    Just skiped thru some of this and most is fairly accurite. However i dont see a standard set of rules ever really happining. Tracks makeup their own rules and classes and if your lucky enought to live within a reasonable distance your in like flint. Most tracks will help set up a class if your group can guaranty enought cars, witch *in reality is quite hard. Getting say 25 cars to show up every race for a minibuggy style race is a lot of work and moneys.LOT OF WORK< LOT OF MONEY.

Doing this will ensure that people can build a buggy similar to what someone cay buy "turnkey".

    The whole idea of this is to get a set of rules up that we can all live with (yea, I know - that's gonna be one tough project [smilie=banghead.gif] ). *If we can get everyone to base their vehicles on a given set of rules and then show up at tracks with rules in hand, it will show that we've become more focused and directed in our class. *

    We'd take the rules to the track owner/promotor/race director and say "Here, as a group of the Stadium Lites class, we're working on getting a set of rules that everyone can work with, please help us out by using these rules and allowing us to do the same." *The more unified we ALL are in our approach and the more we work together the more it will benefit us.

    One thing that I do plan on getting on a soap box about will be safety. * *
    That is the one major place that I feel we can not screw around with. *As I've said over and over, a couple extra hundred dollars getting the correct safety gear would more than be covered by one trip to the ER. *We just can't side step this aspect of our sport.

    Racing IS dangerous - it's a blast, but the potential for being hurt is there from the second the green flag drops until you get back in the pits and get out of the car. *The more we can do to minimize the chance for getting hurt, even if it costs a tad more than one wants to spend right off the bat, the better. *I'll probably remind everyone about this over and over until you guys are ready to shoot me (and, since I'm safety minded, I'll be wearing my bullet proof vest. HA!! *)


    I've had a couple people e-mail me some contact info for a couple track - thank you.
    If anyone wants to send me anything please do so - either via PM on this site or use K-fab@gcis.net * My old rwk@gcis.net email address is so full of spam I loose a lot of legit e-mails.

    Thanks guys for helping out and working on getting this idea off and running. * *[smilie=blowkiss.gif]

    I'll start working on getting a bit of a layout for our plans in motion fairly soon.
