    cars, similar white body kits, and as new cars are introduced they will be reviewed and added to the approved
    list if eligible. Kits must be complete with all the parts that come in the kit, excepting those changes allowed
    below. See picture below for eligible car examples:




    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 mirrors, wipers, and antennas. All cars must start with all wings and/or spoiler(s) in place as applicable if it came on the original model. Bodies and interiors may be custom painted, but all cars must have proper numbers and markings as is prototypical and look like race cars of the era represented. Bodies must be attached by any and all screws locations provided by the factory, using any manufacture’s screws (w/washer under screw head as supplied with some cars is allowed), 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 bottom of the chassis. All cars must use the complete and unmodified interior w/driver figure as supplied with the car, or the replacement Sideways lexan interior FOR THE SPECIFIC MODEL CAR BEING RACED. NO Slot.it interiors are allowed. 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:
    Racer Sideways Gp. 5 chassis only, w/Racer Sideways (Group 5 type for Flat 6 and FK-180 type motors and/or GT3 Type for FK-180 type motor) or Slot.it anglewinder type motor pods only (NO inline or sidewinder pods). (Note: Sideways GT3 type pod may be modified for rear motor screw removal issue.) Slot.it EVO6 motor pods may have their unused side mounting tabs removed to match the equivalent non-EVO6 type pod. NO TRACTION MAGNETS. Any of the Sideways rear axle height adjustment parts and/or the pod front 2-point mount adapter may be used (single mount point tab must remain in place if permanently attached to the pod). The chassis filler pieces may be removed to fit a Slot.it pod and are not required. Slot.it magnetic and spring suspensions are allowed, with any Slot.it magnet or spring intended for their suspension. Spacers between motor pod and chassis screw locations to adjust chassis tweak are allowed. Sanding edges of motor pods, rear axle height adjustment parts, and chassis for fit and 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 other modifications to axle mounts front or rear are permitted. Front axle ride height adjusting set screws (upper and lower) may be used and adjusted as required using any manufacture’s set screws. Axle shims and/or stoppers are allowed.

    AXLES\BUSHINGS\WHEELS\TIRES:
    Only Racer Sideways or Slot.it axles and bushings are allowed. Only Racer Sideways or Slot.it (plastic, aluminum, or magnesium) (standard or short hub) wheels may be used. Front wheels – 15.8mm x 8.2mm only. Rear wheels – 17.3mm x 8.2/9.75/10mm only. The correct and appropriate inserts for the Sideways GP. 5 cars being raced must be used, therefore if using Slot.it wheels, you must fit the complete (ring and/or wheel spoke assembly) Sideways Gp. 5 inserts into them. Wheel insert assemblies may be painted. All cars must start each race with all wheel rings and inserts in place (as appropriate for the car model being raced). All rear tires to be supplied by GTSLOTS on race day unless otherwise noted.

    Approved tires are:
    “Quick Slicks” tire(s) #CB32 (.799”x.360”), #CB33 (.819”x.360”), #CB34 (.835”x.360”), #CB57 (.789”x.406”), #CB58 (.809”x.406”), or #CB59 (.829”x.406”). Slot.it Zero grips or stock Racer Sideways tires may be used on the front. 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.

    GEARING:
    Any available Racer Sideways or Slot.it 6.5mm or 6.75mm sidewinder pinion (11/12/13 tooth) gear may be used on the motor, and any available Sideways or Slot.it 16mm metal (GA16xx-e) or plastic (GA16xx-pl) anglewinder (26/27/28/29/20/31 tooth) anglewinder spur gear may be used as required to fit the anglewinder pod used. Driver may apply grease to the gears.

    GUIDE BLADES/BRAID/ELECTRICAL:
    Any Sideways or Slot.it guide blade is allowed and shimming is permitted. Any manufacture braid and lead wire may be used and must be attached to the guide/braid through the use of any manufactures eyelets or the Slot.it 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.)

    CAR SPECIFIC ALLOWED MODIFICATIONS:
    In order to foster competition and create parity between the different models of the Racer Sideways “Group 5” 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).

    MOTOR:
    General:
    Approved motors: Slot.it yellow Flat-6 20K (only the most recent released version identified by one narrow slot [.155 x .860] on one side of the motor can will be permitted), Jaws 17.5k, or the Sideways Baby Raptor 17k provided by the racers themselves will be permitted for use at the Regional and Finals events. Slot.it and Sideways motors must have their original factory wrapper (yellow plastic or foil) in place on at least the top and sides of the motor and all motors may be wrapped in clear plastic tape to assist in protecting and supporting the factory wrapper and preventing an electrical short to the track. The area(s) of tape covering the existing slot(s) in the can may be opened to permit cooling. 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 by using either using motor screws w/washers through the appropriate screw holes provided in the motor (Sideways GT or Slot.it) pod and into the pre-threaded holes in the “can” end of the motor, using the Sideways pod clamping system, 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 existing motor vent holes.
    :
    Motors provided by the racers themselves (see above list) using the appropriate Sideways or Slot.it pinion. All motors will be tested for RPM as part of the tech inspection process with a maximum not to exceed (17k)______/(17.5k)______/(20k)______ RPM based upon motor type used. (Note: spec will be provided and adjusted accordingly as motors are tested at the event.)

    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 (Optional):
    May be added, if used must be Slot.it brand only.

    TRACK VOLTAGE:
    Track power will be set at 12 volts for the N. America finals.

    RACE PROCEDURES:

    - 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 North America Championship please contact:

Track opens 10:00 am, tech starts at noon, racing at conclusion of tech. Rules in post #1 of this thread will be followed, except drivers supply their own Quick Slicks tires specified in the rules.

America Finals, to be held June 2, 2019.

              RACE PROCEDURE UPDATE: In the past, regional events were held to qualify racers for the Finals.

To confirm interest in attending, please contact Robert Holt via phone (908-397-7886) or email ([email protected]) for event planning purposes. Clubs and groups are encouraged to hold 'warm up' races to prepare for the Finals. This change is reflected in the rules shown in post #1, see text in red typeface.

                  CORRECTION: There was a typo in the spec for the allowed open slot size in the Flat Six motor can. It previously read .155 x .960; should have read .155 x .860. Correction has been made in the "MOTOR" section of the rules in the initial post of this thread.
