On the other point, I agree that most ROAR rules only apply to ROAR events. However, the stock motor rule is what is used to define the stock class at most races. My opinion is that if a race director doesn't specifically state that the they are going to make an exception to allow the Binary motors in the stock class prior to race day, then the motor should be considered illegal.
I think you know how well race directors tech at the club level. They rarely do.
If we ACTUALLY used ROAR Rules for club events think of all the things that would get caught in the fishnet:
-Cars that are significantly underweight
-Broken timing tabs (racers cutting the tabs to advance timing)
-19T motors in stock cans with shape corrected shafts
-brushless use in stock class?
There are many more issues at the club level to worry about than if someone is running 4 mag motor in stock.
Manufacturers now have quad mags for mod and 19T. Stock cant be too far behind.
