Thanks guys. No need to bash ROAR ....they are only doing what they see fit which is fine with me. Hopefully they will come up with a good solid package for next year.

You can only hold your breath for so long before you have to come up for air.After what you said in the e-mail I thought I write to them but it would be a waste of time.

Been there, done that, had it happen, too bad EA.

Wonder if ROAR will actually ever change the rule book to read 2011, before 2011 is over.

Seems that some dont like when people speak their true opinion and use the word "Dumb" when referring to a rule when asked about it.

Good luck to them....

Which one was the kicker?

I referred to a rule about you are able to tech 3 motors per class at a national race. If you want to change rotors you can not if all 3 of your motors have been teched. A rotor change is considered another motor. Beats the purpose of having an open motor. I said it was the rule but dumb.

Nothing more

I hate to hear this EA, I was looking forward to hopefully seeing a fresh take on some of the existing rules and classes. I can't think of anyone better for the job than a guy who is so well respected and knowledgeable in the rc industry. Their loss!

Do not ever stop speaking your mind Eric.You are a well known and respected person in the hobby of R\C racing.
The problem with the world is that the truth scares a lot of people!!!!
And logic is a lost art!

I thought that was an elected position. Was it an appointed position instead?
