As Chuck said we WILL be allowing the D3.5 17.5 motors for this event. Here is the notice we posted on the Venom Offroad JAM Facebook Event Page:

ATTENTION 17.5 STOCK RACERS:

As you may have heard, this past week ROAR has removed the Trinity D3.5 17.5 stock motors from the approval list, making them illegal to use in competition at ROAR events.

This decision by ROAR has stirred quite a controversy and has put us in a VERY difficult position for the Venom Offroad JAM.

Whether we allow the motors or not, there is no decision that will make everyone happy. Our goal at this event is to ensure everyone has fun.

With ROAR making this decision less than one week away from the Venom Offroad JAM, we don't feel that it is fair to ask D3.5 17.5 stock racers to go out and purchase a new motor in order to race on such short notice. The motor WAS legal for sometime, therefore we WILL allow the Trinity D3.5 17.5 motor in the stock classes for this event.

We WILL be, however, following ROAR rules and approval list for the remaining motors and ESC's.

Once again, this has put us in a VERY difficult decision making situation, and we have made our decision based on doing our best to make sure everyone enjoys their weekend and is able to attend and race with friends.

Hi Josh-

The schedule for Sunday is to get lower mains started IMMEDIATELY at 9am. Our GOAL (key word "GOAL" meaning hopeful finish time) is no later than 4-5pm. Sunday is devoted to all mains and the raffle giveaway. We are running 8 minute single a-mains (with bump-ups) which will take far less time than 6 minute triple a-mains at other events by saving us 22 extra a-mains to run.

For both the local and travelling racers, I'd love to see everyone get home at a decent time Sunday night to get rested up for work on Monday and have plenty of time to try an calm the wife/girlfriend down after spending three days at the track

I walked it and drove the tractor a bit. I have been working so I didn't get to lend a hand on this one. Ya know its back breaking work. But I really missed helping out. Spence did a great job on it. Patrick stepped in some and I think is going to help out tonight. Spence was still packing when I left so pipe will go in tomorrow and I will stop in and get some on the foot footage. Stock and faster should be able to spend some time in the air on this layout. Stock slash may have to roll a couple of jumps.

We have always got to hand it to Chuck. And now Mike for stepping up and bringing us this race. But Spence is flat out beat and the race hasn't even started...LOL I will be working so I can't make it to race but will stop in, can't wait to see some racing and get some race action on vid.

Yes, but there will be no racing or practice (dirt or carpet) on Thursday.
