Rules for the Enduro on June 10 for the 2016-17 OCC season.

Team entry will $60/team and each team can be 2, 3 or 4 members. Lunch fee will be $5 per person.

Included with the fee will be a complete JK C21 roller and your team's practice. Also, a Steve Koepp prepainted Parma Zonda body. The bodies can be swapped between teams if you'd prefer to run a specific color scheme.

 

Your team's car can be purchased at 9 AM, you can blueprint it before it goes to tech at 10 AM. If you'd like, you can purchase an extra motor from NESCR. Also, a set of JK Wonder rubber tires. All enduro supplied cars, motors, and wheels will be tagged with one color and anything purchased from NESCR will be tagged with a second color. These colors must be viewed during inspection(s). This will be used to prevent swapping of parts with personal items.

The race will begin at 10:15. If a car has not been through tech prior to the start, the team(s) must present their car to one of the technical individuals. We will ask several people to assist in order to not have all tech persons from one team. We will follow the OCC GT1 rule set. Tape will be allowed on either the top of the chassis or the bottom. Tires must not be less than .750" in diameter. We will wave the maximum .800" diameter for those teams wanting to run the tires as they are supplied and/or sold.

As the OCC has supplied the RTRs, we will require one of the two original rear tires must be used at all times. You can mix and/or match the original supplied tire with wonder rubber if your team chooses. The minimum width of all rear tires will be .820".
Once the race begins, all work on the cars may only be performed during green flag conditions. With the exception of oiling and changing the lane stickers, which occurs during the one minute lane change, all other work must stop.
We will run all 8 lanes at 15 minutes/lane, normal rotation, with 1 minute lane change time periods. At the conclusion of the first two hour segments, place a lane marker with your team name where the car finished then we will break for a one hour lunch. {If the racers would like to reduce this time, we will work to accomodate them. Since no work is to be performed during this time, we may be able to save a little time.} Going back to the original rotation, place your car back where you had finished.

If you'd like to enter, please respond on Facebook or Slotblog, we will look at both sites.

Some people get a bit carried away with nitpicking rules. If you know us, you also know that we'd prefer to keep things within in the rules without being too particular. If winning is your only goal, I'm sure you'll find a way to tweak here and there which wouldn't be 'in the spirit' of what we're trying to do. Our hope is that people will enjoy themselves, play fairly, have some good conversations, and return home thinking that the race was fun. Why, well, we are playing with toys.

As of this writing, the following teams have entered:

Ebert, Ploskunak & Stanley
Porter, Sabala & Vincek
Dennis Dominey & ????
