    Porsche 908/2 (sidewinder)

    Porsche 917LH (in-line)

    Details:

    Racers are allowed to used the approved model cars that are manufactured by Fly or Flyslot. This will open the livery's up and allow to race some new cars.

    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 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 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 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 “in-line” 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.

    CHASSIS:

    Fly or Flyslot chassis only. 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.)

    ALLOWED MODIFICATIONS TO THE CHASSIS/BODY:

    In order to foster competition and create parity between the different models and drive configurations of Fly and Flyslot 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):
    - As there has been a reported shortage of some parts for Flyslot cars at this time, the use of older “Fly” parts as replacement for damaged or broken “Flyslot” parts is allowed. However, must have all of the parts in place (original or replacement) that came with the original “Fly/Flyslot” car except those parts listed in “The Body” section.
    - 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 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 512S (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.

    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 (see post #74 in this thread).
    - 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.)

    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 (see post #74 in this thread).

    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 908/2 (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.

    AXLES\BUSHINGS\WHEELS\TIRES:

    Flyslot or any other manufacture’s 3/32” axles, axle stoppers, and bushings (no ball bearings) 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 stock or Slot.it tires may be used on the front. Front tires may be both glued and trued.

    Motor:
    Slot it Orange bell or Piranha 21.5k (Motors can be glued in place)

    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 or Flyslot stock guide blade is allowed. Any manufacture braid and wire can be used and must be attached to the guide/braid through the use of Flyslot eyelets and may not be glued or soldered.


    WEIGHT:

    Weight may be added to the inside of the chassis. NO weight may be attached to the underside of the chassis.

    My Challenger beat me...

    I tried to prep a Challenger for this race. And I spent quite a bit of time trying to stuff the foam tires under the fenders. But it was all for naught.
    So I will be running a Camaro... *yawn*
