This poll is open to all that intend to race RTR in District 14 during 2010.
I am really happy with the input so far. The reason we need to do this polling with such detailed rules, is to keep the competition fair, and keep the box stock products competitive.
I have been doing some R&D with an RC car. I have never raced an RC car, so I bought a Traxxas Slash 2wd. This runs in a stock class at a local track I had never been to. I went to the track, talked to the people, bought the truck, practiced it, and raced it the next day. I got last place. They do not have any rules posted for their class. The truck costs $240 RTR, and the fast guys that are winning are racing $200 kits with high end motors and ESC's, aftermarket tires, high end shocks, and I'm sure there is some unknown modding that a newbie (like me) have no idea about. Of course they are also VERY good drivers. I still had fun racing my truck, and I will be back, but I felt like I was way behind.
I think that our rules will allow an absolutely new boater and even better experience. That is the goal, hide nothing, and make this class easy for a new boater to be competitve in. Tell them what modifications are allowed. People want to modify their stuff. I want to modify my truck.
This is going to work!
