Default 200mm Outlaw Car/Class

With new Companies coming out with new cars, Serpent 720, Kyosho RRR Evo, Mugen MTX4, Team Magic G4S.
And everyone selling their prior cars for a really low value. Why not keep those cars and convert them to a 200mm Outlaw Class. After watching those cars at the Nats at Crystal Park Raceway they looked really good. I see racers are wanting to go fast, so why not strap on a .12 5 port and turbo pipe, Lola Body and your ready to go. The other benefit is the same tires are used with your touring car works and some parts are still able to work with your new car. From a budget stand point that's cheaper than buying a 1/8th scale car. And I would like to see this class grow. You can run in the On-Road Nats in 1/10th open or Sedan Nats 200mm Outlaw classes.

In the past, the Outlaw class was run at the 1/8th nats alongside the 235 cars. I am not sure when this changed. I may even be completely wrong. It is cool to have it at the 200mm nats though.

i ran 235 last year and switched to 1/8th this year. what i have noticed is like you say the 235's handle better and they don't break as easily. one big difference is the big block 15's last much longer than the 21's. i ran a murnan modified rb15 for half the season and when i sold it it still had great pinch and was as fast as when i first put it in the car.

I have a question about the Outlaw 1/10th scale class. Do you only run Outlaw .12 5-Port engines or can you run a .15 engine in the Outlaw class as well?

If you are running a 200mm outlaw, you run a 5 port .12 and the .15 engines are for 235mm.

I beleive that a small block .18 would be legal in a 235mm car.

Joe Buddy like Scott said you have to keep up and maybe read the Rev-UP.

Seriously ,Do you read the Rev-up that is on line now? I want to encourage everyone to read it and you don't have to be a member of Roar to get it,just go to the Roar site. Dawn puts a lot of time into the publication and does a fine job. They have an option to receive an e-mail notification when it is published.
