    Well we have stopped and discussed the classes and we all agreed that when we started to split up the racers in the middle of the season last year with the toring cars that both of the classes really suffered. So for now we are going to run these classes:
    12th scale 17.5 no timing
    12th scale Modified - we discussed 13.5 timed but lets be honest its all the same speed and is just more difficult to keep track of
    World GT- This year it will be 13.5 no timing unlike last year I think this will make everyone much more competitive
    13.5 No Timing Touring Car- At least to start we are going to have just one class of touring car once we start having good turn outs we may add a VTA or a mod class but for now we want to see big car turn outs.

    We will still have a class for the tamiya minis and the novice.

    Seperate from the RCRIOT ran carpet races there will be racing with jumps for short course trucks and other nights that will be special occasions for certain things. We will have at least one completely dedicated practice night each week and every other week we will have our races. The building is absolutely amazing and really easy to get to!

    Up here in White Rock, we are having a meeting next Saturday, Nov. 5, to discuss our indoor season. It would be great if your schedule was up by then so we can schedule around it.

    That's disappointing, mini class is probably dead ( I can only think of three ) and vta could add something to the night's racing.

    We have discussed VTA for three years now and it is the same people who wanted and started the Mini class and the mini class is a much better option in my opinion because its still half the price of VTA. So the same racers who would run VTA can run Mini and save a bunch of money and if they really want to drive a touring car they can run the main touring car class.

    I do and always will think that it is better to run a b main against the best guys then win an a main against guys who arent the best other wise how do you know where you stand. Thats why we will have one group of touring cars until we have enough cars to warrant splitting up the classes. The reason we are going to have two 12th scale classes is many people own two cars and will race both classes and the 17.5 12th scale class is going to have over 10 racers in it to start with.

    Tony we are still in a bit of limbo for the schedule as its going to depend on when we are able to hold the first race. We are going to try and be on the off weekend of what ARCOR is on currently. We will also take the holidays into account. We are looking forward to racing up there though and would also like to discuss a championship with you, Hals Hobbies down in El Paso wants to hold one as well.

    I don’t care what the classes are I’m just glad we have a place to race! Thank you Adrian for giving us a new home and as always thank you Sean for everything you do to support on-road racing.

    Just a thought: Could VTA and mini's run together as a start. I have no idea what their comparable speed are, but I bet the guys who are interested in either class could sort that out.

    Sean I don't believe the mini class came along because it was inexpensive, it was to get away from the TC class as it turned into a class for the really serious/good racers. I no longer have a mini and I don't think Brian does, Paul may have his. If I see a 17.5 TC class of some kind I will buy a TC. The biggest turn outs were when their was a stock and mod TC class. Anyway looking forward to seeing the new track and I hope the turn out is huge. Asa

    I became less interested in touring cars and minis was and is a fun class without all the hassle of setups, etc. VTA essentially does the same thing as the tires, motor, gear ratio are standard and regulated... having traveled to several races the racing is very realistic looking and close. Sidebar as is the tamiya formula one class.

    I agree with cost...mini is the best...and id say we all had a pretty good time running them. VTA let's folks run somewhat subpar touring cars and gives them a realistic shot of doing well.

    If Jordan and I do touring cars, I plan on them being VTA at least in appearance, as they look better than the soapbox type, heck I'd run a vw bug body if I could find one of the 200mm ones hpi used to sell!

    Anyway, glad to see a track is being considered again, we had a great time at the last indoor track and it was certainly warmer than outdoor racing! And I'll finally be back in town for more than a weekend at a time lol...
