This recruit. I love the cab forward design. Actually looks like a truck. The D8T is the ugliest body on the market. Looks like someone stepped on the mold, and they went with it.

BTW, this issue is not an issue for now. This may change once we find out what the body guidelines will be.

I personally like all the cab forward bodies.

I wonder though, and this may be an ignorant question, but I understand ROAR to be the governing body, but of what? How many of the big races such as Nitro Challenge, Silver State, etc... go by ROAR rules? What races/series do?
I only ask because I do not know.

Some might like the new "CAB FORWARD" design but my problem I have with it is where is the windshield? How many TRUCKS have a windshield that is chopped to look out of proportion? I thin if you want it to be TRUCK+BUGGY= TRUGGY, you need to keep the truck look. A front grill, hood, windshield, and a bed(either with a roll bar look or no roll bar look). If looks has nothing to do with it, then the next thing will to allow stretched buggy bodies to be used instead of bodies that resemble a truck. There has to be a limit set before it does get out of control. This is where I think ROAR is attempting to go by allowing the MFG's to get together to define what the limit should be.

This topic will be irrelavent if (for instance) all the MFG's agree to make the roof line 1/4" taller and when mounted be parallel with the chassis. By the time a rule is put into place(if it comes to that, the current body styles will be outdated and not one will have them anymore anyway.

Goto page 49 here http://www.roarracing.org/downloads/..._Rule_Book.pdf

This envolves 1/10 electric truck(which also does not resemble a "REAL" race truck.

This is just my opinion.

Early truggy body



New style truggy body




The new one looks more like a real truck body?

LOL

This is why rules are started, the manufacturers push the limits, then the sanctioning body has to try and keep some semblence of the intention of the class.

I don't like the new style bodies at all, since they stray to far from reality, for what is supposed to be truck racing...but what really surpised me was people embraced it once other brands came out with their own versions.
I don't even think they should be able to run wings in truggy, but that is my opinion....obviously.

If aero is that important to you, race buggy class.






If it's just about racing and having fun, everyone can do that with something that looks a little like a truck, can't they?




What do spectators thinking about racing think when they see them going around a track? I know, since I brought some friends to a race recently. They asked me what they were supposed to be.

>Sigh< ok, done for now.
