    Those look like good rules.

      Those rules make my brain hurt. Perhaps separate sets of rules for the 2 classes would be better.

      Can an entrant enter both classes?

        Hi Alan,

        The rules, on first reading, seem fine to me.

        The one important deciding factor for me, as to which way to go - is rule 7.2. How soon do you think a decision will be made about what the spec tire will be?

        Cheers, Tony.

          Waiting for Maurizio on tires.

          Hopefully will have News very soon on the Spec Tire, I am excited about the two classes.

          Regarding entry in both, I feel we are best to allow entry in one class first if the Grid is not full then we will accept entrants in the other class.
          There will be qualifying so the Event will be open to more than 24 Racers however the Final count will be 24 cars. It will likely be split by percentage of entrants, so if more enter the EVO Class more of those cars will be on the Final Grid after qualifying.

          Hope that makes sense, more after the weekend.

            12.1 Evo Any Slot.it suspension may be used in part or its entirety.
            I am inclined to infer from section 12 that no suspension is legal for the straight up Gp C class. Is this correct?

              No Suspension

              Group C no suspension is correct, you can loosen screws that's all.

              This year you could run A stock ( From the last 3 or so years production ) Slot.it car and be perfectly legal. Should make it easy to get involved for those that want to. The EVO Class allows a lot more tuning, it will be interesting to see which Class comes out on top overall.

                Nice ... I am surprised though that any motor can be used in the inline "stock" class.

                One question though ...
                8.3 It is forbidden to modify the motor or make any maneuver that may affect the performance, including breaking in using any type of liquid.

                Isn't oil a liquid?

                      It is really referring to submerging the motor, so dunking it in oil may not have the best results...

                            7.2 The rear tires must be the Slot.it TBA, supplied by the organization in parc fermé. They cannot be glued to the rim.
                            7.2.1 Evo Any Slot.it tires may be used on the rear (except Formula 1 or S series) and all four tires may be glued and trued.
                            Is it your intention to allow a mix of S1s/S2s along with P or C compound on the grid?
