Maybe this is something we should bring up at the meeting. I for one would run this class for the full season, and not run 17.5 nonramping TC.

Before we get all revved up on this, do we have enough to support the class and is everyone okay with making the race day even longer? Or could we combine this and run within another existing race? Or drop an existing race?

I have $300 in my VTA... The rules for this class keep the cost down..

Do you guys run Electric Sprint cars ?

I was thinking we should just use silver cans to keep the class cheap, because I'm sure everyone knows how expensive TC can be. It isn't in the VTA rules, but it might attract people with limited budgets.

VTA is a fun class. We race them @ Speedworld with the 25.5 motor.

I too think the hpi sprint flux2 is cool. But it is a little pricey at 349.00. I'm not positive but I think it only comes RTR.

A VTA class would be great, with a non ramping ESC with a 21.5 or 25.5 motor. I'd run this class in an instant with my old Corally RDX. Spec Wheels and tires from HPI will help lower the cost.

Erics' suggestion of the HPI sprint stock class with a fixed final drive is also a great idea. Run the stck motor and you'd have a class like the SLASH class that is a favorite.

I put a TA Camaro together at the beginning of last year(?) without much interest being generated but I like the idea!

What about trying VTA? We could run silver cans, vintage treaded tires and vintage body.

Would we have to eliminate another class to keep from getting the day too long?

I think the Mini class is close, but was thinking of something a little quicker that may provide more mass appeal.

I don't have anything definitive sorted out, but HPI's Sprint 2 Flux, box stock with a similar Slash style rule set with a choice of radio and battery is where the idea is currently at. I know there's reasons why it's good and bad, just trying to help move the conversation. Not married to the idea or anything.

I wouldn't mind doing the F1 qualifying like to big cars where they'd all be on the track but rather and the fastest lap qualities P1 etc.....woulodn't really take much change other than having to lok at the heat sheets to determine who turned the fastest lap first. That being said, I like the format how it is for the most part.

A spec sedan class? I like it...would it be silver can motors also? What car would you suggest? or would it be sedans in general? Spec tires? Lets put some thought to this. Isn't this kinda what the Mini class is?

Most of the oval racers are repeat customers so we probably wouldn't have traveling racers not knowing the rule. I don't have a dog in that fight so it's something the oval guys would need to hash out.

Three minute Novice races? What's the thought there? It would only change the length of the day by six minutes and it may send a negative message to the Novices.

Qualifying heat races are also part of the overall show. Qualifying one RC car at a time doesn't sound very exciting to watch at all.

Surviving two heats and a main has worked well for us for decades, I believe the pros outweigh the cons.

I like Koz's suggestions and I'd also like to explore a box stock onroad class that would be ran in the same way as the stock slash class, ie the car must be ran as is out of the box.

Ifmar style qualifying does clean up some of the racing but for the most part we don't have enough people to worry about getting into the "A", pretty much everyone makes the show. It's great for bigger races where a few hundrents can make the difference if making the show or ending up way down in a lower main, we just don't have that kind of talent for a local club race...

 Drop the novice races to 3 minutes.

 

 Stock oval class lose the rear wing and go to spec Protoform tcc2 oval body and just spoiler only,this would tighten up the class and make the racing a little racier , body's are only 2o bucks and change.

 Lower entry fee's.= 15 per class, 3rd one five bucks, novice 5 bucks

I'm sure more who read these local threads can add some positive idea's

Gordon - I love starting that way but there is 2 problems that I see with that. 1) It adds a lot of time to an already long day at the track. We start racing at 11am, if we are lucky we get a round of qualifing in in 2 hours. So that starts the mains at the earliest 3pm. If the mains go smoothly then we are done by 5pm. Track tear down takes another hour and if we are lucky we are out of there by 6pm. As the 1 main person who tows the trailer, that puts me home at the earliest 7pm. And when I am getting up at 5am to do this, it makes for long day. Adding a couple of seconds onto every heat when you have 13 - 19 heats like we do for 2 rounds really starts to add up. This has been brought up before and we really didn't go for it due to the time it adds to the day. 2) You need people on the computer that know how to do what you are asking. We have a lot of different volunteers that step up during the day to announce and some only know how to press start and print and read off a couple of names, that is it. Not saying they are bad but they just won't be able to do the starts this way, and won't volunteer. That means only a few select people will have to be up there all day every race day to do these starts.

Once again I like these starts but when you really step back and look at it for our club and all the classes we offer, the people we have and the time we have to do it all in, just doesn't really work.

In qualifing, drivers start behind the scoring loop, and when the tone sounds a drivers name is call and he or she begins their qualifing time be it five or six minutes. When the tone sounds to end the qualifing session, the driver will contiue until their name is called and the best time over all in the two segments is top qualifier. The grid is then set and drivers line up acording to their qualifing time,
