So, just to (respectfully) play devil's advocate, will the minimum weight for the RROC sedan classes also be 1350g?

All the ones I've seen have been D-compound X-Patterns on zero offset white split-6 rims:

No, the other class rules will be which ever the regular ROAR/IFMAR based weight rules are.

RCGT….What a great class to compliment a great event.

Since the Roadrunners are hosting the RCGT Showdown grand finals…..only 9 days away, it only seems appropriate to add RCGT to our RROC warm up race. Now we will be offering the winner of all (3) divisions a paid entry to the Reedy Race of Champions at Speedworld.

We have opened up our classes to allow drivers run more then one class; this will stay as the same format. RCGT will have a “primary” and secondary” class. Please give us a day or so to modify the on line entry to add RCGT. I will post an update when registration is ready.

Thanks
Steve

Just a few updates for everyone.

Weight. Should be 1400 grams. Sorry for the mistake.

Preglued tires for RCGT will come on white 0 offset split 6 wheels

No HPI Escudo bodies.

Glad to see that you guys are excited for the addition of this class.

Steve: Thanks for adding it to the warm up.

Scotty
