Rule Change for 10th scale buggy wheel construction

2.4"/60mm wheels will now be permitted for the remainder of the 2015 INS Season.  ROAR has updated their rulebook as follows...

ROAR is introducing a rules change with immediate effect that results in 2 different wheel configurations being available as options for manufacturers and competitors: 
- the existing 2.2" nominal wheels  
- the newer 2.4" or 60mm nominal wheels 

The new rules do not include dimensions compatible with vintage style wheels as they are generally not used in ROAR sanctioned competition.  

Dimensions for the traditional 2.2" wheel will be: 
- Mounting Bead Diameter - 2.20 inch (55.88mm) +/-.013 inch (.30mm) 
- Maximum Overall Diameter - 2.42 inch (61.468 mm) 
- Width - 1.513 inch (38.43mm) maximum 

Dimensions for the newer wheel style will be: 
- Mounting Bead Diameter - 2.380 - 2.427 inch (60.45 - 61.65 mm) 
- Maximum Overall Diameter - 2.571 inch (65.3 mm) 
- Width - 1.513 inch (38.43mm) maximum

Schedule Update - Spring 2015

So after the fun of this past weekends last minute change we would like to go over the rest of the season's schedule. Round 3 was originally going to be Shiverville. Ken asked if he could switch dates with a track from the Fall Session. He didn't feel his track would be Super Cup ready in time. The new Beachline Raceway was set to be Round 3 this season but due to the risk of rain and the long drive for most we decided (a little late) to swap Round 2 and 3. Round 3 will be hosted by Coral Springs. However, they have requested to not have the event held on Easter weekend. The Force Series has their race the following weekend so we have moved Race 3 to March 28. If March 28 weather has a bad outlook then the original date of April 4th will be the make-up date for Race 3.

Thanks for the continued support of the series... Let's Race!

​Round 3: Coral Springs - March 28, 2015
Round 4: FZRC - May 9, 2015


2015 Super Cup Championship Series – Spring Round 1

Valentines Day weekend kicked off the 2015 Super Cup Season at 301 Raceway in Wildwood FL. Friday night we celebrated the 2014 season with another great banquet, handing out over 215 awards and a pile of prizes from our amazing sponsors. On Saturday, Round 1 kicked off with 211 entries that would fill the indoor facility to near capacity. Racers enjoyed the spacious tables and comfortable area inside away from the morning cold winds. Track was new to many racers with a hybrid surface consisting of a clay base and wooden carpeted jumps. Tires were tricky to find as grip increased with every passing hour on Friday’s practice. By Saturday morning racers came prepared with tires in hand that had been glued the night before. Qualifying would start with a delay as technology played its part of glitches and system bugs. Tech support would work hard as the racers patiently waited for quals to begin. Once quals began racers were ready and laid down crazy fast laps with times dropping heat after heat.

to the body-lines and cut-outs intended for modification. Small circle cut-outs are allowed at the base of the windshield
regardless per the ROAR Nationals. No complete windshield, side window or bed cutouts. Modified class is intended
for the more experienced driver and is open to all manufacturer SCT trucks. In the SCT 4x4 class the motor is open,
however, the battery is restricted to 2s Lipo as per the ROAR rules.

With an ever increasing number of veteran racers and fathers in attendance, an over 40 2wd Open class has been added.

Technical Inspection

The Super Cup Competition committee has stepped up with a much more stringent technical inspection for ALL classes. Please be prepared to have the following aspects inspected prior to each qualifier and main event. There will be a ROAR rule observed pre-race technical inspection table that everyone must clear prior to the qualifier and main.
Post-race tech is available in the event of a protest.  These rules are in place to ensure fairness of racing in the stock class; not to be a hindrance. This will also get everyone prepared for the stringent ROAR tech process that will take place for anyone running at this year’s ROAR Off-road Nationals hosted by SCRC in Florida.

 Pre-race inspection –

· Weight
· Battery voltage
· Speed control, blinky mode inspection
· 17.5 motor

 Post-race inspection – protest instituted

· Weight
· Stator resistance
· Motor tear down

Weather

Super Cup racing is typically held on Saturday. An effort will always be made to run the event on that single day. If one
complete round is completed it is an official race and points will be tabulated based on position. If it is impossible to race
on a Saturday, Sunday will be used as the make-up day. If a race is unsuccessful on Sunday than a make-up race will
be run at a date to be determined. Drivers will be given the option of a refund or to hold their entry for the future event.
