Motion passed unanimously as follows:
Stock: 17.5 brushless technologies are acceptable to compete with 27T brushed motors. It is believed the 27T motor will have an advantage and most racers will continue the brushed technology therefore giving the membership another year of preparation in the gathering of BL equipment. It is also believed, the intent to slow down stock motor racing will be accomplished with the inclusion of 17.5 brushless motors combined with 27T brushed motors.
Super Stock (formerly 19T): A minimum of 10.5 brushless technologies is
acceptable to compete with 19T brushed motors. It is the Excom’s
recommendation that club level tracks continue their programs already in place with the inclusion of brushless technology. For Nationals in 2008, 19T brushed motors will compete with brushless technology motors to a minimum of 10.5 winds. (ie: 13.5 is recommended with 19t in Super Stock competition and 10.5 is allowed). 2009 will show rules of 13.5 BL only in the Super Stock class.

ROAR has included 17.5BL to run in Stock with 27T Brushed, but no one will run BL because it is even stated in the rule to be at a disadvantage, so in my opinion, rule hasn't even really changed Stock class.

Super Stock will allow 19T, 10.5 and 13.5 this year, but only 13.5 next year, so does this mean it is BL only next year?

Looks to me as if 2009, Stock is Brushed Stock and Super Stock is Brushless Stock. There really isn't an intermediate class (19T) anymore???

It seems like the assumption was that eventually, 17.5 would be the stock class, and 13.5 would be the 19T class. If the 27T stock is faster than 17.5 brushless, obviously not many people will bother running it at big events. You'll probably see attendance in the 13.5 class go quite a bit higher since it will be brushless only, and will be more of a true "spec" class than anything else.

What it sounds like, is that 19T is going to be replaced by brushless stock (13.5), and stock will remain 27T until it dies out due to lack of interest. Hopefully events will let go of brushed, and just make the classes 17.5, 13.5 and mod so we can move on.
