1) Lexan interiors are permitted providing they came bulit-in as stock parts on the cars. An example would be a Fly Car Model "Racing" Saleen S7R. These cars came "box stock" with lexan interiors.
2) Motors: Any power plant may be used so long as the long can motors do not exceed 21.5K rpm @ 12V and short can/Mabuchi style motors do not exceed 22.4K rpm @ 12V.
3) Spec tires and wheels for this race will be the ScaleAuto 1:32 ProComp 1 sponge tire/wheel combinations. 1 set of rear tires/wheels for each racer will be provided to use for the Grand Am GT race.
I hope everyone realizes that this event is open to anyone who wishes to come race with us.If you have never had the opportunity to pit your racing skills against them "Boys from Jawja (Georgia)", this would be a great time to meet them. It has been a great pleasure for me to be able to race with them 4 times in this year alone. George, Mark, Jon, Jason, JayBird, Jay Hardy and the rest are quite simply some of the best racers in the world as well as the friendliest and most helpful bunch of guys ever!!!
On top of that, Alan Smith (do I have to remind y'all who he is ????) will be coming in from Tacoma to race with us. The cool thing for Alan is that he gets to concentrate on racing as I will be the "Race Director" for the weekend. Alan will be bringing a good selection of ScaleAuto cars as well as parts with him. If you want to come race but don't have a 1:24 ScaleAuto GT car, Alan will have cars available.
If anyone needs more information, please PM me here on SCI. See y'all soon!!!
Yes sir. Tried 'em on my NSR C6R also. Same results....WOW!!! BTW, Evan Zabowski (Dan's younger son) now owns the Chelsea Motorsports Park official lap record with a 6.317 with a 1:24 ScaleAuto Porsche 997 RSR. Evan put the lap up in the green lane. Mark's old record was 6.320 (although he ran an unofficial time of 6.020 with Slaughter's NSR Remington/Legends of Motorsports Audi R8.)
Just wanted to give y'all something to think about
...Roll Tide Vette in action, Mark will be in the mid 5's with it. The car is stupid fast.
The best I can run with it at George's is in the high 8.8s and not consistantly. George, Jon and Jason can take it down to the high 8.2s, Mark is in the 8.1s with it. This car is the fastest, smoothest 1/32nd car I have ever driven....and I can't come close to getting everything from it. It is much better than when it was at Barber in January.
Do you have a list of nearby hotels/motels for the July race?
I seem to recall you running the ROLLTIDEVETTE rather well in April JayBird!!! In fact, "The Old TwoCornDogs" ran all of his cars well . SO who are you teaming up with for the 1:24 ScaleAuto Race??? SouthernSlaughter? I told him a few minutes ago that I put a new wing on the Beemer just for him .
Another btw: I got the new 1:24 ScaleAuto Mercedes SLS from Alan. Although the weight is similar to the Jag's, it handles like the Porsche GT3 Cup cars. Hmmm ......
And y'all are gonna love the 1:32 ScaleAuto ProComp 1 sponge tires.

....has been, ahem, "tweaked" since. Plus I have a "JAYBIRD" 997, another new orange Corvette, a Coca-Cola 997 and a Scale Auto BMW....the last 2 I picked up at Hotslots in Urbana when I was up in Indiana/Illinois last week. The Hot Boiled Peanuts Team from Georgia will be ready!!!
Lawrence.....you have to add a Midget race at Kokomo, Indiana Speedway to your "bucket list". Second year I have attended....the final night of Indiana USAC Midget Week...phenomenal dirt track racing....the best little quarter-mile bull ring I have ever seen.
You SCI guys and gals who are near Kokomo are very lucky to have a facility like this. If I lived up there I would be in the stands every Sunday night.
I ran Scale Auto foamies when I raced at Fast Eddie's in Richmond, Indiana last year....very good tires on wood tracks.

In your Scaleauto rules it states that we're to use the 12/44 gear set. In looking at my Flying Lizard Pooch, it has the 10/44. Is that the stock set for the early production cars that came with the 21k motor? If so, do the newer cars with the sprinter motor come stock with the 12/44? No problem to buying a sprinter, just confirming the pinion.
The Flying Lizard and a few other cars come with 10:44
All the newer releases come with the SC-0025 Motor and 12:44 gear ratio.
Here we have run the SC-0012 motored cars 10:44 against the SC-0025 motored cars 12:44 and there is nothing to choose between them. However Lawrence did state he was using the SC-0025 only so 12:44 will be the ratio for all cars.
We allow you to flat spot the axle to locate the gear and rear wheels ( no really as important ) I recommend you do the gear this way you do not have to tighten down so hard, we sometimes see slipping gears, or stripped gear hubs flat spot the axle and it will never happen again.
