  • Suzuka 6 HR Endurance race July 23 - 25

    We are hosting a 6 hr Endurance race on the Suzuka track in Victoria, July 23 - 25 2010.
    There will be time for tuning and testing Friday night with the race set to start at 12pm. Being a 6 hr race there will be time for drivers to make it a day trip on the ferries if you don't want to stay over?

    As far as rules are concerned I want to keep them as simple as possible? So Slot.It shoot out rules apply for chassis and body, Tyres are S2 only( if you want to spend a week truing them go ahead!), either the large or small wheels can be used at the rear, any motorpod that will accept the orange end bell motor(only motor allowed) any car found to be "dragging" on the track will be asked to change the set up. No low profile 0zero grips and no Alfa 33/ Ferrari312 front tyres allowed.

    Entrance fee is $25 per team.

      Hi Mark

      The enduro is just for Slot.It, easier for tech and keeps things simple. If you want to race but don't have a car, don't worry! We have plenty of cars and there are always teams looking for drivers.

          Borrowed and edited from the Slot.It Shootout thread

          1. Car Rules:
          - Any and all variants of the Slot.it Porsche 956 & Porsche 962, Mercedes Sauber, Jaguar XHR9 & XJR12, Lancia LC2, and Mazda 787B; as well as any further Slot.it Group C cars which might appear on the market prior to the commencement of the race.
          - Any replacement of components, or modification to them, must conform with the rules of this race.
          - The only non-Slot.it parts allowed in this series are paint, glue, lead, screws, and washers/spacers.
          - No magnets allowed, other than in the motor, or magnetic suspension if employed.

          2. Body Rules:
          - Model body must be complete in all parts, and the shape and dimensions must not be modified - no sanding, no drilling, etc, with these exceptions:
          - Slot.it light kits may be installed. Whether these are employed or not, the car's original Slot.it headlights and tail light lenses are required.
          - Slot.it vacuum formed interiors may NOT be used in place of the original. The windows must remain transparent.
          - Slot.it tearproof parts, or other Slot.it replacement parts, may be used in place of the original. If so, they must be of the design specific to the car they were made for. Some variances may be allowed: ask in the Thread if you have a question about this.
          - Within the context of the above, entrants are encouraged to include mirrors, antennas, wipers, etc, such as were on the original rtr car. Rear wing is mandatory, and during the course of the race, should damage occur, the rear wing will be reattached under green light racing conditions in the designated pit area.
          - Body may be repainted, in whole or in part. Fantasy or actual liveries are permitted. Encouraged, in fact, for those who are so inclined.
          - Racing numbers are required on both sides and front end of every car.
          - Body must be attached to the chassis through the manufacturer provided screw mount posts.
          - Body must be removable, and will be removed at Tech Inspection to ensure compliance with Rules.
          - Jaguar skirts over rear wheels may be omitted.
          - Complete body with interior and any other sundry attached parts must weigh no less than 19 grams.
          - Lead weight may be attached to the body by the entrant. Lead weight will be attached to the body by the Tech Inspector if necessary to bring it into compliance with these Rules.

          3. Chassis Rules:
          - Model chassis must be complete in all parts, and the shape and dimensions must not be modified - no sanding, no drilling, no slicing/cutting etc, with these exceptions:
          - Slot.it alternate chassis variants for the individual cars may be employed, provided that they are model specific. (i.e. No use of any HRS chassis, or installing a Mazda chassis under a 956C body etc.) Entrants are encouraged to consider the latest (Evo/AW) chassis available for their car in order to be as competitive as possible.
          - Entrants who do not use the Evo/AW chassis available for their car are permitted very marginal sanding around the circumference of the chassis. Very marginal? It it looks like it has been sanded, then you have probably gone too far. Should the Tech Inspector deem the chassis as not complying with the technical specifications in these rules, it will be replaced by a new off the shelf chassis.
          - Maximum external tire to tire width for front wheels and rear wheels will not exceed the width of the body when viewed from above.
          - The replacement of virtually all parts with different Slot.it manufactured replacements, and/or the addition of devices such as Slot.it Magnetic Suspension or Spring Suspension is permitted. The installation of a Slot.it lighting system is permitted. Any Slot.it motor mount (pod), any Slot.it axles, Slot.it front axle supports, any Slot.it gears, any Slot.it guide and braids you want to use is fine. Slot.it PA25 stoppers may be employed on the rear axle, which must itself be located in the pod by Slot.it CH14 spherical bushings.
          - Lead weight may be attached anywhere on the top side of the chassis.

          Note: If when assembling your car, you feel there is a need for modification to the body and/or chassis that is not encompassed by the rules, please ask about this in the Thread.

          4. Motor Rules:
          - Orange endbell motor only
          - No changes to, or modifications of, motors is permitted, with the exception of trimming the motor shaft.
          - Lead weight may be attached to the motor.

          5. Wheel Rules * :
          - Wheels must be manufactured by Slot.it.
          - Wheels must have Slot.it inserts installed.
          - White venturi lids may be omitted.
          - No "F1" size wheels permitted.
          - No Alfa/312 size wheels permitted.
          - Plastic/push-on/glued wheels may only be used on the front axle.

          Tire Rules * :
          - SIPT15 ZO (Low Profile Zero Grip) Tires are not permitted.
          - SIPT19 & SIPT20 (Alfa or 312 type) Tires are not permitted.
          - Front tires may be marginally trued to ensure roundness.
          - Front tires may have clear nail polish applied to the tread area, except for PT07 Zero Grips.
          - S2 PT 17 or S2 PT18 tires on rear wheels are the choices for the race.

            Sorry but a change of plans means that I will not be able to attend this weekend.

              Unfortunate to hear that, Geezer, cause that's one of the best sets of Rules I ever saw?

              Adrien and I will do our best to attend?

                Whereabouts is this track now located in Victoria, please? Need an address, maybe a local phone number would be good too.

                Kerry - completely unrelated - good article in the new issue of Car and Driver on Paul Tracy by my favourite automotive writer, John Phillips.

                        Darren, presumably not an issue to remove or modify details (exhausts, air ducts, like that inside the body) that won't fit with an upgraded chassis?

                        Also, any ruling on lightening the interior with the judicious use of power tools, if the lexan replacement isn't allowed?

                          With in reason and they have to have been interfering, just because you don't want them is not an excuse

                          Also, any ruling on lightening the interior with the judicious use of power tools, if the lexan replacement isn't allowed?
                          Definitely not if more than a millimetre is removed off any opening in the cockpit then that is excessive and unnecessary

                          I don't want to have a race that is questionable due to flagrant attempts to circumvent the rules, this is supposed to be fun and more about camaraderie and track time not how strict the tech inspector has to be.

                          If you have specific concerns voice them now so they can be cleared up by Friday so we can all go racing

                            I love a strict technical inspection.

                            I'll get there early.

                            I will bring a stock body just for inspection purposes.
