    Update Slot.it 2009 Rules.

    I am working on the 2009 Slot.it Rules to clarify them for our Scaleracing Series.

    We will run a spec tire ( to be decided ) and all car will run 12:30 gearing.

    Novice Racers can enter the standard inline set up cars with complying to the earlier Scaleracing Slot.it Rules.

    Basic in line Rules. ( These rules will now be used on GT1 Class Cars )

    21,500 RPM Orange Endbell motor any gear ratio.

    Can tune with weight to adjust handling.

    No body modifications other than allowed in Slot.it 2009 Rules.

    No cutting or modification of the pod.

    All parts should appear as supplied by Slot.it. Only light sanding of chassis and pod is allowed to create float.

    Slot.it guides, any Slot.it wheels ( except F1 and Vintage )

    No low profile front tires in this Class.

    More as soon as I can.

          Update Slot.it 2009 Rules.
          Definitely a step in the right direction. You could maybe consider a sidewinder setup option as well, with similar gearing.

            The idea is NOT to get into a tuning war but have each car built to the same rules so the drivers are the deciding factor and not necessarily the tuner/builders.

                Where do I get a 12t 5.5mm pinion?

                It appears that both the Group C cars with the monster motors and the GT1 cars with the 21.5k orange endbell will require 12/30 gearing, am I reading that right?

                  Not exactly...

                  The GT1 class now runs the old Group C/GTP rules:

                  Inline Orange Endbell
                  No F1 wheels or tires
                  No low profile zero grips
                  Weight allowed
                  Etc.

                    "..........am I reading that right?" No. Run any slot.it inline gearing you want in the inline GT1 cars...ie Nissan R390, Audi R8, McLaren F1GTR

                      There are races in Tacoma and Victoria. There are also clubs that have adopted the rules in their area. If we knew where you were we would be able to direct you to your closest track!

                          Hello Fred

                          Great to see you here on SCI, Happy Birthday from a while ago, hope you are doing good.

                          Regarding Slot.it Challenge and BRM Challenge Events they can be held by any Commercial Raceway, Hobby Store, Club or group of Racers who wants to hold an Event.

                          All I ask is they follow the Slot.it and BRM Challenge Rules and Announce the race on SCI.
                          Promote the Event so others can follow their Race, and post photo's and race results here as well.

                          This helps grow the Racing group and shows others there is organized racing going on.

                          These races lead to the National Final which I will be presenting in the Seattle Tacoma area on the weekend of August 21st - 23rd.

                          Schedule will be announced closer to the Event.

                          First Place Prize is a trip for two Racers to Slotlandia in Italy Sept 25th -27th with Entry in the Slot.it ands BRM Finals.

                          Airfare and Hotel will be covered as part of the prize for winning, expenses are the responsibility of the Racers.

                          More on this Event as soon as I can, but for now this is the News.

                          All Racers who win a Slot.it and BRM Challenge are invited to enter the SeaTac Final, plus anyone who does not enter a Regional Event can try to qualify on Race Weekend.

                          All Regional Winners are seeded through to at least the Semi Finals.

                          These will be Team Races, and the Team who scores the most points in both races will qualify, There will be points for position in both Races, in the Event of a tie lap total will decide who wins.
