I gotta give Neil his props for the win. I figured if it wasn't Ryan (or...Ryan M), he would be the one to do it. Does Cragg run for Reedy?

The most dominating thing about this whole weekend?

Same 3 guys battled for the win in 4whl and 2whl.

When was the last time the same 3 guys were that dominant at a race?

Wow, Neil ran 5 cells instead of 6. The Orion guys were doing that at the 2003 worlds.

Congrats Neil! Can't wait to see the vids!

"Unless a lower number is specified in the class requirements, a maximum of six cells is
permitted in any vehicle motor power pack used in ROAR-sanctioned competition."

From ROAR rules....

I guess this would mean less than 6 is legal, but for the life of me I cannot think of the benefit in running, but not connecting, the 6th cell?
Adrian, or anyone else care to shed some light on this for us ??

Weight. When you normally race with six cells in the car, going to a 5 cell pack would throw the weight distribution off.

Well that means 27 world titles for Reedy power! Man, Mike Reedy did good for himself...his stuff is still doing well even though he has retired.
