Because we consider this an international event, we are more concerned about the battery being in a hard case and the voltage reading.

This sounds like a can of worms. Orion has developed a 3.8V per cell battery WITH A HIGHER DISCHARGE RATE...

Need a quick ruling on its legality at the IIC from Kraig/Scotty.

Yep, agree on this one, lol.
I would like to know what the performance difference is, if any, between this and the normal cells if charged to the same voltage.

Maybe I got a bad pack but my Orion HV shorty performs worse than my regular Orion shorty packs when charged to same voltage. Personally I think IR matters more and one you can feel a difference under higher amp charging.

Just so you girls/guys know Scotty makes all of the final calls on the rules. I have compiled your questions and sent them along to him. I will keep pressuring him for answers.

Awesome job Kraig - I was going to ask how much bling is too much. Then remembered it was Vegas so we can never have too much

Default World GT-R Entries?

Hi Kraig,

Hopefully, this is not a question for Scotty...

The World GT Rubber entries on the IIC website stop at the letter "M" (James McGee).

Is there some technical limitation with that page in regard to showing the rest of the entries for the class?

Not a big deal. Just curious about the actual number of WGT-R entries.

Many thanks.

Bill

The sooner the better but we have had people add classes when the arrived to check in.

That list only shows the confirmed entries and right now I see a total of 11 which includes confirmed and unconfirmed entries.

So...if your name is not listed and you signed up you should confirm your registration with Scotty at the e-mail address listed on this page.

We will use the WGTR list that is posted here in the The Official World GT-R Rules and Discussion thread.

Thanks Kraig! I'm one of the unconfirmed on the WGTR list so I'll make sure to get my payment in. Can spouses pay to be included in the Sunday dinner?
