Default OCS Goes LiPo!!!!!

Well the day many of you have been waiting for is finally here! OCS is now able to run LiPo Batteries in select classes. Touring Car, 1/12th scale, and WGT classes are now LiPo classes. Mini and TA will remain nickle based batteries with the following change...Both TA and Mini will be restricted to sport pack Nickle based batteries. In order for us to be able to use LiPo cells the following new rules MUST be followed:

- No charging of LiPo cells will be allowed along side of the buildings.
- You may pit further down in the parking lot to charge your LiPo cells or a charging table will be available in the timing tent where you can charge your batteries.
- LiPo sacks must be used
- Charging/discharging of LiPo batteries will be done in accordance with ROAR guidelines.

New classes are as follows:

- Grand Touring (GT) - 6 cell 7.2v NiXX or 2 cell 7.4v LiPo cells
- 1/12th scale and WGT - 4 cell 4.8v NiXX batteries with stock 27T brushed motor or 17.5 brushless motor, 1 cell 3.7v LiPo battery with 19T brushed motor or 13.5 brushless motor.
- Mini - Motor rules stay the same, batteries change to sport pack Nickle based battery.
- Trans Am - No rules changes.
