    What about a class for people with more skill than money. A class where you have to use any six cell pack and any brushed motor. To see who can make the most streamlined, lightest, and frictionless car. This would be the hardest competition.

    That's easy, I just won that one. 6x5 motor w/ the best GP3300's money can buy in a 540 conversion micro or a chopped 1/12 scale. That's all anyone would enter. Or maybe a few chopped Bolinks too.

    I know salt flats wouldnt work, but it would be cool.

    There is a military base by my house. All of the guys have nutty fast RC's and ue them at an old runway.

    But radio range is a problem.

    On the topic of thrust-powered cars: these were ruled out for two basic reasons. First, safety. Once ignited, there's no way to shut down a rocket. Turbines are throttle-able, but you're still basically driving a torch. We will allow cars that use a turbine to spin a transmission (like the late Don Vesco's Turbinator: http://www.teamvesco.com/), which is safer and more technically interesting. That brings to reason two for the "no thrust" rule: it's too easy to go fast. The challenge won't be going fast, it'll be stopping! And with the exception of the radio gear, the cars would use very little "RC" stuff, which would be a bummer. From a magazine point of view, we're hoping The Challenge will generate some really trick cars we can do articles on, cars that will inspire readers to build their own creations. I think thrust cars would just be javelins with a rocket in the rear and a receiver under the nose cone.

    Some things you aren't likely to see there: Superchargers, turbochargers or nitrous.

    I predict the fastest set up will be a simple one, brute horsepower(Electric or Nitro) on a pan type chassis car. Any other type of complicated drivetrain or suspension eats up power, a waste. Aerodynamics will be a huge factor also.

    A trophy and bragging rights are the big prizes for the moment, and all the motivation required for the manufacturers. I can't think of any manufacturer that wouldn't want the title "World's Fastest RC Car" (WFRCC) attached to their brand! There's no additional prize (at the moment) for the Independent Team and Individual classes, but if you win I'm sure you'll have no problem securing sponsorship to defend your title at the 2006 WFRCC Challenge, so that's sort of a prize. Plus you'll certainly be featured in RC Car Action as the builder of the WFRCC.

    Even if there were some outrageous prize, I think the winning Independent Team and Individual will be the guys who race strictly for the glory. Isn't that what pushed guys liked Craig Breedlove to go ever faster on the salt flats? Or was there a prize involved? I'm not being sarcastic, I really don't know!

    Will the coverage in RCCA be like any other race coverage, with the 10 fastest times in each class? I think it would be cool to see how fast some of the other competitors were.

    Just stay home if all you care about is what's in it for you. I'm sure you would be a top draw for the show, but I guess everyone will have to live without you.

    You are right. Its totally unnecessary to come in here and tell them to be sure there's a prize waiting for you if they want you to show up.

    Let's get real with this competition and include the rest of the country instead of some remote location in the USA. You need to get it a little closer to the middle of the country like Lowe's Motor Speedway near Charlotte, NC. This would be more convient to the rest of the country than the California Speed Challenge. Lowe's Motor Speedway would probably put up some money and promote it to the general public real heavy to help RC racing.
