interesting, i might have been thinking about the one in chicago instead. This fair always brings out a bunch of awesome stuff, which you would never think of coming out. I love the new hotbodies 2WD buggy, looks good.

The EFRA list can not be updated once it's out, that's what is going to be legal for the whole year. I don't care what Adrien Bertin says, the list's out and they're not on it. End of the story.

I'm not anti-orion, and I would have liked these cells to be on the list. I'm anti people who can't read the rules and won't admit that they're wrong on public forums, that's what I'm against.

Now here are the rules, they're written clearly enough in the EFRA handbook: cells must be submitted before the 31st of december for aproval. Paul Worseley had all the cells that were submitted for over a month and released the list once he had them all checked. If these cells aren't on the list that was published, they will not be legal for 2008.

Now if you're not willing to race with them in any championship that uses either the BRCA or EFRA list, then these will probably be great cells for mod.

PS: just noticed you're form staten island, I don't know what the rules are for ROAR so they might get legalized for ROAR events.

orion sho 4200 that are efra legal are the ones with the blue/white shrink. Since both 4600 and 5300 have the blue/blue shrink my guess is that they wont be legal next year too. Again my guess, 5300 sounds impossible to be fitted on a cell of 43mm WITHOUT comprising realibility something we suffered a lost the past year, and I don't think Orion would do such think to it's customers

oh, wait. So ROAR isnt the main body for america? isnt BRCA british, and EFRA for europe? Im not sure how it is here, but i doubt they go under european rules, most races are ROAR, arent they? im not positive, but i read over the rule book thing, and i found almost no useful information, all it talked about was the dimensions of a car, and race setup.
