Also must race atleast one race at each track to qualify for series end rewards.Also, if you do not want to chase the series, but like good racing, you can pay the tracks normal race fees and race, but you will not be included in the series points standing.

For some reason the MT class is hit and miss. We would like to see a solid 10 or so show up on a regular basis, but I guess it averages out to 4 or 5.

We are going to add the Slash SPEC class to the summer series events!!!!!
IF THE RULES DON'T STATE YOU CAN DO SOMETHING THEN IT'S NOT LEGAL
Slash Spec
CHASSIS
1. Modifications of any type to the chassis plate, lower braces, receiver box, battery brace and related parts are not allowed.
2. The battery must be placed in the battery tray. The foam battery spacer may be placed behind or in front of the battery when using a 6-cell battery pack, or removed when using a 7-cell battery pack. Cutting or otherwise modifying the spacer is not allowed.
3. The side nerf bars, front and rear bumpers, skidplates and body mounts may not be removed or modified.(THERE MAY BE AN EXTRA SCREW ADDED TO THE REAR BUMPER TO BETTER SECURE IT.)
SUSPENSION
4. Modifications of any type to the suspension arms, shocks, shock towers, hub carriers and related parts are not allowed.
5. The stock shock pistons must be used in their factory positions and may not be modified. The Traxxas Aluminum Shock Caps ( 2667 aluminum shock caps) are legal.
6. When refilled for maintenance, the shocks may be filled with any weight fluid. The shocks must be properly filled with oil.
7. The stock shock springs must be used in their factory positions. Springs may not be shortened or otherwise modified.
8. Spring preload may be adjusted using only the supplied spacers. Additional spacers may not be used.
9. Front toe-in and front and rear camber may be adjusted within the travel range of the factory turnbuckles and rod ends.
DRIVETRAIN
10. Modifications to the gearbox, transmission gears, slipper clutch, driveshafts and bearings are not allowed.
11. Each track must set a pinion rule based on what is best for the individual track. All racers must run the specified gear. Gears must be made available for inspection if requested by other racers or race officials. Spur and pinion gears are allowed to be after market replacements for the Traxxas.
12. The differential may not be locked or modified in any way.
BODY, WHEELS AND TIRES
13. The factory tires and wheels must be used and may not be modified in any way.
14. Softening compounds or other traction aids may not be used.
15. A Traxxas Slash body or aftermarket body specifically sold for the Slash must be used and may not be modified in any way other than the addition of decals or paint. The body must be mounted using the factory body posts. The body must be trimmed using the factory trim lines, and may not be modified in any way other than the addition of decals or paint.
ELECTRONICS
16. The original Traxxas XL-5 speed control and Titan12T motor must be used. In the event of motor or ecs replacement the Traxxas XL-5 and Titan 12T must be used. No other esc or motors will be allowed.
17. Aftermarket transmitters, receivers, and servos may be used.
18. Motor and Esc connectors may be changed or eliminated. (Note this may void any warranties from Traxxas)
19. The motor's label must be intact. Motor modifications of any type are not allowed.
20. Piezoelectric gyroscopes or other stability-enhancing electronic devices are not allowed.
TRANSPONDER
21. The transponder must be mounted beneath the Slash body, either on the body itself or on the chassis plate.
BATTERIES
22.NIMH, NICD 6 or 7 cell packs are allowed.
23.Lipo 2S are allowed and must add weight in the battery box only to equal the 7 cell weight.
REPLACEMENT PARTS
24. Only Traxxas original replacement parts may be used or aftermarket parts specifically noted in these rules.
25. The following Traxxas upgrade parts are legal for Slash racing: 2667 aluminum shock caps.
26. The following aftermarket upgrade parts are legal. RPM gear cover.
The idea for this class is to keep it spec and affordable. In the process of the year we may find other areas where an upgrade part or aftermarket part may be needed to make the trucks more reliable. Because of this additions may be added at any time. Upgrade suggestions must come from the participating tracks and be based on an unusual amount of breakage.

Default Spec Slash

David we run with most of the same rule that you have with the exception of cutting the stock tires to gain traction and to keep them cleaned out.

Last Sunday we had seven Slashes running on the track and had a blast!

Would you consider letting us run cut stock tires? We would be happy to show anyone that would like to cut theirs as we did!

Some are running the Proline tires also, which are heavier and cost more with no advantage.

I will try to get a group of guys to come from Memphis to race!

Thanks for considering the request,

Sean Jacobson

Sean, it all depends. If the other tracks want to allow it we will look at it, EXCEPT for the RC Pro National Championship races, we must follow there set rules to have our drivers eligible for the championship. In my opinion, I would like to stick to the true spec rules, but for the summer series events, I will talk with all involved. We want everyone to have a great time, that is the main thing!
