Here are a couple of Quickie 500 photos. Quickie started off as an easy entry into racing and became too specialised and too fast. No surprise there. It's happened to every other entry level class. Also racers naturally like improving things and they like racing with their friends so they don't always move up a class. Q500 is still there so it has to be the worlds most enduring class which suggests something was right from the get-go.

No problem Q500 racer appears to have Fox Q500 motor with tuned exhaust which was a cheat if ever I saw one. It was banned in the UK
Two typical Q500 racers. Bottom one has a Rossi 40 motor which was a good consistent quantity. Not a V-tail in sight!
