    How did this fragment of a thread get posted here? It's out of context.

      Sorry Rob, I should have sent you a PM - unable to use a redirect when I move Posts in this manner, from one Thread to a new one.

      It's just that it had no context in the Slot.it Shootout 2010 Show & Tell Thread, either!

      Let me know if you think I should move it over here, and it will be done right away - as it says there "WARNING!!! THESE RULES ARE STILL IN DEVELOPMENT!!! ITEMS IN RED ARE STILL SOMEWHAT OPEN FOR DISCUSSION."

      So perhaps your Sauber still has a place to run.

        Let's move this thread fragment again, I think it may find a context eventually.

          Here you go, hopefully this will help.

          Advise if you think it need it's own place in the forums ... but then I guess you would have started a new Thread, were that the case.

              So can we enter a March 83G or only slot-it's here ?

                This series was intended as a continuation of the old Slot.It Shoot-Out rules where you could trim and sand the motor pods, but it might be a good idea to make it more open and allow other makers' parts and cars to be raced. An open Group C race would be good. The March raced in the similar IMSA GTP class, so it would be logical to include it. But, I'm not the race organizer here, just a possible entrant.

                  The march got to Le Mans too in Kreepy Krauly Racing Colours 1984. I have a memory of March chassis being Chevy and Porsche powered at Le Mans. Distant memory.

                    My own motivation initially was to more or less leave last years rules as they stood with only some minor tweeks to preserve what I feel is the real Spirit of the Slot-it Challenge. However, many have approached me with the idea of a More "open" series modeled more along the lines of the RAA LMP class. I have thought on this and have these thoughts:

                    Allow resin and other Group C bodies, such as the March and older Scaleys using OEM or HRS/HRS2 chassis
                    Allow wheels from any manufacturer provided they are scale 15" or larger and use PERIOD style (BBS or similar) inserts. This includes Slotting Plus, SCC, and other wheels that already have detail.
                    If using the OE plastic chassis from Scaley or the March allow any bushings/axles and minor modifications needed to fit motor and gears.

                    I could see evolving into something liek this and running it alongside the Touring car class similar to how the RAA etc. runs.

                    Thoughts? Interest?

                      Well, I'm more of a builder-tuner, not really an RTR-tuner, so I would be interested in an open Group C with rules similar to the RAA LMP (and similar to the actual Group C); that is, practically no restrictions at all, beyond body type, and the usual inserts/tires inside body/driver/injection or resin bodies only, etc. I would hope we could allow scratch built chassis, of any material.

                          Yes but there are not many of those that have been modeled in 1/32 unfortunately.

                          I really need some input from competitors and potential competitors in a hurry if we are going to get these rules finalized.

                            Heck, no one can build a Group C car faster than a Slot.It, so just let it be open to the occasional non-Slot.It entry if anyone dares, such as a March on a TSRF chassis, or Plafit, or a homebuilt brass job.

                            RAA LMP rules are complete, and could be readily adapted to Group C.

                              I just found the list so posted it

                              I would like to see RAA GT1 or LMP rules used for this class

                                It would be my gold to put the slot-it sauber mercedes c9 chassis under the march body
