Yes, in any of the 17.5 classes your esc must meet the ROAR Sportsman class rules and be on the list of approved esc's in the approved "blinky" mode.

And two more compelling reasons:

Most common chargers struggle to reach 1c at higher voltages.

Charging at a much higher voltage is difficult at tracks with limited/no power.
4s batteries are less expensive than 6s.

The voltage limit has been 7.2v for 1/10th racing for two decades (we used to run 7-cells in mod) and the equipment stabilized. It will for 1/8th too. Cars will get lighter and power demands will become lower. If things are getting too hot or not making time there is already a solution in place. Set it up to go slower.

To those who believe ROAR is oblivious to what's going on at club races, two points. They are only obligated to clubs/tracks that are ROAR members. There is a kalidescope of different clubs out there, doing lots of different things (outside of ROAR), if they were to be considered, the rules would still be a compromise.

wow i didn't realize how much stuff im not legal with according to ROAR.

I do hate their rules especially for 1/8th electric, BUT the area I don't mind them especially contrary to alot of the ROAR haters is CORR.

Why? CORR is not the fast class like buggy and truggy are, its in my pinion, the "low cost" spec class that is pigeon holed on purpose to bring out the driver in you not the equipment. And for that reason I do like their rules in that class. I do like the notion of running a class that is striving for realism to the Real life scale versions too. Buggy and especially truggy are totally lost there and fine, let them go rule wise. I hate their 4s and body rules for those 2 classes. I like RC PRO rules in Buggy and Truggy. But keep CORR pure IMO.

here's a pic of carl renezeder full scale sc truck with no front windows (front, left and right) and openings in the bed area. So is roar's ruling to make the trucks look scale, then it must be ok to cut out, right?

Chad, you have a great point about the windows

I painted 4 SC bodies today bodies (for 2 trucks) today so I could have vented bodies for Nats... and so I could have 2 uncut ones incase I can't run them

Waaayyyy too much work.

It seems the bigest thing for nats this year is going to be SC bodies.

The rules are so undefined on what can come out I'm sure were going to end up having a meeting on it.....
