I'm rethinking the 18K motor limit. As Arden mentioned on the FRC WhatsApp chat, with 18K motors the MP and BTCC classes would be very similar. I would like to propose that we go back to 20K motors, of course limiting torque to under 200 gm/cm.

Not sure what the similarity between the BTCC and MP classes will mean? The effort here if I am right is to slowdown the class as they seem to be getting too fast and difficult to compete with on a budget. What we experience with some of the lower speed classes is better competition and .... fun! However, I am keen to go with what ever is chosen as we can always review the rules if the desired results are not achieved.

Hi guys,
I'd be okay with the 20k rpm limit with a torque cap of 200 g.cm.
