For those classes the rules should be similar to last years. That's what I have been told.

Default Reedy FT motors

After the issues last year in getting the legal motor, I hope that they don't change it!

I hope they Keep the Reedy Fixed timing motors as they were for last year. I think the fixed timing motor direction is the way to go.

The only change I think there should be is make F1 a fixed timing 25.5 or open it up to all Roar Legal 25.5's. Both the Reedy motors that were used for the F1 class last year are discontinued motors.

Only a little sorry for not reading 22k posts to see, did a quick search and couldn't find what I was looking for. Here goes...

Going back and forth between ta07r and ms versions. Not wanting to be forced to run gt1. The way the rules read MS may technically be allowed to run in gt2. Anyone done this? any race director's thoughts on the matter? Thanks

Looking at the 2019 rules, I would interpret them as the MS not being GT2 legal as it's a carbon deck car.

On page 8 of the 2019 rules:
1. Legal chassis platforms: Any TUB-type chassis XV-01, TT-01, TT-02, TA-01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 and TB-03, TB-04, and TB-05 variants.

Although there is that word "variants" at the end, I would still think that the requirement of TUB chassis has to be fulfilled as well.

I hear ya though, that's why I went with the TA07pro (no R at the time) over the other TRF options. It allows me to run GT1 or GT2 with the same car.

The TA07 MS would not be legal for GT2, In the MS version it is no longer considered a Tub Chassis.

Figured the possibility of this being thought of similarly as the tt02 type s. Looks like 7R it is...

Lots of replies giving you the answer back, but I wanted to add I did ask this earlier and got the following replies from FMW in messages #21858 and #21859 (I would post links but can't yet), if you'd like official confirmation.

Does anyone make a fixed timing 25.5? Does anyone know if the lack of Pit tire production will be a problem for us getting new tires?
