I stopped by the track yesterday and the Bobcat was already delivered, so something is happening

ROAR Rules update

August 14, 2014

Rule 8.2.3

All chassis (including optional/aftermarket) in all electric classes (except those specifically noted) MUST accept batteries up to the maximum dimensions allowed for its application. Chassis must have at least 1 standard configuration (standard configuration to be saddle or stick pack) to fit a battery of maximum dimensions for that class or it will not be considered legal, and the racer will be disqualified. Foam blocks/spacers are permitted to help secure any size battery in its position. Electronics may also be located within the battery area when "shorty" or smaller legal batteries are used, provided that "permanent" mounts for the aforementioned don't preclude the installation of full size battery or saddle pack of maximum dimensions. The only exception is 1/8 off-road where it's common to use two battery packs to achieve the maximum 4S configuration, or to use a single 4S battery, which has a different specification. Only under these circumstances will the fitting of either configuration be considered legal, but the production chassis must still conform to batteries of the maximum allowable dimensions. Should a question arise as to whether the chassis will accept a full size pack it will be up to the racer to prove that the chassis meets all requirements.

For the spec stock tires, how will tech know they're softs or not? Before I mount tires, I scrub them down with simple green and the paint dot comes right off. I'm buying all my tires from the track, but just want to make sure I don't have issues in tech.

It means that you can now use whatever size battery you want. As an example: you can now place your esc/rx in the battery tray of a T4 and use a shorty pack.

Before, the rule stated you had to be able fit a "full size" pack in the car at all times regardless. Now, as long as the car is manufactured to fit a full size pack that's all that is required.

The jumps are medium sized. There's a triple jump but until the traction comes up, you will only be able to Double Single.

Hope this helps. Only 2 more days till Practice!
