If we do try this, I suspect a lot of electrics will either DNF or worse (the magic smoke will get out.) Nobody wants that.

Again, it's not up to me but my vote would be 20-25 mins. 21 mins is an easy, every 7 min pit, for Nitro's and electrics can have the long pit at the half way mark (11/12 mins) which is just what we had been running for mains so we know everyone's vehicle will make it at least to that point.

You guys may be on to something. Battery swaps for all Electric classes (Including SC)...could be an interesting experiment and really change the dynamics of racing.

Dave, buggy might have their own class. E-truggy has been light. If we are to run with the nitros I would be willing to try it, within reason.
