    Rules


    ELIGIBLE CARS:


    Only Monogram brand cars are allowed. At the time of this publication, current versions allowed are:





    Ford 1963/1965 Galaxie, Part no.: 04887 (Ned Jarrett), 04888 (Fireball Roberts), 04894 (Dan Gurney), 08333-04892 (Fred Lorenzen), 08342-04891 (Marvin Panch), 08343 (Junior Johnson)

    Ford 1967 Fairlane, Part no.: 04827-08527 (Wendell Scott), 04828 (David Pearson), 04895 (Mario Andretti), 04831 (Parnelli Jones), 04836 (Dick Hutcherson)


    Chrysler 1967 Plymouth, Part no.: 85-4843 (Paul Goldsmith)


    As they are introduced, newly released cars will be reviewed and added to the above list if eligible.



    GENERAL:


    This will be a "box stock" race series as supplied by Monogram. Only those modifications listed are permitted. Any modifications not specifically addressed in the series rules are not legal and will not be permitted. Any variations to these rules must be approved in advance by GTSLOTS.


    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 only to permit clearance for the proper seating of the body onto the chassis. Cars must start each race with all parts intact except for mirrors, wipers, and antennas. Bodies can be custom painted; however, they must have numbers and should have the appearance of the "Grand National" race cars as raced during the mid-1960’s. Bodies must be attached to the chassis using the appropriate screws in the stock locations. If body screws are run loose, tape must be placed over the holes in bottom of chassis. Windows must remain transparent. The complete interior must be used and no modification or lightening is allowed.


    CHASSIS:


    NO TRACTION MAGNETS. Minimal sanding of the edges of the chassis, including sharp edges and burrs is permitted to allow for the body/chassis to float and to allow for the necessary clearance for the proper seating of the body on to the chassis. (Note: Where material is removed for the purpose of allowing float, the gap or space between the chassis and the body may not exceed .032" [the thickness of a plastic credit card {Caution – some credit cards contain magnetic strips that can be damaged by magnets as used in electric motors!}].) Body mounting posts on the chassis may not be modified in any way other than removing burrs and sharp edges. No modifications to axle mounts front or rear is permitted. Front axle support assembly must be in place with all parts, no modifications, the wheelbase locating strips in place on top set for the proper wheelbase for the body being raced, may not be shimmed for height adjustment, and the 4 mounting screws snug in place. Axle shims are allowed to reduce side play in the axle assemblies. Stock bushings may be glued in place.


    WHEELS AND TIRES:


    Only the stock front and rear wheels may be used, and may be lightly sanded for the purposes of truing. Wheels may be painted if desired. For the front, only the original Monogram rubber tires as supplied with the car must be used. Front tires may be both glued and trued, but the original tread pattern must be visible. Rear tires (Max Traxx), the original track of the front and rear axle/wheel assemblies must be maintained and may not be changed. CA (Super) glue may be used to repair loose wheels. No chemicals may be used on the tires.


    GEARING:


    Only the stock gear ratio (11/37) is allowed. CA (Super) glue may be used to repair a loose spur gear.


    GUIDE BLADES/BRAID/ELECTRICAL:


    Only the original Monogram stock guide blade is allowed and may be shimmed by no more than .020" (.5mm). Only Monogram #85-5117 or Carrera #26361 pickup braids may be used and must be attached to the guide through the use of the flattened eyelets (attaching system as designed by Monogram). Any manufactures’ lead wire and eyelets may be used. Lead wires may be routed above or below the front axle, but must be below the front axle assembly upper plate. Lead wires may be soldered to the eyelets, but may not be soldered or glued to the braid or guide accordingly. (NOTE: It may be necessary to adjust the fold over tab on the braid a few thousands of an inch for a proper fit in the guide blade for the flattened eyelets to pinch and hold the braid in place properly.)


    MOTOR:


    Only Monogram stock FC130 – 20k @12volts motor is legal for the event. Noise reduction devices that appear on the stock motors can be removed from the motors. Motors that appear to be tampered with will be required to be replaced before the race starts. (NOTE: Based on the motor mounting system built in to the chassis, no additional materials are required to hold the motor in place.)


    WEIGHT:


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




    TRACK VOLTAGE:

    Suggested 11 volts (Note: track power will be set at 11 volts for the N. America finals and the GTSLOTS regional races)



    - All participating race cars will be inspected to insure rule compliance. A few test laps (the number to be determined by the race organizer) will be allowed prior to the final inspection.

    - Cars will be impounded after the inspection process and drivers cannot touch their cars unless done under "green flag" race conditions under the observation of a race official.


    - Any controller is permitted, provided that the controller does not store an electrical charge.

          Professor Lite and I had a great time racing with group yesterday. The BRM race was fun with the "new to me specs" which makes them a blast to drive. The final 1/24 race was the Scaleauto GTs which are always a treat.

          See you all at the next race.
