          • Rule changes for the Can Am class

            This came from a request by more than several drivers; and was also brought about by the introduction of the new "Thunderslots" Lola (Can Am with a NSR type chassis / pod, & a 21,500 RPM motor). Discussions were held with quite a few drivers, including Ron & Dan.

            Effective immediately:
            Provisionally (meaning we will try it), the three existing Can Am sub-classes will be merged into
            ONE Can Am class. All entrants will be scored together.

            So, Slot It's, Fly's, NSR's, Thunderslot's, Monogram/Revell's, Hybrids, etc.; will now all race in one
            Can Am class.

            Motors that are allowed, is being brought about by a couple of things.
            - The new Thunderslots Lola, having it's own branded 21.5 k RPM motor.
            - Slot It announced a while ago, that the Orange End Bell motor will continue to be made, but
            will most likely be packaged / identified as a 23 k RPM motor. Same basic Orange End Bell motor,
            with a different rating. This motor is already appearing in the newest Slot-It Group C cars.

            *** Following, is a post [from JohnnySlots] about the "new" orange end bell motor, where Maurizio (owner of Slot-It) was asked about it.
            “Maurizio, have you released an official statement about the new MX16 motor that will replace the orange endbell in Group C cars? I know there are a lot of questions about the performance of the engine in relation to the orange motor, and why this is being done. I also know that a lot of people that race stock Group C classes may not allow it.”

            Here is his response to me.

            “Except for the endbell, now moulded in one single piece vs the previous two pieces unit, the motor is exactly the same as before. Same magnets, case, winding, armature, carbons. It must be considered that the previous orange-ish endbell motor was wrongly specified at 21.5K, whereas it was 23K instead. The improvement should be a more uniform production, not a change in performance, so I think the old orange endbells V12/3 and the new V12/4 should be allowed to race together. We’ve made several tests and there is no significant performance change. The Skoal Bandit car will still have the V12/3 motor, the Camel 962 the new one. The published RPM vs. real RPM skew dates back a few years ago, when the motor maker changed the shape (and metal) of the case, without letting us know. Performance increased to 23K, but we didn’t change the specs.” ***

            Effective immediately:
            Provisionally, the motors allowed in the Can Am class will be:
            - "old" Slot-It orange end bell, 21.5 k RPM.
            - "new" Slot-It orange end bell, (probably going to be labeled as) 23 k RPM.
            - Piranha black end bell 21.5 k RPM.
            - NSR shark 20 k RPM (stock in NSR Can Am's).
            - NSR shark 22 k RPM.
            -Thunderslot 21.5 k RPM.

            The many manufacturers of Can Am cars, along with the choice of 6 different motors, combined with
            the existing "open gearing" rule for this class, gives a driver a multitude of options in Can Am.

            The Can Am rules, on page #1, post #1, of this thread will be changed in a few days.

            Have fun.
