Default The Region race At KRaceway - A question for the drivers

Here's the question: The 3800 batteries are not being made anymore.The one's out aren't as good as they have been.This race is scheduled in November and is the last race of the year. The new batteries will be approved more than likely (4200) so would ya'll like to make the exception and run either just 3800's or allow both 3800 and 4200's. This is a poll and I would like to have your opinons sent to me.
We will also have a brushless stock class if enough people enter. I'm presently working with Novak about the combo set-up and I'll let you know when I can confirm everything.

I would like to see 4200 allowed for this race. Most of the recent 3800 cells are down 30-40secs with less volts

Allowing both would probably help out the situation for many racers.

The question here, is not if 3800's will be legal., it is if 4200's should also be allowed because of the import/manufacturing situation. 3800's will be legal no matter what.

That being said, Bill's being pretty diplomatic about the situation, I would say 4200's should be allowed.

In my opinion 4200s should not be legal because it is a roar race and there not legal in roar also i know 3800s are discontinues but i dont think there is a problem w/ getting them mabe from the bigger companies like smc and those because they sell alot more but im shure you can and will still beable find the 3800s from smaller companies that dont sell alot like high velocity and hurricane and i would think brood and trinity have the 3800s too

It's not only an issue of getting 3800s; but the ones you do get are really bad right now. With KRaceway being such a big track I'm concerned the latest 3800 will struggle, especially in mod
