Alex one of the World best onroad racers will be joining us to run 1/12th Modified and Modfied Sedan.
With the well know shortages of everything in the world, the RC World is no different and we need to get our confirmed list of entries set to ensure we have enough spec motors for the event. If you are coming to the Champs and will be racing 1/12th Stock or WGT-R. We need you to make your entry ASAP. We need to get our final motor order into Hobbywing to ensure we have enough motors for everyone attending.

To meet the desires of the racers in this class, We will be changing the motor rules to be 21.5 Roar Legal bring your own motor. Full tech inspection will be done on all motors and must meet all Roar Rules.
