I see the rules have been updated....no lipo for expert? Hmmm, gonna have to think about open, but it is any tire/rim combo (with limitations), and I just bought a fresh set of stockers for expert.

Looks like the rules changes a bit and Lipo was dropped for expert. However a decision has been made to allow 2s lipos in expert. Hope this helps.

Most likely no one. However, if you want to run spec class you will need it for this race and any other race in the country that runs spec. No need to complain, just run expert or open. The point of a spec class is to keep the performance about the same so the drivers skill comes into play more than his equipment.

For spec, is the following still true...

...or...do we have to follow the rules on the website and use 6 cell unmatched stick packs in their "shotgun" tubes?

Hi James,

Can you clarify this? Can we run 2s lipos in Expert?
