I am working on confirming the gear ratio. The sooner I announce it the better right.

If it is under your clothes then sure go for it if it makes you feel comfortable.

My recollection was that it has been 4.5 for several years, and that running 4.6 gave me the best overall times.
Looking forward to IIC again :-)

The Tekin Spec GT class will use a 4.7 FDR. Genuine Tekin Flex Jacket wire will be provided again and must be used in the class. Shortening of the wires is allowed and a sensor harnesses will be provided. Timing will be set to match all motors kv at the factory to assure a level playing field to maximize the closeness of racing.

Default Scotty is away and left me in charge.

Amateur class drivers. For those of you have participated in prior years feel free to chime in with rules that I might have missed.

1. No R/C related stickers on the body
2. No R/C related manufacturer shirt/pants/shorts on the driver stand. You will have to turn the shirt inside out.
3. No R/C related hat while on the driver stand.

Hi Kraig,

Can we use our own sensor wire so we can run short (55mm) so we have less wires dangling ?

Thank you,
Panda

I don't remember the length of the wire provided but you are more than welcome to bring yours along and ask to swap it out.

Hey Dal,

You coming to the IIC? If I go to the truck race, would you want some race item that I could bring back for you?

Bill

Attention all not running Pro Ten, you will not be able to purchase testicles at the local hobby shop, but I'm sure the hotel shop will have appropriate female hygiene products.

Done. Thanks Dal.

Hope to see you at Speedworld soon. Speedworld is awesome with its new berms. And, if we can muster the drivers, Jerry will run the WGT-R class.
