For the brushed motors, you can bring your own. You will be limited to 3 br/bl motors and they will be teched. We will have CO27's and Komodos available at the track thanks to Roar at a reduced price. As soon as that price is known we will post it.
In the 13.5 rubber touring class, any roar approved 13.5 is legal. You will be limited to 3 sets of Jaco green preomount tires. You can bring your own and they will also be available at the track. You must present them new and unopened to the roar official at check in.
