I think everyone is just confused because of the way it's being written in this thread - the class titles are as follows -

It's 17.5 NR Oval and 13.5 Expert Oval (not 13.5 NR oval.)

Steve, on the web site for the Ground Pounders, the rule for 13.5 expert oval is that ramping is allowed. It's 17.5 NR oval that blinky is used.

How many do you need, Art? I have a Corally SP12X a "T" bar car, an SP12L a link car, a CRC GEN XL a wide pod chassis, and a GEN X "alter ego". If someone wanted to run 12th scale, I could lone a ride for the day, I'd have to see if I have enough tires and batteries for that day though. They would have to supply the receiver if they wanted to run is all. Maybe Joe would run his 12th scale as well. Also, Steve, aka bad boy, has a 12th scale maybe he would run his car as well. That"s what eight right now as possibles entries for a class. That sound like the old days again when Crash Baby, Old Purple, and the rest of the pan car experts would run the Ground Pounder events. Let me know and I'll bring the cars with me on September the 7th.

Ok Chris, I hope you can. Your 12th scale you bought, the one with the wide pod. I've had a top deck made, I'll have to show you it when I see ya. I was going to run Speedworld tomorow, but I'm racing Nor Cal tomorow so I'll miss the race at Speedworld if your going to race there.

Kevin O.- Eric V. thought of racing oval along with their regular on road classes. I said 17.5 NR oval or 13.5 NR oval would be good classes to run. Maybe Street Stock as well. What do you think?

I updated the info. on the site to show it as 36 oz/1020 grams on those two classes (17.5 and 13.5 oval).

Nitro oval = 8 minute main.

Only other thing is that the race is Septembet 7th and novice entry fees are waived at this race (ROAR membership is still required.)

I'll start another race day specific thread this week once I have a little more time.

The club had it's general meeting last night and there are some thing I need to clear up.

First, the weight rule for the 17.5 NR oval and 13.5 NR oval class. No were in the club rules is the weight for 17.5 NR oval and 13.5 NR oval listed. So, as of this September race and the rest of the season the weight for both 17.5 NR oval and 13.5 NR oval will be 36 oz. or 1020.58 g.

Second, the MINI motor rule. This past April Tamiya TCS rules were changed. The motor rule was changed to allow 21.5 brushless motors with timing adjustment and blinky ESC. The club voted to keep the use of the Johnson silver can motor through the remainder of the season, and change to the 21.5 brushless motor next season.

Third, the featured classes for September. The two classes featured are Nitro oval and 17.5 NR oval. Oh, someone help, I lost the time we had or was it laps for Nitro oval? Anyway, for 17.5 NR oval the A main they will run a total of 125 laps.

Forth, suspension on the Rally cars. It was brought to the attention of the members who run Rally cars that all four of the shock binds when compressed. The solution is the little addapter that comes with the spares kit in the box. It's a small part that attaches to the shock tower to move the top of the shock away from the tower. The club voted to install the part along withthe longer button head fastner (3 x 12 or 14 mm bolt) on the cars and that it be part of the Rally rules.

This goes out to Art, Chris D. moved up to Oreville so he may not make the ground pounders races. He will run at speedworld since thats closer to his home.

If I have missed something , shout it out and I will enlighten you.

Gordon.

Sounds like a great time! Me and the boys were in Disneyland. We will be making the rest of the races. Bring out your novice drivers next month. I'll see everybody and hear about the races at the meeting. Ray
