I say hopefully as you will always have some one try it hoping not to get caught then claiming ignorance of the rule as an excuse. If ignorance of the law / rules can't get you out of a speeding ticket, it should not get you out of a DQ at a TCS race.
where can we find the ROAR list of approved 13.5s? i think all my motors are illegal.

And for you, that was probably a long list for you to make sure ALL your motors were listed. So, are you going to run your typical Buzz Lightyear gearing ? The "to infinity and beyond" ratio ?

Stitchy - make sure to point out your GT-2 car just in case. I don't remember what it looks like.

Thanks!

Depends upon what day you are talking about. Website says 10 for Sat. (as in Sat Jan 31) practice. I'd bet race day Feb. 6 is crack of dawn/7AM.

Humm, nice looking car. Looks like something I saw in a Japanese magazine.

We will see if I can outrun the sharks.
