Racing kit all packed up after my last F1 warm up race at the weekend. First time racing two classes at the IIC and it all fits in the case. Tyre truer and all (KevC will be delighted to hear ).

Got a late spares delivery on the way. And found my World GT spares to pack. Woo hoo

Four more work days and counting....

My guess is you cant be lower than 4.0. If you want to run 4.5 i'm sure you wont be penalized.

Upon further review, it is possible for me to get a 4.0 FDR.... Assuming I can get my hands on the the correct spur gear.

If you haven't tried it, I recommend this website for figuring out FDR or roll out.

For gearing nothing below 4.0 will be allowed. How that is handled will be explained by Scotty.

It is my understanding that max voltage for 2s is 8.4 and 1s is 4.2. If you are over we give you the opportunity to burn some off and check it again. The only thing is you must go to the back of the line so you don't hold other people up. If you tires are wet and plan to blip the throttle to burn some off we are not responsible if you get wet.

So 2 cell is going to be 8.4 and not 8.44 or even 8.5? Most races ive been to have honored 8.44 and even though this isnt a roar race, we use alot of their rules and roars voltage is at 8.5.

Just trying to get some clarification.

Actually ROAR went by 8.40 pass/fail at the asphalt nationals last month. At some point between carpet nats and asphalt nats it changed.

The website only has the option for 3 classes but if you want to run more I don't think we would stop you as long as there is enough room in that class for you. You can add classes when you confirm your entry.
