Rulebook still says 1418g for foam tire classes and 1500g for rubber tire classes.

ROAR cannot just change the rules mid-season, however they can grant a deviation if the host event asks for it. I think that if this "test" goes well it will be approved by the ExComm for next year.

Regarding the Qual points if the host asks for a deviation that could happen also.

Not to mention that a lighter cars are more exciting to watch



Sean: I don't think anyone expects ROAR to change the rules mid-season, simply because of the massive upset it would cause.

We asked, It didn't go through. The surface of the track through the race changes just the same as carpet if not less of a change.

Great thread topic! Also I really think the poll echos the majority of racers feelings. Driving a lead sled is bunk. who wants to pay $400 for a full carbon race kit only to have to buy $15 worth of lead to attach to the chassis?

Long live the type-R!

Who still uses lead for weight? I mostly see small brass, aluminum, or steel trays or tungsten weight.
