Classes

Here’s our class list. More details in Race Rules. Touring Car, Mini and Micro classes are not being run currently, but the information is retained here should those classes be run once more.

Short Course Trucks: the new rage in EP offroad, trucks like the Traxxas Slash, Team Associated SC10, HPI Blitz, Kyosho Ultima SC, Losi XXX-SX, Venom Gambler and plenty more to come. Our SC class is for 2wd, electric, trucks, with standard motors, or up to 13.5t brushless.  6-cell NiMh or 2sLiPo max and specifically approved tyres.  Draft rules are here on our dedicated SC page.  Traditional stadium trucks like the Team Associated RC10T4 run in our Tenth Buggy class until we have sufficient to run them on their own.

Stadium Trucks: Bigger than their 2wd buggy bretheren, these are quick, strong, fun and having a resurgence of popularity not seen since the 80’s. Examples include the Associated T4.1 , Team Durango DEST210, Losi 22T and more.

Buggies: 2wd and 4wd 10th scale electric buggies from Tamiya, Kyosho, Team Associated, Team Losi and plenty more. Classes split by 2wd and 4wd as numbers permit.

Run What Ya Brung: We’ll welcome anybody with an EP R/C car, and find a place for you to race, our Novice class is always there for new drivers to hone their skills in whatever vehicle they have.

8th Scale Buggies/Truggies/Trucks (Stopped racing at LRC 2013): The big bangers of R/C – 8th scale buggies and truggies running under electric power.  Team Associated’s RC8e / 8Te and the Traxxas E-Maxx or E-Revo are just a couple of examples in this rapidly growing class

Touring Cars (stopped racing 1/1/2013): 4wd Electric touring cars will be welcome (too many manufacturers to name). Ultimately we’ll split them into Novice and Pro-Stock, but initially all in together.

Minis (stopped racing 1/1/2013): The amazing Tamiya Mini is joined by the HPI Cup Racer in this pint-sized action class. Tamiya Rally cars are also welcome.

Micro: 16th and18th scale EP buggies and trucks…like the Team Associated RC18T and CEN ME16. Whilst we don’t have a dedicated class for these vehicles, they normally slot in with the Novice class.

Check our Rules page for full details on our current classes….but whatever electric powered R/C car you have, bring it down and we’ll find a place for you to race.
