    BRM Challenge rules 2010

    Well time is flying by this year, and I have not had time to update the Challenge Rules yet.

    There will be a few changes allowed not documented in the Rule set here, but for the most part the Rules are the same.

    Only things I can see that will make a difference are the allowing of modification to the Porsche Chassis to fit the S-026SW wood track guide and the use of the S-033 black can race motor.
    Toyota's will be allowed in the Finals this year, but must run slightly narrower than Porsche and must be up to minimum weight of 180 grams.

    More soon but this gets you going.

    BRM-Slot National Final rule clarifications.

    With the BRM-Slot.it Finals only a few weeks away I would like to clarify a point or 2 on the BRM Rules.

    It is not and has never been legal to run drill blank axles, anyone found doing so will be excluded.

    This series is for BRM Cars ( Porsche ) and parts in STOCK condition. No cutting or modifying in any way is legal.

    No filing the front of the chassis for braid clearance.
    No modifying ride height of either Front or Rear axles.
    No removing flashing on chassis.
    All parts must be fitted in the stock position as designed by BRM.

    Exceptions, you may remove mirrors, and front wing-lets on cars supplied with them.
    You may bullet proof the car body preferably with Shoo Goo, you may also tape the rear wing end-plates to the side of the body.
    Headlight buckets must be fitted if the came with that particular model.
    Tow Hook may be removed, but the molding in the body must not be modified.
    Body screws and washers may be glued to each other to ease fitment. You may not use longer body screws or run with screws loose.
    You may not open chassis holes to create more body float, nor modify in any way body or chassis to create float.
    Only stock guides unmodified are allowed, you may not use more that one o-ring or a non stock o-ring, and o-ring can not be glued on.

    Either braid is allowed.
    Guide and Motor Shims allowed.
    Weight minimum is 180 grams using unmodified BRM weights.
    Magnet retaining strap must be fitted.
    NO MAGNETS allowed.




    The BRM Class should be easy to tech as it is basically for STOCK Cars, magnets removed, weight added to at least 180 grams minimum. Motor and tires changed, one Motor shim is allowed and recommended.

    When fitting the Motor shim you can not tighten the screws down tight as the motor now sits .6mm higher. You may use glue to hold in the screws as they can only be snugged down, or you may use BRM axle spacers to space the strap. You may not glue in the Motor. Tightening down the screws too hard will either break to Motor Mount posts, break the underside of the chassis, or break the Motor strap. Take care here to avoid problems in the Race.

    See you at the Races

    Agreed, but when you have 3-4 drivers that are very consistent and equal, the fella with the fastest car wins.

    To me the motors are not equal to each other,

    I may look at trying a plafit fox motor and seeing what the car will do then with these.

    As for the gears, BLAH - Threw them into the bin , as they were loud in the meshing, even after
    some cutting compound used. So threw in a plafit crown and pinion - Smooth

    Will let you know later on how the Fox Goes.

    Cheers

    While every motor will be slightly different.

    Plus may require a different gear ratio to get the best out of the Driver,Set Up, Car and Tires. we run BRM Cars every week and even with big differences in skill level of the drivers the cars are very competitive.

    When running BRM Races it is common to have less than 2/10th of a second fast lap between most of the cars.

    We have started using the Race Motor this year ( after 2 years with the Stock Motor ) and do find they last longer, and have stronger brakes.

    We find BRM Cars way closer to being equal than NINCO, or even Slot.it.

    Of course you have to set up the car, most important areas are gear mesh and truing the rear tires. Plus using the best BRM Gear Ratio for your Track and Driving Style.

    We have raced Magnet and now run non magnet, tuning with the BRM weights.

    When running with Magnets it was critical to measure downforce with a Magnet Marshal to level the field.

    The other area that can greatly improve control on BRM Cars is the Guide Shim and using the thinner guide when running on NINCO Track.

    Watch some of our BRM video's to see how close the racing is: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tYNOC9pYkk"]YouTube - BRM Regional Final[/ame]

    Hi guys.

    Gave this a go last week with another 7 guys, whom had all there cars set up with
    the same gear ratio, same engines, guide height etc etc.
    So you could say, there were 99% the same.

    While running laps around the 30 odd meter track, only to notice that there
    were some cars with a lot faster and more punch motors than others!

    Now were talking approx, on a straight that the car would end up around 1 meter in front of
    the other brm within a 8 meter straight.

    Now i purchased a new motor from the shop, installed it, only to find that this was also slower that a couple of other cars...

    So have now given up on running a championship with these due to motors not having the same specs. - Shame as i was looking forward to this.

    BTW - i also made the car that was the fastest on the track - so it was stock.

    P.s even tyres were the same height.

    Well Daytona was fun.

    The BRM Cars have now done over 48 Hours on the same motors and stock gears.
    Alan will continue this test next year to see how far BRM motors and gears will go before failure.

    We went through tires and a few rear axle bearings, plus completely wore through guides on 3 of the cars.

    Cars went further than last year, and all this with the General Public driving the cars.

    Next BRM Challenge Race will be in Florida at Phoenix Raceway March 13th.

    First BRM Endurance Series Race at www.132slotcar.us March 28th.

    BRM International Rules apply to all sanctioned BRM Races.

    Glad to hear your enjoying the BRM's

    The new rules and parts coming in the next weeks will hopefully address a few of the issues we have discussed when Racing BRM's hard.

    The guide shims allow you to adjust the guide depth for different tracks, which will give stronger brakes and allow you to drive deeper into corners.

    More news soon, looking for Commercial Tracks, Stores and Clubs to get involved with the BRM Challenge.

    Now off to Daytona.

    See you at the Races.

    Hi Alan, we here in New Jersey really enjoy racing the BRM car in stock form. We have raced them several times on both Carrera and wood/commercial tracks, and they perform great on both track types, with and without magnet traction. What a beautiful site they are when we have 6-8 lanes of these cars on a large commercial track battling it out! You should see the facial expresions on onlookers who usually race wing car or flexi cars! They never saw anything like a BRM real SCALE car on their tracks!

    looking forward to more BRM racing in '09 with both the NJ132 club and the C.A.R.S. Vintage Slot Car club here in New Jersey. We recommend these cars to anyone out there!

    Within the BRM Challenge Rules parts must be fitted as stock.

    So the weights can not be modified.

    Of course anyone can run however they want if not running to BRM Challenge Rules, but we intend to build Racing following their clear rules.

    Hopefully this will create racing where people do not have to continually fiddle and tweek to find the "Magic" Set Up.

    More time to race, less need to tune.

    See you at the Races

    When the weight becomes available can we reduce the size of said weight as long as it is in it's intended position?

    Boy you got to carry that weight!!

    Not trying to send you to sleep.

    Should arrive with the Toyota's which with a little luck will be released at Daytona Jan 24th.



    See you at the Races.
