Marcus, I would also require that the race car stays at the location where the heat ended; no taking the car to the pits. If the cars are allowed to go to the pit area during the 2 minute lane change period, it will be difficult to determine if the car was worked on illegally.

We ran a Defender chassis with one-piece aluminum pans and Orca body.  The car was really stuck.  It handled like it had a GTP body on it.  
 
The JK Premium handout tire wear, for us, turned out to be about  RH tire: .035" diameter per hour and LH:  .025".
 
The handout motors (Hawk Retros) were overall pretty equal but our second motor was slow-when-cold / 2-stepping at the beginning of each heat.  From what I was overhearing, it sounded like some of the other teams had the same problem to one degree or another.

We ran the same setup; Defender center section with black anodized aluminum side pans with the RTR Orca body. We ran the entire race on 1 set of tires!
