so if people bring there buggies, other kinds of on roads, etc. would that be run as a heat? (that would be very interesting to see a bunch of extremely different models competing against each other!)

Hey Avery,

The catch-all class is there to ensure no one is left out.  If it means some different car types racing together, that's what we'll do.  I agree with you - it could look cool.

I will not be racing this weekend and I am not shure when I will be back. My knee is still sore but it is slowly getting better. I will be shopping for a better quality brace for it and hopefully that will help.

this may be a bit of a stretch but would a 1/7 scale on road (traxxas x01) be able to run it the catch all class? that would be wicked fun if it could!

Id say 8th scale or larger would be a no go. They would do a number on our boards and people if they got loose. I think the catch all is implied to be 10th scale or similar size.
Or maybe it should be by weight? 8th scale cars are like 12 lbs lol

I think 1/8 might be a bit much for the track barriers, but I'd be willing to give them a "test" run to see what they look like.  We need more people out there!

I'm trying to get the club loaner car ready for this Sunday as we might have someone wanting to try it out.

See ya on Sunday,
Blake
