After which you of course have your 50+ treads here on RC Tech saying how stupid the rules are and how much ROAR sucks.

Personally I don't think the president should be involved with rules making. There should be a separate committee working on that. The president's job should be, like you said, to try and grow the hobby.

Oh, and the basher to racer index is more like 100 to 1.
I agree with this.

Other than addressing new developments in the class that may conflict with existing rules, I think ROAR's time is better spent addressing and refining the developing categories, especially those that will attract newcomers.

I agree with your sentiment about the rules - I much prefer to just show up and race without having to put your car through a gauntlet of rigs and gigs. Nobody enjoys that part of racing, especially at the Nationals, but were all suddenly much more fond of the rules when someone else is breaking them. ;o)
I know we need rules, but I dont like to see therules constantly being messed with, I know that in other classes is more complicated, though. I dont mind teching my car either, I think thats part of any motorsport.
