In your case Southwest fly 6-7 time daily from Manchester to BWI book early for the best price...

I recently heard that ROAR is changing the weight limit for TC to 1425g in time for this race.

Any truth to this?

I checked the ROAR site and did not see anything about it.

Default Flyer Update

Here is the updated flyer with current sponsors and a suggested hotel. Remember when booking your stay at the Best Western remember to say you are with the ROAR 2009 Nationals to get your discounted rate. The hotel is great; free pool, free breakfast with eggs waffles and cereal, and wireless internet!

I went this past wekend.. Man that entire place and staff is AWESOME!!! Track is off the hook with traction. A place like no other for sure. Very smooth and mega bite. Tire wear was great with 1 set lasting 3 heats and main with no issue with no drop off in lap times. Traction compound of most was Tire tweak. Jaco Blues were awesome and those are tire for National event. Key to place is try and get car to drive consistant, The fastest car may no always win. Current layout Spool was choice of 60% feild with 40% 1 ways. Its going to be a great event!!!!

No diffs at all?, did the basic setups have lots of camber or were the jacos ok on that track without so much.

Camber anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5.

I ran a oneway. When the traction came up in the 3rd and main. The car wasn't as easy to drive. Mi3 worked good all weekend.

I did..R9 felt good while I tested it Monday I was there. Had great turn in but just kept the nose a little too glued. Where the LC body was almost as good as R9 but more stable to ebrupt movements.....

My Kid wound up running the R9 thou all weekend.

R9R Body..
