    Not a complaint. Just sharing Terry. In the event of a tie for the Oneida trophy, the racer that had more competition wins.

    I noticed you jumped to 5 boats to make. Interesting take. You guys are still on our list. We'll get our heads together before signing up to focus in on making heats for ya.

    Yup, thanks. The past few years you needed two perfect scores and the contestant with the most boats in those two classes wins in case of a tie, last year was our first tie.

    Yes, we decided to go to five boats per class to keep the competition level up, looking forward to having you guys again!

    All fixed, was my mistake.

    Gonna run 6 laps for Offshore this year so tune accordingly!

    Could we add "Q" Offshore to the list.
    I know for sure that we would get enough entries for that class, seeing that it would include both Mono's and Cat's.
    This would then let the people with a "Q" Mono a place to run.

    "Q" offshore added, again 6 laps so prop accordingly.

    That's a pretty good idea. Might not be enough Q mono to make but combine them with some kitties and maybe it will. Honest to goodness......if Larry and I prop any higher we'll need parachutes.

    What are the motor rules for the limited FE classes ???

  16. #16

    Default

    I suspect they'll do spec instead of limited since most attending are running that. I'm sure they'll chime in. If they're cool with it I'll post a link our supplemental set.

    Eliminates the Blackjack, GEICO, the new UL19, all the Promarine boats. The new Proboat 2000kv is pretty solid. Not legal anywhere but full P but not too shabby.

    Oooops, guess I ASSumed you guys were still using the NAMBA list.

    Can someone please send me what rules you are now operating under? Or better yet please post them and we'll go with that!

    ps: IMPBA really, really needs some guidance on this...

    Hey Terry. A link to what we run as a club, ran in Atlanta, and ran at the Michigan Cup.

    I've been all but promised an active campaign to thwart any such limited proposal despite these classes being a nice entry point to racing. Where we screwed up was having a list of motors in the first place. We're trying a simple size limit. So far no particular motor is kicking everyone's butt. You can't buy wins. Limited sport was won at the Cup with a $57 motor. Second place was a $275 motor. Hmmmmm

    Here's what we've been do'n.

    Thanks for that, here's a direct link:

    Dunno why anyone would want to stop a National "spec" rule proposal but I'm really not educated on your FE classes so will stay out of it.
