Thanks Todd. That makes sense. I always thought about the outside wheel ands not so much about the inside wheel. PW actually corrected me and said you were right later when he saw my post.

Sounds like some "bump" out is what I could have used today (either that or the 6 deg c-hubs) Thanks Todd!

Are you gonna be at the Region 12 Carpet Champs at HW? I'll be in Modified C-D Main with a few of my buddies

..It's October 22 & 23 ...with practice days 20 & 21 ...you'll be able to signup online (yep same system as the SWR regionals ...provided by gearchart.com ) By end of next month ...Nick and I are coordinating rules and such on the two events so our battery/motor rules correspond to each other to help alleviate racers having to buy 2 sets of "stuff" for the 2 seperate regionals.

3700's need to be legalized in my opinion for both Regionals...people are buying new batteries these days and they are 3700's.

I'd love that ..."people" is me included!!!! ...couldn't get an "excption" for the regionals, and it doesn't "help" that the nationals don't have one either, I was hoping they did as that could be used as a strong reason to get one for our regoinals as well

Won't it be funny when ROAR issues a temporary rule change for the on-road nats in October?

All the ROAR officials are saying NO,NO,NO! But...If I were betting man I would put money on being able to run 3700's at the NATS.

I bet just about every racer that plans on attending already has 3700's. I do and so does every serious racer that I know. We are all mad about having to buy new 3300's just to run that one race. Every major on road race on the calandar for the rest of this year is allowing 3700's except the On Road Nats.

I am sure ROAR will do the right thing and let the track have a exception to the rule.

How do the IB 3800's fit into this scenario? Are they more of a stock or 19 turn battery?

At times ROAR has done the right thing, for example a few years back we were not forced to run our carpet bodies at 117mm with foam tires. The allowed us to run the normal height of 111mm.

Depends what your definition of "funny" is ....if they're gonna do an exception would be nice to know now so that we can announce that for our regionals as well!!
