As long as you stay in the hotel you should be fine then.

Are you referring to tire warmers? If so you are allowed to use them. I did for rubber.

He was probably thinking "Hey, I'm gonna get lucky...dunno when this is going to happen again, need to take advantage of it now!" Sorry Aaron, but after busting my chops on Sunday I couldn't resist. Congrats man. Your life will never be the same, and I mean that in the best ways.

And if we do leave the motel, just don't make eye contact with anyone and we should be ok

man now I gotta go buy some tire warmers.... and lipo warmers.... and a professional grade tire scuffer... and a warmer for my warmers

where will the madness end

By tire scuffer do you mean a tire truer?

You do not need tire warms for rubber on carpet. I have almost never seen anyone use em.

on a slightly different note, i was able to make about 6 or 7 runs with my world gt car fixed up with a single cell and 13.5 last night, and all i have to say, is that it sucks. way too slow...... i know that the big push of factory drivers will go away if this is what that class goes to. i realize the need to goto lipo, but i am pleading with you...... if you go too slow, you will kill the class. factory guys will not want to run it, they are all complaining that it is too slow now. and the club guys will all be running a faster setup, and none will want to slow down to go to big races.

please, please, please, please......from a guy who just loves this class, and does not want to see it die........

my suggestions:
single cell lipo w/10.5
2 s lipo w/ 17.5

i know that i am next to nobody, but trust me on this one.
