Jake- Not sure, I'm currently the only person on the west coast right now with a direct drive Hyperdrive\Gfrp car.. I ran both direct drive  and transmission same day testing on our high bite dirt oval, lap times were super close with a nonboosted 13five car, both also took a different set-up. and drove differently . Only real advantage is in the 17five classes,were rotating weight makes a little difference. I have alot less $$$ in a direct drive than any of my transmission cars..

 we need to stick to what 99% of what rules are being run out west so we can maybe get some more entries from Sac area.. 

The dynotech car isn't a transmision car, there are also belt drive cars out there as well.

GP club oval racing should be the best in many  years with the additions,and minor tweaks!! sure hope we get a warm-up race in march!!!!!!!

Man I'm so stoked for this class I can hardly see straight!

On another note, why are ALL dirt oval MFG websites unusable?  I mean, is this like a prerequisite to be a d/o chassis maker? 

Even the CW site is terrible and I would have to think CW has the funding??

I have yet to find a picture of a HD car or the JRC....or the pemberton.....or....yeah.

If you are a D/O chassis maker and you are reading this....  Email me.

Sorry for the rant but I couldn't take it anymore! haha

I'm going to chime in on the D/D topic, I honestly never saw a difference with 13.5 between a well built gearbox and a D/D car. 17.5 I think it might be slightly noticeable, but even at the national level they do not segregate between D/D and gearbox, and a D/D car drives much different than a gearbox car, so there is give and take for both setups. As far as it keeping cost down I know Mike Jeffery from JRC and I believe Dustin Malicot from Hyperdrive will sell a D/D car for the same price as a gearbox car.

In my opinion, people that want to spend the money on drive train will do so anyway, by the time you put full ceramics, lightened outdrives and a lightened gearset in a gearbox car you've spent the same about the same a D/D conversion with ceramics.

Koz: How many guys have DD Sprint Cars? Should we consider making it GB only, to help keep costs down?

We have a direct drive conversion for the hyperdrive|gfrp cars.. Biggest advantage is going to be in the 17five non boosted classes, a well built lite weight transmission car in 13five non boosted is going to run right with the direct drive cars.. 

 

Hyperdrive\GFRP,CW, Putnam, JRC, PEMberton,are your best bet. As far as cost goes, All the current top cars all run about the same price , by the time you get electronics, graphics, tires etc.. minor upgrades, there isn't much difference in price.

 

We'll have 4 Hyperdrive\GFRP car's supporting the wingless class as of right now, anyone needing help advice etc.. let me know

Also i'll be with CEFX for the following year, so as usual anyone needing help let us know.

After the stock class gets sorted out shoot me an email-i'll give you a short list on changes you'll need to make with your set-up\rollout when going to non boosted\spoiler, or whatever combo we go with.

The board can't meet until next Wednesday but there's so much support for the class that we're going ahead with the sprint class with the rules referenced in this thread. We reserve the right to make minor changes if needed for our race sites and situations.

Boogedy, boogedy, boogedy....let's go racin' boys!!!!!!

We will discuss the other oval and VTA classes and post the results after the meeting next week.

Any kind of sprintcar foam or rubber tire. Custom works, rc4less, & tm make them. It is different then a pan car foam

I might have missed it but I haven't seen what type of tire you will be running in the sprint car class.

I've run wingless sprinter on carpet before and it was so fun racing.

JRC is making a really nice direct drive car, but in all honesty, I don't feel D/D is a big enough advantage. it has lower rotating mass, but it also moves the weight drastically in the car. At the end of the day, especially with the available power and consistency of todays electronics and batteries it's kind of a push, and really just a matter of personal preference.

Here's Mike Jeffery's website: he has maybe 10% of what he makes on the site, so you're best bet is to look at the Jeffery Racing Concepts forum on dirtoval.com, or just call him up, he's a great guy to deal with.

The Pemberton car is also on dirtoval.com in the Pemberton Race Works forum. Steve Pemberton is a long time builder of oval Pan cars, and recently bought out T2C. He has added some very cool pieces and is sure to be a player in the dirt oval scene.

Good info!  Would you have links for the JRC and the Pemberton?

The Dynotech interests me because of the transmission setup.. Only 2 internal gears would make for some pretty low rotating mass!

Joe, The dynotech cars are nice, but the driving style is quite a bit different than a lot of cars, they like to be on throttle a lot. I'm not sure how they would be as a blinky 13.5 car. I ran one for a while in open mod, and it was good on big track, but small track with traffic it was pretty unforgiving. If you do go with one, do the GEN 2 car, they have a slightly longer wheelbase, and revised rear suspension. Chad is no longer selling complete cars to my knowledge, but does still make and stock all the parts.

Kevin can chime in on the hyperdrive more than I can, but from seeing them, they, along with putnam cars (which is what I run), are the top tier cars as far as quality goes, they do cost a bit more than a new CW car though. CW cars are great, dependable and the most used car out there. The JRC lightnings are nice, and the Pemberton SJ-27 seems like it could be made absolutely killer on a flat paved track given the extra offset of that car over the others.

What do you guys think of the Dynotech Sprint?  Or Hyperdrive?  Or is it all about the CW cars?

Well, someone let me know when it's for sure.  'Cause Blake and I will rejoin the club and run as many races as we can....NO BS.  Sprint cars are my R/C unicorn.  I've always wanted to, but never have raced an R/C Sprint car!!

"Is wingless sprints a go then? "

No, not yet.....from a post below

"The wingless sprints SOUND LIKE pretty much a sure thing...very exciting to have a new class that's sure to entertain!

I'll try to get the Board together this week or early next week to discuss all of these options and give everybody the info they need to make decisions and get ready to race!!!!! "

Cool!  Yeah I'm gonna come out of paved oval retirement for this class!  I have an old C&M Cobra that I might run....or perhaps I'll get a CW ride?
