CURRENT AARCMCC IC RULES.

These rules must be read in conjunction with the General Rules
1. 1/8th IC ON-ROAD TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
1.1 The engine may have a total capacity of not more than 3.5 cubic centimetres/0.214 cubic inches. No tolerance allowed. Each individual car must not produce more than 85 decibels, measured at ten (10) metres distance and one (1) metre high at full throttle. AARCMCC definition of a noise level is always final.
1.2 The fuel tank, including filter and fuel pipes up to the carburettor may hold a maximum of 125 millilitres/4.23 fluid ounces. No loose inserts allowed. Any tank found to be illegal (over 125 millilitres/4.23 fluid ounces) after a heat or final shall be removed from the car and inspected for a second time after an initial ‘cool down’ period of fifteen (15) minutes. This ‘cool down’ period is only necessary in the case of temperatures above 20 degrees C / 68 degrees F.
1.3: Overall dimensions:
Wheel base 270 - 330 mm/11-13 in.

The bumper must be made from a flexible material with all corners and sharp edges rounded off. The contour of the bumper will follow the contour of the body with which it is being used. At no point may the bumper protrude more than 5 mm/0.20 in. in front of the body.
1.9 If a rear bumper is fitted, it must finish no more than 10 mm/0.40 in. behind the rear wheels.
1.10 If a rollover bar is built in, it must be placed behind the driver or just behind the imaginary driver’s position.
1.11 The aerial must be made from a flexible material in such a manner that it will bend completely under the weight of an inverted car. Metallic aerials must have the free end protected.
1.12 Bodies must be a one-eighth scale authentic reproduction of sports cars or prototype cars in full scale racing participating in FISA's, IMSA's or CANAM's official sport classes. There will be an allowance of 10% tolerance in all dimensions.
1.13 Only bodies that are recognised and approved by IFMAR will be allowed.
1.14 The body must be made from a flexible material and painted properly.
1.15 A realistic driver's figure (minimum helmet and shoulders) made to l/8th scale and painted in a minimum of three (3) colours must be fixed at the normal place in the body. The head may not be amputated to make way for the fuel filler cap or any other element. The driver need not be fitted under a closed body.
1.16 All bodies must have the front and rear sides cut out for the wheels if the original was so designed. The radius of the cutout must not exceed the tyre by more than 13 mm/0.5 in
1.17 The windscreen must not be cut out. In closed bodies, a hole of maximum 6.5 square centimetres/1 square inch for cooling is allowed to be cut out in the front of the windscreen. The windscreen may be painted in a realistic transparent colour.
1.18 Side windows and rear window may be opened.
1.19. No wheels, tyres or rims of the car may extend outside the bodyshell, as viewed from above.
1.20 Cut-outs in the body that were not in the original full scale version will be allowed for the following:
l - The cylinder head and air filter must follow their contour and have a maximum of 10 mm/0.4 in. clearance on all sides
2 - The aerial hole will be no larger than 10-mm/0.4 in. in diameter
3 - The radio switch hole will be no larger than 13-mm/0.52 in. in diameter

