hi,

 

for the slot it rear tyres/rims ruling, we are to use 'foam tyres', but from what i am told, the foam tyre/rims have a lip on them.

 

the ruling states 'orig rims only'. the orig rims do not have a lip to enable foam tyres. am i misreading something?

 

sorry for dumb question

orig rims and foam tyres, so its clear that the foam tyres (having never seen them)are made for the original rims, and not ones with special lips, which i was told.

 

ok all clear.

last question.

 

'all body screws to be used'

 

what about pod screws? all have to be used, or can any be left unused? loose screws fall out so i prefer to delete them altogether.

 

absolute last question. no more after this.

and one more, the rule say : 2.Adding weight to any part of the chassis is allowed.

usually this is linked to another comment: if place under the chassis, the weight should be cover by tape.

Group C slot-it is inline,4 screws hold the pod in 4 screws must be in.

Common sense ,glue and tape .

Hi Shane I have been asked by a number of our club members about the Group 5 Sideways class. As you are aware our club rules at TBird’s allow the motor pod to be replaced with the Slot.it pod for club racing. When the pod is changes you need to break off two plastic tabs to make room for the Slot.it pod.

 

Are you allowed to run the chassis in the Nationals with these tabs removed and the original pod reinstalled? Or would you be required/allowed to re glue these tabs back in place?

 

As I understand it spare chassis are not currently available for these cars locally.

 

Clarification would be greatly appreciated.

This will be ok as many other people would be in the same boat,plus the little tabs is not a tuning gain if in or out. Everything else must be to the rules as is.

Guys please note that due to the fox2 motor know longer being produced the replacement motor for all classes running the fox2 will now be the new fox 4.

 

I'll make the changes in the class rules. So plenty of time and plenty of notice for the change.

Hey Shane.. will the old Fox motor still be legal?

 

Kim the old fox motor will not be used at all.

 

All plafit classes will run only with the new fox 4.

 

My decision is to run one or the other and now the availability of the fox 2 you can't buy I've chosen to go the new fox 4.

I'm hoping to come over for this, depending on a few things finances etc but anyway I'm starting to look at building some cars and I have a few SCX NASCAR's and I just wondered how you identify the motor on these things? They are built in a plastic pod and I can't read the writing on the bottom etc.

 

I also have one NASCAR that has a motor that says RX - 4H so I think that is a pro NASCAR yeah and ineligible?

 

Thanks in advance
