Wow guys... you want the technology and now you get worried?
I believe our rules of Certificate of Complicance to be submitted with four battery packs covers all of these concerns. We destroy two packs in our testing and the documentation the supplier has to submit will clearly state whats in side the hard case. Below is a section of the published rules. Guys, I really recomend reading the rules.. all of them....
They are extremely informative and state many safety features that are expected to be followed... even off the track and the pit area. (refer to rule # 126.96.36.199 General Information)
This is new technology and we feel as though we provided a very comprehensive set of rules, guidelines and advice as to proper usage. Also, we feel our testing procedures are very complete and the documentation we require and the affiliation we require from the supplier/reseller/distributor also goes a long way in the reliability of the product.
188.8.131.52 Lithium Polymer battery packs may be used to power electric racing cars if a Certification Of Compliance has been received and accepted by ROAR from the manufacturers of the battery packs. The Certification of Compliance indicates that the Lithium Polymer cells
internal to the battery packs have been tested in accordance with UN T1-T8, the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Test and Criteria (ST/SG/AC.10.11/Rev.4) and passed the acceptance criteria. Lithium Polymer
battery packs that do not have UN certification must pass the ROAR tests listed below and performed by the ROAR Li-Poly Test laboratory. Certification of Compliance to these
test requirements and acceptance criteria shall be provided by the Original Manufacturer of the batteries. The Certification of Compliance will apply to all Lithium-Polymer products from the Original Manufacturer and provided on a one time basis. The Certification of
Compliance can be sent directly to ROAR by the Original Manufacturer or supplied to ROAR by the Value Added Manufacturer that distributes the batteries. A Value Added
Manufacturer must also provide ROAR a Statement of Origin identifying the Original Manufacturer of the cells used in the battery pack and the number of battery packs
provided for sale within North America. The Value Added Manufacturer performs the assembly of cells into battery packs, installs the hard protective case and provides the
electrical hook up points. The Original Manufacturer is the manufacturer of the individual cells.
