I can't, they are not mine, they are Ross's photos...he is a pro photographer so it's a little sticky...

You can ask him yourself, he usually posts on his web site but he has not put them up yet. You can find him at:

Indoor Carpet Oval Legend Rules
These our Pin Shop Hobbies indoor carpet rules for our new indoor Legends class for the winter season.

IT IS NOT LEGAL!!! You may wish to change some rules to suit your
local racing, but remember– once you start changing the rules it is very
hard to stop.
R/C LEGENDS are of a strong, simple design to create a
class of racing that is inexpensive, yet challenging enough for fun racing
and if the rules are kept the same everywhere, racers will be able to go
from track to track easily.

The reason for the development of R/C LEGENDS cars, and these rules
is to create inexpensive racing for beginners and experienced racers alike.
The whole idea is to put racing back to driving skill and care in car setup,
rather than money for the latest technology, the expense of which drives
most racers out of r/c racing.
We suggest setting up R/C LEGENDS racing with a separate class for
beginner drivers. They should be allowed to do almost nothing to change
the car. That way they will spend their time taking care of their car and
Learning how to drive better, instead of shopping for more motors and
batteries to go faster (and crash harder).
We realize that on certain tracks, gear ratios and tire compounds could be
changed to make the cars go faster. However, the most important item to
Remember is that we are trying to create an even and fun class of racing.
Keeping the legends stock will give beginners a good, inexpensive place
to start ( and stay if they wish) .
1. The first rule is that if the rules do not specifically state that you can do
something, YOU CANNOT DO IT.
2. Absolutely no changes to the configuration of the chassis or cutting on
the chassis parts. No replacement parts of graphite or other higher tech
3. Any location of receiver and speed control on top of the battery plate is
Allowed. Steering servo may be mounted on the front axle plate, or under
the long battery tray.
4. No changes in the steering blocks, axle ,or springs. Shims are allowed
on springs to stiffen front ends. May also add the front kingpin brace
( 5240) to help prevent front axle breakage in severe wrecks. You may
put a washer behind the e-clip on the front axle to stop it from pulling thru
the steering block.
5. Original front steering rods can be bent as needed, if the steering servo
is mounted on the front axle plate. Double lock collars are allowed on each
side of the steering linkage to prevent slippage.
6. Ball bearings allowed anywhere on the car.
7. No changes allowed to rear axle or differential. No ceramic or carbide
diff balls or drive rings allowed. No 64 pitch gears– must use original
type 81 tooth 48 pitch diff gear. No lightweight rear axles. No thrust bearings
allowed, except one in the diff assembly. Steel pinions only.
8. You may change the left side (setscrew) hub to 5313 nylon/aluminum
Hybrid hub only, or use 1/4 “ spacer on the left side with the original
5311 hub, and 5309 narrow diff hub to narrow the rear track. Reducing
the track width of the car can increase rear traction if needed.
10. Only genuine R/C LEGENDS bodies are allowed as replacements
NO changes allowed from trim lines, except for 1/4 “ tolerance around
Body must be painted & all windows clear or cut out. It is legal to reinforce
the inside of the body where the side posts go thru with tape or
scrap lexan from the wheel cutouts.
11. No rollover or stiff antennas allowed. Antenna may be mounted inside
the body for small tracks where radio range is not a problem.
12. Only Legends kit tires or legends/spec tires on factory
wheels are allowed.
13. Tires must be mounted in the direction shown in the kit instructions
( No reversing front tires).
14. Only 540 Hand out Motors allowed at a cost of $10.00 every 4 weeks = 2.50 per week.
14b. Motors are available for purchase for $10.00 for practice only. HAND OUT MOTORS MUST BE USED TO RACE.
14c. RJS5248 Legends motor heat sink allowed. Keeps motor running
cooler and last longer.
15. Must use 3800MAH batteries only. NO MATCHED CELLS
16. Must use original equip. pinion gear ( tooth 48 pitch)
18. REVERSE is not allowed
19. Races will be 5 Minutes
20. Track size: R/C LEGENDS can be raced on any size R/C track, oval
or road course. We recommend that if you’re setting one up, make the
straightaway’s fairly short so , that driving the turns is more important
than top speed.

All times are GMT -7. It is currently 10:12 PM.
