Scalextric ACT - Rule

Fees:
$20 for Club membership and $5 per meeting.

Race Restarts:
Only in the event of track or timing issues. Not because of a first lap pile ups!

Breakdowns:
In the event of a model breaking down, another (that fits the class requirements) may be substituted but the result is a D.N.F.

Marshalling/Sportsmanship:
With smaller numbers at some meetings, all members are expected to assist with marshalling whether involved in that particular race or not. If there is a deslot, the closest member does the marshalling.

Hand Controllers:
Open to mechanical and electronic HOME RACING style controllers that do not have any performance enhancing benefits. Slot.it, DiFalco and comparable controllers are not permitted.

Manufacturers:
The club is open to all manufacturers providing they fit the particular class and motor parameters. This includes bona fide 'cottage industry bespoke models' such as George Turner, RMS Resins and MMK. NSR models are very quick, therefore can only be raced with an BWA equivalent motor (No exceptions). Metal chassis and ‘Womp’ style models are not permitted.

Classes:
The Club endeavours to allocate a model to a class that accurately reflects their 1:1 scale racing heritage. Every effort has been made to ensure that cars of similar performance are grouped together. Should it become evident that the existing class allocation for a particular model may be inappropriate, members will agree to the reclassification for that model. If unsure about any model classification, please ask one of the other members for advice.

General Rules

Bodies:
Modifications to allow 'float' permitted. An alternative body (of plastic, resin or fiberglass only) may be substituted providing it fits the class requirements. However, all the interior fittings from the donor model must go into the replacement, no lightweight substitutes allowed. Within fair and reasonable tolerances, members are encouraged to attempt to model a 1:1 scale race-car that fits that particular class., vacuum formed shells are not permitted.

Weighting:
Must not be visible when model is viewed from above. Any weight added under the chassis should be suitable covered to not risk shorting the track.

Guide:
Open.

Motors:
The accepted RPM maximum is 18,000 to 21,500 (depending on the class). Motor downgrades are allowed providing the swap fits the class requirements and does not enhance the cars performance. For example an ‘S’ can or similar cannot be fitted to an SCX. Materials for swaps are glue, plastic and screws only. NO metal to be used.

Gears:
Must be as per the manufacturer’s specification only. The pinion may be replaced with brass as long as the original ratio is retained. Ninco models may have their gears replaced with plastic Pro Race as long as original ratio is retained.

Wheels:
Must be as per the manufacturer’s specification for that particular model. Metal rims are not permitted.

Tyres:
Any urethane or rubber. No silicon or foam. Treatment of and/or additives to tyres are not permitted.
