Maybe you should talk to Jeff Cox or Bill Pinch.

Or maybe they should post it on here to get the word out. Im all for wing racing as long as its Group F restricted motors etc,they are a blast,cheap and kids can run them. As far as spending big money on a group 12 to win a trophy? I don't want any part of that. Hopefully the series will include our home track in Avon Park, ya need something besides hillclimbs to run on.

If you want to go faster than GpF I would recommend the PS-FK 12, $50 or so retail w/can BB... Awesome bang for the buck :good:

We can build group F wing cars for about 65 bucks total with a hawk 7 motor,they can turn laps of 3.6 to 4.1 on a 200 ft engleman. That's affordable racing
