I would say this falls under the "plan accordingly". Your getting ready with plenty of time to spare. You are planning acordingly.

What I was trying to say if you come up in heat 5 and your race is in heat 6 or 7 I wouldn't expect to make that heat. I would say we will do the best possible to get you out, but the current race tech takes priority.

Just asking. Would it be possible to send a spare motor or two through tech and have it recorded and sealed but not assigned to a racer unless needed? Basically could the motor be set aside as a spare and not used unless needed and then checked out to a driver on an as needed basis. I am not suggesting sharing motors but if that motor had not been used in competition yet could it be transfered to another driver. Trying to figure out how not to have 3 $80 BL motors on hand "just in case" when I should only need 1. That is what this technology was supposed to bring to the drivers. Thanks for your feedback!

The simple and quick answer to this question is NO. If a motor is teched, it's ID to a driver and vehicle/class at that time. Motors can be registered to more than one vehicle/class. If you don't want to have 3 motors it's simple don't, just use one. There were a lot guys running BL at the carpet nats with just one motor.

Gonna be good to see who techs BL. motors in then finds out Brushed is faster..LOL (in stk. TC that is)

I take it with motor tech, if I want to tech two brushed motors and one brushless that is ok? Or any combo of the two?

I don;t expect to see many BL 17.5's in stock TC. Brushed motors had the edge on carpet, I don't expect to see any difference on pavment at the nationals.

Yes, you can tech BL and brushed motors in any combination that equals a total of 3 teched motors per chassis/class

This is a bit off the current subject, however I will ask anyway.

Are tinted windows allowed on TC or not?

To answer your question No and Yes. Here's the rule

6.1.8 All molded-in windows must be clearly identified. Side and rear windows may be cut out
unless otherwise stated in class rules or specifications. Open windshields are not allowed,
except for holes defined in the relevant class rules or specifications. A sunshade band at
the top of the windshield is permitted.

BTW ..... altough you are allowed to race we all know what you call driving an RC car around that sheet of pavement you call a track ain't racing!!!! You'll just be another moving chicane for someone....lol
