We have the answer for you!
This season we are suggesting our Street Touring Class for Oval AND On-Road for anyone who may be looking at picking up a controller for the first time or just the first time in awhile. This class is meant to be a beginner friendly, kid friendly, inexpensive and a fun class that you can race on oval or on-road (or both).
What is Street Touring you may ask? Here is the basic rule set:
1/10 Plastic tub, vintage pre 2000s, or true budget type chassis from Traxxas, Tamiya, HPI, Redcat, RJ Speed, Express sport chassis etc. 2 or 4wd. THIS IS A LOW COST CLASS. Motors: Any brushed motor (12t Titan, Silver can, etc.) 8.4 Volts Max, Servo: Budget metal gear, Tire: Kit tire or any rubber tire with tread. Any street appearing car body. Minimum weight: 1500. FWD no minimum weight. ride height: 5mm, If the race director thinks your car is too "advanced" for the class you will be asked to run the unlimited class. RTR max base cost(new): $329, Max kit base cost(new) $149. Don't spend a ton of money on this class!
Some examples of just some of cars you can choose from: Traxxas 4-tec 2.0 or 3.0 (Brushed only, no VXL), HPI RS4 Sport 3, Kyosho Fazer, Tamiya, TT01E, Tamiya TT02, Redcat Lightning Stock Car, etc. Or perhaps you have an old touring car laying around collecting dust (pre 2000), now is your opportunity to get it back on the track!
