I will update this once more of the details are known.

I haven't heard of any class changes so those should be good.

I'm fairly certain the 4wd Classic class is 1995 or earlier, but no matter...basically anything pre-XX4.

Also, for 4wd buggy, you can run a 4wd Classic if you want to (but with a 10.5 for the class). Erich has allowed that. It's just that a lot of those older buggies don't hold a candle to the XX4. The CAT 2000 and the '94/'95 YZ10 are the only "Classic" 4wd buggies that are competitive with the XX4, at least based on my experience.

Planning to daytrip it on Sunday. My ESC and motor went tits up tonight at Critters so had to swap them out. Assuming everything works out in next couple of days I plan to be there.
