I want to thank the great guys and galsHobby Authority and MacLan for their support again this yeart. I just rec some nice door prizes that Im sure will not disappoint.

Thank you again Barbara and HA...

while we talking MacLan, please be advised that the MacLan 25.5 motor had some of the best IR's of all the 25.5's, for those that care.

But please also be advised that the USVTA and events such as the Southern Nationals ONLY allows 12.3 rotors to be allowed in 25.5 motors for VTA and F1. The 12.5 rotors or others are NOT permitted. Even if its listed on the ROAR site.

check your rotors and other info here on the ROAR page if needed http://roarracing.org/approvals/print_brushlessmotors.php

For f1 and VTA (25.5) how will the rules be interpreted, 101 minimum period, or each manufacturers motors numbers as tested by roar within 99%?

if this has been covered please forgive me.

using the min 101 rule, is the easiest way to do it...however the rules and min for each motor company is the best way. Most of the guys I spoke with at our track would rather do the min for each brand of motor, as well as most on-line and social media.

either way if your motor is legal by the rules that ROAR has posted and backed by the USVTA, you should be fine. Safeway is to be within the motor min for each company, that way you are legal no matter what

If your home track doesn't have a meter, please check with me as soon as you arrive to the event.

I will check with EA to make sure either way as well
