Jon, you mad man
- just get one zapped so we can see how it goes. Build the rest of the car up so it is EAHORC F1 legal.

Really pleased that you (and Ross?) will be there. Are you car pooling with Clive and Marc (otherwise known as 2 Lane BlackTop)?

That is cool. The carpooling aspect has certainly helped EAHORC grow.

If Ross comes as well we might have enough for three Pro finals again. I am joining in the fun next season, not that that should scare anyone

There was no guarantee when I announced the class that there would even be enough for an A final, so I am well chuffed. Is Ross coming on the 19th then?

As for the amps question, I knew I would get pressure from the Pro guys to pump more in, just as I did over balanced arms, but I am going to hold firm on that one. I have cheap, portable, easily replaceable power supplies that work with all classes, so will stick with those.

However, if HONK go for an adjustable power supply, something that can be contemplated more easily with a permanent track, perhaps a 5A Pro race could be a support race for next year's HO Grand Prix.

There are lots of options out there, and I always have my eyes open, but the current 18V units are regulated and seem to be doing a good job.

I'd like to see what the ProMods can do unfettered too, but it would probably have to be some kind of support race. If the HOGP does end up being a 2 day event (and I have had zero feed back on that so far) then that would be viable

Those laptop power are regulated, it wasn't really meant as a serious suggestion as I think you need some means of limiting performance, other wise pro mod would just become a matter of who has the biggest magnets and the most powerful arm, whereas now you have to balance speed and grip.
