VINTAGE TRANS AM pan car class rules

Post  Enforcerman on Thu Dec 16, 2010 1:30 am

For those who are interested in the Vintage Trans Am pan car class here are the rules:

1. Any 1/10 scale direct drive pan car chassis

2. HPI VINTAGE TRANS AM BODIES ONLY, such as would have been produced and raced during the 1960's to 1970. This would include the Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes and Barracudas of that era. As HPI adds more bodies in the future that are of that type they will be added upon approval.

3. 1 cell lipo with a max of 50C

4. 17.5 brushless motors with speed controls set to "spec" mode only. These will be teched at the track if anyone is suspected of doing otherwise. Each manufacturer has a way of setting the esc to "spec" mode. For those who still have the "brushed" Venom 21T motor per the previous rules; you may continue to run that motor till you get a brushless system. Be aware though that you will likely be at a disadvantage power wise. No other brushed motors allowed. If you still have a brushed motor please upgrade to the 17.5 brushless as soon as possible so we are ALL running under the same motor rule.

5. The tire/wheel for this class shall be the BSR WGT with the purple stripe. This comes in a purple compound only. The part numbers are: F1034GT rears and F1033GT fronts. If you still have the Jaco WGT lilac tires or the BSR Spec yellow stripe tires, you may continue to use them till they wear out; afterwhich they are to be replaced with the BSR WGT tire.

6. Minimum weight limit 35 oz.

7. As per the national Vintage Trans Am rules, bodies must be painted and decaled in a manner that would be consistent with Trans Am racers of that era. That means no neon paint jobs, no flames or skulls or anything that would look out of place on a Trans Am car.

As president and founder of this class I reserve the right to determine these regulations. This class is all about fun, scale appearance spec racing that is simple and affordable for all. Anyone who willingly violates the spirit of this class will be asked to change or risk being expelled from the class. If anyone has a question concerning whether or not something is legal, either post it here or see me at the track. Don't assume.

If anyone wants to make any changes to the specifications of the class, please feel free to approach me or other members, and we will bring it up for discussion and vote. Thank you.

Anyone interested in joining the Vintage Trans Am class please read rule number 5 which concerns tires. There has been a change.

The new spec tire is the BSR WGT purple stripe which comes in a purple compound only. Part numbers are: F1034GT rears and F1033GT fronts.

The reason for this is that I found out that the Jaco WGT and the BSR Spec yellow stripe are being discontinued.

Once your Jaco WGT and BSR Spec yellow stripes have worn out, please replace them with the BSR WGT blue stripe spec.

Thank you.
