I Repeat. WOW.
With 20 year I've been racing, Many of the last 10 years as a Race Director for many Regional, Nationals, and Ifmar World Events. R.O.A.R., Norrca,Ifmar and Arcor all have their own Rules.
The one thing I know is every race has it's own problems that do come up whether it minor or major. Track conditions change, Weather problems, Scoring problems. Some of these can be can be resolved by being more prepared or have help that has done large races before.
I have use almost all the scoreing software out there today. Let me tell you it all better than 10 people with a clipboard and a stopwatch.
All software has it own Quirks. Many of them are being driven by the driver and the media wanting more and more racing info. (ie) Practice lap times, Who turn the fastest lap and when, What race is up, When will the Mains be run. The best one I got one day was "Can the Computer tell me when to start charging my batteries". With that it is still a race, all driver are there to win for themselfs and their sponcers.

I look at this way. If you see someone in trouble with their car at a race most of us will try to help him or she out. If a track is have a bad time at a race and I can try and help them out I do.
I go to have a good time, Try to win, and be with my friends.

Dawn your welcome

Carl thanks on the info see that's the things people jump to conclusion on

Tres made it south racing dirt offroad this weekend at the DST and yes it was a 1000 mile drive one way that I could of done without.

ddesros2 only doomed due to lack of planning it's all in the planning

Brian I'll take anything I can get. it cost me $230 entree (joined roar... and got my car yesterday unlike my norrca card that took three months. thank your crew for the speedy return Dawn) $650 split on the room and van rental and at $2 a gallon and 20mph that's about $200 split on the gas also and food for a big boy for a week which was probably another $150 so all told I spent $775 and that didn't include parts.

scarecrow that's the game croy did it the best so far. my hats off to him.

Charlie that ain't no lie if this was 8 years ago you wouldn't get this in Revup


TL_XXX someone took video and said they were making a DVD of it to sell. I'll see what I can find about it.

WC- What's Up Man!! Long time no chat.

That's the question of the month. We don't have an estimated time, release, price, partnumber, or any official specs right now.

It will run both Brushless and Brushed motors, that is ALL the information we're making available right now.
