Hey guys,

Brushless systems are cool I must admit. :thumbsup: But me and my friend have been arguing if they are roar legal for 1/10 offroad trucks or not. I do NOT think they are legal.

Help me out,
Dustin

These are basic rules that ROAR has setup as guidelines for brushless motors. They will be used in ROAR approved demonstration classes that tracks can run this year. In 2005 they will be able to be used in races for ROAR State, Regional and National championships.

Setting up "demo" class rules for a year has been normal for ROAR lately so they can test the concept of the new class and tweak rules before it becomes an "offical" class.

Or should I have said,
Is this another class ROAR is building on.
I've been to a couple of off-road tracks that let the brushless guys run and the brushless systems seemed to be a little under powered. So I was wondering if it will be a seperate class all together.

Thanks Hankster.
I am really concerned that the brushless doesn't take over so to say. I know a lot of people like them, but they seem to be taking all the guess work out of building motors. Wouldn't that really put a dampener on all the motor builders in the country.

I'd say that its more like the motors will get more technical to build and not less. But they will be harder to build as they require a more sophisticated method of building. Yes it will put a damper on the motor builders, time marches on. The cash cow of brushed motors is about to join the ranks of the 8-track. The days of seeing a mod motor for $50+ is nearing the end and with ROAR having started the clock on the change from brushed to brushless.

Will the brushless motors only work with the same manufacture esc?
Do you think that we will still have motor wars with brushless.
I don't believe they will all be created equal. Maybe they will be close though.

Thats the point. Seeing as a replacement brushless in only $80 and may last a year or even several years... Take that savings of time and $ and put it in other things that realy will improve your on track results.

The aim of the ROAR rules to to allow manufacturers to be mixed. Of course if you but a sensored motor you will have to use an ESC that can handle them.
Motors with Sensors can be run with a sensorless esc,,,, The electric boat racers have already played with that.
