SCALEXTRIC  GT3/JGTC   - RULES

 

Cars Eligible

 

Open to Scalex cars where the 1:1 car actually ran in the JGTC in Japan (not USA) - from 2000.  Scalex GT3  cars are eligible. SCX cars sometimes referred to as Scalextric (in some European countries) are not Scalextric cars for the purpose of this series.

 

Motors

 

Original motors only  - limited to Scalex 18,000 rpm black stripe motors - sealed.  Original gears as supplied with model to be used.  A blown up sealed motor can be replaced with an identical sealed Scalex 18,000 rpm motor

 

Interior

 

Ie. Interior cam be replaced with a 3D vac formed interior OR the original interior can be sectioned to allow placement of weight.

 Standard model glass must be retained.

 

Chassis

 

Front axle mounting and location cannot be modified in any way at all. (no low riders).  No brass tube.  Standard guides and braid only.  Hope you get the message.  Rear axle mounting must be standard using standard bearings as supplied with model.  Must maintain minimum track clearance 1/16”.

Rubber tyres only Scalex Tyres can be replaced with alternate as Scalex are now hard to get for some models.

 

Weight

 

Maximum weight - up to 120grams. (allowance of +3 grams)

 

General Conditions

 

At this stage the series is limited to Scalextric cars depicting vehicles that actually ran (competed in at least a qualifying session) in the JGTC as currently available - Skyline, 350Z, NSX, Supra – Ford GT-R and  Ferrari 430  Scalextric Porsche GT3’s are eligible along with any Scalex GT3 car including Aston Martin DBR9,Audia R8LMS and McLaren 12C,Jaguar GT3 and Bentley GT3.

 

Cars may be repainted.  Body parts must be mounted securely.  If they become dislodged during a bracket, eg. rear wing, they must be refixed before the start of the next bracket even if taped

 

No after market parts of any kind will be permitted.  Standard Scalex parts as fitted to original car only.  Bruce has one of each original car which will be used as basis to scrutineer all cars.  After market parts, even if Scalex, are banned.

 

Wheels and Tyres

 

Cars must run with standard plastic rims as supplied with model.  Tyres limited to rim width.

 

Usual rules about tyres not protruding outside bodywork – some leniency here as wheels are very difficult to remove from latest JGTC cars.  But must not exceed maximum track of standard car.

 

Race Procedures / Points

 

Races will be 12 minutes each. 4 x 3 minutes on Shelmore and 3 x 4 minutes on other tracks (what do people think of this?)

 

Usual points scoring system.

 

Motors will be sealed.  .  Any motor tampered with will result in the entrant being ineligible for points for that round.

 

Anyone moaning on race night or about the rules will receive a penalty.

­2020 V8 Supercars  

Body: Commodore or Falcon

Scalex Commodores and Falcons only.  If someone wants to paint a different livery on a Scalex body, that will be fine. I'd prefer as close to genuine liveries as possible, but poetic licence would be accepted.

Body posts may be trimmed.

 

 

Interior

Scalex Cars using black windows will not require an interior. 

 

Clear windows are acceptable as long as a 3d vac formed interior is also fitted. Before I make any specific rule about car body weight I'd like to weigh the standard body with the black windows and a body with clear windows and vac form interior to see how much difference there is, if any.

 

 

VX Commodores and AU Falcons will qualify and if the driver chooses to use the original tyres that came with those vehicles, they will qualify, but upgrading the tyres to the ones standard on later releases is acceptable (and recommended).

 

 

Motor

Will be 18,000 RPM Scalex or Fly knurled shaft silver can motor.

 

Chassis

Must reflect original ?specification? as provided by the original manufacturer. (i.e. freewheeling front wheels or fixed as per original.)  Front end may be modified to reduce axle ?float?.  Alternative bearings may be fitted front and rear although the axle height at the rear must be as per original manufacture. 

Chassis may be scrapped to provide clearance for the body to rock.

The motor cannot be lowered in the chassis

Minimum Ground Clearance will be 1.2mm

No other modifications permited.

If someone wants to try fitting an FG Falcon chassis to earlier Commodore or Falcon please discuss this first.

 

Wheels

Standard Wheels Only

 

Tyres

 Original  Scalex Tyres OR eurethane replacement only. 19.5mm min. diameter.

 

There will be a control tyre for the series, just as there is in the 1:1 scale V8's. Scalex tyres as fitted standard to all VY/VZ Commodore models and BA/BF Falcons will be the control class. If someone objects to this and wants to make a different tyre the control class, that may be possible as long as they provide each driver with a set of their proposed control tyre.  Cars fitted with non control tyres will be permitted to run, but not to score points.

 

VX Commodores and AU Falcons will qualify and if the driver chooses to use the original tyres that came with those vehicles, they will qualify, but upgrading the tyres to the ones standard on later releases is acceptable (and recommended).

 

Front tyres must be the same width as originally fitted to the car.

 

 

 

Guide Flag

As provided by the original manufacturer on the car as purchased.

 

 

Weight

No weight may be added to the underside of the chassis.

2020  Group C Sports Car Series

The introduction of the FIA World Sports Prototype Racing Championship for Group C cars in 1982 saw some of the fastest racing cars ever produced. The popularity of the Group C series grew to the point that it was almost as popular as Formula One and the cars almost as fast.

The coming of the Porsche 956 and 962 in 1985 saw this car dominate until the arrival of Nissan, Toyota and Jaguar.

In Europe, Porsche was instantly dominant, first with the 956 and then with the 962. Mercedes, in the guise of Sauber, and the TWR run Jaguars set out to beat Porsche, until a new 3.5-liter class was introduced in 1991. Nissan,Mazda and Toyota also built cars for the class.

With the world recession of the early 90's, manufacturer-based racing came to an abrupt end. Sports prototype racing in Europe died in 1992, to be followed in America at the end of 1993. Today, these cars and races are remembered with great fondness by most motor racing enthusiasts around the world.

 This Class is designed to allow all the Slot It Group C cars to compete. So these cars shall form the basis of the rules.

Rules:

The body must be an accurate 1/32nd scale representation of any car that raced in the WSR championship and IMSA series from 1982 to 1992 and complied with the Group C regulations.  Any colour scheme may be used but the car MUST have at least 3 racing numbers.  Bodies must be either injection-moulded 'hard' plastic or resin or fibreglass.  Vacuum-formed bodies are not permitted.  Appendages such as on the real car (e.g. spoilers and diaplanes) may be Plasticard or other lightweight material. Any resin body shall be of at least the same weight as a Slot It  when fitted with Interior and windows.

This Class is designed to allow all the Slot It Group C cars to compete. So these cars shall form the basis of the rules.