Maximum width 267 mm/10.5 in.
Maximum length 77 mm/3.1 in.
Maximum height 191 mm/7.6 in.
Maximum angle 45 degrees.
1.23 Fuel:
Fuel may only contain Methanol, oil/lubricant and nitro methane (with a maximum of 25% measured in volume). To implement this rule, Organisers will provide the appropriate Serpent/EFRA fuel check system at Technical Inspection. Random fuel tests will be made during the entire championship. Samples and counter samples will be collected for analysis and any competitor found to be using any substance other than those mentioned above will be disqualified and any race result obtained will be null and void. Further punishment to be determined by AARCMCC, such as a ban from future racing.
1.24 The minimum weight limit of the cars is 2500 grams/5.51 pounds. The weight limit will be checked with the cars being ready to race but with empty tank and without timing transponders. The weight will be checked by a set of digital electronic scales and can be done at any time during the meeting, i.e. before the start of a heat, sub-final or final or after the end of either. An approved test weight must be provided for checking calibration of the digital electronic scales.
1.25 The car shall be measured for the width by placing it on a baseboard equipped with two side rails of 25.4 mm/1 in. in height spaced 267 mm/10.5 in. apart, constructed in such a way that the car can roll freely between them. Baseboard and rails must be constructed of high quality material, suitably stiffened to prevent distortion. The car must roll freely between the rails with any steerable wheel set in the straight-ahead position, irrespective of the compression or extension of the suspension.
The car shall be measured for length and height in a similarly constructed box of internal dimensions 637 x 267 mm/25 x 10.5 in. which includes provision for checking the maximum height. Measurement of the wheel base may be made by simple measurement of axle centre distance but the Race Director should be prepared to make more exact checks in case of doubt or protests. It is suggested that the wheels are removed and the wheel spindles firmly placed on V-blocks whilst accurate measurements are made.
It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure that his car complies with the regulations at all times it is on the track and the organiser may check any car, at any time during the championship, for compliance with the regulations. On checking immediately after a race, if a car is found to be under the minimum weight or has incorrect dimensions, positive proof of race damage may prevent disqualification.
1.26 The maximum carburettor size will be 9.00 mm/0.35 in.
1.27 Technical restrictions:
Not allowed: 4 wheel brakes (no independently controlled braking on the front wheels is allowed)
Liquid cooled engines
Hydraulic systems
More than 2 servos
No more than 3-speed transmissions.
1.28 Driver Aids - The use of traction control devices, active suspension devices and any steering control aided by gyroscopes/’G’-force sensors is strictly forbidden. Sensors are only allowed for the purpose of passive data recording and not for adjusting the performance of the car whilst in motion. It is the object of this rule to ensure that the AARCMCC sanctioned events be a test of driver skill.

1 - The lower finals up to the 1/4 final will not be interrupted due to a wet track or rain.
2 - In the event of rain during the 1/4 final, if 50% of the race has been run before the rain, the race is declared. If rain falls before 50% of the race has been run, the results will be kept from the moment of stopping which will be the previous lap when the leading car crosses the finishing line. The new start will be given for the time which remains to complete the final. The two results will be added to give the final and definite placing’s. If the second start cannot be given for any reason, the results from the first part will be used as the final and definite placing’s.
3 - In the semi-finals, if 75% of the race has been run before rain commences, the race is declared. If rain falls in the first 25% of the race, a total re-run will take place. If rain falls between the 25% and 75% mark, the total of the two (2) combined legs will be added together.
4 - In the event of a semi-final being interrupted in this way, the top three (3) from each semi-final will advance to the final.
5 - In the event of rain falling before the 25% mark where a complete re-start is required, drivers will be allowed to undertake maintenance on their cars.
6 - MAIN FINAL - If 75% of the main final has been run before rain commences, the race is declared. In the event of the main final being interrupted by rain where the two results will be added together (i.e. after the 25% mark), drivers may make repairs, re-fuel and change tyres before the re-commencement of the main final.

