You can call the shop to see if we have it in stock, if not, we can order it and have it in by the end of the week.

......... You can always run a brush motor in brush mode on your speedo. We do allow you to run the 13.5 in Club Racing.

Lipo's are allowed, as long as the car meets the Wt. requirement. And the 17.5 BL Motor is the motor of choice in stock........... But for those wanting to run 13.5 besides Stock Sedan, you can run it in 19T Sedan.

We are trying to get the 17.5 motors in stock before the race.

ROAR has allowed 17.5 turn BL motors into stock.

ROAR has also allowed the use of 7.4v Lipo's, but the cars must still make minimum weight. There are also very specific recommendations when using lipo's, like charging packs in containers. Check the ROAR website for some interesting info on lipo's. It's up to 360 to enforce the rules as they see fit.

Yea, I know that 360 isn't a ROAR track (yet) but they still want to follow ROAR rules since that's what other big races do.

NP in Club Races but Trophy Events, it is a Big Advantage to run that motor in 1/12 Scale Stock. It's like running a 19T.
