If you can't produce either then I'll know it's BS. As for tech at this race, the Portland crew was promised all of ROAR's tech equipment and was delivered nothing. The guys running the race did their best to construct tech equipment to enforce ROAR rules and make the event run smoothly. All 3 major mags reported positive coverage of the way the race was run beginning to end so for you to say this was the worst run event you've ever been to it's quite frankly BS.

It was EddieO who brought it up to me. The person who supposedly did this claimed to Eddie that it was an accident/joke and that he didn't actually run the motors, but Eddie mentioned that the motor was warm in his hands and it was right after said driver's race. I was sitting inside the brOOd trailer talking with Sushi Boy when Eddie told the story...

I knew about the missing jigs and this was clearly ROAR's fault. But at the same time, I think there was a mistake by ROAR in the first place having a nitro club hosting an Electric race. I also have problems with the host club charging for pit spaces AND electricity. All in all there were a lot of things done very wrong at that race.

If any of you caught the coverage of the Novak Race here on RC TECH, Scotty and Trackside Hobbies showed some insight as to how good the coverage of the Vegas race will be.

Remember What happens in Vegas..... Will be Broadcast WORLDWIDE!

Jeff

ROAR does not provide tech equipment....whether that is right or wrong is a separate issue. But the fact that currently the host is required to have tech equipment.

I was in Vegas last year and decided to check out all the hobby shops supporting rc in the Yellow Pages. No indoor tracks except for Mini Z. It was extremely disappointing as far as electric car parts availability. The outdoor on-road track (3 spades?) there was way too big for electric cars...nitro was the only name of the game there.

Better bring everything you may need to support your own effort.

Problem is, results have to be protested within 15 minutes of the posting of the race or round rssults in question. I don't think one can protest results from a previous day's racing.

I think the only thing a protest can accomplish at this point is scaring a driver using an unapproved motor into using an approved one for the mains for fear of being protested properly, then disqualified.
The protest was filed, heard and rules on my committee. The written protest was to despute missed laps added to a racers time. The reasoning was that the racer is responsible to ensure proper working condition of the transponders.


The rules do not include this language. Therefore the protest was denied.

A suggestion for future race directors is to find a volunteer with an internet connection to provide the general RC racing community with timely updates on the net. It should be that person's only job and that person would be fed the "unofficial" results from the race director at regular intervals. It would be nice and the race director who set it up would be a hero.

You can see the type of coverage that you have suggested........

I feel real bad for everyone who is going to miss their main due to travel arrangements at this point. Nothing could be worse than spending $500-$1000 on a race and then not getting to run your main...

I am very gald I didn't attend this race this year. I just hope that this poor example of a National brings ROAR into focus on what it is they are trying to accompish. So far, I'd say they have alot of work to do from all the mistakes being made at the Nats this year.

Issues so far:
1) Lack of professionalism by staff
2) Obvious oversights - minimum lap, inventory, chairs
3) Track, jugs as corner weights? c'mon that's ghetto.
4) JLAP - the first time a lap was missed in qualifying, they should have stopped to check the system. I suspect that this same issue was present in practice... Why wasn't it addressed then?
5) Main Setup
6) Online results/ providing results
7) Pitting
8) Power

Seems like everything that could go wrong did. I've been to four of the past Nats, and as I recall all the tracks avoided the above issues altogether.

Point being, if you can't host a National and give it the effort it deserves, don't apply for one.
Tremendous post. Well said.

Get rid of David Lee!!. He has forgotten this, pay attention to the racers that pay for racing, not only to the racers that get paid to race. It is very unfortunate for ROAR to have someone like this in his place with such a power trip? He wanted to DQ someone for tossing a water bottle???? What the f#%$?? All in all other than these problems, I enjoyed myself. Team Corally was awesome as a whole, Losi was really cool(Gil, Matt, and Billy), X ray was always in fashion, and lastley TRF was kick ass!!! But my hats off to Chris Toso for a killer event, just goes to show what the car can do. By the way, I like the beveled chassis Chris...... I will see you all soon.
Raul, you got screwed. Sorry about that buddy.

Raul, you definatly got the shaft. After you told me what happened and I saw how upset you were I felt bad for you. I said it before and I'll say it again, HC is a joke and has been since day one. This was officialy the last time I will ever set foot in ther again. RC Madness is truley "The Place To Race" in CT. I hope to see you at some races after your finished with your break from racing.

Ron
