    I would appreciate further clarification on the inclusion of JMRCA motor lists for spec classes, and specifically the reasoning behind the decision and the research u ndertaken. My concerns relate to the following questions I have:

    1. Which list specifically? JMRCA appear to have approval lists on an annual basis, but allow motors from the last 3 years to be used in competition
    2. Where specifically is the approved list published?
    3. Are you certain that motor specs for JMRCA are the same as ROAR/BRCA? I note that some manufacturers (eg Much More) offer “J Spec” motors which are legal for JMRCA but illegal for ROAR/BRCA and said to be faster. I would be very concerned if we are allowing motors that outclass existing motors by design or the rules they run under
    4. It is not a simple exercise to find, read and understand JMRCA rules because of language barrier. This makes it difficult for the average person to investigate JMRCA legal products
    5. Many of the JMRCA motors are not readily available in Australia. Should one or two prove to be significantly faster that forces competitors to go hunting in Japanese stores to find motors

    There may be other questions/concerns as well.

    Thanks

    I note a new for 2014 rule set for EP on-road published at the ORRCA Q website overnight.

    I would appreciate further clarification on the inclusion of JMRCA motor lists for spec motor classes, and specifically the reasoning behind the decision and the research and consultation undertaken before making the decision.

    My concerns relate to the following questions I have:

    2. Where specifically is the approved list published?

    6. I don’t think (but I am not certain) AARCMCC allow JMRCA motors. If not, it would seem better to stick with the same standards used in the rest of the country?

    There may be other questions/concerns as well.

    Thanks
