Regulations - Scalextric Supercars

Recommended Posts

So can you run Slotit foam tyres?

Also, can the wheels stick outside the guards?

 

Hi Cam

Rubber Tyres only

I think wheels and tyres will have to be inside the body because you can lower the body(but will check)

 

What does a speed checker look like?

Hi Cam,

 

Yes Captain is correct, for the Scalextric Supercar Class, you are only allowed to run Slot.it, MJK or Scalextric Rubber Tyres. No Sponge Tyres allowed for this class.

Regarding the wheels sticking outside the guard, yes that is allowed. please refer to the max spur dimensions allowed though. 60mm front, 62mm rear.

 

To give everyone a heads up, most of the locals are running MJK Wheels and Tyres. They are also flaring or cutting the guards away to fit the wheels in, especially the wider ones. The wheels might stick outside the guard a little but this is ok as stated above.

 

The rules have been updated above with this information added.

 

Cheers,

 

Brooksy

The speed checker are not the most reliable way of checking motor output.

We tested one for some time a few years ago.

Found that the results depended on how much load was put on the car to hold it on the tester, tyre diameter and grip levels gave variations.

All our tests we done using Scalex V8 's with only weight added and tyres glued and truer.

18 cars were tested and only two gave comparable results on the speed checker to the results that we obtained by removing the motors and testing with an optical tach.

Sure the speed checker might not be the most reliable way of checking motor output, but it gives you a fair indication on who is or isn't complying with the rules. Last year we compared everyone's Scalextric Supercars, with the average being 25 kph. As the cars vary on the speed checker (incl. load and tyre dimmeter) we factored in a +/- 10% variation, giving us a max limit of 27kph. the following rule is in place to stop those who either tamper with their motor or put a faster RPM motor in. They usually rev out at 32kph or more, so you know who's doing a dodgy. It's always been a local rule, so the guys know not to go over the limit.

Just to clarify on the rules above, The Motor for the Scalextric Supercars must be an "Unmodified Scalextric 18,000RPM Mabuchi Motor" Only.

 

I have noticed some racers are either using, or have purchased in the hope of running the Slot.it V12/3 Mabuchi Style Universal Motor (Product Code SIMX12-1). This is NOT Allowed. You will NOT pass tech/scrutineering. It is up to you to ensure that your car comply with the rules above. We will be checking.

 

Cheers,
