Racing Regulations

"The wise man regulates his conduct by theories of religion and science. But he regards these theories not as statements of ultimate fact but as art-forms." J. B. S. Haldane (18921964)British geneticist, biometrician, physiologist, and popularizer of science.


 
To provide continuity, relative ease of construction, relative low cost control, and effective tech management, chassis development is limited to brass scratch built 90 degree in-line engine/gear mountings, utilizing stock, unaltered Parma 16D stock motors. 

Chassis must at all times maintain a minimum of 055" track clearance; all tires, commercial or hand built (no less than 3/4" dia.) must touch and roll , and present black sidewalls. 


 
Tires /rims shall not protrude more than 1/16" outside the plane of the wheel openings at any time when viewed from above. The plane of a wheel opening is located at the narrowest point on the fender when viewed from directly above 

No body mods, channeling, chopping, or body widening, or adding fender valences are allowed, and the body shall be stock thickness. Body configuration and roofline must be production stock. Front and rear windows supplied with the kit must be installed, though side windows may not be. 


 
Entire heads of driver figures (injected or resin mold) must appear higher than the lower window frame, A Cockpit or cabin tray concealing the entire chassis is required, and for open cockpit cars where the prototype carried one, a roll bar must be installed. 

All cars should bear race numbers and other markings reflecting prototype appearances. Guide flags shall not protrude beyond the plane of the nose when viewed from directly above. 


 
Each division or class has other specific rules particularly applicable to the class. 

For instance "Monza" rules for open wheel cars, all tires must be black and no less that 1 1/16 in overall diameter. Maximum rear tire width is , minimum f ont tire width is1/4". Maximum front wheel track is 2 7/8", rear track, 3". 

For "Clubsman" cars, rear wheel track must not exceed 2 13/16ths ".


 
For other sports car Divisions, rear wheel track of 3 \1/4 inches are allowed. NASCAR stock cars run with Parma Super 16-D motors to compensate for their additional weight of 8-8 \2 ounces which is about 1 to 1\2 ounces more than sports or GTO cars. 

For all classes or divisions, body eligibility is determined by Doug Haynes. 


 
A winning or competitive car is a reflection of the builder' s chassis engineering or designing ingenuity. Good car handling, not necessarily absolute speed, is the most important characteristic of a winning car since motor power is tightly controlled and equalized. Because body size, shape, weight distribution, affect individual car handling, most members build dedicated chassis for each of their cars. One eager member comes to the club every week with 60 different cars fully ready to race.
