You knock ROAR rules for motors and batts, what about wheel base, min weight, ect? Who else is going to do it?
Big confusion. A turbine is a diferent technology. In turbine you can use new or old tecnology, as you wish.
In electric motors you can use new or old technology, as you wish.
You say Roar is for racing, i say ROAR is to protect some manufacturers.
I would like to see ROAR rules just as that dimensions for cars and motors, no colors for wires no size to magnets inside motors, that in fact will just allow that manufacturer. You know what I mean. ROAR rules (brushless) are made to protect Novak and LRP that in fact have the worst material for the scale. If those rules do not aply who will use that material? Why you can not use a Hacker motor in your car? or Electronic Model, or Kontronic? just to name a few, they have the same sizes.
Look at the rules for 1:8 OffRoad and understand why they are so popular, they do not tell you the motors you may use, they don't tell the brand of fuel you can use...and so on. And most important they do not use tricks to achive that.
