I've got a stock ascender (blazer) with the floating battery is it legal to run? And what class would it be in?

It's definitely legal. Tyre size (if I'm not mistaken) will make it a class 2.

By "floating battery" I'm assuming you mean the way the stock ascender has the front of the battery tray connected to the front axle? If so, then its not strictly SORRCA legal:

Batteries must be chassis mounted and should be hidden from view.
And ref. http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/scale...ml#post5118580

WP gave you the explanation, "It's not so much that the Ascender battery mount makes it an awesome performer, it's just that others will exploit that rule if they can use it to make their rigs perform better." That is why it is not legal, not to mention, the rule was determined way before Vaterra came out with the Ascender.
When the Ascender came out, the battery mount caused quite a stir and AFAIK it has been left that you need to unlink the battery tray's connection to the front axle.

... all that said, I'm not sure us folks at LSTR are bovered?
