Default Sunday March 5th Reunion

Started a new Thread...
What time do you usually open up and start?

So, it looks:
Can Am, Fia Gt1, Group c and either carrera and scalextric modern gt (stock only changing tires and the guide). Jim's looks like he has his line up almost set

What are the specs for the first 3 classes?

In case anyone has forgotten:


FIA Group C / IMSA GTP

Based on cars that ran at LeMans and other World Endurance Championship and IMSA races between 1982 and 1993


Baseline Regulations - Applies to all Groups and Sanctioned Events
Version 1.0 – January 2015


1. No Magnets are allowed

2. Weight may be added inside the chassis

3. Chassis /body may be sanded to allow for body float

4. Only one guide per car

5. Only hard bodies are allowed – plastic, fiberglass, resin or 3D. No Vac-formed bodies

6. Where prototype car has them- front and rear window glass are required

7. Prototypical wheels are required (molded plastic, inserts on machined aluminum wheels)
These wheels should be of scale size, width, height and design type. Inserts must be on cars at start of each race.

8. Rubber or urethane tires only, unless the rules call for a spec tire. (no silicones) All tires must be commercially available to all competitors. Tires may be trued and glued except in Classes requiring ‘hand out’ tires.

9. For closed-wheel Classes, wheels and tires may not be visible when viewed from above.

10. Hard plastic or resin interior required. No vacuform interiors or flat trays. (except where motor installation in stock position does not allow for depth (i.e. Monogram Ferrari 250P) Interiors must cover all of the car's inner workings - gears, motor, etc. at a minimum, will include 3 dimensional driver figure with head, shoulders, arms and steering wheel.




Group C / IMSA GTP Specific Rules:

- Group C is a ‘Stock’ Group

‘Stock’ refers to ready-to-run cars produced by Slot.it

Stock body and chassis that came with the body must be used.

Changes to gears, axles and wheels are allowed – but prototype inserts and sizes must be maintained.

Motor configuration must be in-line.

Guide may be changed but must retain stock position.


“Stock’ bodies from other manufacturers may be used with Slot.it chassis (i.e. SRC Lola T-600). Chassis modifications to allowing fitting of other ‘stock’ or ‘customized’ bodies are allowed within framework of the rules. (i.e. 1990+ Porsche 962’s)

New ‘Evo’ chassis may be used in place of original –but motor configuration must be in-line

Motors are limited to Slot.it Orange end-bell, white end-bell or Turqouise end-bell and in no case may exceed 21,500 rpm. Suspect motors may be tested at Tech.

If wheels are changed, relevant prototype inserts must be used. No ‘low-rider’ wheel –tire combinations.

Cars must retain all ‘parts’ including wings and other appendages, as per prototype, at the start of each heat. If a car loses any items during a heat, it can continue without penalty, but must be repaired prior to the start of the next heat.

Any questions about these regulations should be directed to the SCI NCSRA section for clarification.

Thought we might want to get these out there so that everyone knows the 'Class'. I can post the eligible body types too, if you need...

NCSRA FIA GT1 & BPR (1990’s) Class

Based on cars that ran at LeMans, FIA GT Championship and BPR Series between 1993 and 1999.

Baseline Regulations - Applies to all Groups and Sanctioned Events
Version 1.0 – January 2015

11. All Classes of cars will fall into 1 of 3 ‘Groups” that have additional rules and specific regulations. These Groups are: Stock, Modified and Builders. Please see details for each of these before prepping a car for any ‘Class’.



FIA GT1 is a MODIFIED Group:
-
Ready to Run cars.
Stock body and chassis that came with the body must be used.
Changes to gears, wheels and tires allowed.
Motor type and configuration may be changed.
Guide may be changed but must retain stock position.
Motor list may be provided, including a limited number of readily available stock or near-stock choices based on the class being run.



FIA GT1 Specific Rules:

‘Stock’ bodies and ‘Stock’ chassis may switched (i.e. Ninco Mercedes body on Slot.it McLaren Chassis)

Motors are limited to a 22,000 RPM limit and must be used in an ‘in-line’ configuration. (Even if car comes in another configuration as ‘stock’, i.e. Slot.it Porsche 911GT1 LM and newest McLaren.)

If wheels are changed, inserts as per the prototype must be used. No ‘low-rider’ wheel –tire combinations.

Default I'd like to see a Globe powered car....

....haven't seen one since 1967!
Or maybe there's a new Globe...?
The old ones were an inch in diameter & weighed as much as a Slot.It car (approximately...) - but they were fast.

OK, I am overdue to get my hair colored again......

I'll look up the Can Am rules -but as an outline, it is s "Builders Class" meaning that motor type, config and RPM are open - usual rules relating to prototypes apply.

Default Bomb throw...

Ayeeeee, wait a minute...

GT1 cars without specified motor and alignment -- ???

First, that means only two competitive cars in 'stock' form -- Mr SlotCar McLaren (bet that's what Jim's running!!) or a Porsche 911GT LM with the anglewinder --which we disallowed because it made all the other GT1's obsolete !!! And the Mr Slotcar is even faster---

Bad ruling - it makes everyone have to upgrade to even be in the race (not that most of us are, anyway--) and last, but not least, GT1 cars, despite being younger, are not supposed to be faster than Group C cars---

Heh, heh --not that I'll be there anyway --jes' sayin'

Steve

I'm planning on running a SlotIt McLaren. All the new McLarens come with the angle winder setup like the Porsche.
