    Below is a picture of the Great Traditions track used for the N. America Finals:


    ELIGIBLE DRIVERS:

    The top 4 finishers in each Racer Sideways 2017 “Group 5” 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 “National 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 Sideways Group 5 brand cars are permitted – BMW 320, BMW M1, Ferrari 512 BB LM Silhouette, Ford Capri Zakspeed, Ford Mustang, Lancia Beta MonteCarlo, Lancia Stratos Group 5, Porsche 935 Moby Dick, Porsche 935/K2, and Porsche 935/77. GTSLOTS Limited Edition Gp. 5 Championship cars, similar white body kits, and as new cars are introduced they will be reviewed and added to the approved list if eligible (see approved parts list for complete list). 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 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 Racer or Slot.it screws (w/washer under screw head as supplied with some cars is allowed) only, 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 Racer Sideways lexan interior FOR THE SPECIFIC MODEL CAR BEING RACED. NO Slot.it interiors are allowed. All windows must remain transparent as is prototypical.

    CHASSIS/PODS:

    Racer Sideways Gp. 5 chassis only, w/Racer or Slot.it anglewinder type motor pods only (NO inline or sidewinder pods). 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 Racer 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, Racer 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. Axle shims and/or stoppers are allowed.


    AXLES\BUSHINGS\WHEELS\TIRES:

    Only Racer Sideways or Slot.it axles and bushings are allowed. Racer Sideways or Slot.it (plastic, aluminum, or magnesium) (standard or short hub) wheels must 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 Racer 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) Racer 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 race host (Regional) or GTSLOTS (Regional and National) on race day unless otherwise noted.



    Approved tires are:

    “Quick Slicks” tire(s) #CB32XF (.799”x.360”), #CB33XF (.819”x.360”), #CB34XF (.835”x.360”), #CB57XF (.789”x.406”), #CB58XF (.809”x.406”), or #CB59XF (.829”x.406”).

    Slot.it Zero grips or stock Racer tires can 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 Nationals 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 11t 6.5mm or 6.75mm Slot.It sidewinder pinion gear is to be used on the motor. Driver may use any available Slot.It 16mm metal (GA16xx-e) or plastic (GA16xx-pl) anglewinder spur gear as required to fit the anglewinder pod used. Driver may apply grease to the gears.

    GUIDE BLADES/BRAID/ELECTRICAL:

    Any Racer or Slot.it guide blade is allowed and shimming is permitted. Any manufacture braid and wire can be used and must be attached to the guide/braid through the use of Slot.it eyelets or the Slot.it M2 grub screw method and may not be glued or soldered.

    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). Any such modifications are made at the racer’s own risk:

    General (all cars): none required at this time

    MOTOR:

    General:

    As there are multiple versions of the Slot.it yellow Flat-6 20K motor, identified by the number and size of the slots on the motor can; only the most recent released version, identified by one narrow slot (.155” x .960”) on one side of the motor can will be permitted for use at the Regional and National events. Motors must have their full original factory wrapper (yellow plastic or “Slot.it” foil) in place, and may be wrapped in clear plastic tape to assist in protecting the factory wrapper. The area of the slot in the can may be opened to permit cooling.

    Regional Events:

    Motors to be provided by the race host or racers themselves (Slot.it yellow Flat-6 20K motor – rated 20.5k rpm @12volts) using Slot.it 11 tooth 6.5mm or 6.75mm pinions only. 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 GTSLOT technical contacts shown below for additional information on the testing of motors.)

    Finals:

    Only the provided handout (Slot.it yellow Flat-6 20K motor – rated 20.5k rpm @12volts) motor is legal for the National event and will be supplied by GTSLOTS. Motors will be pre-tested, will be supplied with the shafts pre-trimmed to properly fit in all cars, will be pre-lubricated, will be marked with an ID code, racers will provide their own pinion gears (Slot.it 11 tooth, 6.5mm or 6.75mm), and must be used as supplied without further modification. Racers/Tech Inspectors will be responsible for the soldering of the lead wires to the motor tabs without overheating the tabs and causing damage to the motor. 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 either using Slot.it motor screws w/washers through the appropriate screw holes provided in the motor (Slot.it) pod and into the pre-threaded holes in the “can” end of the motor, using the Racer pod clamping system, and/or using a single piece of tape supplied by GTSLOTS. Racers would receive their handout motor at a predetermined time at the event, have the opportunity to test/practice with the handout motor before the start of competition, the option to purchase a replacement motor prior to the start of competition, and keep the motor(s) at the conclusion of the event.

    WEIGHT:

    Weight may be added to the inside of the chassis. 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:

    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.

    - 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 National Championship please contact:

            I'm just close enough geographically to have interest in this, but can't really make it work. April 29/April 30 looks to be a big weekend for the qualifying races.

                  True, the regional race dates are bunching up pretty quickly, there's at least 3 others I expect to announce shortly. You're welcome to come to the Plainfield, NJ regional if your schedule permits. We've had other racers from Maryland attend in prior years. Thanks for the interest; if I don't see you there, hope to see you at the finals.
