I just took a guess at the size for the dragsters. We must allow for the larger size say .700 max or whatever is figured as the biggest for the class. Bracket race, first one in awhile, should be fun. I will try to find a consistent car or 2. Will you be running a PSO class + the list races?
The stock 4gear dragster tires are taller than .550 so are some of the Door Slammer. Just got some of the cool new speed slicks and mine on a stock 4gear wheel are .666 I have some Door Slammer at .575. The smaller .490/.500 Super Tires are more for inline and xtraction types. The stock AW Super III is I believe .490, I have a set of JelClaw dune buggy tires on cut down Vincent wheels that come in at .510 for that chassis. Just my two cents.
Sam put me down for January 27,28, 29 all entries here by 26th. Classes are Bracket Race, PSO, Match Racing.
I agree we should put a size limit on tires to avoid weird looking cars but I think just a max diameter of say .490 for all classes except the dragster classes where maybe a .550 diameter would be allowed. Width should be ignored. I have no problem with realism but I would only make it a suggestion in the rules and not set in stone. I never saw an Indy or F1 car at a drag strip either.
We have been running with a minimum recommended voltage. Racemaster can go up from there or keep it at that. I also prefer black tires for realism, but I think Bear Creek will allow colored tires for this season and see how it goes. I feel that guidelines are needed to keep things from getting out of hand and keep the playing field somewhat level. Tire size maximum diameter should be mandated by NTRA in my opinion. I am assuming we are talking about diameter for the most part. I know width has been mentioned. I will vote but have no problem putting that out there. I have competed in several sports and hobbies....there's ALWAYS the guy that likes to push the limit of ridiculous. Others will want to be different just for the sake of being different. One persons idea of cartoony is anothers idea of cool. No one like that here at this time, but there has been in the past. There have been a couple of tracks that have run proxy races here in the past on wall warts. They did the best they could with what they had and we got another event as a result. It's tough trying to tune for that, but they were still good events. Gotta turn that amp setting waaay back on the adjustable power supplies to tune. Body rules....as I said I like realism. I know there are always exceptions, but typically you don't see certain cars at the strip unless it's open bracket Friday night. I personally don't want to see passenger cars, tuners, exotics, indy cars, etc.
