The entry form is pretty clear...

limit 2 sets additional per class. You get one full set (4 tires) with your entry. Then, you can PREORDER up to 2 full sets - or 4 pair. You get to choose front and/or rear.

Also, 12.4.7 on page 77 in the 2007 ROAR rule book discusses the handout tire rules pretty well. It goes through to the end of page 78.

Panther Tire will be the handout tire of choice. Unless something changes between right now and the next few days, that's the decision due to availability of the product.

the track has fully covered pit areas and driver's stand... they will have onsite concessions and a on site hobby shop as well. They have the most incredible radio impound and tech area I've seen in a long time and the traction... amazing!!!

This is a primo facility... and its a club. Every dollar they get from club racing ($5.00 for 2 classes) goes back into the track and they are very creative with sponsors.

You guys will love this place!

2wd front - red or silver Taper pins
4wd front - red or silver tapers or blockheads
2wd/4wd rear - Red BK Bars
truck fronts - red or silver Tapers or 8-Ribs
Truck rears - Red Tapers

i'm sure the panther tires would work similarly, but definitely not as good, as Losi tires don't worry bout pro-lines, you'll get 3-4 minutes on a set of R3s or M3s

tires for this race will be Panther Tire.

Buggy: med soft bobcat and soft switch 2.0
Truck : med soft switch and soft switch 2.0
4wd: med soft 4wd bobcat and soft switch 2.0

This is what will be ordered in exact quantities based on the preorders from the entry flyers at 30 days prior to the event. 1 week prior to the event, adjustments will be made to the order as necessary. The tires will be branded prior to shipping as ROAR handouts and when the driver checks in, the tires will be marked with their driver number (not car number) for each class.

Just to let you guys know... yes, this event will sell out pretty quickly! With combining the stock and mod portions of the nationals, we are expecting double the people. This event will be full at 300.

Currently, on the 22nd, we have 25. (yes, Dakotah, your in!! )

The tire order will go in 30 days prior to the event. So, if you wait until after the deadline, there's a good chance you'll only have the tires you get with your entry and no additional.

Just a reminder....

panther soft compound is pretty much the same as losi red and switch's work very well
panther med soft is similar to losi silver
there should be no problems with the tires at the nats
hope this helps travis

Dawn,

I know that drivers entered in the Junior buggy class can't enter stock buggy, but can they enter 19t buggy?
