I'm in on the Thunderslot. Not sure on the other class. Depends on what you all decide on.

Some food for thought.... IMO cars on a good surface with unglued tires will have the tires start to peel off the rim (tire chatter) well before the chassis gets to do much. A car without a pod should do fine against a car with a pod when using unglued tires.

How about just a GT class. Set a weight and motor limit (can't beat a piranha) and open it up to any modern style GT car. Think about all the cars choices people can have and it would be an interesting series seeing the different manufacturer's cars race against each other.

Along with a Thunderslot Lola class, with a send in slip on as long as you guys know the rear rim size as some may have swapped them out.

Any GT sounds like fun. Thunderslots- seems like there might be a lot of duplicate entries. And I don't have one.

I think the Thunderslot will be on of the two classes and we will run them basically with the nationals rules, I also like the idea of a modern GT race non podded. We can start thinking about rules they will be basic rules nothing overly intense.

Looking forward to it. Waiting on rules to be posted for both classes. Should be a good series.

Sounds like everyone would like nonpod chassis modern GT class with

It would be nice if we all run the same rear wheels, It would make every thing easlier for the slip on silicone tires if we all run the same tire. Thinking maybe 17X10 C.B.Design wheels
