I thought it was just the 17.5 that was getting pulled. I didn't think there was ever an issue with the 13.5.

It was very obvious the 13.5 was illegal also. The 10.5 was found to be illegal over seas, I have no clue why it is still on the list. The 10.5 my be considered a modified motor? The 21.5 must have passed the new tech process by ROAR, it's in the approval forum.

There's no statement for them to release. They said months ago it would be approved until April 1 at which time the approval would be rescinded.

I think 10.5 is considered mod.

Yeah I am a little annoyed that the 13.5 was removed as the original statement by roar said they would be removing the 17.5 only. All my 13.5's are paperweights now.

Agreed. I thought the ruling specified that the 17.5 would be removed - I didn't think the 13.5 was affected.

I can see the 13.5 and 17.5 on the list below. Under "Team Epic" as the importer/manufacturer.

D3.5 is not there anymore. Are you sure you aren't looking at d3, as in duo3? not the same as the d3.5, which has been removed.

The removal of the 17.5 was expected, but the 13.5 is a surprise.
