Sherman, you are right. After looking over the notes of the meeting, the members did vote for rubber tire for the 13.5 spec class. So, to all the oval drivers, 13.5 nationwide spec will run on rubber tire.

To the board members, this Thursday the 9th, there is a board meeting at the Round table in the Raley's shopping center at 7 pm. I tried to find a different location but, it fell through. 

See you at the meeting and at the warm up race.


Gordon.

I am new to oval racing. Last year I ran the 17.5 truck and tried the 13.5 car on foam tires.  I had a great time with the truck and struggled with the 13.5.  I ran the car on foam tires 3 or 4 times and had to buy 3 sets of tires because I chunked them.  This winter I ran the car on rubber tires at P1  a couple of times and had a blast.  In my opinion the races were cleaner and more fun.  I am in favor of rubber tires.

GORDON, I TALKED TO ROB AND DAVE THIS MORNING AND THEY METIONED THAT AT OUR LAST MEETING WE VOTED ON 13.5 RUBBER NATIONWIDE NACAR WITH SMALL SPOILER, AND 13.5 SPRINT CUP NASCAR WITH FOAM AND REAR WING? THE SPRINT CUP CAR WILL STAY THE SAME,THE CONCERN WAS IF THE RACERS JUST TESTED WITH RUBBER TIRE IT WOULD BE TO TROUBLESOME TO CHANGE OVER. MONEY SPENT ON TIRES SPACERS AND DIFFRENT SET UP. DID`NT WE VOTE RUBBER? I REALLY DID NOT PAY TO MUCH ATTENTION BUT TALKING TO THEM IT MADE SENCE TO GO RUBBER WHAT DO OU AND ANY OTHERS SAY??????

Bryce, yes you can. The battery that I have has a dean's connecter. I think both Peak and Reedy have different connecters.

Gordon,

 I'll be there, just say when and where.

 Question on the semi truck class, is it safe to assume that we can change out the battery connector? Nobody uses Molex (Tamiya) connectors and we allow this change in all of our other spec classes like 55 Bomber, Slash, and Rally.

Sherman, I don't know. I think Amy wrote down the information and was going to change the schedule on the Web site.

I am calling for a board meeting next Thursday. That's Amy, Bryce, Sherman, and is it Steve Martin Sr. that's the at large rep, and my self. Did I miss anyone? I will try and find a place to hold our meeting at since Round table only reserves the room for twenty or more. I will see what I can find.

Sorry racers I have no choice but to call this a rain out race and schedule the warm up race to happen on March 19th at Driven raceway.

About the Tamiya euro truck class, the class is box stock except I am allowing the bearing up grade. No changing the motor, or speed control you must run it as it comes out of the box.

Hey All!

Interested in running the Tamiya Semi, are there official rules/specs up yet? i.e. is the Hahn version the only one approved or can we run the Reinert version? Is there a difference? Just want to make sure before I buy one...

Kevin, I'd like to see how many 13.5 spec show up for the warm up race, so I can get some feed back from the drivers on tires and or problems. The board will be meeting soon to finalize the classes. So, fingers cross lets see if we can run on Sunday.

Is 13.5 spec going to be rubber tire for 100% for sure? I would like to know as i'm sure a few others,since some have to build new cars that work with 2.46 tire front and lr.

Damn rain wish we were racin sunday but its not looking good. My opinion on 13.5 spec on rubber tire is great youll bring in newer drivers to that class my thing when it was a foam tire class was i did not want to have to buy a tire turer to runn foam tire a huge expense, also like kevin said foam set up is totally different then rubber so how much racing would i actually do in the class with foam if my set up was not right spinning ouy in yhe corner i would probably not wanna run the class. The p1 race was a great time i had a fast car i learned a great deal of knowledge from rob burns, dave. Ivey and blake that day. I also felt supper proud of my self when i knew the car needed an adjustment told blake hey can you do this on my car and boom the adjustment made it way better. I would not have that with foams right away

Well have support for the expert class once again. we should have 5-7 like in the past.
rubber 13.5 i'm not so sure thats the way to go,i do like the tire deal,i had close to 60 runs on my truck set and it went 70 4:02 right around run 56 or so at delta.. from a $$$ perspective it's fantastic.. prolly get three years on a set of tires at gp club racing
 If it nets us 8entry's plus every race then that's awesome, we'll be switching to rubber at delta once it's set in stone for gp 2017.
 FYI anyone reading this thread- throwout whatever you've learned about foam tire racing,it does not work for rubber. We';ve been doing some pretty strange stuff to get them fast and free,i sure wish they would have used the same insert front and rear,it would of helped the oval side out tremendously. Those rubber tires were designed for F1 not oval.
 Hope you guy's get you're warm up in,i'll be playing in the clay,but expect to make the rest of gp club racing starting in april.

Kevin, beside 13.5 spec, are you fine with the 13.5 cup class? We are not changing the rules except for the motor. The other new class is the winged sprints 17.5 NR. After watching the 13.5 spec with rubber tire up at P1, as close as the battle for first was that was some good racing.

I will post up on Friday if the race is a go, or not.

Sure you can always make a case against anything just look at politics lol.  If you wanna discuss it further my numbers in my signature shoot me a text.  

it's going to be a great year at GP this year!  We've got some excited guys and the last meeting was packed with voting people. I haven't seen this much enthusiasm in a long time!  Can't wait except for the stupid rain!

lol.. really?some of the  current cars cannot run a large  Left REAR tire, without cutting up the chassis. 13.5 spec is a foam tire class,most cars are foam tire cars.
 Just off the top of my head i can think of 1\2 dozen that wont clear lr ,and my personal car wont clear lr or in front.But i can build whatever it doesnt effect me,i'm concerned for other guy's that it's going to effect. It just doesnt make sense other than cost of the tires,which is the only positive.
  What ever is best for the GP club i'm all for it.. the outcome is still going to be the same regardless if it';s foam or rubber. Getting car counts up all year thru.

I had fun running truck and helping guy's get faster,there's a place for rubber truck and sportsman 21.5.
 Rubber vs foam 3-4 laps difference with the good cars.



 Cya guy's in april..
