Hmmmm.....I still think that ROAR should do something that makes it more cost effective to go to the races. Remember in the days when there was no hand out tires there were 400 or more plus entries now what 200 to 150.......hmmmm your right its worth it. Lets see you can go to the Cleveland US Indoor champs and stock is only 5 dollars more then mod and you get to race at one of the best and toughest races here in the US. And you dont need to run any hand out tire or join a club that does not seem to be doing a whole lot when the going gets tough and decisions need to be made. I just think that the price of ROAR races is getting outa hand. There are far more races that are not ROAR run and get way more people and are tougher races to go to, this has to mean something

I forgot...the Sorex Type A firm insert is actually between a Yokomo Firm & an HPI blue inserts. ....and work very well.

If the temp is up there...run the HPI blues! ...and look for the 25mm rims....give just enough air gap and help out on the side bit that BigDog spoke about.

Hi Guys,

A lot of local guys here have been using the new Yokomo thin inserts in their Sorex 36R with great results. Yokomo released these new thinner inserts a couple of months ago, and their part number is ZR-039M (medium) and ZR-039F (firm).

Thanks

Steve Wang

Anybody know if they're going to allow the new Protoform Stratus 2.0 at the Nats?

Not unless ROAR approves it pretty soon. So far I have not heard any thing about it being approved. I will ask when I go racing on Sunday.

Later, Lee

Im not starting a war here but I have been to a couple NORRCA races here in the midwest area and the only times I hear guys complaining about NORRCA is when the race is on the west coast. I dont know what thats about but its just what I have seen. Maybe its because they have more races there or just some of the racers there like to complain more.....but we all like to complain its in the RC racer hand book to never be happy with what you have.

Anyway it just would be nice to see some more changes done with the governing bodies. Look over seas they dont seem to have as many complaints or problems that we seem to have all the time over here.

And Yes I know this got wayyyyy of topic but what ever....back to the bat cave............

Hopefully later this upcoming week we can go up to Venture and practice indoors (say on Thurs)? BTW when are you planning on getting your new 12th scale car?

Speedtech> yes i agree with you! we're also using thinner inserts here and its great. we use the echo standard inserts which if u compare it to other standard inserts are much thinner though they also sell a thin version for the inch-up rims. plus echo have different colors for their inserts unlike the yoke inserts. i still have to try the yoke though!
