I love to play around with timing and such, but I also look back with joy on when we all ran SPX's and the speed were almost identical. Those were the days. It was about the car setup and keeping up the speed through the corners.

I don't think this thread is the right place to discuss this, but here is my opinion:

Instead of having a stock (21.5T) and a superstock (17.5T) (these classes are from Denmark), I think it should be stock (17.5T no-boost - ROAR Timing-0) and superstock (17.5T boosted).

This way you don't have to buy a new motor, when switching class. And if you buy a decent ESC to start with (Tekin ) you don't even have to buy a new ESC.
For a while at our track everyone ran Tekin and speed were almost identical. The difference was that if you didn't want to take 30 minutes to learn how a Tekin worked, your speedo setup probably wasn't quite as fast as the next guy.

Nowadays, like I said on the last page, there are a lot of speedos on par with the Tekin and some of us have branched out to other speedos just to be different. They are all on pace.

By the way, ROAR is doing exactly what you said this year. Stock is 17.5 non-boosted, Sportsman is 17.5 boosted, and Expert is open mod.
