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".

You havent been reading the 3hobby forum. Im one of the ones who wants Lolas with open engines etc. I detest 3-port Saloon racing and EFRA rules. My first post wasnt directed at you intentionally. It was a passing comment as I know ziggy runs in the BRCA Nationals sometimes. Throwing rules aside the work looks great and the car looks great. I dont agree with your theory on CF though. The nylon used today gives more and yes, while I agree, it could still break a leg it wont do so quicker than CF. Not going to argue about it. Just agree to disagree with you

I did say we were making them. I never specifically said I did at that time. But my dad and his friends did. I make the parts myself now but have been making model aeroplanes and parts since I was about 10. I noticed you said you wore out 4 blades cutting it. CF is hard to cut and does wear tools out fast but try gearing down the saw a little to run slower and keep constant water on the cut part. Should help you cut longer with each blade.

LOL You cant beat a bit of passion on the forum

I agree with you. I didnt join this sport to have rules thrown at me from all angles, i get enough of that at work. Thats what has happened since joining the BRCA. No 5 ports, this shells Ok this one isnt, cant use that radio, Thats the wrong size-colour. GIVE ME A BREAK

I am getting the fastest bloody engine I can find with the lightest car and highest downforce shell with the widest tyres and best radio equipment and drive it flat out until it breaks.

I dont give a toss about the rules. Who wants a race?

Cheers

looks we all agree on one thing then! who'd have thought.
Pull starts cant be used with lola bodies, as id imagine the plastic handle would pertrude into the shell as its so low.

I thought the thread asked about bodies available for 1/10 4wd Open class racing. I use the Parma Lola on my 235mm chassis and it runs great.

Also, about the tires on the 200mm cars. ROAR rules say the max width of the wheel/tire is 31mm.

Roar has a .12 open series and the tyre width is 31mm max. CRC make 35mm for Outlaw class

Ziggy - I suggest you refer to page 63 of the current rule book. It covers the rules for 1/10 scale On-road 4WD Open that you are calling Outlaw. It says the wheels/tires are 31mm. If you get the products from a source that are larger, they can be cut down to narrow the width to the ROAR legal limit. It is possible that you run in another association since you are in the UK. They might have a different limit than ROAR.

I have not try it, but SERPENT already imported that newer LOLA body that will FIT the 200mm TC with front shock towers installed (typical LOLA will not allow front shock towers installed, or the shock tower is very low profile...)
At the rear, you can add a adjustalbe rear up wings from 235mm Impact series...then pull it all the way up for massive downforce.........
