I think the only requirement they have for the nats is that you be a current member of ROAR.

210 entries as of now Chazz. Entries are now closed until the week of the race.

What the heck happened to Stock Truck? Only 4 entries? Man, I wish it wasn't so expensive to enter or I'd run my truck since I'll be there anyways.

The track layout turned out to be a really fun one, judging by tonight's club racing...can't wait to get on it, myself. I hope I can get a bit of practice in before Saturday, it's got some interesting bits that will take some finesse, judging by what I saw tonight. It might end up being a faster layout than the Shootout, we'll see.

The new layout is very fast with a few very technical spots and a LOT of good passing areas. A couple of jumps tha you really need power or a good line to make it. Stock class seems to barely make the double towards the back of the track if they do not get good momentum. Some of the slightly faster stock guys had no issues clearing the double. The end of the straight has a LONG switchback that is a little tough towards the apex because it is a negative camber. Otherwise, this is by far one of the most fun layouts I have been on recently at HRH. The jumps are pretty easy on the car. The triple can be cleared easily by a 19 turn.

I will ask Jimmy if it is OK to post pics.

It's also a really great layout for Slashes, with the exception of that triple. Very good all around design, I think...like the previous poster said, a good mix of technical driving tests and hang time.

If you are asking about lipos, only ROAR approved Lipos can be run. Here is the current list...
