are you talking about the VECTOR X-11 Stock Spec motor?

Not knocking what you said (and I do want to get to the Gate someday)... I like to think of the IIC as a open invitation international race. With all the people coming from all over the world, it is awesome to see the talent of both the knowns and unknowns colliding.

I'd go to say Syndrome is probably on a similar page.
I've been to Vegas every year for the last 7 years straight. I, uh... usually throw a party there once a year. I cancelled this year, though, due to the move and all that. And in protest for killing the Frontier! Cheap drinks on the strip are becoming really hard to find. I love me some shady casinos, though, those fancy megaplaces they're building now are too uppity. I should probably just hang out on Freemont next time. So, uh... yeah... I don't care about the sights, but there's a 100% chance I'll eat too much at a buffet, and drink myself into a coma and miss half the races.

That sounds like a great time! Unfortunately, I'm now 600 miles west of Sydor, so I'll have to work on my own arrangements. :-(

don't get me wrong, vegas is the bees knees of nationals (along with boylan's birds), but i think you'll see some nice opportunities pop up this fall for some "big" races that you'll only have to trade a friday of work in for.

Who's truck do you think we are hopping into on the way to Vegas? I work for my family's business and getting time off isn't exactly an issue.. I'll probably hit the Halloween race as well I hope to make the rubber tire nats up at trackside aswell

As I recall, the LRP motors are a little lighter than Novak. It might contribute ever so slightly to achieving balance a bit easier.

I know that a torque stripe painted over the endbell screws was discussed/done before. If the paint is broke, your disqualified. Pretty simple, really...

As I recall, the LRP motors are a little lighter than Novak. It might contribute ever so slightly to achieving balance a bit easier.

At the ROAR Nationals, brushless motors were teched in advance and had their screws marked with nail polish so that they could not be opened without damaging this seal. I assume this is what would be done at a handout BL race. My assumption is that rotors can't be changed and that you can by a predetermined number of extra motors if you get a dud or damage the one you received. Scotty will determine the rules though. I am just speculating.

I'd like to see the racer choose from the list of legal motors (like the Reedy Race) rather than force someone to use one particular motor. To be quite honest, I am having a hard time figuring out the reasoning behind handout brushless motors.

what about novak for 17.5 and reedy for 13.5 on the handouts that would spread the wealth.

You mean a club race? There are loads of those already.

BTW, $2000? That's just enough to buy me a plane ticket... But I am serieously looking into coming over anyway

Exclamation Spec. tires?

Did Scotty run spec foam for 1/12? Or was it run what you brung? How about rubber tire last year. Was it Jaco?
What was the foam tire of choice? Front and rear? Anybody?
