    ELIGIBLE DRIVERS:
    The top 4 finishers in each Fly/Flyslot/Slotwings 2019 “Classics” regional event held across N. America not
    previously qualified are eligible to complete in the N. America Championship race. All drivers that qualify and
    plan on attending the “Finals Event” should take note that the following rules will be utilized and enforced.
    Modifications to these rules for “Regional Events” such as the use of different tires or other specific parts or
    rules are permitted with advanced notification given by the race director for the event.

    ELIGIBLE CARS:
    Only the following Fly, Flyslot, and Slotwings “Classics” brand cars as raced in the World Championship of
    Manufactures and at Le Mans from 1969 – 1971 are permitted – Chevron B19, Chevron B21, Ferrari 250LM,
    Ferrari 512S (Spyder, Berlinetta, Coda Lunga), Ford GT40, Ford GT40 Mk II, Lola T70 Mk. 3B, Porsche
    Carrera 6 (906), Porsche 908, Porsche 908/2, Porsche 908/2 Flunder, Porsche 908/2 Flunder LH, Porsche 908/3,
    Porsche 917K, and Porsche 917LH. As new cars are introduced they will be reviewed and added. Kits must be
    complete with all the parts that come in the kit, excepting those changes allowed below.

    See picture below for examples of eligible car models:





    GENERAL:
    Any modifications or parts not specifically addressed in the series rules or are not listed in the approved parts
    list are not legal and will not be permitted. If the rules stated on this page do not indicate a part or tuning
    method IS allowed, it is NOT allowed. Any variations to these rules must be approved in advance by
    GTSLOTS. All rules are subject to change.

    THE BODY:
    Bodies may not be modified, lightened, or cut in any way – including wheel wells, body posts, interiors, etc.

    EXCEPTIONS: Sharp edges and burrs may be trimmed or sanded slightly to permit clearance for the proper
    seating of the body onto the chassis and to allow for body float. All cars must start each race with all parts
    intact except for exhaust pipes, mirrors, wipers, and antennas. All cars must start with all rear wings and/or
    spoiler(s) in place as applicable if it came on the original model. Bodies and interiors can be custom painted,
    but all cars must have proper numbers and markings as is prototypical and look like race cars. Bodies must be
    attached by any and all screws locations provided by the factory, using any manufacturer’s screws, and shims
    are permitted to adjust chassis/body/spur gear/tire tweak and clearance. If body screws are run loose, tape must
    be placed over the screw holes in the bottom of the chassis. All cars must use the complete and unmodified
    interior w/driver figure as supplied with the car. The front edge of the interior, front interior mounting posts,
    and detail mounting posts may be modified sufficiently only to allow clearance of a full front axle or do-it-
    yourself stub axles in replacement of the stock stub axles. An “in-line” body may only be used with an “inline”
    chassis unless all missing detail/interior parts are replaced with those used on a sidewinder body of the same type car.
    All windows must remain transparent as is prototypical. (Note: split and cracked body posts may be repaired by
    reinforcement through the use of styrene, aluminum, brass or similar tubing and the use of glue over the damaged post
    as long as the post’s original height is not altered.)


    CHASSIS/PODS:
    Only Fly, Flyslot, and Slotwings in-line and sidewinder (with and w/o pod) type chassis. NO TRACTION
    MAGNETS.
    Sanding edges of chassis for float is legal. No more than .010” of material should be removed. If
    a standard credit card can be passed in the gap between the body and chassis, the sanding has exceeded
    tolerance and the car may fail inspection. NO modifications to axle mounts front or rear are permitted. Front
    axle ride height adjusting blocks must be in place if included in original model. (Note: chassis may not be
    modified in any manner to fit gears.)

    AXLES\BUSHINGS\WHEELS\TIRES:
    Fly, Flyslot, Slotwings, or any other manufacture’s 3/32” axles, axle stoppers, and bushings (no ball bearings or
    offset bushings except as noted) are allowed. Bushings may be glued in place. Front stub axles may be
    replaced with a single axle of the correct length, stub axles fabricated from a shortened axle and axle stopper, or
    equivalent. (Note: on the Chevron the front body post mount prevents the use of a single axle.) Axle shims are
    permitted. Stock front and rear wheels and/or any style (or color) C. B. Design wheels (front – 15mm x 8mm
    only/rear – 15mm x 11mm only) are allowed. Stock plastic wheels may be lightly sanded for the purposes of
    truing. Wheels may be painted. CA (Super) glue may be used to repair loose or attach plastic wheels.
    Fly/Flyslot/Slotwings stock or Slot.it tires may be used on the front. Front tires may be both glued and trued.
    All rear tires to be supplied by race host (Regional) or GTSLOTS (Regional and N.A. Finals) on race day unless
    otherwise noted. Note: some rear bushings may require the removal (or notching) of the bearing flange where it
    comes into contact with the motor can and will be permitted only in the sidewinder chassis cars for the proper
    seating and alignment of the motor in the rear motor pod assembly. See picture below:






