them the choice

Even when they Started Open Class back in the 1980's ----there where NO MOTOR Limits --- Run What You Brung ! I remember Racing at ROAR Events back then with 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive in the Same Open Class w/ no Motor Limits ---

Just my 2 Cents worth ! Dave K ( AKA Chef Dave )

P.S. I have seen 4x4 Short Course w/ 3.5 Motors -- do they have any Limits ?

initially  it was simaler to the 10.5 buggy class wich is now considerd "mod"buggy .last year i ran a 8.5 a couple of times practicing, but the track and tires then werent up to snuff. now with all the new tires comming out AKA (enduros) and  J Concepts(subcultrues /double dee's... havent seen those yet eh?)  it's a "no brainer "but let's put it up to a vote.

What was the reasoning for the 10.5 limit in Open Class in the first place?

8.5 sounds like a good experiment. All it takes is 5 to make a class. Who's down? 8.5 for Sat? Count Luke in for 8.5 SC.

Mecam, your kung fu is weak young padawan.
You strayed from the alliance when you interfered with Badger.
Now we know the truth that racenut IS your father.

Raining today.  I think Eric mentioned about closing late on Thursdays but not sure when that will take place.

This student is ready to take some night classes and show the teacher how it's done.

What is everyone's 2-lap main weekday schedule this week? I can head out there one of these weeknights. Is there a late closing day? We really need one since it stays bright out til 8:30 these days.

How's the rain treating the track? I'm assuming today's a no go with the afternoon rain.

Next Saturday, I can do qualifying circus again since I have to leave by 3pm. It's worth it for me but I'd like to check out the qualifying numbers if possible.

Short course... school will be in session soon. Don't be tardy.

Yeah that thing was pretty crazy.

I am going to run 2wd Mod,so 2 SC classes would be hard especially one being a 4x4.But I have a project I am working on that should take 4x4sc up a couple pegs.The Jammin rig is pointed in the right direction.The Hobao is good,and the slash 4x4 is well, a slash 4x4.

Really?
