    Wheels, tires, gears, axles, guides, braids, wires, bearings, and fasteners may be modified or replaced by any manufacturer's parts.
    LMP.c) Motors are open. Motors which trip overload protectors, slow other cars on the track, or cause other problems due to excessive current draw, will be excluded from racing.

    GT Class Car Rules:
    GT.a) Body must be a two door, closed cockpit car as raced in any GT series during the years 2006-2009, including ACO/LMS, ALMS, FIA GT (1, 2 & 3), Rolex Grand Am (GT Only), Japanese Super GT Series, ADAC GT Masters, GT Open Series, Belgian GT and FFSA GT Series.

    Wheels, tires, gears, axles, guides, braids, wires, bearings, and fasteners may be modified or replaced by any manufacturer's parts.

    GT.c) Motors are open. (Same rules as LMP)

    General Car Rules (Apply to all classes):
    G.a) Injection molded or resin bodies and vacuum formed but no blow molded bodies, of 1/43d scale.

    G.b) Tires must touch the track and may not project beyond body when car is at rest on level track viewed from directly above. (GT & LMP)

    G.c) Guide may not project beyond body when aligned for straight, viewed from directly above.

    G.d) All wheel drive, and multiple motors, may be used only if the actual car used them.

    G.e) Cars must have sufficient ground clearance to permit free running without contacting track. Cars which drag on track will be excluded.

    G.f) Clear window material must be used where the real car has clear material.

    G.g) Racing numbers must be visible in three places on body. Bodies may be painted in fantasy or realistic liveries.

    G.h) Headlights and tail lights are required, except F1 of course, but are not required to actually illuminate. (May be painted in realistic manner where they appear on 1:1 car.)

    G.i) Rear wing must be in place if actual car was raced with wing, in the class in which it is entered.

    G.j) Interior must include, at minimum a 1/43d driver on plate or shelf in the proper position for the car. Rear shelf is required under rear window, if car has rear window. No mechanical components can be visible. If vac-formed, must be of reasonable detail and proportion. Paper drivers are not permitted.

    G.k) Tires may be of any material, but must be black. Clear finish may be applied to front tire tread area. No chemical treatment (such as oil soaking) is permitted.

    G.l) Entrant's name, and body screw adjustment information, should be written on underside of chassis in paint or silver Sharpie.

    G.m) Magnetic downforce will be checked by table provided by JXR, and may not exceed 30 points.
    The allowed magnets:
    Ranch Design barrel mag - 7 points
    Artin standard half size - 9 points
    Artin standard full size - 13 points
    SCX Compact - 20 points
    Carrera Go!!! - 24 points
    Deegan HH Anti-Gravity - 29 points (Good pick for this Proxy!)

    5mm x 5mm x 0.9mm neo-mag (part # M0517) - 35g (7 points)
    Here's the link for SuperMagnetMan:
    The number of magnets you can use will be based on the points assigned to each magnet. More magnets will be added to the list later.

    G.n) Carbon fiber is not permitted in vehicle construction.

    Track must be a road course, have dynamic braking and be capable of running at least 14 volts with 3 amps per running lane. Race can be run at 14-16 volt at track managers discretion.
    Wood tracks must have braid, or equivalent, to allow for magnetic pull equal to plastic track.
    Tracks must have adequate safety fencing to prevent excessive car damage.

    Each entry will be $3.50 per car for each race (6) for US, $4.50 for Canada, $6.50 for Euro entries. No more than 1 car entry per class per person (total of 3 cars, i.e. 1 GT, 1 LMP and 1 F1). Sign Up by PM to Cjent!

    Dynamic Breaking, does this mean the track must be wired for breaks through the controllers?


    • #3
      Good idea to combine classes and add F1's
      I'm in to race.


      • #4
        Brakes through contollers, Barfly, is correct.
        The Sanctioning Body, Team HPRA, will require picture proof of wiring from track owners.

          Magnabraid does not give the magnetic effect of plastic track.
          Heck, even if you add magnetic paint to the magnabraid it still doesn't have the same magnetic effect.
          Even if you add magnetic filings to the magnetic paint, it still lacks the same pull as plastic.

          But then again do all brands of 1/43 track provide the same amount of magnetic down force?

          I highly doubt it!

                Barfly Racing is definitely in !

                KSC Speedway would like to donate to the prize pool a gift certificate for a new
                Ranch Design Resin Cast Ferrari F430. These are of particular quality and mount very
                easily to a SCX Compact Tuner chassis.

                  From what I can tell, that looks really good!
                  Just kidding Joe, and thanks for the donation of one for a prize.
                  Are you running that one?
                  That body is terrifc. I got 2 more for HPRA members. They can't wait to build them.
