Last year it was only 2 batteries, but 3 motors has been the norm. I'm kinda hoping the reduced voltage of the handout packs will reduce heat and wear on the motors myself.

'06 GT-2 you had to turn in your motors AND batteries each night (Friday and Saturday). Expect the same this year. It was also 2 batteries and 2 motors in '06 so this year is nothing new.

We got three motors last year. At first they were only going to allow us two but then they changed it to three when we got down there.

They let you take your batteries home to cycle them as much as you want, but they will do a motor impound on Friday and Saturday night to prevent people from using any voodoo magic. Everyone buys 2 batteries and are allowed to buy 2 motors
