I haven't discussed with Sam or anyone, but going by the general feel.

Stocks should remain as is, except the TT's gearing is now restricted to a max 25:55. No more squeezing in 28 or 29 pinions.

The only other change is allowing foams into the following classes:

GT
Pro GT
F1

GT will also remain open to any 4wd touring chassis.

Sounds good, must just confirm FF rules and discuss mini tyres.

I have posted some FF rules...maybe a good starting point even if we don't get time to test. I think the majority of all Hot Hatch entries will be starting the class using the silver can anyway.

So we limiting gear on Stock TT to 25:55? Then what about the other chassi's which runs along side TT01's in the stock Class?

"Class Rules
driver 101 on Tue Jan 18, 2011 9:57 am

.Chassis:
This Class is based on the Tamiya TT01, however the following chassis are also allowed: TB02, TL01, TA03, TA04 and the HPI E10. No carbon fibre chassis upgrades, except top brace. If you have a different make, please clear with race control at registration. Alu upgrades allowed. No drilling or cutting of chassis allowed, this includes altering to allow different gearing."

At the moment our TT class is dominated by...well....TT's.

There may be one TB02 next season, but the TT's are still the most popular chassis.

The gearing on the TT's have gone crazy, the guys are jamming in huge pinions and I believe a 52 spur reared its head as well. We have to limit this now, its slowly driving the class away from the entry level class its suppose to be. I also think that now we have said good bye to the one make class, this is also a way of getting everyone closer to each other.

Just a suggestion

What about all plastic tub chassis run together with no gearing restictions. Then maybe a class where just pro chassis run together.

You right naasif, would be nice to all run normal touring bodies. The race blob has been included and run for a while now, so I suppose we have all just gone with the flow.

im cool with foams in mini.

Only concern is: do we limit the diameter of the foams? if so then than means each cars diameter must be checked after each heat which can become a long night...or do we leave the diameter of the foams open....?

The diameter is important, big time.

I say this needs to be controlled if foams are allowed. 60 max.

Nooit guys, we already finish past my bedtym...
If we do foams then I say we all allowed 1 pair each for the season and the dude with the truer can check them once and mark the set in the beginning, like now, if he permits....else it's logistically gona be cumbersome

Woosies!!! If everybody arrived on time it would be a nonissue, like now, myself and hamish are sitting trackside .......waiting.......for better days, we could've measured tyres 100 times already!!! This is why some people don't race anymore!!

Maybe we need to start enforcing the starting time, if you late tuff titty!!!

In the real world duck sits on his couch all cosy!! Laughing

Where there's a will there's always a way, it can be done. What happened to weighing in and scrutineering after every race?? Was possible before......
