Tinted Windows stop the sun rays and make things cool inside their cars....It also looks better; it gets people's attention....

If you want smoke color you can get Pactra RC294. I used to use it, but some tracks didn't like it. Said it wasn't Roar legal so I stopped using it. Blahhhhhh

In the UK we made adding paint to windows illegal to make tech easier for the officials.

I do agree it looks cooler though, and it's very petty for rules like that to affect club racing.

The color didn't work out but it had window tint. Our local track is cool with window tint.

ROAR rules 6.1.4 No clear areas except windshields and windows are allowed. Meaning you can tint except windshield.

Then again local club could allow it, depend on them. Concourse events are allowed.
