You go through full tech on practice days. We don't want you to run into any surprises during the week going through it.

If you want you can bring your battery that you just charged to tech and check the voltage too.

I am very interested in hearing about how the hand-out Novak Club 17.5T Combos work out in the GT class. I have already burned up 2 of them in my VTA. At least 6 of my colleagues have burned their Club ESC's up too. They are not even putting a low FDR on it. They have a 4.1 ratio which is very conservative at our track.

Manufacturer support at a big race is phenomenal, I wouldn't worry about it too much, Novak will be there with everything u can ever think of!

Ha! Same thing happened to me last week. I installed a Novak Club 17.5T Combo in my TC and the Club ESC burned up after 2 qualifiers. My FDR was at 3.6. I sent the combo back to Novak for repairs. I certainly hope that there will be plenty of replacements for the handout ESC's at IIC.

Thanks Kraig!

BTW it's been ages since I raced with you in Monroe/Madison. It'll be good to see you again in Vegas!
