I haven't driven oval in years but I am not sure why everyone is wanting to change stuff already. I say stick as close to the rules of most, if not all of the other semi local tracks so we can take our cars to any track with min changes and race. If we have our cars set up for 13.5 or 10.5 EDM and go some where else to race and they run 7.5 then not only will we have to have multiple motors but the set up may change drastically. I will be out soon with a sprint, EDM for me to run and will have a 4x4 SCLM for my son to run. I will run whatever the rules say and have a blast, just don't know why we are wanting rule changes already.

Matts edm body is pretty tough I drove franks all year with no problems,plus he drove all year before I drove it....he was hard on it too...I'm not running class anymore because I can't afford any other cars...it's electric sprint whatever fits me better for next years rules,nitro sprint and possible 1/8 lm but not 100% yet.......

I personally prefer the look of the EDM over the late model, but I can go either way. I also personally don't have a preference for motor, what ever you all decide to run. I DO prefer the handling of the EDM over the late model body, but could deal with a late model body. One thing I will throw out there since in reality not a lot of people have run either class, is even though the EDM body is a little more expensive, I guantee that in the course of a season most people will spend more on bodies for the late model class than the EDM. I don't think I crash that much and went through a couple of late mod bodies just at K&C. And we weren't even going fast there. My EDM body looks nearly new after about 7 or 8 races. I'm planning on playing tomorrow night, think I'll bring both cars and see how they run, I can throw a 13.5 in my late model and see how they compare. The EDM's are fun to drive though!

It takes a real driver to drive a Late Model - LOL!

and maybe you are right hopper with the never lifting with a 13.5 so what if you just left the cars alone and ran 10.5 blinky and see how the class goes with that. that way you dont half to go buy a new motor. no new body. and everything will be the same you are just putting your speed control on blinky mode and thats a very simple change for the class

i know the edm class dosent have a big turn out but the late model's didnt also thats why they changed the class to see if they could get the turn out to be bigger and keep the same car so there wasnt much money being spent to switch over. so i guess it is more of a toss up. but as of the motor situation maybe if its wasnt 10.5 ramped maybe there would be some others willing to try it out due to the speeds not being as fast as they are. i mean look at the blinky 13.5 sprints that class is huge and super competitive and at the same time the car isnt much slower then the mod cars cuz when you get into the big power game you can only go so far before ur just spinning tires down the straight away or burning tires up and that makes the class expensive. but what ever decides to get done i think the edm bodies look way better then the late model's but everyone has there own choice. but over all i think the car and the body shouldnt change. just talk about going to a little slower motor and see if you could balance out the guys from running 2 sprint cars to maybe a sprint car and a edm.

EDM has not caught on at the club level at all and the numbers where down in the BOTW because of the split of the sprint car class I know a handful got rid of them to run 2 sprint cars. Now there is talk to run bigger motors in the EDM which will propably lower the numbers yet again not good for a 2 year old class.

I hear you on that Chris. What it really comes down to imo is which configuration would get more support. Most local tracks in ca don't run edm at all. It's only at the botw series. I have ran it all season and had a blast. I want what's best for the series but also have to look at our weekly racing program. If only 3 or 4 or zero guys want to run 7.5edm on a weekly basis, but 10 guys would run a 13.5 class... It's an easy choice. I too just purchased a brand new spec edm body. Never liked how their availability was less than most other bodies. I think that with either body its likely that you'll never have to lift with a 13.5. Maybe we need to try running both and whichever class survives is what we run. Any more ideas? If we make this change I want to do it ASAP before anyone else spends money on stuff they do not need.

i think they should leave the edm class but just change the motor because then you would have people going out buying a new motor and a new body. and that adds up quick.

and i also know a few people who just spent a good amount of money to get there edm car ready for oval racing and now to switch the body and motor would kind of suck. but rules are rules and if you want to race and have fun you got to go with them

A 13.5 Late-model class would Be more successful then a 13.5 a EDM class. Full body car Will be more intriguing to new people than a open wheel mail box.. The spec EDM bodys are Way overpriced and not available at all Hobby shops ...Compared to late model bodys Which are available at most hobby shops...

The Aerodynamics on the EDM is Designed for speed. Why would we want to slow them down? Keep it 7.5 or just go open..

What do you racers think about changing 7.5 edm to a 13.5 blinky edm instead? I have gotten feedback that some racers would like to run the edm class/another class besides sprint cars and that the 7.5 edm class may be too fast for them. Looks like the botw series is also flirting with this change.
