I'M lost. For the 13.5 NR Nationwide class it says we can run TCS tires. On what rim? Is the rim a pan car rear a four bolt, or an F1 rear axle with one nut? 

For the Nationwid truck class, is the club running the Spec lilac tire or is it open tire? 

I definitely have to get my act together this season, their are so many classes to run so much fun to have.

I'll ask again roar approved only motors with spec legal rotors only in 10.5 correct?

so we have 2 advanced /expert classes now with oval 10.5 and 13.5 nationwide?

hope to see you guy's on the 6th,lets try and see how it goes,it's never too late to make changes for what's best for the GP club,just because it may work or think it works other places doesn't mean it's going to at GP club.

Gordon, 13.5 is the nationwide body class. Open tire.
17.5 is the truck class with a spec rubber tire. 
10.5 is the regular body open tire.
all classes are non ramping.

For those who are new, or newer, Racer's reading this thread please keep in mind a few things.
 
1)  Times change.  Classes come and go.  Racers come and go.
2)  The GP Club is the longest running oval program on the West Coast.  They have always had a great program, which encourages racers of every abilitiy.  They strive to have a clear ladder system for racers to grow with (see #4).
3)  Offering classes and filling them with racers is two different things.
4)  The needs of the many, should always outweigh the needs of the few.
5)  Running a Club (or races) is often a thankless job.  People will second guess you if things fail, and rarely complement you when it succeeds. 
6)  More help is always needed.
7)  Just because a shop makes a business decision, doesn't always mean it's in the racers best interest.
8)  Support your local RC Club and Track (and hobby Shop).  They can come and go quickly.  Appreciate and support what you have while it's there.
9)  There is no quick fix.  Only time will tell what works and what doesn't.  It's never too late to correct mistakes.  Unless it's too late.
10)  I'm out of sage advice and #'s.  Good luck to all this race season!

Bryce, thank you for holding the bodies for me, I will try and pick them up at the first race. I may have a truck body and a couple of sedan bodies for you to paint as well.

Now it is clear that I have a few things to do before the first race. So, 13.5 NR oval is open tire and purple is the compond to run. The weight is 36 oz ready to run, thats good. In the 17.5 NR Nationwide class the tire is a spec compound acceptable at other tracks. There is also a 10.5 NR class as well, that might be to fast for my taste. 

The Mini class is still a ROAR approved 21.5 motor, or silver can motor. Good, I can change the motor to the Reedy Mach 3 latter. No other changes for F1 or 17.5 NR sedan, and USGT is set with their rules, good. 

Ok, Kevin I will be contacting you in few days to order a chassis for the Oval class. I can't wait to get out of this hospital bed and get ready for some racing.

Gordon,

 Don't forget, I still have your Bomber and USGT bodies all painted up and ready to go! Let me know if you before the April race so you can mount them up early!

Hi everyone,
It's me Matt Senn the newly elected President of the Redwood Empire RC Ground Pounders Club.  I would just like to inform everyone visiting this thread that the only people that will be posting rules for the club will be Amy Wildt or myself.  Anything that we post is the official word from the club.  Only Amy and myself.  We had a meeting to discuss the changes to the rules that were supposed to meet the current demands of the club. Those who attended decided that these rules were best for the club for the up coming season.  It doesn't satisfy everyone including me but it was the decisions that were made.  Every year some changes are made so this is nothing new to us.  Hopefully everyone will understand and realize that this is not change for change sake but to hopefully improve the racing expierence at GP club races.
As for having races at the P1 track all I will say is we had that discussion at a meeting this year and it was decided by the members that attended that it was not going to happen this year.  We will revisit this next year.
That is all for now.
If you want to contact me privatley you can e-mail me at sennracing15@yahoo.com.

Matt Senn

Cool gordon cant wait to see another truck out ther!. Its gonna be good to see an actual sportsman class this year that new guys can come to oval and feel welcomed. I've been racing oval for 22yrs and it has never really had a structure that promotes new growth. We have had to many seasons where oval has discouraged newcomers and never had a way to groom racers for the next level of competition. I know 10 new or returning oval guys this month alone.....how awsome is that!

The classes are great and not a huge or lesser step than what 2015 ran. I Ran the 13.5 blinky and only picked up .3 it had a little more punch which was nice in traffic. Overall not all that fast or any harder to drive still was flat out. 10.5 interests me though! It will be nice to actually have to breathe the throttle goin into the turn and not rely on my terrible computer skills to program horsepower. Havnt ran oval in a while that i couldnt just hold the throttle to the floor.

Yep different rules for sure but nothing to crazy..... just different. I like that the rules are set up to be easy for existing drivers to adapt (bodies tire motor) all stuff we get new for every season anyways.

Can't wait for 2016 racing!

Hi guys,

This is Mr. J. Even though I only race with you guys one time a year I thought that I would give a little input into your new oval rules. One of the reasons that I drive all that distance to race with you guys is because it is easy to have my cars meet your rules. Up until now your rules followed TOUR with a couple of small changes. To race with you guys in the blinky 17.5 class, all I had to do was take my truck body off and replace it with a NASCAR body and swap the spec tires for the foams that I want to use. To run the 13.5 class required no changes at all.

Just some thoughts from a guy that races at other locations also.

Craig

Gordon-That's exactly the idea man!  The 17.5 rubber tire truck class is so much fun!

FYI-I used to run a nationwide body in 13.5 boosted with the spoiler only and it was just fine traction-wise!

Here's a picture of it at the old water agency location!

I'll look into that malicious thing?  That's weird.  Anyone else get that warning? http://www.wscarc.racing is the website.

The thing to remember guys is these are all Non-Ramping classes.  13.5 non-ramping is about .5sec slower per lap than the old ramping class, which puts it where 17.5 nascar used to sit speed-wise.

10.5 non-ramping is just about the same speed as our old 13.5 boosted class.

Joe, Johnny, thanks for clearing up the Oval class for me.

So, I might just throw a truck body on the Top Racing 10SS. I will still purchase a Pemberton 4.2 for the 13.5 NR class. As for the Bomber class, all I need to do is clean the chassis, and change the oil, and throw a new body on.

Gordon.

Gordon,
  I would hold off buying new motors and bodies until after the warm up race.The bomber class is still intact .Run that for now until these new classes are straightened out.I was at the meeting but not too many of the oval guys showed to vote on the new rule changes. I did vote ney on the 13.5 class being changed to 10.5 but I guess i was the only one who voted ney.I also would have wanted to see the 17.5 nationwide stay 17.5 since the no wing body might be a real handful using a 13.5 on our track.

NEVER HEARD OF THIS ASSOCIATION. I'VE BEEN IN OVAL CLOSE TO 30 YRS. YES ROAR, TOUR, BRL AND WHAT'S RUN AT THE BIRDS,BUT NO WASS. THE ONLY 10.5 IS PRO MOD 10.5 WHICH IS AFACTORY RACERS CLASS. ONLY ONE OR TWO GUYS NORCAL COULD RACE IT CLEANLY. GP IS MAKING WRONG MOVE IN THEIR OVAL CLASSES. WE RUN ON PARKING LOT TRACK, NOT DEDICATED GROOMED TRACKS. TRIED LOOK UP YOUR ASSOCIATION IT CAME UP MALICIOUS MALWARE.