    Approved rear tires are:
    “Quick Slicks” tire(s) #CB46 (.780”x.435”), #CB47 (.797”x.433”), #CB48 (.813”x.441), or #CB49
    (.828”x.441”). Rear tires may extend past body by no more than .5mm. (.020”). No chemicals may be used on
    the tires. Tires are subject to change at the Finals and due to availability some tire sizes may not be
    available. Regional hosts can determine tires to be used for their regional race.

    GEARING:
    ONLY the Slot.it 12 tooth 6.5 mm pinion and the 34/36/38 tooth (ratios – 2.83/3.00/3.17) 19 mm sidewinder
    spur gears for sidewinder configured cars and the Slot.it 8 tooth 5.5 mm pinion and the 23/24/25/26 tooth (ratios
    – 2.88/3.00/3.13/3.25) in-line spur (standard or offset) gears for in-line configured cars are permitted. Driver
    may apply grease to the gears.

    GUIDE BLADES/BRAID/ELECTRICAL:
    Only the Fly/Flyslot/Slotwings stock guide blade is allowed and shimming is permitted. Any manufactures’
    braid and lead wire may be used and must be attached to the guide blade through the use of any manufactures’
    eyelets or the M2 grub screw method. (Note: the lead wires may be soldered directly to the eyelets only and
    may not be glued or soldered to the braid). Wires may be held in place and supported on the chassis using tape,
    heat shrink tubing, and/or silicone adhesive.

    ALLOWED MODIFICATIONS TO THE CHASSIS/BODY:
    In order to foster competition and create parity between the different models and drive configurations of
    Fly/Flyslot/Slotwing cars, the following approved modifications are being permitted on a car by car basis (Note:
    all modifications should be made in a clean and professional manner and not deter from the proper “look” of the car):

    General (all cars):
    - It has been found that the motor wires should be routed over the pinion side of the motor and
    not over the motor can so as not to cause interference (pinching) with the underside of the car
    body. (Note: no material may be removed from the interior or detail parts for clearance of the
    motor wires except at the point of contact where the wires are soldered to the motor tabs and
    only sufficient to permit the proper seating of the body to the chassis.)
    - If using fabricated stub axles, some cars may require material removed from mounting posts for
    interiors and other body details for clearance of stub axle parts.

    Chevron B19/B21 (sidewinder):
    - The engine air intake trumpet detail that resides between the inside of the body and top surface
    of the electric motor may be trimmed to allow clearance to the motor for pod and body float.

    Ferrari 250LM (sidewinder):
    - The pinion gear may be narrowed to a thickness of .110” or tapered at the end to allow
    clearance for removal of the pinion and to clear the gear side rear tire inner edge.

    Ferrari 512S (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Ferrari 512S Coda Lunga (in-line):
    - The area on the bottom of the interior tray assembly between the driver and the bottom of the
    air intake detail of the engine may be shaved to allow clearance for the top of the electric motor
    can (including tape to secure the motor in place) to allow the chassis to fully seat in place within
    the body and to allow for proper body float.

    Ferrari 512S Coda Lunga (sidewinder):
    - Rear body “trim tabs” are optional.

    Ferrari 512S Berlinetta (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Ford GT40 (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Ford GT40 Mk II (in-line):
    - Avant Slot 0.5mm offset axle bushings may be used to adjust issue with alignment of motor
    shaft and rear axle.
    - The area on the bottom of the interior tray assembly beneath the driver and the bottom of the air
    intake detail of the engine may be shaved to allow clearance for the top of the electric motor can
    (including tape to secure the motor in place) to allow the chassis to seat in place within the body
    and to allow for proper body float. (Note: sufficient material must remain to support the driver
    portion of the interior.)

