Hello to everyone!Thank you for the informative thread.I've asked in the past but I would like to know for sure,since I cannot find clear anwers through the pdf ROAR and IFMAR regulations found in the Internet.Hopefully I can get some help from someone who does have contact(s) with people responsible for 12th scale racing within ROAR/IFMAR:

-Is 4WD allowed (Kyosho and others have used in the past)?
-Can alternative types of transmission to the rear axle be used(e.g. belt
drive)?

Thank you in advance for your responses.

Not sure about 4wd, but beltdrive is legal as far as I know since many people used the hyperdrive many years back.

You raise a very good point there.

IFMAR Rules say
5.1.14a Bodyshell dimensions in millimetres
Overall width Max 172 Min 155

NZ Rules say
Overall Width Maximum Including Body, Bumpers & Wings 172mm

And under ROAR rules it says
Width: Maximum 172mm

So can anyone clear this up, are the bodies most run illegal?

2005 ROAR rules state only that the car must not have independent suspension and one single-piece drive axle only. Also, only single speed drive systems are allowed.

So it looks like 4wd is not allowed, but there is nothing illegal about belt drive.

I have to use the stock axle for now as my IRS Axle was worn down at the bearings causing wobble. A new one is on order.

Any ideas how I can shim this properly?

Thanks
How could the tire be hitting the pod if the spur gear and axle is between them?
Maybe I don't understand the question. What car do you have?

The offset of a Parma rear wheel is not the same as a Jaco. You have to shim the Parma rears more...Both sides.

I know they are not flush and you need to shim them, but..
I still don't get how the right rear tire would hit the pod?
I could see the left rear hitting the pod, but the left does not have the threaded axle, it has the clamp style axle, which you would just unclmap and move out. No threading involved.
The right rear would hit the spur gear before getting close to the actual pod wouldn't it?
I guess I still don't understand what he is doing.

I should have said the left rear tire hits the pod. The stock axle comes with a thread on each end. The car was a 12L3 kit and is now a Q12 but in any case the stock axle AE 4551

oooohhhh, now I see.
Yeah, your screwed. j/k
I would think you have to get a new axle to run the Parmas, Or at least a left clamping hub if it fits to eliminate using the locknut.

Is it hitting the pod or actually the bottom plate on that side?

I have previously trimmed the bottom plates on the left side of all my 12L3/12L4s for tire clearance.

I put a clamping hub on and it works. I wasn't sure I could actually use that in place of the standard hub setup. It works so far.
