Since I am new to big races like this I have a lot of noob questions but I will try to ask the important ones. I see the rules say the motors have to be roar legal. I have a Speed Passion 13.5 in my WGT car that is one of the ones prior to them becoming roar legal. Can I use this motor or will I have to get a new one?

Thanks for puttin up with me.

As long as it's the SPF135 Ultra Sportsman Stock, then you're good to go.
