I can't be the only person who feels this way. I'm getting sick of hearing grown men whine about people not following every ROAR rule at local track and club races. I was at a race with my bone stock E-Revo, and entered in the truggy class, and came in 3rd of 6. But people had to complain that it wasn't a truggy but a monster truck. Well had there been an MT class, I would've entered and probably won, and everyone with an E-Maxx or E-Savage would've said it's more of a truggy. IT'S A HOBBY PEOPLE! First place took home a $10 gift certificate, not a $10,000 check! I understand the position at big races, but not at the club level. My same argument applies to SC classes. Is there really a need to have separate classes for Slash's and all other SCs (i.e. SC10s, Strikes, Blitz's...)? If they're stock, what does it matter? Someone with a Slash will whine that the Blitz is a better truck. THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A BLITZ! (Or strike or sc10...not saying Slashs aren't good, just making a point.) For Christ's sake, I don't tell people that they can't race their XXX4, SBV2, ZX-5, or D4 against my B44. Or a XXXT or E-Firestorm against a T4. But everybody gets their panties in a bunch over SC. I am also getting tired of seeing seasoned racers getting pissed at novice newcomers for getting in their way on the track. This is supposed to be fun. The more the merrier, so don't drive newcomers away. They're the future of the hobby. YES HOBBY, NOT SPORT! It has been several months since I personally last raced, due to my growing family, a new house, and work. But I still enjoy playing when I can. And honestly, I don't know if I'll really ever get back into racing unless people settle down, start having fun, and stop thinking they're Brian Kinwald. I spend good money in this hobby, as all of you do, and I want to get my money's worth. I'd rather spend $5 to practice all day for 8 hours and run 10 battery packs and all the cars I want than pay $10-15 (per class), and run 3 5-minute heats and a main, providing my car doesn't break and I miss a race or two. And then there are the local "Pros" who think they shouldn't have to marshall because they have to race another class soon, or have to set up their cars, or whatever other excuse they may have. I miss the days when a bunch of friends could get together and all play with whatever they had, and nobody said it was unfair, or it didn't follow ROAR rules. Anyway, I'm done, and that felt good to get out! Please let me know what you think. And for God's sake, go have fun!
