Sure, can you help push them through quicker and cut the fees?

I usually get the electrical testing done in less than two weeks, but I have no control over the final approval. As for the testing fee, all I can say is: Baby needs a new set of racing shoes.

I know - just kidding (kinda), your part is two weeks -- its the two-three months before its listed is weird part.

In all honesty (for everyone), we want to make sure we send in just what we need to for approval, the we don't want to send in pieces that ultimately no one is using for ROAR events then we spent a bunch of money on nothing. So we are waiting a little to see buying and racing trends.

Well that 1s speedo has a nice price on it so I would definitely like to run it in some roar races.

The SkyRc version (the OEM Manufacturer) is Roar legal.

All the speed controls/software G Force has, are designed to meet ROAR requirements. The act of getting the items submitted to ROAR and waiting for it to be posted, is being done.

Got the G6P charger a couple weeks ago - can't seem to find the Lipo max voltage cutoff. Any ideas? There's a max mAh cutoff but that won't really do for me.

Lipo voltage cut off is 8.4v for 2s, 16.8 for 4s.

Because it was brought up on this thread before. G Force motors and speed controls have been sent to ROAR for approval. As soon as we have the updated confirmation --- we will let you know.

Thanks for the information, however, I was looking for information on how I might be able to CHANGE the cut-off voltage - to lower it to 8.35 for 2S, for instance. Competitors products include this feature - if the G6P does not currently, I'd hope it will be included in the next firmware upgrade.
