I'm posting this as a reference.
I am tentatively planning a fall meet and hypo21 has talked about a summer meet. We have agreed to use the same rules to keep it simple for interested local members. You may post questions and comments here. Any rule changes resulting from your input will be made to this first post.
Penn/Jersey 2011 race rules
1) Stock ........This class requires the motors, gearbox tooth count, tire size, and battery voltage to remain stock as sold new. (12 volt max) Stock 24 volt cars will run in the stock +6 class unless there is a sufficient car count to make a separate class.
2) Stock +6 .....Same as above +6volts. (12v at 18 volts and super 6 at 12 volts)
3) Modified Stock ..Any combination of stock components. Scooter controllers allowed. Stock 550 or 700 motors only. (24 volts max). Traction bands allowed on the front tires only(unless they are stock)
4) Unlimited ...... Should be based on a PowerWheel (peg, Saftey 1st, etc) body/chassis. Electric only. Traction bands allowed on the front tires only(unless they are stock, ie-if you want rear traction bands, go find some wheels that came with them)
General.....Sealed batteries only! Bike helmets required to race (fullface style highly recommended). Motorcross style safety gear required for motorcycles and quads in the unlimited class(vehicles that leave hands and/or feet exposed).Last edited by taz11 on 13 Sep 2011 09:21, edited 3 times in total.

I am also considering a small signup fee this year.
Reasons for this......
1) offset some of the cost of trophies in a tough economy.
2) The past 3 events have had a higher that acceptable no show rate. As a parent I realize that unforseen situations arise. I am trying to eliminate the "my wife scheduled a picnic for that day" cancellations two days before the meet. I'm hoping that If it costs a few bucks, people will take it a little more seriously. It's not fair for those who do show up and have no one to race with.
Thoughts on this are welcome.
