First time going to the Champs and looking forward to a great race.

For motor tech I understand you want us to bring the motor disassembled. Do you have a schedule for when motor tech will take place? Can I have more than one motor per class in case in case I do something dumb and smoke a motor? Seems like a time consuming part of tech and I'm trying to not be the guy slowing things down.

Sorry if this has already been answered somewhere in the thread. I didn't see it but admittedly was going through the posts quickly.

Thanks,
Chuck

Motor tech will be available for a few hours Thursday and most of morning Friday, as well as available at various times the rest of the weekend. Each Driver will be allowed to tech 3 motors per class.

One thing important for motor tech. Bring it to them at room temperature.

Thanks Ron. You know I'm about the most non-technical person alive so I wouldn't have even thought that would matter. See you in a few days.

I took one up warm last year and they wouldn't tech it until it cooled. Waited in line just to do it over.

What if we keep them insulated by storing them down the back of our pants?

Yes! Good to know other people want to see dudes in jeans on their knees and bent over.
