ROAR has released two sets of rule changes the week of the ROAR 1/10th scale off-road nationals regarding battery voltage and tire preparation.

Clarification on tire grinding for Offroad 10th Scale Dirt Nationals

In keeping with the precedent set at previous 10th scale dirt offroad Nationals and common practice at the host track; ROAR will adopt the following policy for the 2022 Electric Offroad 10th Scale Dirt Nationals at SDRC.

Racers in all classes will be permitted to sand or grind the tread of the tire. All sanding / grinding must be done outside the building or in any area designated by the host track.

For racers using handout tires, no other modifications will be permitted other than the addition of vent holes and at least a “ghost outline” of the original tire tread must be visible. On handout tires, tire identification information on the sidewall must not be modified, altered or removed. Racers in classes using handout tires may use their own inserts. Racers are limited to 4 sets of handout tires.

ROAR will implement a new rule for situations where a racer presents a vehicle for pre-race technical inspection and the battery voltage exceeds the allowable 4.20 volts per cell.

This rule will take effect immediately and be used at the 2022 Electric Offroad 10th Scale Dirt Nationals.

The new rule reads:

Racers who present vehicles at pre-race technical inspection with a battery voltage up to 0.02v per cell over the maximum voltage listed in 8.3.2.5.2 will be given one opportunity to reduce the voltage or to replace the battery with one within the voltage limits. Racers must leave the inspection area and rejoin the inspection line while replacing batteries or reducing voltage. In no case will the start of a race be delayed due to a racer using this provision. Racers who present vehicles at pre-race technical inspection with a battery voltage greater than 0.02v per cell over the maximum voltage listed in 8.3.2.5.2 will be disqualified from that round of racing. Racers who use the option of reducing voltage or replacing the battery and fail on their second attempt will be disqualified from that round of racing.
