It has been pointed out that there are a few corrections that did not make the final printing of the 2003 USRA rulebook. They are:

1. page 38 k. (should read) Armature may be reconditioned and/or re-sized, green coating may be removed. Must be minimum diameter of .513".

2. page 38
4. Magnets (16D)
Height .580" MINIMUM
length .650" MINIMUM
Thickness .145" MINIMUM
These are the measurements that were decided upon in order to cover all of the magnets that are currently in production. The problem with the measurements as they are in the book is that they do not represent what is currently being produced in the market.
3. Page 44
B) Motor
1) Super 16D
(should read) See Page 45 d) Super 16D
4. Page 46
F) Axles/Tires/Wheels
(second to last line) Black tires only:
minimum diameter .750", maximum .810"
5. Page 33 Approved components GP-12
Proformance Racing (should be) PRI-201,
201A,201B, PRI-202,202A,202B.

Sorry for the confusion. I sent the book out and had it proof-read by three people and we all missed these.

Does that mean that I can use .910" wide rear tires on my GTP cars? (looks like you've got another typo on page 46, para. F) :p

I will have to defer to Roy or Greg on this one. I looked at last years' book and it is the same as last year. Roy or Greg can you answer this one?

The mistake was also in the 2002 book.

GTP uses the .810 maximum width, .750 minimum diameter tires same as GT1 and 4" stock car.
