My entry is on the way for 13.5. I actually got some time off to come to this race.

Are the Jaco Greens going to be on sale and how many sets can we use?

Syndrome- I thought you weren't gonna be able to make it???

As far as what's legal, it seems no one has really submitted anything yet. I've been contacted by some racers asking the same questions.

So the rules have been posted for all to see, but looks like they are waiting until the first day of the race.... ? ? ? This is no problem. From what I'm understanding the Orion motors are okay, and the trinity motors should be fine as well. The only stumbling block at this stage is what is "available". The whole whats available issue is always a problem at big races, so we've gone with the tried and trued, If it meets the posted rules and in the shop, it's legal.

Myself and Scotty are making a promise to everyone that this won't happen next year, we will for sure have all the rules posted well in advance so all the manufactures have enough time to prepare. I must openly admit, we dropped the ball on getting all the post race rules in order before we decided on the event. Lesson Learned.

For Foam 10.5 and 13.5 the rotors must be available AND no larger then 13mm Diameter.



TURN ON THE HEAT! Maybe have someone run a heat vent right to our table this year..... With a sun lamp and a warm jug of hot chocolate......

Cold weather seperates the Crazy's from the rest of us.....

My spy reports Scotty has clocked another 10 packs today.

I can't, but I'm really curious to see how the different 13.5's and 10.5's do in mixed competition. :-)
