Only Monogram brand cars are allowed. At the time of this publication, current versions allowed are:
As they are introduced, newly released cars will be reviewed and added to the above list if eligible. Pictured below are (L-R) the Dick Hutcherson, Fireball Roberts, Wendell Scott, and Ned Jarrett cars.
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. Slight sanding of the edges of the chassis, including sharp edges, burrs, and body mounting posts is permitted only to allow for the necessary clearance for the proper seating of the body on to the chassis. 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, and may not be shimmed for height adjustment. 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 (Super Tire 1700C) will be supplied on race day by the Regional/National host track. 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 the provided handout (Monogram stock FC130 – 20k @12volts) motor is legal for all events and will be supplied by GTSLOTS to the race host prior to the race date. Motors will be pre-tested (a report form will be supplied), will be supplied pre-lubricated with pinions (Slot-It 11 tooth 6.5mm) already installed (and properly adjusted), and must be used as supplied. Any noise reduction devices installed on the motors must remain as supplied and pinions are not to be moved on the motor shafts. Racers/Tech Inspectors will be responsible for the soldering of the lead wires to the motor tabs without overheating the tabs and causing damage to the motor. Motors must be returned and received by GTSLOTS no later than the Wednesday of the week following the conclusion of the race event along with the completed motor status and race results report forms. No chemicals (example: Voo Doo drops, etc.) shall be added to the motor. (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:
This regional race will be running at 12 volts (Note: track power will be set at 11 volts for the N. America finals and the GTSLOTS regional races) PRIZES: Race organizers who have previously hosted a GTSLOTS Sideways or Racer Resin regional event will be given a special limited edition Revell/Monogram Gulf Livery Daytona Cobra, to be given as a prize to the first place finisher at your Grand National regional event. Approved regional race hosts who have NOT previously hosted a GTSLOTS Sideways or Racer Resin regional event can obtain this car to award as a first place prize for a nominal fee of $49. Approved regional race hosts can purchase additional cars at a price of $99 each (limit 6). See pictures below:
