It would be helpful, Doug, if you guys would post exactly what your classes are for those of us who can't access your rulebook... I would be interested to know what these records relate to.

SS Mono is officially called Super Sport. Basically a mono Hull with a fully stock Zenoah 260 and canister muffler. We should of called it LSG-Limited Mono. :hide: LOL!

Kevin's Classes were in Twin Large Scale Gas Mono which I believe is a new trials class.

and I'm sure you know what T- Cat is but for those that don't know its basically a 10S powered Cat. Any size up to 60 inches. Twins are permitted.

Congrats fellas!!!

Unfortunately Huntsville got cancelled last weekend.

Next IMPBA SAW Stop.... Elizabeth City, NC next weekend. Looks like we're going to have a nice FE turnout!
