You can always use velcro to secure your transponder into your cars. I use this method in my off-road cars and not once have I had it fall out and I do have some pretty spectacular crashes.

Yeah my problem is my memory , I tried running one transponder a few times and after the third time in a weekend I put the car on the track with no transponder and everyone waited while I installed it, I decided to run one per car.

We used to do that with our house transponders...had a lot of transponders that needed repair after that. It isn't how large the crash is that does it...it is how fast the cars go from top speed to 0 in almost no distance in an on-road crash. Might be a good idea to try Shure Lock instead of Velcro.

I would suggest looking at the new MRT then as it's compatible with RC4. Trade ins of old MRTs work out around $40 a unit. More info and order form via [email protected]

I was wondering if there was any finalization on the handout system for Spec Grand Touring and if there is a spec motor for Amateur 17.5?

Haven't seen anything final posted yet for this year. The handout motor for Amateur 17.5 has come from Speed Passion ever since the start of that class. Would be surprised if there was a change this year.

Last year, the system provided for Spec GT was a Novak Club ESC and 17.5 motor combo. The last thing that was posted on this forum about this class was that Scotty was still working on the system for Spec GT.

If the new MRT's work we won't stop you from using them.

It might be too early to ask but I'd like to know as well.

I was wondering about this as well. Was thinking about using CRC pro cut tires because I'd rather not have to mess with a tire truer, but I have no experience with them. Also, if anyone had any suggestions for a good starting point for gearing/roll out for 12th 17.5, that would be appreciated.

Due to the hi-grip nature of the track, tires will most likely need to be trued regardless of brand
I'm sure you could find someone at the race to help with that

I've run Bk/Ylw with good results there
This year I'll be running Ulti tires, Hard Fr, Med Rr

Roll out varies by brand, but I think 100+ is common
