I might have to try to get some serious practice in before this race but I know my car will be ready. I'm gonna try to make this race.

Going to try and make this one. run onroad for the first time in a long while. Plan is to run VTA and USGT. One question regarding USGT motors. it states in the USVTA rules that you must use any "roar approved 21.5" I have a dualsky 21.5 that is not on the list, however their 17.5/10.5/13.5 versions of the same motor are roar legal. Will I be ok to run my dualsky 21.5? I dont want to bend the rules, I just dont want to buy another motor lol.

Default D3.5

Tim,

Couldn't we use this race for a ROAR warmups race too, if its possible
could you reevaluate the use of the D3.5 17.5's.....

I was following what some recent "big" races had done but, since they are ROAR legal, the D3.5 is legal.

I've changed the rules in the first post for both.
