Garry

Hope you can make the race. The rules are from the Auslot 500 race post.

Vince



Rules will be:

Stock Scalextric Trans Ams with 2mm Sport button magnets or 2mm Ninco button magnets. Both are the same. Do not confuse the Ninco magnet with their thicker version that comes in most of their cars. The road versions are OK to race as are repaints and versions using the body from the Scalextric Trans Am model kits.

No lowering bodies onto chassis.

No filing down sides of chassis or body for float.

We have not decided on having body screws backed off. For those that don't know this allows the body to soak up bumps and vibrations in the track surface as well as letting the body tilt through corners slightly. It is a racing trick but can lead to screws falling out and shorting the track if the screw is not tight in the thread. We did try this last night and there is a small performance gain to be had.

No pumping guards.

Standard tyres and wheels.

Guides can be narrowed as this is a problem with the early Trans Ams when running on Ninco track.

No weight can be added and no lightening of any part of the car.

The cars will be scruitineered.

Bumpers can be removed as they will probably be broken off otherwise. The rear bumper on the Camaro is especially vulnerable.

Thanks Jamie and Billy. As we will only require the car we are racing plus a couple of small tools to work on the car it would be appreciated if no tool boxes are bought into the shop.

Next round then, Bad Billy. You'll have an advantage because having seen some of these characters drive at the practice, your car will be mint and ours will be "Parramatta Road specials".
