I think the touring cars (sedans) would be cool because I've never seen a proxy for these, but I would also enjoy either of these:

 

Sports gt cars from 1972 to 1982

group c sports cars from 1982 to 1992

Sedan cars are very hard to group. We ran a proxy in 2000 for 2 litres and have looked at doinf sedans again but it is hard to get a good range of bodies of similar size. group C is a great class but again bodies are very limited.

Sports Gt from '72 to 82 plenty of bodies but GT again? We may not have great choice simply because of the number of bodies available.

 

We also need an Organiser from a state that has not organised this event yet. It would be great to keep rotating the organising club each year.

I'm really keen to go with some sort of sedan. How about we keep it simple and say the body used:

  1. Must have come stock with a minimum of 2 opening doors and a back seat,
  2. made between 1965 and 1990,and
  3. eligible car must fit within a template provided by the race organiser.

For the template, we use the footprint of a Fly Capri/Lancia or MRRC Celica (whichever is the biggest) which will determine width and length (height is optional to encourage huuuuuge wings). Cars should have a racing livery.

 

The rest of the rules as per DUPR2007.

 

That way there are RTR cars that qualify(eg. Group 5,) plus the modified TransAms with big flares.


cheers!

It seems obvious that a race organiser is needed for the 2008 series,at the risk of being accused of passing the buck,is anyone keen to have a go?

 

BTW,I'm not able as I don't have a track,and I have no one up here who may be interested.

 

So,rather than relying on able souls like Phil or Lenny(who has already indicated he can't do it)is there anyone out there who is willing to put their hand up to be organiser for next years race?

Fly Capri/Lancia or MRRC Celica

 

I would call these "sports Sedans" the Lancia is a GT! Sorry Steve but this is where it starts to get difficult to draw the lines,they all become blurred.

 

I don't mind helping next year with results etc.

Hi Phil,

 

This is what I meant by based on a sedan.

I don't think it would be all that hard and when you look at the variety of cars that have raced here as sports sedans, it makes for a wide degree of choice.

 

Parity is possible by applying the chassis rules, having a dimensions template and maybe a minimum weight.

Why don't we keep it simple....as sedans, (4 door I'm talking here, not sports sedans) seem to be the popular choice for 2008, why don't we go with Aussie V8s?

 

Setup well these cars are great to drive IMO.

 

After all there are heaps of liveries to pick from and the proxy is titled "Down Under". :(

 

As there is only 2 basic chassis types, parity would be simple making the competiton close.

 

Cheers Manic

 

ALSO: You can also get ute bodies for the V8 chassis so that could be a possible option too...

V8 Supercars sound like a great idea. Instead of the type of car in class choosen, it will come down to who can set it up the best.

 

All those in favour say 'I'

Ok so the list of possible body styles is:

  1. V8 Supercars
  2. Sports sedans 1965 to 1990
  3. LMP
  4. Slot.it Group C
  5. Modern Sedans (DTM, V8s, BTCC, rally cars)
  6. Group C sports cars from 1982 to 1992 (no Slot.it)
  7. Post 2000 Le Mans Series
  8. Sports gt cars from 1972 to 1982

Shall we put it to a vote?

V8 Supercars
:(

 

great to drive :blink:

 

One of the worst chassis Scalex has made of late. IMO The motor is too high in the chassis. They are just not much fun to drive!

 

Sorry Steve thought you meant the Fly Betta!

im a little confused. What is the difference between - Sports sedans 65-90 & Sports gt cars 72-82? I think I need to clarify this before I cast my vote


Thanks

Sports Sedans This might give you an idea. Basically any sedan 2 or 4 door that you could stuff a mid mounted V8, wing and flared guards.1965 to 1990 makes for a wide array of available bodies.

 

I'm not 100% but Sports GT cars 72-82 would also qualify in the broader group but would be more like yer Porsche, etc..


cheers!
