How did Ty Tessman and Ryan Cavalieri run Holeshots then? Aren't they VTR 4.0's?

All I know is a buddy of mine took his car to tech and the 4.0 revolvers did not pass on the buggy.

I dont think it was but they had the ROAR book out and they sure were using ROAR rules to tech the cars.

no, the new truggy tires by proline are 4" , they are illegal and proline is the only one who makes a wheel that will fit so you will have to get the proline wheel

That was the point I was trying to get across yesterday. Club races don't tech and larger events don't follow roars rules to a T.
