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.

not sure if there is a roster, but i know a few pages back scotty posted the entry breakdown per class, but that was only up to date as of the 13th, when he posted it. I know previously there has been a curent entry list but i dont think there is one this time.

Actually the website says a max of three classes...that is why I asked.

I think Scotty may be trying to keep the entries under a certain number so that we are done at a very good hour each night and not there till 10 each night. But I am sure if we dont hit that number they will allow more entries in each class till its full at the event.

I talked to him Thursday and he said he thought they were at a little over 315ish. And I just signed up today. Totally forgot to do it with the move and all the stuff going on.

HI GUYS,

Well busy times for sure as we get close to the big show.

I am sure I missed some questions but I hope everyone emailed me with any that they had. I had to turn off my PM as everyone was sending those and email works best for me.

Entries are over 300. so we are at a controllable number, I am sure we will have 20 or so entries additional at the race during check in, but it will still make for a good manageable amount. Not 450 like we had in the crazy years.

I will work on getting an entry list up, I am sure I will need my hard working buddy Kraig or my Bro Boomer to bail me out on that as spread sheets are no bueno for me.

Things are right on schedule for a great event. CRC Fast Track carpet is arriving on Thursday. Most of the goodie bag items have arrived and the fastest onroad racers in the world roll in this weekend.

Me and all the IIC team are excited to meet everyone for antoher great IIC. Many new faces this year so that will be some added excitement as new racers get to experience what we hope everyone feels is the best event in the world.

If you guys need anything, please let us know .

PIT SPACES!!!!!!!! IF YOU WANT TO PIT WITH A CERTAIN GROUP, CONTACT THE GROUP LEADER AND HAVE THEM EMAIL ME THE LIST OF NAMES IN THE GROUP SO I CAN RESERVE THE PIT SPACES.... DONT JUST EMAIL ME AND SAY I NEED 8 SPOTS, I NEED THE COMPLETE LIST OF NAMES WHEN I RESERVE FOR GOUPS.

As always email me with any questions and I will be happy to help.
Thanks
Scotty

I missed some questions.

FDR. 4.0 is the lowest number you can run. If you want to run hight ie: 4.5 or 4.8 that is ok. But lower like 3.9 is not allowed.

Battery Voltage, 4.2 1s and 8.4 2s. As Kraig said you can burn it off if you are over, but you will loose your place in line and we will not hold up the race because you were over voltage.


Thanks
Scotty

Just a little housekeeping activity.

It would be very helpful to us if you brought your transponder numbers with you and what class they belong to when you check-in on Monday.

Here is the entry list that I have taken from the site when you signed up. If your name is not listed let Scotty know asap by sending him an e-mail. When you check-in please let us know of any changes at that time.

Let the trash talk and bench racing officially begin!

Will the voltmeter being used to test voltages be available during the practice days? I'd like to know where my batteries read as meters can vary a bit if they aren't truly calibrated. The last race I went to had everyone burning off some charge which made me question the reliability of the readings.

Im not an IIC Official but in years past the tech equipment has been there every day for you to make sure your within limits and everything. They dont wait to last minute like some other organizations.
