Make all the battery rules you want...

Simple fact, equipment will ALWAYS be important a national level race.....and to attempt to prove a point by saying people winning these big races would struggle if they had regular store bought packs is nuts...

These guys dominate at home with regular stuff.....no team wastes team stuff for practice or local events.....

When trav won the summer sizzler, his batteries were out of the the left over from our previous order....aka, the stuff nobody would buy......certainly not anything I would sell for a high dollar, let alone take to a national event...good to know he ran circles around you guys down in tacoma with them.....didn't he like not even qualify and beat all you guys?

So, no practice, clearance packs.....same motor all weekend.....yep, he needs special stuff to win....I love it.

Twice a year now, in the new rule book:

8.3.6 Battery approvals will be processed on a bi-yearly basis. All proposed cells must be received by the ROAR Technical Director by the 1st of September for approval by October 1st or received by April 1st for approval by May 1st. The final decisions on approvals will be communicated to the manufacturer/distributor or assembler and posted on the website listing when approved.

When will people realize that the equipment doesn't make you fast...practice and talent is where it's at. And why is it that these people who think it's the equipment CONSISTENTLY start stupid threads wanting to limit this and limit that.

The only limit this hobby needs is bitching and moaning. It should be capped at 0.

In that case ...
Show us just one non sponsored racer that is winning Mod ....

I don`t know of even one racer like this ....


There is no such thing as a pro stock racer ....


If they refuse to move up and stop racing stock after being a National Stock champ , they will be nuthin but a Turtle in my eyes....


Some example these turtles make for new & up coming racer .

They should show some class, do the right thing after a winning Stock Nats and move up !

They might even

set a fine example for all in the stock class`s ....

Be the R/c star ,stuff like that !

I think this sums it up. If people spent half the energy practicing as they do on moaning and groaning about a new frickin battery every quarter, there would be twice the number of people out there that can have a "fast" club t-shirt to wear . Get the hell over it people. Try LiPo, you might like it.

I say look at it this way. If you take the same bicycle as Lance Armstrong, because for only 6000+ dollars you can have one, and people do buy them. Then go and race him, who do you think is going to win? Talent will always win.

Well with this example you not only need talent, you would also have to be extremely physically fit.

This thread sounds to me like someone got their butt kicked at the carpet nats And the only reason why they didn't do good was they didn't get those special batts that only the pros get... I mean what other reason could there be for not making the A?
