I have heard talk of people being close to ordering or maybe getting a car.

If you dont knot the rules for our class Dasmopar has them its pretty strait forward.

Anyways I thought I would get us chatting again.
Wow, what the hell was I doing when I typed that.

Anyways I will get Das to post the rules in here for a refresher.

I'm pretty sure I sent you and Ted a email with the rules in it awhile back.

Do we need a min. weight for the cars?

We are starting a class at Mikes hobbies in Dallas. We have been run what you brung so far but we are all in agreement on the rules we are working toward. Since there is only 5 of us it has worked so far. The only guy that is actually running inside the rules is smoking us. (rubber tire and 21.5) we have run silvercan, 17.5s with 1 and 2 cell
and 25.5s. Mixing foam and rubber. Experience and the boards are the great equalizer. Every race we get closer and closer to being all spec. And with all of us talking about the class and wanting it to grow, we are real cautious about keeping speeds equal. Sort of an honor system. Whne some of us ran with 2s and 17.5 we dialed throttle to 50-60%. Running indoors on carpet, the speed isn't a concern. We hope to be all in spec by the time of our Fall Classic race in November. And we hope to have enough (10) to be able to have the class actually enter the race. We have several people wanting to get into F1 but they are waiting to see if the class hangs around. We hope it does.

Hey guys. Hope all's well in T-Town. So, I've been wondering when the F1's will start up at Woodville. Have the rules been established? (104's, Pits, and 21.5's are what we discussed in the summer) What day are we running? Thanks!

Below are the planned F-1 rules for this years indoor season at the Woodville Mall indoor track in Toledo, OH.

If you have any concern or constructive comments, please reply.

Chassis rules for the Tamiya F104 class

All chassis platforms must be built per
the instruction manual. Altering their basic structure and
design is prohibited.

Tamiya parts only. No parts from other manufactures unless specified within this document.

Any Tamiya Hop-Up Option and spare part is allowed and legal as long as it is used in the way it was designed, and installed on the vehicle it was designed for.

It is strictly forbidden to re-engineer or modify the car in any way other than with Tamiya Hop-Ups or kit supplied accessories.

Chassis lightening (by means of milling parts) is prohibited.

Lightweight screws or adjustable turnbuckles that are made of aluminum, steel or Titanium that are made by other manufactures are allowed. i.e. any
screw or turnbuckle is legal.


The use of thin shims (available at most hobby stores and made available by Tamiya) to space out the slop or play in suspension arms, steering bell-cranks and wheel axles is permitted. Shimming the aforementioned components of the car in a way that alters the geometry of the car or its basic geometry design is not legal.

The use of O-Rings on shock ball ends and camber/steering links is allowed.

Changing the camber-link positions on the car other than the way it was intended is prohibited.

Camber links must be positioned in the mounting holes they were originally drilled for. Drilling new camber link holes is not permitted or legal.

Steering tie-rod linkages, on all chassis platforms, must be attached to the steering knuckle per the instruction manual. Drilling new holes to change
“ackerman” is not permitted. Raising and lowering the steering tie-rod with shims, on the steering knuckle itself to change bump steer is permitted.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


ELECTRONICS

Motors: Any ROAR approved 21.5 brushless motor. Adjusting of the end bell is not permitted. The Tamiya Silver can motor is permitted. It is forbidden to crank the timing on the 540-J motor physically or through the use of rare earth magnets.

ESC: Any ROAR approved Sportsman class speed controls. You may view the list here. sportsman ESC list <http://www.roarracing.com/?page_id=737>

Battery: 2 cell lipo not to exceed 6000 MAh capacity. Batteries must be hard case.


Any battery connector or direct hard wiring to the battery is allowed.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Car Body

All Bodies must be made for the Tamiya F-104


All car bodies must be painted and must be cut along the trim lines. You are not allowed to create extra vent holes for the purpose of ventilation or
performance enhancement. Leaving extra material below the trim lines of the body is prohibited.

All car bodies must use the wings that are supplied in the kit. Mixing and matching wings, between different body styles, is not allowed.

In the spirit of keeping the Racing
scale in appearance to the public all bodies should appear to be of a real F1 team or look like it could be a real F1 team. Vintage F1 team colors are permitted.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tires and Wheels

Spec tire: Pit Shimizu pre mounts (Not sure on the compounds yet)

Tire conditioners are allowed on tires.

It is not permitted or legal to drill extra vent holes on the vehicles wheels for the purpose of altering the performance and grip level of the tire. Enlarging the existing vent hole is also illegal.

Disassembling the pre-mounted tires and changing the insert is not permitted.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


If a driver finds a loophole within the rules, the exploitation will be deemed illegal at the discretion of the race director.

Most of us don't even have our cars yet because we are still in the Gas racing season but I think the indoor track opens this weekend or next. most of us are atleast two weeks away from being ready to race indoors.

I think we have atleast 5 to 7 so far. Thats not counting anyone who already has one. Thats just the new guys for this year. We talked to a few guys at the local indoor track today and some of them seemed to be excited to see them also. I'd like to see 10 of us racing F1 by late Dec. Then add in you out of town ringers and we have a series.

Just wanted to post a update.

Our biggest club race this year had 18 f1 entries and as always a few guys where missing. The racing is very good from the very top to the newest guys in the C main. Everyone has someone to battle with in their races. We have had days where the top 4 or 5 guys in the A main are all within 0.100 on their fastest laps. Todays non points race had less than a tenth between first and 2nd place at the end of the race. We have atleast 5 guys that can show up and win on any given day. Over all I'd call it a successful series!

So what format do you guys use for your club F1 races, UF1 rules or do you run short heat races? Also how much longer is your indoor season?
