View Full Version : IRRA™ motor list is being "unfrozen"

06-20-2013, 11:52 AM
Due to the continuing uncertainty regarding availabilty of the Falcon 7 motor, the IRRA™ BoD has voted to "unfreeze" the FK section of the IRRA™ approved motor list and to accept submissions of similar motors for consideration to be added to the list. Submitted motors must meet the same wind specs of 65 turns, wire size, etc., and must deliver a similar level of performance compared to motors currently on the approved list.

New motor submissions will be accepted until September 1, 2013. Samples of submitted motors will need to be sent to each of the five IRRA™ Board members for inspection and testing.

Preliminary testing of 65t motors has been conducted at IRRA™ request by Tony P and Trinity, and the company is expected to submit a motor for consideration.

What was it that they were saying about the USRA? LOL

What they say about the USRA is that one person usually makes the rules to suit himself. And the king is usually someone who didn't want to be elected in the first place.

That doesn't doesn't happen in IRRA(tm).

Other than feeling the need to control things, why not allow raceways and Retro Racing Organizations to just use the FK style motors of their choice?

This is already happening at many tracks anyway.

What good will come out of raceways having to stock more motors when there are plenty of good choices on the market already?
