Thanks, I am getting old. I didn't read that. I guess it was wishful thinking on my part. I probably won't wait until February. I appreciate the help. I guess I'm eventually going need a large print version. I need all the excuses I can get.

yes... the mini was a lot of fun driving with the Ride tires, they worked really well and priced right.
Its just the S-Grips are so hard to race on black carpet, not to mention they are expensive.
Now that the racer had to mount there own, the incentive for the racer to accidentally put a different insert is there.

2019 Tires for Mini question.

Is there an option to use the Spec S tires (1016) at any of the races?

They are still within rules : S Grips, Spec inserts and Suzuki Swift spoke wheel. That I know of, the only difference is the color of the wheel.

Thoughts?

Unless something changes,
its pretty cut and dry

Spec tire rules: You must use the Tamiya S-Grip Radial Tire (#53254), Suzuki
Swift white spoke wheel (#51237), and Super Hard Inner Foam (#54590) or Hard Inner Foam (#53255) for this class. Note: You must assemble this specification tire yourself. This is the ONLY tire/wheel/inserts combination allowed for the class. Caution: Assembled tires may not exceed 60MM in diameter!

Correct. It's a clear Hop-Up Option.

Last year's rule was the same as written in the pdf, however Fred amended the rule on this thread to allow the 1016 premounts, and they were allowed in the regionals that I attended. Perhaps Fred will amend the rule again this year? There are still quite a few 1016s out there.

The solder tabs on the Reedy 297 motor look a bit large to fit the opening provided for them in the M07 chassis. Does the motor fit without cutting? Can somebody who has done it provide a photo?

I'm guessing an M08 and a 210mm M07. They teased the 210mm M07 quite awhile ago.

The 1016 Pre-mount may be used if you have them. There's no measurable performance difference between the tire that you have been allowed to build on your own from the 2018 rules and the 1016 pre-mount. In fact, you're better off building your own because you are able to glue the foam insert together. The 1016 pre-mounts insert was not glued together unfortunately. To some that may matter, to others it may not. Anyway, if you have them feel free to use them up.

Merry Christmas Eve to all!! =)

The Motors that were supplied at the Nats had the Solder tabs removed for us
no modifications to the chassis were required

motor that was supplied has the same part number
