Clarification: 2.C Rear Tires It's probably been understood as legal but just to confirm: For rear tires, there are no maximum or minimum tire diameters or widths; just make sure the car meets clearance and dimensions stated in Section 2.A.
Clarification: 4.B Motors In Pro GTP, Koford and Pro Slot Group 12 armatures must display the manufacturer's "X12" or "12" tags. Untagged arms are not allowed.

2020 car building specs are attached.
This attachment includes all of the original specs from January as well as updates already announced prior to today.
In addition, there is a change that is effective today: Ball bearings will now be legal in Pro GTP motors with exception of the Hawk 7, Eagle, and Phoenix. In other words, if it's a rebuildable motor, you can use ball bearings in it.
I will send these out by email soon to everyone I have an email address for.

UPDATE, October 14, 2020:
The Top Secret Intimidator (TSM003) is now legal in the LMP and Pro GTP classes, effective immediately. It is available for purchase at PA Watson's Slot Car Raceway LLC in Houston and can be mail-ordered by phone (832-243-6566) or through the raceway's Facebook page.
1) This motor is new and not yet available at Magnatech in San Antonio and or Capital City Raceway in Pflugerville. In any other year, such lack of local availability would disqualify the motor from consideration, but with this year not being anywhere close to normal because of the COVID situation, racers from San Antonio and the Austin area have not been showing up while racers from Houston, where the motor is now available, have been regular racers in the series. Because the motor is available at the raceway nearest the racers who are participating, I am making it legal.
2) It is priced similarly to the Hawk 7 and Mid-America Eagle that many of us have been running for some time; $12.98 through the end of 2020.
3) It has VERY strong magnets much like the MA Eagle, making it somewhat difficult to get soldered in for all-thumbs guys like me. Additionally, I've tried out a prototype in an LMP flexi and found it extremely torque-y and difficult to drive. However, as they say, "your results may vary" with the right chassis setup and gearing.
