Let's do it, I've got something in mind......

Could Johnny Lightning wheels be allowed? Trust me, I'm not thinking about running a stocker, they just look like nicer wheels.

  • you would be fine but we have a racer that stretches the rules on rivets — model40fan
  • Smitty, this is getting old. If you have a problem with Cameron entering stockers you need to PM him and not complain about it here. — KandORacing
  • I thought the guy that ran the race makes the rules.....Stroller — Stroller

WAGON WARS!!!  We'll need to define what is a wagon...very specificly....

I just wanted to check, before I started tinkering...are these both considered Wagons?

Thanks!


Chris

Rules ? ... nows the time ... speak up ... your ideas wanted. 

  • The rules you listed earlier sound pretty good...my only comment is the 45 grams is a little light, but, I can make it work. — 72_Chevy_C10
  • Yup, same here...want to make the rules easy for new racers... not intimidating. I can shed weight also, well on the car at least — Traction-Event
  • i thought most bases would be plastic and didn't want them to have to add grams... lets go 50 Gs. — model40fan
  • 50G sounds good to me...I would have had to lighten the Woody to make 45G — 72_Chevy_C10
