Alright, I will let the motor of choice be ROAR approved. Then I will try again next year to insist on following the TCS motor rule.

Ray, as for the Tamiya euro truck rule, you are correct their is no changing of the motor, the speed control or the battery. The battery must be the type listed in the TCS rules. The only item that is allowed is the bearing up grade. This class is strictly box stock. I talked to Jake on Friday to see what will be in stock for the euro truck. For now it could be tires or battery or motor.

 Just to be clear on the euro truck class.  Because I know that a lot of people  been purchasing them. We voted at the meeting that it must remain box stock.  You can't change the shocks or the motor.  The only thing that you can change is you can install a bearing kit.  And use the servo, radio, and receiver of your choice.

Agreed, my wallet would be happier if I don't have to buy another motor too.

I am in favor of keeping it that way Bryce. Not sure my budget will allow a new motor on top of everything else I've bought for this coming season.

Last year we just went with any "ROAR" approved 21.5 spec motor. That seemed to work for all the Mini drivers.

Art, I don't see why we can't. Unless there is a problem with Reedy suppling the motor, or if the members want to run ROAR approved motors, I will change the rule back to any ROAR approved 21.5 motor. Let's see what the Mini driver's say.

I'd like to thank the members who showed up to vote on the classes and schedule for the 2017 season.

The Oval classes are as follows. Novice electric oval, 55 Bomber class, 17.5 oval truck, 13.5 rubber tire oval spec, 13.5 cup class / foam tire / ramped, and winged Sprints. The only changes will be the SK car will be dropped and replaced with winged sprints. The other change is 10.5 cup class will become 13.5 cup class and follow the same rule.

For on road the classes are Novice electric on road, Tamiya Mini class, 17.5 NR TC sedan, USGT, Tamiya euro truck, Spec Rally, and Stock Slash. The changes for on road are that F1 will be dropped and in it's place will be Tamiya euro truck. We will follow the Tamiya TCS rules for both Mini and Euro truck.

The schedule for the first two race dates will be the warm up race will be at Driven raceway on March 5th. The first points race will be at Les Schwab in Windsor. The classes and schedule will be finalized at the board meeting in the Next Few Weeks.

So start preparing your rides and we will see you in a few weeks at Driven raceway on the 5th of March. Stay tuned for more up dates.



Gordon.

Looking forward to the new racing season with the Ground Pounders. Ordered my Tamiya semi from Jakes, hopefully it'll be here tomorrow. Totally box stock class should be a lot of fun. See you at the races.
