Default Does ROAR require body pins?

Good day everyone, sort of an odd or random question, does ROAR require body pins/clips? I'm looking to do a national race next year in 1/10th 4wd 13.5 and was getting my Buggy ready and "legal" but couldn't find my answer. I would prefer to stick with hd velcro but if I need pins I would like to know. Thanks for your time in advance.

Great Question, I have never been Harassed when I used Velcro only on my RB5 Vega or when I race 1:8 E-Buggy. The only thing in the ROAR Rule book is stated No Rubber Bands, Page 31 I think.

Yea same rule I read as well. I guess I will just bring 2 bodies with me, one with pins and one with velcro. I also surfed the net for photos of ROAR events and pro drivers and cars to see if they were running pins, almost all of them had pins, which I thought was interesting. Anyone else know or have experience?

Personally if it was me, I would use both as body clips won't weight that much and having the added benefit of knowing you won't lose the body in a accident would be huge in a big race

Seeing as the B6 series of cars didnt use body pins and relied upon velcro along the chassis rails....I think you'll be fine. I know its ROAR and they like to have rules that are ridiculous and outdated but even this is stretching it.

List them. List all the bad rules.

Just making complaints like this changes nothing.

We could start with the fact they have rules for CONCOURSE. literally the only fun part of racing some weekends....

How is simply having some rules for concourse an example of a bad rule? If there were no rules at all for concourse then people would put down highly detailed scale models instead of their running car (because there's no rule preventing it).
