Rough 2010 class numbers

here's results of the poll to see what everyone in the forum is going to run next year, ofcourse the results are only an indication, as not everyone who races in New Zealand has an account in the forum.

I'm glad there is great support for the new electric Super Stock Touring class

2010 New Zealand Radio Control Car Class Numbers

What class(es) are you racing next year?

Thought it'd be a good idea to create a thread in the forum to ask what you are racing next year, this covers, electric and IC, on and off-road.

So make sure you vote, will be interesting to see the results