    Ford GT40 Mk II (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Lola T70 Mk. 3B (in-line):
    - The exhaust pipe openings on the rear of the body may be extended to the bottom of the body
    so as to allow for the chassis to properly seat in the body.
    - Avant Slot 1.0mm offset axle bushings may be used to adjust issue with alignment of motor
    shaft and rear axle.

    Lola T70 Mk. 3B (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Porsche Carrera 6 [906] (sidewinder):
    - The pinion gear may be narrowed to a thickness of .110” or tapered at the end to allow
    clearance for removal of the pinion and to clear the gear side rear tire inner edge.

    Porsche 908 (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Porsche 908 Flunder (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Porsche 908 Flunder LH (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Porsche 908/2 (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Porsche 908/3 (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Porsche 917K (in-line):
    The area on the bottom of the interior tray assembly between the driver and the bottom of the
    cooling fan detail of the engine may be shaved and/or removed to allow clearance for the top of
    the electric motor can (including tape to secure the motor in place) to allow the chassis to fully
    seat in place within the body and to allow for proper body float.

    Porsche 917K (sidewinder): none required at this time

    Porsche 917LH (in-line):
    The area on the bottom of the interior tray assembly between the driver and the bottom of the
    cooling fan detail of the engine may be shaved and/or removed to allow clearance for the top of
    the electric motor can (including tape to secure the motor in place) to allow the chassis to fully
    seat in place within the body and to allow for proper body float. In addition the surface of the
    spare tire and/or the under body tail section where the two parts come into contact may be
    shaved to allow for body float.

    Porsche 917LH (sidewinder): none required at this time

    MOTOR:
    Regional Events:
    Motors provided by the racers themselves (GTSLOTS black and/or white endbell short can also known as the
    Piranha 21.5k – rated 21.5k @12volts) using the appropriate Slot.it 12 tooth or 8 tooth pinion. It is suggested
    that the motors of the top 5 finishers be tested at the conclusion of the event to confirm legality with the results
    (if tested) provided to GTSLOTS along with the event race results. (NOTE: contact GTSLOTS technical
    contacts shown below for additional information on the testing of motors.)

    North America Finals:
    Motors provided by the racers themselves (GTSLOTS black and/or white endbell short can also known as the
    Piranha 21.5k – rated 21.5k @12volts) using the appropriate Slot.it 12 tooth or 8 tooth pinion. All motors will
    be tested for RPM as part of the tech inspection process with a maximum not to exceed _______ RPM. (Note:
    spec will be provided and adjusted accordingly as motors are tested at the event.) No chemicals (example: Voo
    Doo drops, etc.) shall be added to the motors. For the sole purpose to hold the motor in place, motors may
    ONLY be attached in place in the motor pod or chassis by using a single piece of tape and/or removable glue
    supplied by the racer. Holes may be cut out of the tape to allow for cooling over the motor vent holes.

    WEIGHT:
    Weight may be added to the inside of the chassis. Added weight may not be utilized to alter the function or
    movement of the front or rear axles. NO weight may be attached to the underside of the chassis.

    LIGHTING:
    May not be added.

    TRACK VOLTAGE:
    Suggested 12 volts (Note: track power will be set at 12 volts for the N. America finals and the GTSLOTS
    regional races)

    RACE PROCEDURES: (as to be used at the N. America finals and GTSLOTS regional events):
    - All participating race cars will be inspected to ensure rule compliance. A few test laps (the number to be
    determined by the race organizer) will be allowed prior to the final inspection.
    - It is the responsibility of each participant to make sure that the front spoiler, chassis, and spur gear of their car
    has sufficient clearance to the track and pickup rail surface so as not to rub under race conditions and will be
    inspected for such clearance.
    - Loose parts, wheel inserts, etc. may be attached and/or repaired using any type of available glue.
    - Cars will be impounded after the inspection process and drivers cannot touch their cars unless done under
    “green flag” race conditions under the observation of a race official.
    - Any controller is permitted, provided that the controller does not store an electrical charge.
    - The race director for the event (the race organizer holding the event) will have the final determination if any
    questions or conflicts arise.
    - Drivers and/or their authorized representatives may repair broken or damaged cars (IE: damaged braids,
    broken wires, loose gears and/or wheels, lose or missing screws, etc.) during “green flag” conditions, only
    under the view of a race official assigned by the race director, repairs must be properly performed to meet all
    posted rules, and parts may not be torn or broken off the car where screws are used to retain the parts (IE: the
    front spoiler, etc.) to perform the repair.
    - For any clarification of the race procedures being used at the N. America Championship please contact:
