Has anybody made a decision or thought about splitting the series, North/South ,
I think that was a good idea, saves a lot of travel and expenses for a lot
of people,

Just wondering

Default Main Times

How come the nitro mains are 30 minutes and the electric mains are only 20 minutes for the Roar Region 2 Offroad 2015 Series? We pay the same money to race we should get the same amount of time on the track. You need to reduce the nitro mains to 20 minutes or do triple A's for the electric. The 4X4 SCT mains need to be 10 minutes not 8. We have no problem making 10 minutes with our 4X4 SCT. Also are the nitro buggy racers gonna marshal the nitro truggy racers and the nitro truggy gonna marshal the nitro buggy? PS same for the electric racers? This is what was done last season. Don't forget that the electric buggy class draws the most racers of any of the other classes.
