Default Touring Class Weight Minimum

In the rule book for the CLeveland Indoor Champs the minimum weight for TC's is listed at 50 ounces. In the ROAR rule book it is listed at 1525grams which is about 53.79 ounces. What is the real weight minimum and whay do the two conflict?

Thanks,
John

The 53.79 ounce rule is for rubber tires the 50 ounce rule is for foam tires.

Also, I believe the Cleveland race was not ROAR sanctioned.

I believe the ROAR limit of 1525g is including either personal or old style transponders.

Later,
The roar manual does not distinguish between tires. BOTH are on the same page and listed at 1525 grams. I too believe it has something to do with transponders. Anybody else?
