    Stupid question time.Same tires in both classes correct?
    Each contestant will have different car # ?
    No b-nova guide adapters in stock class? I had already done that and got rid of the whole original guide system.
    Looking like mod class.


    Thanks,
    Steve

    I said stupid question time,I did not lie.

      Can we use Yellowdog urethane also?
      If not can you list the PG part# please.
      I'd like to reserve #7 in both classes if we are going to do so.

        1. Yes, same tire in both classes.

        2. Yes, each should have a different number, we'll probably offer a printable car number graphic at some point.

        3. Correct, stock is mostly stock.

          I think we'll just stick with a single tire. We'll post the tire number for easy ordering.

          There will be minor adjustments to the rules.

                They should be Paul Gage. I'd like to settle on a single tire/compound to reduce the tires wars portion. All the stock cars will use the one mentioned above. Tuners can find one of the PG tires with the same compound that will fit.

                  January 15 is the cutoff date. Cars must be to race central by then. That's almost 5 months. Procrastinators and those that typically wait until the last of the last minute have much time to spend in rapt anticipation. The rest of us can use that time to test and tune.

                    Just FYI for anyone who wanted to try/use the Shapeways chassis', they require the Slotit LMP style guides. I used the snap in type LMP guide from a Lola I have and it worked but the guide post would come out of the chassis rather easily. I replaced it with a screw in type LMP guide and that solved the problem all together.
                    Hope this helps....

                        I assume that in stock class its obligatory to use plastic stock rims and gears,correct?A nightmare to tune.

                          The BRM guide for the stock Carrera chassis is S-126, not 156.

                            One car per number, please. Duplicated numbers are host's nightmare.
