Cars handle very good when traction is good.
how is that any different from any of the other Hanulec's 12th scale ventures?

Yes, our on-site event hobby shop will have some 1/12 parts in stock. Anything you specifically foresee needing? I'll pass the request along to the shop.

Any blinky ROAR esc

4.2 FDR limit (based on the fastest overdrive if installed)
VTA tires DO NOT need to be bought at the event, but only the stock inserts are legal (as usual).

I just got a reply back from ROAR , heres what they said in part of my email
*
2) The ROAR rules require that two full heats (20 entries) be present for the class to be considered. If there are enough to make a single main, perhaps it will be allowed, but that will be at the discretion of the Race Director or designated ROAR official. In the event the class does not get enough entries, it may be cancelled, in which case the entry fees would be refunded

We have only 6 drivers for 12th scale so far ... Not looking to good so far , I'm going to pay my fee's in the next day or two but that will only be seven of us .....

That may be the rule but I think it is rarely followed. 2 years ago at the carpet nats at Mimis I think only on class had 2 full heats and they still raced everything advertised.

roar pretty much ignores its own rules when it comes to money, they will let the 6 of you race, and they will break their rule about 3 a mains also.

or i should say they have done that at every race so far..

Hi Mike,

We were looking forward to this race - the track looks amazing.

Unfortunately, my mother-in-law turns 70 on the Thursday (28th) and a party was booked for that night. I looked into flying back for it and getting back to NJ on the Friday morning - but we would miss too much of the practice/qualifying to make it work.

I hope everyone has a great weekend - and we will see everyone at the IIC in October - if not before.

Regards,
Ian
