NB: Serpent Project 4X was checked and due to the O.D. of the center pulley the internal is not exactly 2.000. Testing revealed it is closer to 2.005. For Serpent Cars ONLY, the drivers who wish to be as close as possible to the Minimum FDR can use the following spur/pinion combinations: SS TC => 99/32; Stock TC => 97/36; USGT => 101/46.

I did have to convert one of my cars into a usgt car because of all the new spec rules, eventhough I never ran it due to other issues....I must admit that all of the spec talks were not encouraging and killed most of my desire to show up at the track until I saw concrete liverc video evidence that the turnout was decent(five+ heats).....

My guess is like ROAR did when they implemented the rule. A race official walking the pits randomly. Quite easy with the big lit up displays showing all the info.
Also, can do like Cleveland has done before, all charging is done on a charging table using a supplied charger. Back then Novak would bring about 10-20 Rhino chargers for the table.

Those chargers at the Indoor champs were to bump your packs. Remember the days when the NiCd and NiMh needed repeaked for max grunt.

Yep, those chargers at the indoor champs were Class chargers, kindly provided by CRC and Frank Calandra. They eliminated the need for guys to bring their own bump boxes to the tech and on-deck areas. Just another of the many ways that CRC actively supports the carpet racing scene.

True, it was a while ago, lol. But that still could be a way to control the charging. Kinda like a saucing table to control what tire sauce was being used.

Tests will continue for a period of time while we await motors to arrive. Many classes.. many motor combo options. Trying to see what plays out best..

Actually I think it goes back to oval racing before it showed up at the indoor champs. I remember guys having bump boxes in the early (very early) 90's at King.

We were bumping packs in te mid 80's before there was even a peak detector charger to keep you from going Chernobel with your packs. Using an old Astroflite timer type charger we would put the pack in a plastic bag and set it on ice to hold the temp down in an attempt to gain any kind of additional oomph from the batteries so don't think for a milisecond that there won't be all kinds of shenanigans to try to gain single car length with the Can/Am spec hand out motors. At your big races keep an eye out for the diver or team that has their pit somewhat removed from the others.

It is impossible to make anything fool proff because fools are so ingenius.
