    Up to 2 entries per participant.
    No more than two cars regardless of category
    .

    CATEGORY #1 TRADITIONAL SLOT CAR
    CHASSIS:
    To be considered scratch built, a chassis must have been constructed by the builder without the use of any commercial parts except
    1. (1) Motor
    2. Gears
    3. Axles / Bushings
    4. Wheels / Tires
    5. Guide / Braids / Wires

    Permitted:

    Machine cut chassis.
    Any type of guide, but only one.

    Not permitted:
    Commercially available chassis.
    Traction Magnets.
    Tire goop or solvent.

    General building guide line:
    In respect to wheels and tires, allowed commercial
    parts used must be 1:43 scale or modified to 1:43 scale
    .
    All four wheels must touch the track and roll.
    No lubricants, oil or otherwise outside the car. This includes
    lubricants applied to the guide.


    BODY:
    Vacuum form, resin cast, styrene, plastic or almost any material
    (baring anything radio active) is allowed.

    No paper bodies please.
    The body must resemble a car and be of 1:43 scale.
    Open wheel bodies are fine.

    CATEGORY #2 NON TRADITIONAL SLOT CAR
    Same rules as Cat #1 however any number of motors is allowed.

    TWO CATEGORIES OF COMPETITION:
    #1 The Race:
    Hosted by Barfly Racing at KSC Speedway - 12 volts. Parma Eco 35 ohm controllers.

    On two lanes;
    10 lap practice immediately followed by a 25 lap time trial on each lane.
    5 slowest lap times will be eliminated from each heat and an average taken of the top 40 lap times.
    Lowest average time wins.

    #2 Voting Poll
    Prior to the race, a thread will be started on HRW, SCXWW and SCI where participants will be asked to post pictures and descriptions of their builds. The more forums you use the more votes you can get.
    Also prior to the race a poll will be conducted on all three forums for both builders and spectators participation.

    In the polls voters will be asked to cast their vote on building techniques, originality and the cars overall appearance. Votes will be tallied up from all three forums for one total score for each entry.
    To avoid prolonged outcomes
    ties in the voting polls will be resolved by the KSC Speedway track manager

    Entrants may provide KSC Speedway with proof of purchase from official race
    sponsors to earn support credits.

            Hey Guys, just wanted to stop in and say hi and let you know we are still in the works for the proxy in January! I'll be around more later in the year to keep the proxy updated. Summer has kept me rather busy, I know you all can understand that

            Thank you.
            Joe.

                Joe,
                Keep Up The Good Work!
                I know CART, been to INDY and F1 and you are my Hero! Any of those guys on any Team would say the same, they just won't post it.
                This is a difficult scale.
