New approval listing for ROAR Sportsman class ESCs


The ROAR Executive Committee, including the Electric Section Chairperson and advisory along with its Affiliate Manufacturers, have compiled a listing of electronic speed controllers (ESC) for use in ROAR Sportsman racing programs. Speed controllers eligible for Sportsman class racing must be capable of providing zero timing advance along with disabling advanced motor control functions. When the sportsman profile is enabled, it shall be indicated by a blinking LED while the ESC is armed and in neutral position. ESC manufacturer affiliates have been working with ROAR Section Committees to develop the sportsman ESC definitions and update firmware to meet the class standard. Firmware in the latest advanced speed control products must provide a profile, which allows its use to comply with Sportsman ESC profile requirements. Several affiliates are working on firmware updates which will allow additional ESC’s to be added. Members should contact the manufacturer directly for firmware updates or questions regarding any ESC they wish to have added to the ROAR Sportsman approved ESC listing.
