Entered!

Do we need to run the control stock motor in 1/12th Stock?

Can we use control motors from previous XRS series (I have one from 2016/7)?

No Control motors for 1:12th, yes you can use the Control Motors from last year.

Yes Mark it has. It had me confused as it had Mark as name and Wallin entered in the home club which I thought was a typo.

All good now mate. I will update.
