Your math looks better than mine but I think it will be two minutes between each round.
I think you are forgetting there are 8 heats right now that are 8 minutes instead of 5. If you go on 2 minutes between heats it equals 3.8 hours.

But either way it shouldnt be a problem to run 2 heats a day with the entries as they are.

Default # of heats

I agree with filling the number of heats already required, but feel that ROAR should hang tough on not allowing an absurd number of heats, thus creating an absurdly long day

See, this just proves my point. Never do work before you have to. Being lazy is the way to go.

ROAR rule book says 1418g minimum weight for foam. That is 49.807 ounces. So what is the actual weight? R.W.


This is off a web site for coversions. Go here & plug it in:

I'll be running all of my stuff the same as I did in club races. If it doesn't meet the requirements then I'll deal with it at the track. Rules will probably change at midnight the day of practice anyways...

-About the question on wheel dots from a few pages ago here is the ROAR rule:

7.2.2 Stick-on wheel disks are not allowed. Unless other means are authorized by the Race Director, the disks must be secured to the wheel by the axle nut or screws.

So I guess the white TRC wheel covers would be illegal then?


-Also under the T2 specs is the following rule for width with and without body:

With body Maximum 195mm Width
(see Note 1) Without body Maximum 190 mm

Does this mean there are two boxes?

I measured pretty much all the most popular bodies and at some point (mostly in front of the front wheel openings and along the sides before the rear wheel openings) they are 195-200mm and sometimes more.


-While I was looking in the rule book, I found this rule which I thought was most interesting:

6.2.1 Bumpers are not required in all classes, but when used, they must be shock absorbing and non-metallic, with no sharp edges. For safety, rigid bumpers, such as fiberglass and composites, are not permitted.

That rule basically means all Oval cars are illegal and some on-road 12th scales as well.

The Tech Tools ROAR provided measures both with the same box. It really is a neat piece of engineering.

At this point I would have to agree.
