Until ROAR is able to complete spot checks on many of the more popular spec motors currently on the market and establish some new approval guidelines, new approvals will be postponed. ROAR will move as quickly as possible to establish new approval standards so approvals can resume for new motors, but this is superseded by its responsibility to ensure fair and relatively equal competition in the spec classes. The specifications will be better refined to ensure this outcome. As soon as the testing is complete and the revised specifications are better defined, ROAR will publish the new specs on the ROAR website, Facebook page and in the 2012 Rulebook, which will be finalized when the motor specs are complete.
