Dave - I only caught the tail end of that, When Cyrul's car took the swift blow to knock it loose! It was still hilarious..

They left the "glued" tires on the table... It had some trackside paint on them.

No, Troy's laughing was earlier. He did that to freak a guy out. I can't remember who he scared cause I couldn't see but the guy jumped right out of his pants I guess.

Default ROAR Legal Cells

I have a question after seeing Barry Baker's car in the pic.

ROAR has recently approved both the Sanyo and GP 3300's cells.
Within the GP cell approval, ROAR states that both the green/yellow and 'ranibow' coloured cells are approved.

After looking at the pic of Baker's car, I see that Reedy have their own unique casings on their GP3300's.
http://teamassociated.com/shusting/C...665_gp3300.jpg

Does this still make the Reedy cells ROAR legal?

If someone is to remove the OEM casings and put on their own, how do we know the manufacturer type, capacity or origin of the cell?

I am not saying this is done, but who is to stop someone from putting their own, unique casing on a 4000mAH cell and calling it a ROAR legal cell?

Just curios, that's all...

Quote:
Rule 5-13: Batteries must be readily identifiable as to their origin.

The original manufacturer label must be in place (e.g. Sanyo,
Panasonic, GP, etc.). This label must include the original
manufacturers' logo, voltage rating, and milliamp rating. In the case of a secondary, or distributor label being available and applied by the original manufacturer at the factory, a Statement of Origin/ Manufacture must be provided to ROAR from the original manufacturer via the reseller for any individualized cell. This label must state the country of manufacture and have the voltage and milliamp rating printed on it. All individualized cells must be presented to ROAR for approval. Any indication that the original manufacturer applied label has been changed or tampered with will make the battery illegal. If the cells have an identifying mark on the negative end, the mark must be visible after the battery has been soldered together. If protested, it is up to the driver to prove the legality of their batteries. It is recommended that when cells are assembled into a pack, that the cells be arranged so all pertinent information on the cells is clearly visible. If gluing cells together, use glue that can be cut without damaging the cell's
identifying label or shrink wrap, such as Shoe-Goo.
The shrink on the cells is accually a Yokomo shrink wrapping, Which after viewing the ROAR website, is legal.

Recently Approved Battery
The following batteries have been approved for use in ROAR competition effective 01/6/2003:

GP330SCHR- Rainbow colored label.

Powers R 3300- Royal Blue shrink w/ white, red, yellow lettering.

Yokomo Z3300HVR- Light Metallic Blue shrink saying Zap-2 w/ yellow "Z" background.

GP330SCHC- 2/3 Green and 1/3 Orange (neg. end) label

The CA'ing of Josh's car was carried out with military precision. Contrary to the previous post Josh was standing right next to his car when it was being glued.

An unnamed person asked Barry to distract Josh while the unnamed person glued Josh's left tires, his back was to the unnamed person. Then another unnamed person walked between Barry and Josh, sat net to him reached over and glued his right tires. The unnamed person wishes he had it on video, it too slick.

Other Victims:

An Unnamed person glued Jared Scotts, and Travis Schrevens Xray's to their tables, Actually he got Travis twice...lol!

An Unnamed person glued Jughead's right shoe to the ground while he was watching the awards ceremony.

An Unnamed person glued Troy Schroder's (Mr. Fantom Motors) shoe to the ground while he was chatting with one of his drivers. This one was commando style, crawling under a table.

Due to tightening airport regulations the unnamed person could not fly back with all that CA (the unnamed person 's bags were searched and they threw away all of our traction compound, CA and Shock oil!).

Default Tamiya EVO 3 question

So Troy I keep hearing how freakin' fast Jun's new EVO 3 looked during the event. Any truth to that rumor or is this just excited Tamiya fans?

Adrian - talk about sneaky. I was sitting less than 3 feet away and you guys were so covert, I missed it. I assumed Josh had left and it was the short time that he was away but It's even more hilarious that it was done right under his nose. Sorry about the mis-information on the timing of the great prank..lol

Madjack, no lie, Dave's EvoIII was QUICK, that thing corners VERY nicely, & appears to have its drive system just as efficient as a TC3's. I for one was impressed...

I wasn't a big Tamiya fan but now I am. David Jun's car looked fast and was fast. Go to the Trackside website and check out the lap times in the triple A mains. The car is also very quiet. I asked David if it was his driving or the car that allowed him to go that fast and he replied with "Its the car".
