Trying to work something out with SpringHill Suites which is a new hotel not too far from the track. There are some pretty good food options near this hotel as well. Waiting to hear back from the sales rep and will post as soon as I know something.

Friendly reminder to everyone, Stock Wars registration is open!

It is super important to sign up in advance to make sure we have the proper motor count for this event.

Registration will close on 23 November so I can send in our motor order to the Can Am manufacturers. They need this two weeks to go through motors to ensure they are equal, and also to ship them to us.

Registration can be completed here: https://www.rcsignup.com/events/disp...nt.cfm?ID=6719

Friendly reminder to those attending. In addition to standard ROAR rules, we are following Can-Am RC Series rules. A couple important things to keep in mind:




1) Racers must have male 3.5mm bullet connectors on their speed control leads to the motor. There is absolutely no soldering allowed on the Can-Am motor tabs.




2) Fixed gearing applies to all Can-Am classes.

-TC is a minimum 5.40 FDR, nothing lower.

-USGT is a minimum 4.40 FDR, nothing lower.

-F1 must run fixed pinion (28t 64p) / spur (92t 64p)

-1/12 must run fixed pinion (56t 64p) /spur (72t 64p)




3) Can-Am motors will be issued randomly each morning and returned to tech each evening. Can-Am motors must not leave the track.




Thank you to everyone that is coming out this year, we are excited to race with you all soon!
