Ok, so they decided to go a no timing class. Not horrible, but why another slower class? We still have 13.5's, why not do a 13.5 timing class? Instead of keeping with the speed of 17.5 x, you slowed it down.

I have to re-up my roar member ship to get on that forum.. The year I wanna run stock they slow it down again, haha..

what new motor do you have to buy, your saying you don't own a 17.5. or are you saying you wanted to run the slowest class possible and will have to buy a 21.5........ just messing




I never liked the spliting of the class into timing and no timing, sponsored and sportsman, it was complete BS IN MY OPINION. if guys need to slow down then make it 21.5, I got my wish, I don't care if its timing or not, also in my opinion timing is BS for what is suppose to be a "stock" class (now that is a change of opinion I will admit). the most popular racing and most fun racing that I have been around has been silvercan racing, It is also my opinion that the silvercan voodoo has ruined that class like timing ruined the stock class. 25.5 is closer to a silvercan then a 21.5 I can't wait to run strapped in 21.5at Timezone, knowing that every lap has to be spot on, passing will be a bitch and you really have to have your car in tip top shape.

17.5 and 21.5 for me, no boost, no problem.

I just really hope that they will stick with something for a period of time. I do not look forward to buying a new esc and/or motor every year.

The barrier to entry on ROAR's forum is too high. Nobody will ever use it. Ever. If you don't talk about it here, you may as well send out surveys on stone tablets via snail mail, you'll get more feedback that way. I understand what they were trying to do, but it's not going to work. You can listen to me now, or later, but I'm right. Sorry it didn't work out.

As far as the classes go, man, I dunno. I think IIC and Snowbirds has the classes right, at least for touring car. Only difference is I'd consider making amateur 21.5 unboosted.

Hopefully EA's presence will help guide ROAR in the right direction.
