It was nice meeting all of you guys last night, I'm excited to come out and race with all of you, especially seeing as it's not a two hour drive to go race!

Definitely excited about some pavement sprint car racing, I think that will get some new people out for sure! I'm also excited to try my hand at oval pan cars.

Just my two cents about the classes (I know I don't hold any weight here as an outsider, so feel free to flame away after I say this! LOL!), After hearing at the meeting that you had an average of 10-12 entries for 17.5 oval last year, and also hearing that some of those drivers would drop that class in order to run a 17.5 non ramping class, it really doesn't seem wise as far as car count goes to have 3 pan car oval classes, seems it could possibly hurt car count across the classes? Now if there were average of 30 pan cars at an event I could see the justification of adding a 3rd class. Again, as an outsider seeing a stock type class with a consistent B-main every race weekend would make me think "man this club has it going on!" whereas 3 classes without full fields is a little lack luster.

As far as the classes go, I think a 17.5 non ramping/blinky class is an attractive class for someone like myself looking to get involved. It takes the speed control out of the game and focuses a little less on the electronics and more on the hardware, and I've always found if you can get your head around setting up the car and driving it well, then adding speed is a natural progression. In the dirt oval world we typically run 13.5 non ramping, and open mod. The transition for a good driver in the 13.5 class to open mod is pretty smooth if they are ready, meanwhile the 13.5 class is not so intimidating to someone coming out of a novice type class.

I just need the word on what it's going to be, I'm already getting tired of looking at my 17.5 car sitting on the shelf with no tires or body! LOL! I also have a pretty nice TC3 that could become VTA fodder if that class gains momentum

Can't wait to come out! thanks again!

Great meeting last night.... thank you to all who attended....good ideas, the main one being the big leap from Novice to stock (ramping 17.5), especially in oval....maybe need a class in between? The suggestion was for a truck class, 17.5 motors, non ramping. Also a call to slow the 10.5 races, maybe going to a 13.5 motor. Biggest change would be to add a non-wing sprint class, running 13.5 motors and 2 cell packs. There seems to be a lot of interest.

There was also a suggestion for a vintage Trans Am class....that looks like fun and I love the looks of the cars...except I'm old enough to have gone to those races in the late 60's. Maybe run a silver can motor and HPI rubber tires.

There was a request to have the road course layout done ahead of time so set up could be done earlier...I'll have aerial shots of our three sites to pass out at the next meeting so everybody can take a shot at designing a course. We only need six good layouts for the year and we could even repeat them next year if we wanted to.

Again this year we'll have the dates, locations and featured classes planned for the whole year on a flyer so you'll know what to expect at each race.

The Board will be meeting shortly to put together a plan before the next meeting.

Can't wait to get to another meeting and chit chat with the other guys again. Even more so, I can't wait to start racing again.

GP Members spread the word about the meeting, please! E-mail other racers, post on forums, let your friends know!

This is the meeting where the GP Club will discuss possible changes for the 2012 season. Ideas will be brought forth and discussed. Everyone's input is welcome. Not every idea can or will be used, but it never hurts to voice your ideas. Not only will the oval classes be discussed, but on-road as well.

Now is the time to bring up ideas on what to add, what to change, and this includes the race-day itself ....

The Board will gather all the info and then proceed. They will meet and make some decisions, other items will be voted on by the club members during the February meeting.

Tuesday night will be a full house. Please bring R/C cars to show. There will also be a great raffle! Hope to see-you there!

I've been talking to Kevin about coming out for the Ground Pounder season. Spec Truck would be a for sure second class for me if everything else plays out.

Gordon- No, in the spec truck class 17five is open motor choice, novaks, Tp's, D3's, Revtechs, all run up front ,each mill needs a different rollout tho, but we have info for any combo out there for anyone that needs guidence..

I'm hoping to get some more respose from the current stock guy's and potential new guy's to help  vote on ,change the current stock class to the more fun,closer racing class with the trucks.

Dan,Dave, Don, Greg are all for it,i've contacted a few others but i would appreciate anyone that runs the stock class currently or plans on it this 21012 season to chime in,send me an email or call.

The cost of changing the class over is very low, truck body, a set of spec tires, thats it basically, the battery would still be any currently available 1 cell pack..

The class would make the racing closer,slow the cars down a touch, but honestly it would make the class alot better for everyone that runs stock

It's still not a begineer class, but the guy's that work on their oval program are still going to be the ones up front and our pits are always open to help anyone that needs info or help set-up,rollout,etc... 

I'll be attending the first gp club meeting whenever that is, i have 2 positive proposal's that are going to help the oval program with the gp club.

Koz- The 17.5 motor that is used in the spec truck class, is that the speed passion cirtrex motor? Speed passion runs a fixed timing so there no timing advance, or is there another motor thats used?

no spec rollout, each motor brand \rotor stregth,etc. takes a different rollout, just too many variables.

Like i said it would certainly tighten up the stock class some, but the guy's who actually work hard to go fast in stock are still going to be the guy's to beat.  oval racing is the hardest form or rc racing to get fast and to stay fast,most get discouraged with oval and quit,and move on to another type of rc racing where it isn't quite as demanding .

It's definitely not a beginer type of class but for the stock guy's it would tighten up the class considerable

Koz: Is there a final drive that is set like that in VTA? The class sounds great, and the close racing would promote both spectators point of view and drivers to join in the fun.

This is another classs to be consider at the next club meeting in January.

Gordon.
