Could someone point me to the latest SCRRA stock car rules?

 

Thanx.

Didn't they change chassis and track width from 3.0" to 3 1/8" and allow some amount of add on spoiler to the bodies? Plus, I'd guess that the Retro Hawk is now legal in all classes that were restricted to TSR/Falcons before.

    Foamy,

       We did run a stock car race last year in a Zombie event and we did make a few simple changes from the original D3 rules.  The cars are now allowed to be a maximum width of 3 1/8" and a rear spoiler of 1/2" is also allowed.  No real SCRRA rules as such but basically just Anglewinder Coupes with a 4 1/2" LONG wheelbase and Nascar bodies. All the usual Coupe and Can Am wheel and clearance specs. Front tires at .750 diameter and .015 clearance and rear tires at .812 and .050 clearance.

 

 When the Nascars were running the body of choice was the Electric Dreams Mercury Cyclone and I spoke to Philippe and he is going to get Electric Dreams to supply some to BPR well before the October Boola Bash Nascar enduro on Saturday the 24th. The race is going to be on the King track and will be the first race on Saturday with F1 to follow.

 

 Nothing finalized yet but we're thinking either a 3 or 4 hour race with 8 teams and 3 or perhaps 4 or 5 drivers per team with the racers sorting out their own teams.

 

More to follow on this ASAP...........with over 3 months to go I'm certain we'll see a few new cars being built!

    A few more words here before the SCRRA starts a specific thread just for the Enduro.  No matter what the time duration (3 or 4 hrs) the time for lane changes will be 1 (one) minute. Working on the cars will be allowed during lane changes.

 

 Cars must keep the original chassis and body that it started the race with. All other parts may be changed.

 

 To keep from policing rear tire diameters the only rule governing this will be..........DON'T DRAG THE TRACK.  Any car found dragging will be immediately removed from the track and fixed. Could lead to some interesting strategies...................

 

  No qualifying necessary and we're thinking of having Concours determine starting lane choices................KISS!!  :)

   FWIW and for anyone thinking of building a Nascar chassis or running in the upcoming Enduro a little tip here.  We have found that the long Nascar bodies have a tendency to fold under in the rear unless supported by some kind of bracket or bracing.  The picture here shows some .032 piano wire bent to support the rear deck of the body and soldered to the motor bracket.

    In the past racers have used all sorts of other means to support the body such as piano wire and popsicle sticks taped to the inside of the body with success but I think the little brace shown here works best. If you do not run something to support the rear of the body you will be guaranteed to have the body wrap itself neatly around the tires!

 

    As mentioned there is no restriction on guide lead, just that the body must cover the guide. I checked out one of my old cars and the guide lead on the body that everyone uses, the Electric Dreams Mercury Cyclone is 7/8"

 

   Also the Nascar class restriction of a 4 1/2" Wheelbase will be STRICTLY enforced.  So all you new chassis builders out there with new ideas don't start thinking 4 7/16!!.................. :)

If anyone is looking for a 4.5 inch anglewinder PM me.  I have a never raced Russ Toy chassis that I can't use.
