52oz is pretty porky with the wings off the car, my car with no wings I think is 49oz. I think 48oz is a fair baseline. I know my car is a tad on the heavy side.

I'm really glad to hear the 17.5 is going to be a blinky class. Are there any other changes to that class? there was buzz about a spec body or going to a spoiler only?

Board meeting notes....

Oval -

*Adding wingless sprints per the rules in this thread, weight was discussed, seemed like 52 oz might require too much weight to be added. Thoughts?

* 17.5 ramping changed to non ramping to make the class more novice/low buck friendly. General consensus of the Board was that with the addition of Sprints there wouldn't be enough racers to populate another mid-class

*10.5 oval changed to 13.5

On road -

*Adding VTA...we'll run both silver can and brushless 25.5 at the March warm up to see how they compare. Leaning toward silver can to better accomodate our club racers...

* 17.5 Sedan will be a ramping class, no 13.5 sedan class

* Short Course truck dropped

* All other classes remain the same

Here is the 2012 Ground Pounder race schedule / location / featured class

March 4 - Water Agency - Warm up race

April 1 - Water Agency - Mini

May 6 - Driven Raceway - Ramping 17.5 Sedan

June 3 - Les Schwab - 13.5 oval / Wingless Sprints

July 7 - Driven Raceway - (night race) Slash Bash

August 5 - Water Agency - 24 Minutes of Le Mans (Nitro Sedan on road)

September 9 - Les Schwab - 17.5 non ramping oval / Nitro oval

October 7 - Driven Raceway - F-1

October 27 - Water Agency - (night race) Figure Eight

*Water Agency - 404 Aviation Blvd, Santa Rosa

* Driven Raceway - 4601 Redwood Dr, Rohnert Park

* Les Schwab - 6700 Hembree Ln., Windsor

Racer X, the board is meeting next Wednesday to discuss several different classes for this year.....

Personally, I think the VTA class will run, it's just a question of whether it's silver can or brushless.

Got off the phone with the rest of the board, looks like we'll be adding a nitro wingless class as well!

Just kidding.......

Trying to keep it light in here before we even turn our first laps in this new class!

Rules will be announced soon, doubt there will be any surprises. We didn't get to be one of Nor-Cal oldest and most successful clubs by going hard against the current.

we are running wingless , the 52oz is a general rule and won't apply to wingless class, the weight deal is a non issue..Without wings weight would be closer to 48oz

 Guy's this is really simple  BOTW\DODC basis rules

 

Asphalt 360 wingless Sprintcars

 

dirt oval type 4 wheel independent  suspension, NO 4wd, no solid axle

 

dirt oval type 2inch diameter wheels- ABSOLUtly no pancar type wheels with adapters

 

13five roar approved motor

 

NON BOOSTED - must be esc on the roar approved list

 

roar approved esc, that is either a no timing esc or software that can be teched for no esc timing, if its on the roar list approved for non timing ,it's legal. i posted up roar link page for people to see 

 

side panels, hood, tank,  headers,cage.

 

2 cell approved lipo

 

the rest of the rules are simple and all the dirt oval cars out meet those rules

keep this simple and have some fun with the Asphalt 360 Sprintcars!

It's all pretty simple. 4 tires, 4 shocks, chassis, Cage, Wing size, headers. Basically any Sprintcar made today conforms to these rules. Even an old style gear box car of yesteryear would work. My old Cw Direct Drive car from 18 years ago is legal.

I do suggest that you go to the Dirt Oval.com link and read up. However, the rules are very simple. The last thing I am sure Gary wants is to have to police another class. So keeping the rules as they are is a great idea. It is very easy to tech this class. You just need a scale and the ability to look at the little blinking light on the Esc.

It's gonna be a great class for sure. Can't wait to get out there and mix it up with so many drivers. Just need to finish up my castor wheels to put on top of my cage for when I wreck. It's much faster that way - lol

DODC rules are 52 oz. it's in the general chassis rules, not the sprint body rules.

depending on the car you may have to add about an ounce if you're not running a wing.

I am still learning about oval sprint racing. I think that KOZ is right on about the rules. I read the DODC rules and I think they would a perfect fit for the ground pounder sprint class. It did't mention the mininum weight, but I think its 52oz. Here is the website with the current rules.

http:/dirtoval.com/rules/index.html

I hope this helps anyone that might be confused about whats legal and whats not...

Greg,

Tower hobbies carries Custom works. Bumps and jumps also carries all of your Custom Works parts and others. Kipps Hobbies. Left hander rc. Jrc (Jeffrey racing concepts?)

There are some more, but I think that will get you started. Also I do believe that Jake is going to be stocking Custom Works products and probably can order what ever you need.

These new gearbox cars are nothing like they were when you and I raced in the old days. These cars are extremely fast and with the new transmissions only have 3 gears in them. They have very little resistance. I am amazed at these cars. Also we have so much power over yesteryear that the transmission really isn't any issue anymore. You would be fine purchasing a standard Gbx2 or the newer Gbx3. Either car will be great for an old guy like yourself

This topic has this old dirt oval racer's attention. I hope the rules are firmed up soon enough to allow us interested parties time to build a car. Please give them plenty of power(13.5 any ESC) and allow direct drive and gearbox to start the class off. The transmissions can always be seperated later if the class takes off. Anybody got any links of sites to buy sprint cars?

Thanks Guys, I am pretty much an on-road rookie, but i have a Mugen MTX4 that Jay Smith set up for me and I'm itching to get some track time with it. I bet I could talk Jay into bringing out his Nitro Sedan too.

Ford, Can you fuel my car? Please LOL!
