I'm assuming there will only be a mod sedan class? Any 17.5 or 13.5 sedan class? 1/12th scale?

All EOS classes will be available. I completely expect to see a 17.5 sedan class.

Yep, running an electric RC is like going to the driving range, it's not the same as a real golf course....

On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

That may be the case but when the "driving range" is faster, cheaper, and has more players, it turns into TopGolf and people have more fun.

Anyways, enough of the electric/nitro debate. What Juan said is true. Times are changing and everyone in the industry knows this. The Biggie and Big-E will be fun for everyone no matter what you drive.

Thanks Chris. I have no problems sharing the track with the electric r/c racers. I see many nitro races around the country now incorporating some electric TC classes into their programs because more racers, no matter what they race, is better for the overall health of racing, especially the outdoor tracks. It is time to embrace some changes that may hopefully help the outdoor onroad racing scene.

I've been doing it for years! Both should get something out of it. Time format might change though.

I don't think including some electric racing with the SWCS or the Texas Biggie is a bad thing. You could get some cross-pollenation with a few possibly getting a nitro to run and vice-versa. Personally, I love running nitro more than electric (I have both). Attendance has been down with the SWCS for a few years now and if including an electric class or two will help invigorate the Series, I see nothing wrong with the inclusion.

I'm certainly in favor of more racers, even if they are electric...
