Our drivers stand has an area for wheelchairs, however you will need help getting there as we don't have a ramp.

Seems weird to have a spot for wheelchairs but no ramp. If I was going I would also be willing to help this gentlemen as most racers I know would also. Good luck with the race!

Not necessarily true. ROAR has a new list. The website just hasnt been updated is what I was told last night. It may be updated by the Nats it may not be but ROAR will have the latest approved list with them at the race.

All approvals are based on their submission date also. Not the actual approved date. So anything on that list will be legal for the Nationals in all classes.

It could be due to the length of ramp required. I know one of the rules is that you need to have a foot for every inch. Meaning if the platform is 30 inches off the ground you need a 30 foot ramp so it doesn't have to steep of a slope.

what kind if answer is that? If roar has a new list it should be posted. Super secret lists of what is legal to run in less the 2 weeks is BS. If someone needs to buy different equipment they need to know now.


With that said. If, IF ROAR has not posted the list they need to get off their tail and post it.

EXCOMM that's on you to make it right.

Thats what I was told last night...Simple as that. I agree that the list should be updated as soon as products pass the test and EXCOM votes them in....but the voting seems to take forever for what ever reason. The people doing the testing get it done in a very speedy time frame.

The ROAR President posted on the 10th that the Technical director was working on getting the list updated and posted this week. So hopefully it gets done ASAP.

5) Went dumpster diving for the ring...No luck!
6) Don't remember doing very well in my races.
7) Scheduled flight out was cancelled.
8) Rescheduled flight out was cancelled.
9) Actually got on another flight as a standby; but, was taken off the plane when a ticketed passenger arrived before takeoff. Thought I was safe when the plane door was closed; but, they opened it back up to let him on...and me off.
10) Unfortunately, my luggage went on the plane without me. I had literally everything packed.
11) Stayed overnight at an airport hotel. Room next to mine was obviously being used by a "working girl".
12) Wife was not very happy when I told her about losing the ring.

Yet, I had a wonderful time with my buds that week at the track! LOL

The ROAR approved non-timing list does not show the date that it was approved. How can you have a 14 day approval restraint and not show the date of approval on the list?
The battery list does.

This whole delayed/super secret approval list is complete BS. So if it doesn't get uploaded to the website (which shouldn't be rocket science requiring a committee...) and they bring it to the race instead... No one knows if their HW 3.1 1S, Orca VXXs, Tekin RSXs are approved until they get there? So why would you even risk it?

With no proof any of the above are approved for the race, most people are already scrambling to find alternatives or buying other ESCs. A new list is pointless if no one can see it.
