Figure i would post this here for the upcoming Carpet Nationals.


Feb 17, 2010 - At the request of the host of the Carpet Nationals, ROAR will be making changes to the classes offered. The entry flyer will reflect the changes. If you have already signed up and would like to make changes to your entry, please contact Ruben Benitez, Competition Director, at [email protected] immediately.

- The event will permit the Sportsman Stock drivers to compete in a foam class of 17.5 Touring Car Foam.
- The 13.5 Touring Car Foam option will be dropped.
- The event will add a Trans AM class for all racers to participate. Also, the WGT class is open to all racers as well.

hopefully you guys can make this race!!!

Some people complained about the initial class restrictions. It took until now to see the effects on signups. I would actually consider going now.

Would this be the first ROAR VTA National Championship?

This would be. Remember, the rules are a little different. ANY 21.5. Also, it may be completely open ESC, so check with the track. Hotwire, baby...

I thought RCGT was a spec tire class. Is that a list of three different allowed tires? A link to complete rules would make it a bit easier to commit.

Are the "current USVTA rules" the ones on the first page of this forum? (i.e., only the Novak SS21.5 Pro brushless motor (pn:3421))
No speed control rules?

HPI X pattern radials come in 3 different types and all are legal

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXBSZ2&P=ML

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXM979&P=ML

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXM978&P=7

-Any 1/10th scale 4WD Touring Car chassis.
-Any "realistic/scale" Touring Car/GT body (No "Race" bodies, Stratus, Mazda 6 etc.)
-Bodies should represent models that are running or had been run in the Touring Car, GT2, GT1 classes in ALMS, LeMans, Speed Challenge etc.
-Any 26mm spoked wheels (no dish wheels)
Allowable X-Pattern tire choices are up to the race organizer, with competitiveness and cost in mind:
-HPI #4790 X-Pattern Radial Tire 26mm D-Compound (base spec tire)
-HPI #4490 X-Pattern Radial Tire Pro Compound 26mm (stickier compound for improved traction)
-HPI #4495 X-Pattern Radial Belted Tire Pro Compound 26mm (sticky and belted tire, allows for more speed)
-Kit Lexan wing (flat realistic wing if included) or Plastic realistic wing set(s) only (keeping in mind the spirit of realism of the class)
-27T/17.5 Motor Limit.
-6 cell NiMH or 2 cell LiPo 7.2/7.4v battery limit.
-Suggested minimum weight limit: 1400 grams
