Lets try this if you want to retain a 1/8 stub to only allow 1/8 props say yes or no. To use only a factory strut and mine is worn out but works fine yes or no. For factory style turn fin Grim Racer parts are fine yes or no . We pretty much agree on the rest but I do have one other question....can I turn the rear fins around so my boat resembles a Circus Circus or Squire Shop boat?? They will still be in place....

on the 1/8 stub yes you can only use 1/8 props.

strut i think you should be able to upgrade to better (but must be same size and shape as factory), but must be attached to the boat the same as factory.

turn fins upgraded yes.

and yes on the cowl mod as long as it has an air dam.

yes you can turn wings around backwards.

rudder i think can be changed as the plastic piece sometimes breaks at the wrong time and if you have to use stock then you cant rig it to work so you can finish the day. as it is now i still use the stock rudder cut down but when it does break i would like to put on one thats a little more durable.

I have captured this discussion into rules with 6 voting options. The first three voting options are now active on intlwaters at www.intlwaters.com/index.php?showtopic=42737&st= The voting will end at midnight next Sunday, then we will vote on options 4-6. At the conclusion we will have another open discussion. I invite you all to vote at the above website. Please contain as much discussion to this site, and post your name after your vote, as some of you have handles on intlwaters that are different from your name. Thank You all for your input thus far. Lets make this class great.

I'm curious as to why there is so much debate on the rules when someone using a "not-stock" pipe was the only real issue we had this year???

Agreed on the same page but seems as if everybody was with the exception of some pipes sneaking in there. Just dont understand all this debate when there was a set of trial rules in place in 2008 that was pretty clear cut, only needed a few minor modifications to that and they'd been fine, but happy this will all be done so it's clear to everyone. Looking forward to kickin some RTR butt in 2011...hehe :laugh: :laugh:

Those rules were a starting point and this set will be submitted for national implementation. We just want to get it right and it seems we have the highest concentration of RTR boater around. All bases will be covered filling in loopholes ...

They were a good starting point. This sounds more like you said, filling in the "grey" areas. Dont want anybody to think I was disputing the fact were doing this, Totally agree with it. Glad we'll have something to turn to if a problem arises.
