As I received it, the pans were part of the main plate.

Yes, they are legal.

I posted this in the another thread, but thought I would ask it here, since it is the IRRA rules thread!

I'm planning to build a copy of Dennis Samson's F1 chassis (very nice, Dennis)!

Regarding the shaker plate, is movement allowed in all directions, i.e. up, down, side to side, and front to back?

Thanks!

From Noose, in the other thread you posted in:

Shaker pans rock and yes, they are legal.

Justin, why don't you just use the legal S7 kit. You got your answer above on what could and could not be used from the original to make it into a legal IRRA chassis.

2 reasons, i have the FX kit, and i like the way it performs.....the above question was for the plate,,,im know onto the keys....its just an honest question, not to ruffle anyones feathers, just a serious question...
so can i use the uprights if i just solder them to the chassis? not using the keyholes? same with the guide?????

Sorry for the double post but to further clarify what i meant

You can use the main plate.

You can not use the "Eurosport"/keyed elements in the slots. Those are the front wheel uprights and lead wire holder/guide tongue locator.

it says in the slots,,,,,so could i file off the keys and use them outside of the slots and be legal??? once again im not asking to get under anyones skin, just so i can complete a legal build

Couldn't you have just bent up some wire uprights and soldered the front axle in place over the last week, instead of continuously asking the same question?

Even if you can do what you are asking there will be no strength in the joint and it will bend/break at the first bump. This is why the front uprights are keyed....for strength.

Based on decisions previously made concerning plates like this, you could do it but upon completion i would suggest you send some pictures to us to determine if what you built is legal.

I would agree with Don's point and the trouble you are going to go through may not be worth it in the end.

everyones favorite pot stirrer with another question........im sure someone will get fired up about it but here it goes anyways.............the body rules state::::: 15a. Severe raking of the body for aerodynamic effect is not allowed.........what would be severe raking? is there a degree of raking that is allowed???? of course everyone will think im being a wise guy, but im just seeing what the limits are to this.....in the ideal situation the bodies should be cut on the lines but i know some bodies dont have lines so the question remains.....

Fired up,no. Think it through,there is a maxium height in the back,a minium amount of grille in the front,TI-22 is the exception,the bodies that are allowed are all approved so this is a non point,someone might try to cut a TI-22 down,but the diameter of the front wheels would preclude even that. No find a different pot. Get busy building for Sat. Bill

example,,,,,but maybe my idea of severe raking is not to the same standard as others....thats why i ask if there is a angle or degree to which the cars CAN be raked

if you look close you can see the lines in the body


maybe my idea of raking isnt the same as others ,,,,who knows,,,,i have been wrong before