Each car's individual official time will start when the car passes the timing system for the first time. When the first car completes the first lap, all official timing not yet activated will be started.
SUB-FINALS AND FINALS
6.2.4 An audible warning will be given in English language at 1 minute and at 30 seconds.
6.2.5 From 30 seconds until 3 seconds the cars may be placed in the starting boxes. If a car is not in the starting box at the 3-second mark, it must start from the pitlane after all cars have started officially.
6.2.6 From 10 seconds until 3 seconds, time is counted down in English language, second by second.
6.2.7 At 5 seconds, the starter will lower the starting flag and at 3 seconds. the flag will be down, touching the ground. At this time, cars must be released by the mechanics who will all step back behind the hold line. The cars must remain in the boxes, no part of the car touching the starting line.
6.2.8 From 3 seconds, the counting stops and the start signal will be given by the starter between 0 and 5 seconds. If the grid is not to the satisfaction of the starter, he may command a re-start, beginning the count down from 30 seconds.
6.2.9 The official starting signal will be audible by means of a horn operated by the starter. This signal will also start the timing systems.
6.2.10 Early starts - ALL FINALS ONLY.
Early start (i.e. any car touching the starting line) will be penalised with the loss of one lap. This penalty is issued by the starting official or the time-keeping official and has to be announced immediately after the start. The penalty will be marked on the result sheet.
6.2.11 Under no circumstances will the race be stopped due to a jumped start.
6.2.12 Only the Race Director may interrupt the race and order a restart in the event that he considers the starting procedures or the start were not carried out correctly.
6.2.13 DELAYED START - As long as the starter has not called the cars to the starting line, every participant of the semi- finals and the final may request a delay of 10 minutes for repairs on his car. The delay will be granted only once for each semi-final and final. The track shall be closed to all cars during the delay period
6.3 MARSHALLING
6.3.1 Marshalling shall be provided by the racers. The Race Organisers will provide 2 designated fill-in marshals to cover unforeseen eventualities. After each heat the participants in that heat will place their cars into impound and assume assigned marshalling positions for the following heat. No other person is allowed on the track (except officials) while the race is in progress.
6.3.2 When there is a break, staggering of heats or a change in the running order of heats, any driver that is responsible for marshalling will be properly notified either in person or through his States Representative and/or Race Director.
6.3.3 Any person not marshalling or providing a qualified marshal shall lose their fastest qualifying time.
6.4 TECHNICAL INSPECTION
Only vehicles which conform to all regulations will be accepted for racing. The cars will be examined and, if the car conforms to the rules, the chassis and the fuel tank will be marked. At any time, the Race Director may ask the competitors to present their cars to the Technical Inspector. Random inspection will occur on the start line for numbers, tyres, wings and chassis.
No race will be delayed because of non-compliance by a competitor. At the completion of each heat all cars in that heat, whether they finished or not, must be presented for technical inspection. Cars which are not presented for technical inspection at the end of a heat will be disqualified from that heat. Any race damage will be taken into account. At the end of finals, all cars will be impounded and may be inspected for engine size, fuel tank capacity, etc.
Any infringement concerning engine, fuel tank and weight will cause disqualification from a driver's best qualifying heat or a final. A second infringement concerning any one of engine, fuel tank or weight, will cause total and immediate disqualification from the entire event. Any infringement, other than those concerning engine, fuel tank and weight, will cause disqualification from that heat or final.
All cars must be fitted with a clutch, a braking system and a homologated exhaust.
The engine and fuel tank may be checked at any time.
The volume of the fuel tank will include all fuel piping and filters up to the carburettor.
Following method of measurement will be used:
- pinch off pressure lines
- fill the fuel tank completely
- remove fuel pipe from the carburettor inlet
- connect a calibrated syringe to the fuel line which has been disconnected from the carburettor and pull all the fuel into the syringe. The amount of fuel removed by the syringe will be considered as the total content of the fuel system.
* Only one car per driver will be accepted.
* The chassis plate and the fuel tank of each car will be marked with the competitor's number.
* Only one chassis may be used for all qualifying heats and finals. The only exception to this rule will be in the case of a broken or bent chassis which may be changed with the Race Director's approval. The new chassis must be presented to technical inspection for marking before re-building the car.
6.5 FREQUENCIES
In the case of two drivers using the same frequency and qualifying for the same final, the higher placed driver may keep his frequency and the lower placed driver must change. The time allowed for frequency change will be 10 minutes. The lower placed driver who cannot or will not change his frequency may not take part in the final for which he qualified.
