Pete, these rules seem reasonable.

 

Is Fantasy going to run these cars on a regular basis or will it be run on special events? It should be a lot of fun.

I heard they weren't going to make yardsticks any longer.

Bill.

 

Thanks! It is a lot of fun.

 

The "classic plastics" are a regular Thursday night feature of the Fantasy racing program. The typical car weighs in at 130 to 140 grams and the 50K H&R motor is the standard unit. Corvette coupes (Revell Snap-Tites abound) are the dominant body style with a few Camaros, Mustangs, and the odd NASCAR sedan taking part as well.

 

There's a special event in the works.

The local club/home 1/24 Hardbody group has run a somewhat similar class for years, along with some Protrack and FCR chassis in the mix.

When properly tuned, those H&R chassis handle nicely. :)

Yes, they do... and it really surprised me. I was expecting something more like a drunken hippopotamus.

They're certainly a big improvement over a FCR. :laugh2:
