it will work the same as every other race that does motor tech.
step 1) bring motor disassembled to tech, or disassemble it at tech.
step 2) we will be inspecting stator and rotors.
step 3) reassemble the motor at tech table
step 4) motor will receive tamper proof labeling and your good to go

step 5) enjoy the longest running RC event with the confidence that everyone is legal

NOTE TO ALL:

The construction on the sub floor begins today, the event staff is either there working or will be en-route today so it may take awhile for respond back to emails or posted questions or updates.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there

Are any Awesomatix guys coming that have 2x P05 (sway bar joints) and 1 PL6 (Left Damper) that I could buy off of you at the track? Already bought rebuild parts for this used car and noticed these issues tonight during rebuild so there's no way I'd be able to get the parts shipped in time.

As for question 4 and 5 Adam B that pertains to me.

My last time racing was this race last year. I'm making the return and will probably quit again Sunday the 30th lmao.
Don't flatter yourself dummy.

Awesomatix USA parts support for the Champs.

The damper might be a tough one though. What exactly is it doing?
