Thats all I see on the list. Myron is the one who said the Novaks were legal. Not me.

per the USVTA rules the Novak 25.5 is legal for F1...no ruling that I am aware of at this time about the New Novak?

Might have to make the trip down to run this. I'd love to race against the "big boys" to see how I'd fare.

Gotta check the "wife schedule."

I would like to thank the tracks and race promoters that contacted me about this event and the schedule. Its nice to have understanding among each other so events don't overlap and cause racers to miss one or the other.

I will try and keep our schedule the same year after year to help with this.

Thank you

The 2 motors right now ROAR legal are Motiv and Team Scream. There are 2 motors submitted that have passed the technical inspection and just need availability confirmed and final approval votes . I will post here when they are listed so that you guys will know. Just want to wait until everything is final before letting you know.

USVTA has allowed the Novak 25.5 motor, since it is the USVTA motor. It is not listed by ROAR, however.

okay in your opinion do we leave the Novak as a legal USVTA F1 motor?...to go along with the other 2 ROAR motors?....or do we remove it till it passes ROAR approval?

The novak was actually the basis for the rules, so it's fine. The ironing is delicious....

Send it to me. I'll even run it at the Southern Nats in my car.

Kind of proves my point about 25.5 F1. People are already out buying ROAR approved 25.5 motors and trying to find the 'best' 25.5 motor. Whether or not this exercise is a worthwhile endeavor, it's the perception that it's necessary to spend lots of $$$ to win is what I'm concerned about.
