The spec truck class would have to replace a class, we just don't have enough local oval program to support another oval class.Spec truck is a really great class, and i would love to see it added to our club program, the racing is super close!

Honestly we would need to get all the current pancar oval guy's only to take a vote on replacing the current stock class with a spec truc class,but it needs to be addressed early enough so guy's can get there tire's and body's.

spec truck rules are as follow's

truck body, 2inch max spoiler height

purple stripe spec tires

17five motor

esc spec mode-easy to tech

battery- we would need to pretty much open this rule up for 2012 or our club deal, since 5000 and under cells are non exsistent for the most part, and allow guy';s to use there current 1 cell packs.

36oz min weight

 Any of the club pancar oval guy's post up on your thought's if interested in reformatting the current stock car class to a spec truck class.

our first club race is typically in march\april so that gives guy's more than enough time to aquire a truck body and a set of tires.

Best spec truck body is the protoform truck body

tires- TM,BSR,Jaco,CRC, all make purple striped spec\wgt type tires, they wear great, plenty of bite, probably could go almost 3-5 races on a set of tires.

personally it would make the stock guy's alot closer and makes for better racing ,without the same 2 guy's winning all the time.

Track settup really starts at 7am and if there was a few more club members ready to help out there is no reason the track would not be ready by 8 to 8:30 for practice. Also to make room for any class that whats to run lets just start racing at 10am as the rocks club did to help shorten the day. 

Oval Guys for the 2012 season lets bring the truck spec class to the Groundponders. What fun it was racing them down in bakersfield in early December. It was the largest class down there so i am sure there must be some interest in our club. Non ramping esc, 17.5 motor, spec tires,truck body,and battery limitation all to help keep cost down.

Just a few of my thought for 2012 season.

A couple of things to think about before the next meeting.

1 A normal race day starts about 7:30 in the morning and ends at 6-6:30 at night. Do we really want to make it longer?

2 If we decide to drop a class some racers will be upset after investing lots of $$$$ and not being able to race on race day

just something to think about...

I think if I'm going to do this I'll just go with the silver can and spend my money on a body and tires.

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 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.

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?
