Default Regs for f1 racing in oz

Hey guys I ws wondering what regs clubs are using around oz as our club is starting a f1 class.
On Sunday we had 8 f1 on the track and was good.
Looking to see what other clubs are running
Eg chassis mods eg fgx top arm conversion to tie rods
After market chassis
Motor limits
Timing on esc and motor
Weight limits
And whatever else can be mentioned or advised.

Cheers

Most clubs are runnning motors down to a 17.5, but 21.5 is also popular.
I dont think any clubs really run any restrictions on hopups,

But a tricked out F103 FTW

Edit : it would be great to have a standard set of rules so they could be included at bigger race meetings, i would love to see a 30 car F1 field.

So far there are really not many rules.
At the moment SMA and WSRC run 17.5 or mini system but SMA will be going in the direction of USF1 where it is 21.5 blinky esc and rubber tires.

It would be really good to have esc, motor and etc regs.
I think it would be awesome to have 20+ f1 cars turning up and running.
We just had a meet Sunday just gone and we had 8 f1 cars running

Boronia (BRCCC) has probably the biggest f1 following in Victoria. Rules are Tamiya chassis only (bit of a gentlemens agreement to run f104's) and silver can motor. unrestricted hopups.

Templestowe (TFTR) is starting out with f1 this year. any chassis allowed. silver can or 21.5 blinky allowed.

Few of the other clubs do have f1 but unsure of numbers or rules.

I and a few others have discussed with the President at SMA re initiating the US F1 Series rules.. I think they would cover most if not all cars .. If for instance the motor strength affects FGX for example we might all agree on 17.5 untimed.. thats an option but it would be good to see a unified class .. Perhaps bring in a class for F201's as outlaw too I know I sure would love to race mine again...

These are the current rules for US F1

F1 ( Formula One )
Motor : 21.5 ESC : non boost setting... ROAR list Tires : Rubber only, F1 scale Body : F1 scale front & rear wing Width : 190mm maximum Battery : 2 cell lipo Drive : 2 wheel Rear
Here is the web site

Rubber tires is a must, only fags run foams

I like the US F1 rules, it will be able to bring everyone into a even playing field. Even those wishing to get into F1 have an easier choice with tires, motors etc. Limiting the width to 190mm is excellent as well, it stops all the Tamiya guys running studily wide cars.

It would be great to get national regulations that way we could possibly run big meets and etc.
It would be great to get racers from all over the country together at the one event

if we run tamiya rules then all the guys who have the fgx wont be able to run....
so we said any rear wheel drive only f1 chassis....

this is where we are at.....
any rwd f1 chassis (limit hop ups to car manufacturer???)
motor any 21.5 brushless motor (timing on 0??)
any esc set to non boosted blinky mode with 0 motor timing
rubber tires only
max lipo mah 6000
no tire additives allowed

yet to decide on weight restrictions
or fixed gear ratio

hope this helps
