If they are approved, they wont be ROAR legal to run until 2006. Alot of the non-sanctioned have been allowing them.

They were allowed to run them at Snowbirds and the Novak race and will probably be legal at most non-sanctioned races. There are very few sanctioned races in the US compared to non-sanctioned races. Most club races will probably allow them as well.

Get your facts right before you post, were not allowed at snowbirds. 3300 MAH max, strictly enforced in tech, Turn off the caps lock as well, it is distracting to everything else in the thread.

Sorry guys, I thought I read somewhere that they would be legal. My fault for not double checking.

It is all done on a case by case basis in unsanctioned racing events. Clubs and commercial tracks may or may not allow them based on their customer's desire to use them.

As far as ROAR goes, batteries must be submitted by September to be eligible for use the following year.

You may want to try a spell check or grammar check as well. It is just easier to read when you are writing real english.

Right now, there are too many confusions in the battery war like 3600, 3700, and 3800mah...

For IB cells, they are the best when compare price vs performance. I personally switch to the non match Intellect Cells because of the price and most of the races in my area allow 3600~3700 cells.

I also bought a pack of VTEC from LRP because of the number printed on it.
