James,
I heard that the GPR 220mm will be allowed at the ROAR Nats using the 235mm rules, that means all you need to do is conform to the weight limit then correct?

That is what I have understood, but still waiting for the final word from ROAR to be announced. Hope for it today!

just pulled this off the ROAR web site:

09/30/08 - On Road Fuel Sedan Nats Update

After further review of the ROAR rules for 1/10th open it has been determined that the maximum dimensions of the 220mm conversion kits do not exceed the maximum dimensions of the 235mm chassis, wheels and tires rules for 1/10th Open. Therefore these conversions will be allowed in competition under the 235mm chassis rules. This will require the 220mm chassis to run at the 235mm chassis weight of 2000gr. Further note that the 1/10th open class will allow the use of non approved Can-Am/GTP/Group C/WSC style bodies as all previously approved bodies have had their approval expire and no bodies have been resubmitted for consideration

If the 220 conversion is done the right way and the car is setup right, the 220mm should perform just as good if not better then the older design 235mm... Now if someone just slaps on the shell and tires and thinks it's all good... They'll be in for a big surprise... Remember, the 235 is a true onroad design and drives like one... The 220 is just that... a conversion. .02 FedEx Guy by way of SoCal...

Just keep in mind that the Knack converted GPR 220 can keep up with the 1/8 scale cars.

This will require the 220mm chassis to run at the 235mm chassis weight of 2000gr...

Will that weight hit put the 220mm Chassis at disadvantage? The 235mm are running big block .15's and 220mm are running .12's but are required to run at the same weight... Maybe I'm missing something here...
