Off-Road Class Rules

  • Qualifier races are staggered (IFMAR) start. Each driver will race on their own 5 minute clock.

    • Transponders are the responsibility of each racer, if they do not work during a race it will be treated as a DNF (did not finish). This goes for personal transponders, house transponders, and rental transponders. The race director and club officials can't keep up with non-counting trucks and buggies during a race, please don't ask them. Personal transponders are available for rent $5 per race. First race your transponder rental is free. Novice racers that are club members also get free transponder rental.

  • Main event races will be 10 minutes long for 1/10th scale classes and all electric 1/8th scale classes, and 20 minutes long for all nitro 1/8th scale classes. Classes that are mixed nitro and electric will run for a time agreed upon by the racers in that class.

  • All 1/10th scale electric classes may use either 6 or 7 cell NiCd or NiMh batteries, or 2 cell Lithium Polymer batteries. This includes 4WD SCT Mod.

  • All 1/8th scale electric classes are limited to 4 cell Lithium Polymer batteries. No 6s setups are accepted.

  • Unless otherwise noted, classes have no motor limit and no restrictions on hop-up parts or tire compound. All vehicles must conform to ROAR rules for dimensions, weight, and body style for their class. Short course classes are required to run short course style tires and wheels as outlined in the ROAR rulebook page 68 (no stadium truck tires or 1/8th scale tires in the short course classes).

  • A breakout time will be enforced for the Novice class. Laps faster than the breakout time will not count. The breakout time will be announced during the drivers meeting and may change throughout the year based on the current track layout and conditions.

  • Drivers that enter the Novice class will not be allowed to enter additional classes on the same race day. The intent of this rule is to prevent the accidents that occur when the speed and skill difference between racers is large. The race director can move a fast Novice driver to another class during the race day if necessary.
