Got my first win and TQ running outdoors on asphalt. Ran the Protoform Firebird body. I was worried my bald front tires wouldn't work but they did!

Hey Rob. Just a rules clarification (although I think I already know the answer).

I have a driver who is using a one-way on the center pulley (only active on the front belt side). Legal?

He reads the forums and would like to hear your ruling. Thank you.

There will always be some difference in motors even within a brand, but most of the ROAR approved motors should be pretty close… at least those on the good side of the range.

FYI the Tekin 25.5 has also been sent to ROAR for approval and we are looking forward to being part of this excellent class of racing.
...... And when its approved I would like to be the first to run with the Tekin banner.
