Am I remembering correctly that traction compounds are not allowed for the Worlds? Or is it just controlled access to the compound in the tech inspection area? Is it just excluded from sedan and there will be a spec sauce (sxt) for 12th?

I assume there are a few typos on the form - it says that Touring Cars will be 6 minute heats (I guess this should be 5 to be in line with IFMAR rules), and it says about "Semi Finals" (again, I assume you re-cycled a flyer from a nitro race or something and missed that bit!).

It would be worth clarifying that, otherwise as it reads it's a bit confusing!

Andrew at the last Worlds it was controlled & allowed at a controlled area
saucing tires for TC had a 3 minute window for qualifying for all drivers

With 1/12 needing at least 30 min it will also have a designated area for drivers to sauce under supervision & tire sauce will be supplied

For both classes we are looking to have SXT available to purchase $6 a bottle for all drivers so they can use SXT to prep there tires on there own but will then be controlled & supplied at the designated area
Touring car will use 3.0
1/12th will use WC Blend

So 1/12 will also be a control additive as well as tyres?
TC will be control tyre and additive (with a 3min window for applying it) with no tyre warmers allowed.

Yes 1/12th it will be controlled and was sent up to all 4 blocs to vote on
With a bigger window were suggesting tire treatment SXT WC Blend

Tire treatment will be SXT 3.0

I was thinking ahead to the main worlds, not the warmup. Will that also have a control additive for 1/12?
