The only difference I see is clarification on the heatsink and fans:

25.5 brushless with 2C LiPo: Novak SS25.5 Pro brushless motor (pn:3425V) or Ballistic 25.5 (pn:3625V- stator only pn:S6625) Club (pn:3331) ONLY combined with any hard-cased 2C 7.4v LiPo pack up to and including 5000 mAh capacity. Novak motors are the ONLY motor allowed at this time. All house track rules regarding LiPo usage apply. Only physical motor timing advance is allowed, however Ballistic motors must not be advanced beyond the last line of the timing range sticker. 12.3 mm rotor diameter only (no "tuning" rotors are allowed, only stock Novak rotors allowed). Using ceramic bearings in the motor makes you a dork. No modifications or optional parts allowed on motor can, endbell, stator, or rotor. No cooling holes or other changes allowed to motor. Fans and external clip on heatsinks are allowed, but integral type heatsinks/fans including but not limited to those that require motor disassembly to mount are illegal.

stoking the fire...

how many fans are allowed

I know some rule sets allow only one fan either on esc or motor.

I am assuming you are allowing 2 fans max....

I would inform the dealership that more than one car style raced in the series. You could always "arrange" to have the dealerships brand win the race.

As many as you can physically get on your car. ROARs rule is an attempt to stop people from over gearing but in my opinion it doesnt work

Associated makes a special dual fan unit for their TC4. Product #31037. I was wondering if the unit for the TC4 also fits the TC3? Anyone know?

They are a little pricey at $26.00 compared to like an Integy, but a nice option for sure. I hope they will work on a TC3, but I don't want to buy one before I know.

We did exactly that two years in a row at Bill Estes Ford here in Brownsburg, Indiana Pete! I belong to the Brownsburg Chamber of Commerce and I organized the event four years in a row. The second year, 2008, we did indoor rock crawling as a spectator event. The last two years, we did parking lot racing! It was called the "Motorsports Celebration" and because Brownsburg is home of the NHRA US Nationals and a lot of their teams, it was also focused on drag racing. We are close to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway too. This town is nuts about racing. We also had an auction with motorsports memorabilia a Car Show and an ADULT Pinewood Derby Car race. That too was a hoot! Pinewood Derby and beer. What a combination!

The RC races really got a great response. People grabbed some BBQ and a cold one and watched every one. We had our local Hobbytown guru, Bob C, come with their track and timing system. It was fun. We ran for about two hours and then joined the party.

One of the constant questions you will get is, "can I drive one?" so be prepared for that either with a car people can try, or an explaination about how fragile they are.

Picture below shows sliders, but we also ran VTA.

Here's a link to the website with lots of photos: www.BrownsburgRacing.com
