Wasn't this only a "recent" thing (i.e. C2's beeing ROAR approved) e.g. for say th 2004 ROAR nats, there was no official ROAR approved 19T, so they had a rule exception allowing them to use the Reedy as the handout 19T motor?

And actually, what the heck am I thinking here ...even as recent as our paved regional 12 champs ...I was told by our ROAR regional rep there was no official 19T so I had to put a specfic rule exception for allowed 19T's (which in our case we had Reedy's, Orion Top based & C2's). I'm just don't want people pointing fingers at tracks saying that they were running illegal ROAR stuff at ROAR events and should be spanked

copied and pasted from the ROAR website, motor approvals. Notice the date of approval.

What was the date of the event you mention?

Super Stock 19T Trinity Epic Epic RC2122/2123 Cameleon 2 9/14/2005

Oh wonderful the cells I just bought last week are already out of date. I wouldn't be surprised (actually I expect it) if by the time the snowbirds come around IB and GP announce new cells with highter compacitiy and voltage due the lenghtened cells.

And of course they will be so new at that time the only people will have them is the team drivers.

/thanks

It's more than likely when you applied, the Trinity was not yet approved.....but by the time your event rolled around it was legal....

This is what happened with our Onroad regionals.....I applied for a deviation to allow the Reedy, C2, Element....

Snowbirds sets their own battery rules regardless of what ROAR rules state. The fact that ROAR has a deadline to submit cells for the next year is one of the things they do that I agree with.

Hi Dawn,

Long time...

While we're on the subject.....how about having ROAR change "when" batteries are approved for competition. Having them approved on Jan 1 splits the Indoor season in half. It seems that it would be better for all if the battery appoval was effective October 1. I believe this would be in all of the U.S. racer's interests. ...of course all submittal dates etc. would have to be changed also....

Please keep in mind that this is coming from a California boy....

Yea I agree I like the "concept" i.e. you know what cells are the "baddest" approved for the following calander year, however, the issue is that all other sanctioning bodies and non ROAR events don't have the same submittal deadlines and/or procedures, so racers end up buying the latest and baddest for an event, that can't be used for concievably up to 2 years at ROAR events ...not saying it's good/bad or indifferent, just stating my observations. As you know, I'll just buy 8 new whatever cells I need for any big race I'm racing

My apologies to the ROAR membership for having made such an uninformed vote on my part!

Wonder how many other YES voters had similar thoughts?

Bill
Silly Me!! Thats what I thought TOO!
Oh well, next time I'll know.
Must have been all that excitment from receiving my first RevUp since joining ROAR in March.

Just out of curiosity can anyone with a recently purchased pack of unassembled IB3800 cells measure a couple of cells with a good digital caliper to see how long they are?
