All four wheels must touch the track and roll.
No lubricants, oil or otherwise outside the car. This includes

5 slowest lap times will be eliminated from each heat and an average taken of the top 40 lap times.
Lowest average time wins.

#2 Voting Poll
Prior to the race, a thread will be started on HRW, SCXWW and SCI where participants will be asked to post pictures and descriptions of their builds. The more forums you use the more votes you can get.
Also prior to the race a poll will be conducted on all three forums for both builders and spectators participation.

In the polls voters will be asked to cast their vote on building techniques, originality and the cars overall appearance. Votes will be tallied up from all three forums for one total score for each entry.
To avoid prolonged outcomes
ties in the voting polls will be resolved by the KSC Speedway track manager

sponsors to earn support credits.

Hey Guys, just wanted to stop in and say hi and let you know we are still in the works for the proxy in January! I'll be around more later in the year to keep the proxy updated. Summer has kept me rather busy, I know you all can understand that

Thank you.
Joe.

Joe,
Keep Up The Good Work!
I know CART, been to INDY and F1 and you are my Hero! Any of those guys on any Team would say the same, they just won't post it.
This is a difficult scale.
