To make sure it's clear, do the general rules apply to the outlaw class? Meaning it still has to be hard body and plastic chassis (rule #1), no hybrid brands or mixing of pods (modification not specified), no lexan or alternate interior (modification not specified), no open wheel cars such as Caterham or F1 (tires could not satisfy rule #3 as stated), no body parts removed or lightened (modification not specified), no lowering of the body (rules not specified), rubber or urethane tires and no ball bearings (rule #6), etc.

 

Yeah, I'm a stickler, but I think it's fair to want to know exactly what we are and are not allowed to do.

Did some useful testing at BPR, got some good data, now for some changes and upgrades.

 

The cars are 85% complete, and more tesing at BPR will be done.

The F40 is a known product and set-up was straight forward and should perform well.

 

The Mirage could be a sleeper, depends on how well it is developed.

 

The 911 is an experiment that may have an advantage...

Alonso was having a good run at Indy and the motor (Honda) blew. Sato won, Alonso was at the same pace with Sato, so he had a good chance.

The Scalextric 911 was crap, the F40 Policar and Mirage Avant ran fine.
Building another avant for the spint enduro.

SRC Alfa for the home track events.

OK some ideas about what sponge tires to use.
The starting point was the Scaleauto hard rubber (soft Wonder). This was what we used as a spec tire at the last race at BPR.
Lap times in the 6.5 second.
I recently did some testing with narrow down JK soft Wonder and treated.
With the Wonder running in the 6.5 but dicey in the turns.
Treated, losta grip in turns, but bogged down the straight.
So chassis tune or tire tuning to get the results you want.
