      At the club level, if there’s enough, run them in different classes. If not, run them together, but score them as different classes.

    Matt has the right idea on how to handle the cars until there are enough to fill thier own classes.. What I find interesting is Richard’s (and Losi’s) theory that SCB will be another stepping stone towards a “hardcore” racing buggy like the 22. No doubt that’ll be the case for some, but SCT and SCB shouldn’t be viewed as just an entry level or transitional class. The fact that Short Course has become the single largest class at most electric tracks around the country is proof positive. Frankly, I’d eventually like to see a 22 – caliber chassis under a short course buggy or truck body. I consider myself a fairly hardcore racer – I’ve owned and raced nearly every Losi and Associated race vehicle produced over the last 20 – 25 years. I’m pretty respectable behind the wheel, though I typically stick to club racing. One thing I’ve always, ALWAYS felt was missing from RC racing is a bit more scale realism. The cars we’ve been racing typically resemble NOTHING in the 1:1 racing scene. Some racers seem to have the attitude that requiring scale appearance in a class ups the “toy” or “geek” factor too much. People might get the wrong idea. Wouldn’t want that, would we? :-/ It’s that scale realism that’s sucked new people in to our hobby, brought them to our tracks, and converted guys like me – hardcore racers with a soft spot for scale appearance, to short course.
