because there was 1 driver who won too much on the berms...

actually, I believe it was because it limited them too much on track layout possibilities....

Anthony???

That's only true with 5 cell brushless against 6 cell brushed. The invite guys that have to run brushed motors are gonna get screwed. Numan was slower than Jun last weekend at the Tamiya track when they were testing Gonna be interesting.

The track will require some rule deviations, such as lane width.
Could those be posted well before the race?

Also, the direction of the track can be changed beforehand, with the shape of the building, one corner of it jutting in, it would be best to run counter clockwise so as to have a high speed sweeper at the end of the strait along the drivers stand.
Thanks, Fred

Yeah.... brushless is the key. I still think brushed 5 cell will fade. We'll see.... interesting for sure. I think there will be surprises at Reedy as well.

For those attending, SIR is a top notch facility. Don't let its smaller size fool you. This track packs a punch.

I'm from southern california and i've traveled twice to SIR to race a regional TCS event. I know that will never compare to a ROAR Nationals, but know this, this track is the real deal, its a top notch facility. I call it the indoor Tamiya of the northwest.

Having a ROAR nationals there will only make the racing a lot more fun with all the top drivers coming out.

I've already made my plans to come back up next year for SIR for TCS. Dont miss this race. Again, Doug and his crew run a great track. A clean facility with an awesome atmosphere along with clean bathrooms and a great asphalt track.

Yes they were cool to look at, but where unfortunately built wrong. The lanes were too narrow and the amount of track designs we could come up with was very limited. The reaction since has been very positive with everyone enjoying the much larger, more technical, unlimited layouts available.

It's not something for discussion in a public forum.

I am staying at the same place, and I'm going to be there for the weekend before the nats also. They are supposed to be really nice suites, walking distance to the track but they also have shuttle service to nearby restaurants etc.

Can't wait to race and chill w/ some of the crazy NW crew, I know SIR is smaller but everyone I've talked to says that this will be a better race now that Doug at SIR is running the show.
Oh yea ..hehe I meant the 16th :-)
