I'm sorry I don't have more answers for y'all about what days ROAR will conduct tech, classes, etc. This info is above my pay grade! As soon as I know answers to any of these I will get the info on here.

James,
ROAR conducted tech pre and post race at all the nationals I have been to. What the OP is referring to is the pre-race tech procedures for motors, batteries, bodies, and tires. Once these are marked, the cars just go through the measurement template, RH, voltage, esc, and weight checks. The tech just looks for the pre-applied label for the body, motor, battery, and tires.

C'mon Mario. You, me, carpet racing. It'll be good no matter what classes are listed.

This race is probably at the worst time of year to be in a warm climate, with spring break being over that time of the year. Flights are expensive even from just a couple of states away. The classes are pretty important to people finalizing their plans to come out. A lot of Flights are on-sale right now and would be a good time to book, but without a formalized schedule and class list I am going to be holding out.

I am honestly a bit baffled why it is taking so long to announce the classes. Let's hope we see something in the next week or so...

I'm sure the holidays have something to do the delay. I'm anxious myself. Come on F1!

This is the first time I have seen ROAR take this long to prep for a race. The longer they prolong things, the smaller the crowd of participants is going to be.

Check the first post!

I'm working overtime to get the flyer finished.

@artwork-

lemme know where you're seeing the expensive flights from and I will work on finding affordable airfare from there.

@Mario-

We'd love to see you!

So no 13.5 class in either 10 0r 12th and can't run Mod and Stock together per last ROAR rules I saw, so as a 1/12th driver I can only run 1 class without buying another chassis platform..... It is good to see stock remain 17.5