If a driver must change his frequency before the start of a semi-final or a final, due to an organiser's error, he will be allowed 10 minutes. If a driver finds his radio defective or has made an error in the selection of his frequency at the start of a final, the race will not be delayed.
For the entire duration of the event, the frequencies in use by all drivers will be known only by the Race Director and each individual driver.
All frequency changes must be authorised by the Race Director before the change is made.
The organiser shall not display any driver's transmitter frequency on any heat sheets, result sheet or race schedule to preserve the security of the frequency control systems. Each driver in the main final shall be permitted to change his frequency before the start of the race. Only the Race Director is permitted to know the frequency used by the main finalists.
6.6 CAR NUMBERS AND LAP COUNTING TRANSPONDERS
Only the numbers supplied by the organiser will be used on the cars.
Each participant is responsible for attaching the lap counting transponder to his car. During qualifying, any car starting without a lap counting transponder will not be counted. If a lap counting transponder fails or falls off during the heats, the vehicle will be timed and counted manually, if possible. In this case, the Race Director will verify the results and his decision will be final.
During the final, any car without a lap counting transponder will be counted manually by a manual back-up system. Under no circumstances will a heat or a final be re-run due to a car not having a lap counting transponder or failure of the same. This also applies to a car not having the correct numbers and placement of these numbers.
6.7 FLAGS
Start - green flag or national flag
Finish - chequered flag for final only
Blue - The car which is blue flagged must allow the car behind him to pass.
Yellow - Danger on the track - slow down
Black & white - Official warning to the car which is flagged (diagonal)
Black - The car in question must stop immediately in the pits
Green - Track open
Red - Track closed. All cars must stop immediately.
The black and white diagonal and the blue flags are recommended but are not compulsory.
All flags are under the direction of the Race Director who can delegate and authorise their use.
6.7.1 USE OF THE BLACK FLAG
- Drivers who impede the progress of other participants
- Unsportsmanlike racing
- Participants driving in a manner deemed to be dangerous by the Race Director
- Cars judged by the Race Director to be in an undriveable or dangerous condition. These cars, after the repairs have been carried out, may be allowed to resume.
- Cars which lose their bodies or silencers must immediately stop and carry out the necessary repairs after which they may restart
- Cars which have been black-flagged may re-enter only with permission from a Race Official.
6.8 RACING REGULATIONS
6.8.1 PROTEST AGAINST A COMPETITOR OR THE ORGANISER
Protest must be entered by the driver/Team Manager/State delegate, in writing, within 10 minutes after the display of the result or after the incident it concerns, with a deposit of $50 AUS. The time of display of the result will be written on the result sheet. The deposit is forfeited if the protest is not upheld and the deposit is returned if protest is justified. Protests may be handed to the Race Director or an AARCMCC Official. Protests are processed by the Race Director and, if necessary, by the Jury. Appeal to AARCMCC may be made. AARCMCC is not obliged to handle such appeal. Deposit returned if protest is upheld.
6.8.2 REQUESTS FOR LAP COUNTING CHECKING
Requests do not need to be written and need no deposit. The driver/Team Manager/State delegate will show to the Race Director the time-lap sheet in question (the one given or displayed by the organiser) and will indicate where he thinks an error has been made. The Race Director will resolve the problem by checking with the second lap counter and, if necessary, with the manual record of stops. The audio/video tape may be used as a last resort, if necessary, for the final result. If the request is justified, the result will be modified immediately and the Race Director will advise the protestor, in writing, of the result. After checking, if the protestor persists with his request, he will have to present a written protest within 10 minutes, including a $50 AUS. deposit.
6.9 PENALTIES AND SANCTIONS
During finals, participants will be allowed to change the bodies of the car with the authorisation of the Race Director, providing the bodies are of the same type and painted in the same colour scheme. In the event of a different body being fitted to the car, the Race Director must give his permission before the participant re-enters the race.
Any illegal modification or change made to the car which is found during the technical inspection at the end of the race will automatically entail disqualification of the participant.
EXCEPTIONS: Tolerances allowed in technical inspection for fuel tanks
Any damage incurred during a heat or final will not entail a forced stop or disqualification of the participant except in the following cases:
- loss of a body (the spoiler does not count as part of the body)
- loss of the silencer or its ability to silence the engine
- a car that becomes dangerous or undriveable.
The car in question may re-start after the repairs have been affected.
Any car which, by the fault of another driver, is damaged or obstructed during a heat or final cannot, under any circumstances, be allowed to re-run in another heat.
All participants must strictly observe the instructions given by the Race Director, Jury and Referees. The bad sportsmanship and behaviour of any competitor, even outside the official race meeting, which could injure the image and promotion of the sport, may become the object of an official, national or international sanction.

