I wish to do 17.5T motor for GT10 class instead of 21.5T for the next TQ series. GT10 guys are fast and enough to handle 17.5T. I agreed with 21.5T for the Rookie and Sportsman class.

Cool to see 21.5 for sportsman and rookie sedan next season, should be a little easier for those classes.

And now thats theres a new tire manufacture for VTA and new bodies, any possibility to have a VTA class rise up?

And on the topic of tires, would be cool to see a possible pre mount spec tire for F1 maybe? I know in real life F1 has multiple tire choices, but would be cool to see a more level playing field, specially with the art of mounting shimitzu tires on tamiya rims is kinda tricky

Also, we need to do some weight limit for the touring car class. Switching to 21.5T motor causes more sensitive about the weight.

I have used the CRC Spec tires or Ulti X-Med (rear), X-Hard (front) for 17.5 and 13.5 on the black carpet.

I use the Tuning Haus wheels for the Shimizu F1 tires. They are molded to better fit the Shimizu tire (Tamiya foam tire was made just for foam tires). Much easier to glue up a set than on the Tamiya wheels. The issue I have with Spec tires for Club Racing is unless the track is getting a discount from the tire supplier to pass along to the racer, why be forced to have to run a specific tire ? If it is a local track, the local racers will figure out what is the best tire for them to run.

+100 on this. Think GT Sedan should stay 17.5. The power is good for this class. Go to a 21.5 motor and it slows it up enough that it becomes all about motor and battery.

Would also like to see weight and battery voltage checking come back again. With the new HV batteries, running at 8.6 vs 8.44 or 8.40 volt gives an advantage. And if I strip my A800 of all the weights and go to titanium screws, I can easily be under 1300g weight.

I have witnessed myself that some of the racers there charging to 8.7V so i agree with Kevin about teching battery voltage. Funny thing is those particular racers seem to hit the boards just a bit harder. hahaha

If ROAR is approving the HV packs, then why can't we charge at the higher voltage?

I fully agree to check the weight and battery voltage.
Roar approved the Batteries to be within spec for the case and msds for the chemistry. the max charging voltage is set to be 4.22V per cell.
