It will be good to see more solid axle cars in the mod class, especially Toyota based. I plan on racing my 85 4runner in the race as well, on leaf springs of course!

I have been reading up in this forum to try to get ideas on how to go faster on leaf springs. Thanks for the ideas.

does werock even have a ftoy class anymore? Last couple of times I've checked event coverage there's been very few competitors in all of the classes and I cannot recall seeing a single ftoy.

The last comp at Donner had one Formula Toy, but there was only 15 buggies competing total. We had one Donner comp where there was 16 Formula Toys competing.
No one wants to cone dodge anymore, everyone wants to go fast.

WEROCK still cone dodging but also now has Dirt Riot Series - Formula Toy fits in just fine.

Looking at event pics and score sheets, I haven't seen a ftoy class. Sure you could show up with your money and they'll let you run. I keep seeing "comp legal" popping up in this thread, which makes no sense if there are no longer ftoy comps.

There is and always will be a Formula Toy class you just need more than one Formula Toy to show to have it.

So it's just a lack of interest on the competitors part? Would make sense and parallel what the other werock classes are seeing in terms of participation.

I think a lot of it is money and location. When we ran the west series in 2010, 3 of the 5 comps were 18 hours away. The first event cost me a grand in fuel alone. We just couldn't afford to compete the last 2 years in Cali and Az. The Utah events were fine because they were "close", meaning 5-7 hours away. There is an event put on in Delta Ut every may that has adopted an ftoy class, and we usually have 2-4 show, depending on other events in the area.

I may be misreading it but in the EMC thread over in the comp forum it looks like Ftoys will be competing against all the Mod Stocks? I thought it was a separate class?

Yes, you got it, Ftoys just qualify for Mod Stock.

Or run in a qualifier, and run "the big race"
