was wondering about LUNCHER and luckily saw LAUNCHER in time
UNFORMED
5*(3+1)*(50-2)+7=967 (1 off)
SIMPER
LATEST
4*100+6+3=409
TROOPS
8*100+75/25=803
REREADING 32s wasted lots of time doubting this one but declared it anyway

I was too slow on LAUNCHER / RELAUNCH, alas. Nicely found!

1. CAREFUL
2. UNFORMED
3. 969 = (3*7 - 2)*(50 + 1) [1 off]; after time: 968 = (50 - 5 + 1)*3*7 + 2
4. PROMISED
5. SHUTTLE
6. 409 = 4*100 + 6 + 3
7. TOWARDS
8. 803 = 8*100 + 75/25
9. [no answer] It's not RE-READING (which is hyphenated), but GRENADIER
