Just asking has anyone sent a PM to a moderator about making this a sticky? Thats usually how it works most times you need to request it via PM.

Well he you go....

any 21.5 that has a 17.5 on the ROAR approved list will be allowed at this time for this event. Given its the same counterpart motor. Example, Vulcan 17.5 and Outlaw Vulcan 21.5 isn't going to fly. Lets keep a honest hat on and be real and not take short cuts..

We are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Waiting and trying to keep it fair. So after talking with several ppl and companies , this seems to be the best option.

with this exception...The Orca 21.5 will also be allowed. Ive been reassured that this motor has already gone into approval with ROAR and passed, and it just hasn't been posted.

I hope this clears up any misunderstanding and I hope all of you continue to support the class.

any questions please pm me....thanks Myron

D3.5's are still not permitted

I would like to thank Eric and Dale at Protoform for the extremely generous prizes they sent to us. They have made strides to produce bodies for VTA and GT classes to ensure we keep something nice and looking good around the track.

Go to the links posted and see what they have coming soon and all the great products that they put out.

Thanks again

BTW...they not done YET!!! that's your 2nd hint

Same question here. We have a D3.5 21.5 in one of our USGT cars.

The 21.5 is OK. Its the only D3.5 motor that was tested on the new style equipment at ROAR and passed. It was never in any doubt by ROAR since the only way it was ever tested was on the new more accurate machine and it passed fine. Trinity never submitted the 21.5 until Feb of this year once the new testing method started. It was in fact the first motor to be tested on the new equipment.

As far as usgt bodies go. The Audi R8 is good to go right? I haven't heard anyone ask about them. I see it on the IIC list so I would think its ok. Here is mine for the race.

No problem. I've got a 21.5 Novak too. It actually seems stronger than the D3.5-21.5. But eliminating them entirely prevents any controversy. So it's understandable.

he's the boss then. Even though its not what was discussed. Going to have to start recording these discussions so stuff doesnt get changed on the fly anymore.

Also just means more ORCA motors to sell!
