Maybe we can alternate WGT every other race or month and see if it picks up.

As much as I love F1...F1's participation has been pretty low lately to the point where we haven't even had enough to run it for a few races. WGT seems to be drawing more people already than F1. Maybe we could alternate F1 with WGT and see how it goes. I too am concerned about class dilution but this happens more often within the same class of car like stock and mod TC or stock and mod 1/12th. Typically you see less dilution between different types of classes like pan and TC because they don't usually attract the same people. But with our small total turn out there would likely be some dilution.

I'm not saying we kill off F1. But with turn out the way it has been if we alternate we can find out if there is enough interest to keep the class going. If there's F1 I'll be there...that's one of my favorite classes. But participation has been non-existent lately. Hopefully there will be enough for F1 come the 2013 season. Jonathan should be back by then so that should make for 4-5 solid entries with Phil joining in.

not sure if it will take off though, since it seems to be contained inside Japan.

Awesome! Sounds like we will have a regular class then. Maybe we can try WGT on practice sundays and see how it goes.

Keep in mind these are just discussions of ideas. They may or may not lead to a class in the future.

I think that they are 12th scale cars.

Got my speedo for WGT. Not bad, $140 for a Viper.

It came pre-wired with 14 ga wire. Would that be too stiff for the WGT car? Don't if it has A30 or A55 software in it.
