Hey all,
We had a Vice magazine reporter and photographer tag along with us last November for the Baja 1000, which we didn't finish for the fifth consecutive time. The story just hit.

So why is class 11 unpopular? Or is it? Just looking at the post dates on this site there doesnt seem to be much going on. Why is this? Of all the classes this one looks to be the most affordable and would be an easy(ier) for newbies like me. Is 5-1600 much more popular?

Ray,
It depends how you define "popular". There's not as much activity on this site as there has been in the past because most of the chatter has migrated to a handful of Class 11 discussion groups on Facebook. C11C is still the best repository for building a car. Class 11s are still a fan favorite. Some people have a tendency to start with Class 11 and then decide they want to go faster and switch ot 5/1600 or Trophy Bugs. Heck, even trophy truck drivers have respect for Class 11 teams. So, again, it goes back to your definition of "popular"

Those are all social groups of people talking about racing. Class 11 Coalition (this place) is the definitive place to figure out how to build one and get advice on racing.
