Maximum Wing height 38mm. Bodies should be cut to the cut line where available and have a minimum or 1mm vertical edge at the front of the body.
Chassis;- Any U.S.R.A. Approved, unmodified pressed steel production chassis (2 or 3 piece) from the following manufacturers - Parma, Champion, Slot Works, JK Products, Mossetti, Proslot.
Pin tubes must be in the original locations and may be floating or solid. Pin tubes must be Straight and be located at 90 degrees to the centerline of the chassis. They may not be located or bent to minimise or modify chassis movement in any way. . No pin tube or attachment is allowed to any other part of the chassis to either brace the pans or centre section or modify pan Movement
Front wheels;- Minimum 12.7mm diameter. 0.8mm wide. Wheels must be vertical, they may be entirely made of rubber or must have the outer portion of the tyre made from rubber.
Front Wheels / axle / stub axles must be located in the original axle holes. There is no requirement for the front wheels to be mounted on a one piece front axle, wheels may be mounted on pins if desired, but must locate through the original axle holes. Wheels must be located on the outer face of the front wheel pillar blocks/mountings within 6mm of outer edge of chassis.
A small amount of material may be removed from the inside of the motor bracket to correctly locate motor but the outer profile of the motor bracket (if intrinsic in the deign) must remain unaltered.
Motor & or rear pillar block bracing is allowed. However all must be located BEHIND the centre line of the motor shaft and strictly within the confines of the chassis.
The Minimum rear axle height (when measured from the underside of the chassis to the top surface of the rear axle) is 8.5mm.
Soldering or gluing of additional fittings of any kind may not be attached in any way to the standard chassis to facilitate Lead wire attachment. However a piece of lexan or tape across the opening in the centre section to prevent lead wires dropping is acceptable providing it does not modify chassis movement.
Lead may be attached to the top of the chassis to adjust balance and weight distribution but in no way must this adjust or be seen to modify chassis movement.
The scrutineers decision on all above matters is final.