2 - the Referee himself announces Warnings and instructions. He will keep a record of the warnings and instructions used (Referee's notes). Three successive warnings lead to disqualification (black flag).
Instructions issued by the Referee must be observed immediately. All announcements must be made in the English language. Warnings will be posted on the result sheet.
3 - Reasons for warning or instruction will be announced in the English language at time of issue. Further explanation, if necessary, due to language difficulties, will be given to the driver or the Team Manager at the end of the race.
4 - Under no circumstances may a warning or an instruction issued by the Referees lead to the interruption of the whole race.
5 - During the event, only if all three Referees agree, they will have the authority to black flag a driver and/or a whole team, if one member of that team is positively interfering with the racing of another car in the event.
6 - Appeals to the decision of the Referee must be addressed to AARCMCC in writing. AARCMCC is not obliged to act on such a complaint.
7 - The AARCMCC Referee has the right to use his discretion to issue a penalty instead of a warning for any serious infringement of the rules.

There was vote a few meetings ago with regards to using 30 mm rear tyres on touring cars,which was passed by the nswrcrcc.

Did you get anymore feedback on that vote from other clubs? and will it be part of the Aarcmcc rules for future meetings/champtionship rounds?

Anthony,

A question re. the following rule.

"Fuel tank capacity to be 75.00cc including all fuel tubing, filters, etc. No loose inserts allowed inside tank. "

Why no loose inserts, eg Silicon fuel tubing? It would seem to me to be the easiest and cheapest way to rectify an oversize tank which would most likely be only a few cc's due to manufacturing errors.

I understand it inherited from the other scales but i've never understood the reasoning behind it.

Tyre width voting closes 8th June 2002, results of this vote will be advertised on 9th June 2002.

Fuel tank capacity. The reason no loose inserts are allowed is that in the event of someone running an oversized fuel tank, it does not give that competitor the ability to secretly slip an insert into the fuel tank prior to end of Race Scruteneering. The simplest and easiest way to decrease the capacity of a fuel tank, is to heat the tank and depress the sides until the capacity is legal. However there has been the odd time where due to the discretion of the race director and Scrutaneer, an insert may be placed in the fuel tank, however it is up to the competotor to make sure that the Tank size is according to the rules.

When racing in a sanctioned event, the competitor should be awware of the rules, and should make sure that his car confirms with these rules prior to the first scrutaneering. When a competitor fails scrutaneering, he does so because he has not complied with the rules.

I have never been pinged at scrutaneering, simply because I make sure that my car complies, read the rules comply with them, thats how easy it is.

regarding liverpool and asrmac rules.

i recently bought 20% nitro fuel becouse there was no 16% trinity fuel left in sydney for another 5 weeks. can i use the 20% nitro fuel for regualr moorebank meets? i noticed a few of the 200mm touring drivers use the 20% stuff, (stuart grant) can i still race or is it the case that i don't get points if i race with 20% nitro?

custom model cars had no 16% left and i'm not gonna put crappy fuel in my car.

so can i still race at morebank? i just don't get any points right??

Hi There.

I was wondering if there have been any changes to whats here in the rules, and if and what are the rules regarding Staium Trucks here in Australia.

Any info would be great.

If any one needs copies of the AARCMCC electric section rules, please e mail me at Peter Ellis
Contact, no changes have happened since mid year, on road will be updated soon and sent to the affiliated clubs before the 2006 season starts.

Unfortunately, the server that the AARCMCC web site was on has thrown a rod and the person who set it up is working on recovering and rebuilding the site.
