darkside/batboy setup is boxstock associated tc6 setup he used to win the amateur class at snowbirds so he might get half a run on tires on pavement.

and several ran stock and mod 12th scale at the carpet nats. I believe it was you can run stock and mod as long as no intermediate class is offered and since 13.5 TC is offered you could run stock and 13.5 or 13.5 and mod in tc and I still think that you could run stock and mod in 12th scale. which I might. although this is not a worlds qualifying year like last year was so I might not worry about running mod. I still think they should of offered 13.5 12th scale this year like they did in Jackson for last year's pave nats instead of 17.5 which I believe is going to be snore slow on a track that awesomely big. 13.5 was killer at Jackson even if it wasn't boosted. What are the locals running like a 125-150mm RO in 17.5

Yes but when they do blow he automatically gets TQ in every class. He was banned from the Worlds for this very reason.

It is a technicality but a D3.5 is not a D3 so as such it is not on the list. I pm'd Mr. Pond about that but I do not have an answer as of this writing. I would like to hear ROAR's answer.

The part number is the key.

If memory serves me right the Revtechs were not allowed to use the tuning rotors until they were added to the list. Interestingly the oem p/n rotor in the Duo 1 was not the same but it can run the tuning rotors. I believe that they (Epic/Trinity) have to submit each of them for approval in that stator. With that being said I don't believe until ROAR (with a statement) approves them as such, only the purple one is legal. They need to reply.

Default Videos from the past weekends races.

For those not on the other two threads, here are some videos from last weekends 2 rounds of qualifiers. Mini, USGT, 1/12, 1/12 Mod, 13.5 Blinky, 17.5 Blinky, VTA and Mod TC. Paul Lemieux was testing out his new XRay, Look for the Heat 1 Modified TC videos (2) to see him in action along with our locals.

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...ature=view_all

The channel also has some videos from the recent Nitro On-Road series and some other weekends of practice.
Enjoy and see you next weekend!
