Spec paint color? Handout diff balls? One set of tires for the entire week?

Most of the time there's 4 or 5 of us with white rattle can bodies anyway, and we have Sydor for the handout... nevermind.

Is there a max amp charge rule for the Indoor Champs?

Officially ROAR Rules, and must use a LIPO bag. The Hotel would not allow us to have bon-fires in the pits we will be teching voltage and batt temp

So, if one was to charge at 20 amps and uses a lipo bag, gets through tech with correct voltage and battary temp your good to go?

Ok, so what does that mean? Can the consequences of being over voltage or over temp be elaborated on and explained?

I ask the question from being at the Halloween Classic, and there was this one guy who was over voltage every heat! He would then bleed off the battery to make the correct voltage. Is that going to be allowed? Or if someone shows up to tech with voltage of 8.41 are they disqualified, and they cannot run their heat.

I donít see how it stops folks from over charging, if you can bleed off the battery to fool the meter. I am all for being accommodating, and do not want to disqualify people. However it was almost silly that this one dude was trying to drop the voltage every round.

Thank you,

Snowy.

The only reason I've ask this question is that we are seeing a lot of ichargers showing up that my home track that will charge at 20+ amps.
I know that the IIC has a rule that limited charging to 14 amps max and was just wondering if the indoor champ had any charging limits.

I do not see the sense in Teching something that realistically can not be tech evenly across the board..... While I may catch racer A charging at 20 amps because I walk by and he is on the outside area of the pit, I may miss racer B charging at 40 amps because he is stuck way in the back and one would have to get groped by a lot of guys to even reach his pits..... as to tech voltage, we will allow voltage bleed off, but plus or minus 5* degree ambient or you don't run that round. The reasoning is simple some chargers are inaccurate on cutoff, but the excess heat or noticeable cooling, is a direct attempt at circumventing the rules.

On that note show up to tech with a battery at 8.44 and your going to bleed it off, show up at 8.55 then we may have a talk with you while you race is running.

I have no problem with letting someone burn-off a little voltage. Not everyone has a super-duper high-end charger, and some of the lower-end chargers are less than accurate. If the individual can take it down to the limit without holding up the race program, it's really not an issue.

At the iic
Tech kicked you out to the back of the line for over volt
They only said if it was over, not by how much
This way the tech line moved quickly, and seemed to discourage most issues of over voltage

It's so much easier to walk up to tech well before your race, lipo in hand, and find out the exact voltage your charger is set to by the official tech meter

I usually bring my own volt meter, test the battery before I get to tech (before racing starts), have tech test it, and adjust charger to compensate. that way you are not holding people up. that way I know how far off my volt meter is off the houses.
