A proxy drag race will be held at Nitro Slots on Oct 1&2.

Here is some of the class info:

TJ/M t-jet modified Modifications are 5.5 ohm armature. Any ceramic magnet allowed. One traction magnet, any motor brushes(no springs), any gears, any wheel and tire combination. Weighted front wheels allowed No braids or shunts. Copper or silver chassis allowed. "NO QUADS"'. Now including Johnny Lightning and Auto World Ultra-G chassis. Minimum Weight 20 grams. Maximum Weight 25 grams. Dash CHASSIS PERMITTED

AFX/S AFX & MagnaTraction Stock armature, per chassis(i.e. 14.5-ohm for magna-traction, 5.5 ohm for non-magna-traction). Slip on silicone tires of stock diameter. O-rings may be substituted for front tires. stock brushes per chassis, no springs. Stock magnets according to specific chassis. Johnny Lightning and Auto World cars allowed.

hard bodies only for all classes.

plastic and resin accepted.

no vacuum formed or paper or cardboard bodies please.

bodies need to be securely fastened to chassis.

my track is 1/64 scale 1/8 mile and 24 volts for all classes. I know there are other voltages preferred, but I have used 24 for a long time for all kinds of 1/64 builds and find it to work well.

plan on having this race October 1st and 2nd 2016.

all cars must arrive by September 30 2016.

please allow ample time for the USPS or whichever shipping vendor you choose to deliver BY September 30 2016.

Let me  know if you would like to have a car to test like this at your event.


I hope we can find a place for this type racing!

The race mentioned above is not being held by me but I will be entering six cars in it.


At my race, November 25-27 you can definitely send the car in for some test runs. I will be glad to post the results on race day.


My track shows 60', 330', 660' finish ET and MPH.


I am also sure I can find a match race or two for you, depending on what modifications you have made.


The last race I held had almost 50 entries including several 50+ mph cars running at only 20 volts.
