Touring Car Rule

10.8 Bumper

The front bumper must follow the body contour and must be constructed so as to minimise injury that may result from being hit by a car. The bumper must be made from foam rubber or a flexible plastic material

235mm Rule

5.2
The front bumper must be fitted to the car to the same shape of the bodyshell and material as supplied in any standard kit car. The bumper must not protude outside the body nor shall it be cut down beyond the shape of the body. also constructed as to minimise injury that may result from being hit by a car.

Get a Grip u moron. Your quoting rules from totally different classes.
The bumper follows a Lola "contour", and would not cause injury.
It can flex, just not a huge amount.
Would you like to tell me what rules the original KYOSHO lola bumper that the carbon one was modelled on, break?

Glad im not racing at your club then, U seem like a total muppet.

Ahh now i see, N.I eh? That explains alot.

How you figure that out? 200mm Foam are run to touring rules and 200mm outlaw are run along with 235mm. Still have to follow the construction rules in the handbook regardless. I quoted both sets of rules for both classes.

Your not the first to run Carbon bumpers. We were making them 20yrs ago for 1:8th and I have seen the countless number of legs that got broke when people got hit by them. So if you think they wont cause injury then your the moron.

I wouldnt know. Dont run a Kyosho and never really had the need to look at one long enough to know.

Whats N.I. got to do with anything. We still run to BRCA rules. But regardless, my family are originally from Glasgow so I guess we both Muppets from Scotland .

But I should have made myself clearer. When I said it wasnt legal I meant for BRCA Nationals etc... nothing stopping you running it at club rounds if your club allows it.

well if you had bothered to look at the car, you would have seen a 5port Turbo, and outlaw pipe, and a Lola body.
Hardly the stuff of a Brca competing car.
I dont understand why you went to the effort of posting at all.
If weedy 3 ports, touring car shells, and anal regulations are your thing, then I guess the Brca Nationals are for you.

Regardless of the front bumper, IC cars are capable of breaking anyones leg.
Having a CF front bumper adds little to the issue.
Plastic bumpers at high speed would exhibit the same properties as a sheet of CF when making contact with human flesh.
The fact that the carbon is thicker than the plastic would probably make it safer.

I can only conjecture at how much fun your local must be if everyone was to consult the rule book on anything that someone didnt like the look of.
Nowhere in the BRCA rules does it explicitly rule out CF as its used to sandwich foam bumpers when using upgraded parts on the touring cars.

Next time I wont bother posting if all im going to get is some lamer quoting rule books and regulations to me.

You were making carbon bumpers 20years ago, when you would have been let see...... 7 years old.
yeah..... "Ok".

Somebody needs to take a pill. Relax, take a deep breath.

who need 32mm when you can get 35mm......? I thought we covered that on some other thread within the last 48 hours.....35mm are DA BOMB with GTR rear bridge and LOLA bodies on OUTLAW class....but again, it is ILLEGAL to use on major race, but should be OK for local club race...

www.ashfordhobby.com selling it for $15 a pair....
