Still, I understand that it a great improvement from what ROAR had before.

The ROAR On Road committee is working on a more simplified version for clubs.

Forget about that, what about my unanswered weight question

Dang that was harsh ...I'm so proud of you

...on the ROAR rules thread, I had posted a couple months ago asking why the weight diff between TC rubber and TC foam is aprox 100 grams, yet if I weigh a set of rubber tires and a set of foam tires they are 50 grams apart i.e. that is why in rubber I have to add weight, but in foam I am overweight without adding weight 1.

My smart aleck answer...Quit eating the foams and YOU won't be overweight. LOL

That IS a good question for ROAR though.

I've never attended a ROAR race that measured the width of the tire/rim. Even the previous races that used foam tires never checked that.
