Just a thought,

No one seemed to care that the Reedy race was in the same place every year and I doubt that the IIC will be moving out of Vegas any time soon.....LOL You did a good job and all they can say is no so what's the harm in putting in for it again

Thanks guys! Im not sure it could happen, but thanks! I know this for sure if I were given the race again I would be lobbying for a class of Tamiya Minis. I asked for it last time and did not get it. Who knows though, it could happen.

I also have been lobbying for the race to be on the same date from year to year. The "outlaw" races have a big advantage because competitiors can plan a year ahead. ROAR Nationals always seem to be a last minute decision (relatively speaking) and drivers have to see if they can fit it in.

I also think we should open the race up to anyone regardless of country of origin. Having the best drivers in attendance would give the race more prestige.
I'm all for that but if you listen carefully in the pits most of the whining about Hara being allowed to run the Roar nats came from factory driver's. The same sort of thing was heard at this years Reedy as well. People were happy about the no tire prep rule because it took an advantage away from the euro's ...mainly Mark R. It's not his fault that he took the time and learned what works on rubber tire's. We are to foam tire happy around here and if a track doesn't have super high bite we (Americans) act like we don't know how to set up a car. I say open it up and let the chips fall where they may. I'm never going to win a nats and I know that but watching great racing is awesome. I don't have all the answers to bring the crowds back to our hobby/sport but most of the problem starts right here in our own back yard.

I would say that just being able to watch the greatest drivers in the world participate at these races should help the turn-outs. It would be like added entertainment value for the week.

I agree. Foams are great tires, but does 1:10 need two sets of rules for Foam and Rubber? Rubber tires can perform well on Carpet and Asphalt, so why not keep it simple and the same page as the rest of the world.

Or America can be different and run a hybrid Foam/Rubber tire....called CAPS!
