Default What's legal??

While I am historically an honest pattern flier I am trying to talk my nephew into doing some racing over at Hodges this year or maybe somewhere else fairly close by. I have a half-dozen Quick V's either ready to go or under construction. Don't know how I ended up with that many, there must have been some kind of sale. Anyway, I need to know if these are still legal in Q-500 and what engines are in use that don't say Nelson on them. We're doing this for fun and are not likely to become hard core racers. Anything else I should know, a good web-site maybe?? Thanks to all.

Rick, you're on the right site!! The quick V is fine for racing. Most districts are using the TT Pro 40 engine with a APC 9X6 sport prop. Have fun .

The races at Mac Hodges specify the Thunder Tiger Pro 40.
Last race, we had about 16 entries, that is close to the normal
amount. Come on and race. Keep an eye on Mac's website
for the next race date. If you send him an e-mail, I am sure he
will add you to his mailing list that will advise you of upcoming
events. We need some more Alabamians to join and whip up on
the Dawgs.
Good Luck,
