No Alf... Only the 17.5 appears "different" than rules. I cannot imagine what this will do for the rest of the season now that everyone already had to buy a d3.5 17.5 just to keep up...

Strange that is was approve after all then.

Well I'm are getting a headache of checking this Roar list, ESC, Motor, Battery missing coming and going from this list as it was...

If this is going to continue I will race all mod next time.

Any one have a nice Pro Mod Oval Car... for me and TC Mod Car...

Since the Snowbird race is not a ROAR event, they should overlook this current ruling for this year. The D3.5 has been out long enough for people to either buy them, or figure out a way to keep up with them. With this event 11 days away, asking people to trash motors they have stocked up on, buy new motors, get to a track, and tune would just hurt the event and hobby. This is just my opinion. I am not even going to this race, but hopefully common sense prevails.

I totally disagree. The motor should not be legal. This is what you get for playing the trinity motor of the month game. Reminds me a lot of the whole tekin 208 debacle. However, since trinity is the title sponsor for this race, I already think I know what the answer will be.

I really do not expect people with Thunderpower, LRP, Reedy, Orion, Novak, etc as motor sponsors to agree with me. If this was a ROAR race, I would say that they should be illegal hands down. Since Snowbirds IS NOT a ROAR race and ROAR is used as a guide, and the race is in 11 days, they should allow it. There are other large events starting today and tomorrow. This ruling is too short of a notice. I think they should have kept it as is and after the season ends, make the ruling. Not less then 2 weeks before one of the largest races in the world is going to happen.

I don't think it should be allowed. I know everyone has money in them but from day one there was something different about those motors. Leaps and bounds from others on the market. Now we know why. I will say that most have caught up to the D3.5 so if it is allowed I personally will not have a problem. I don't believe in not letting someone race because of an issue like this.

Anyone that is interested in debating the merits of ROAR's ruling should go here.

My ONLY request is that a FINAL decision from a Snowbird organizer be delivered ASAP. I'm sure I speak for the rest of the racers (using D3.5 motors) signed up for Stock Touring for this event. I have a stock pile of D3.5 17.5 motors with different rotors that I've been testing/tuning in the past several months. If this ruling sticks and is enforced, we'll have less than 11 days to purchase/test/tune on a different motor/rotor.
