There are only 3 wing classes that are all raced in Europe, South America and USA during the Worlds, 27 Light ( which is a class that isn't raced in the USA), 27 and Open. The Organizer can add any classes he wants, these are usually classes of national or local interest. At Port Jeff Int. 15 is a very popular class but is definitely a regional class only being run in the Northeast , MidAtlantic and the GreatPlains regions with a scattering of racers elsewhere. When the Worlds are in Brazil they run Spray Glue 20, a class only raced in Brazil. The only international racers to have arrived at Port Jeff so far is GuGu and his Brazilian ( and Miami) team, because of their interest in the C Can classes ( and G12 in particular) and his related biz interests in RedFox. Most of the other international racers will be arriving mid week for the regular program. This is probably more of an explanation then your question desired. but your attempt to denigrate the event due to your own ignorance deserved some sort of response.

I wasn't attempting to denigrate anything, and I am sorry that you read it that way.

Wing cars are not raced here in New Zealand per se. They are of novelty value only :(

When a Championship is called a "Worlds", I would have assumed (obviously incorrectly if your reply is anything to go by) that there would have been International competition.

The 'classes' raced in the USA are very foreign to us.

I rely on this BB to promote the results of the major competitions - magazines take months to get here :(

Even a photograph or two would be great :)

I don't recall you responding as quickly to the cheap East Coast 'digs' at the the recently held Scale Championships?

Forgive me for breathing.

If you reread your post its obvious it can only be read one way, as far as the Scale Nats is concerned I dont race scale and rarely comment on it, I believe I did ask a question about whether splitting the classes the way they do and when it is raced might have contributed to the lower turnout this year. Generally though I try to limit myself to comments on things I know something about, ask all the questions you want to, by all means, however your post wasn't a question it was a judgement based on, as you admit, your own ignorance. Maybe a better choice of words would have been appropriate.

ps, you can choose to breath or not, its entirely your choice and you don't need my forgiveness.

What are the heat lengths in International 15 VS. Boxstock? Also, what are the comparitive TQ times? Just trying to get a comparison in how fast I-15s are.

06-06-2004, 09:46 AM
Pro Box Car should do around Mid 2.6 to 2.7s

Pro 15 Car Should do A High 2.4 to low 2.5
