Short Track Shoot-out Rules

People have been asking me about the rules for the Short Track Shoot-Out, we will be following the BRL rules. To clarify the ground height rule, we will be going with a minimum of 3/16" (.1875") chassis and body. I'm still waiting to hear back from Chuck on the checking procedure of the ride height because certain manufactures have lowered the motor below the bottom pod plate and button head screws are being used more often. I have been told by two BRL racers how it is done, I believe them but I would like to get it in writing from Chuck. I understand that certain items are over looked and we will follow the BRL checking procedure.

As for what and when things will be checked:
1. We will be checking all cars/ trucks before each race.
2. Weight will always be checked (except on Losi cars).
3. There will be spot checks like ground height, roof and hood (COT only) heights, voltage, speed control version checks on Tekins, legal speed controls. If you are not checked for voltage, you may be asked to turn your car on and pull your radio throttle to full for approximately 2 to 3 seconds (except on Losi cars).

If you have any questions on the rules, here is our link to the rules:
http://www.dfrcr.com/rules.htm.

Hope to see you all there.

Until next CARPET update, keep your tires on the fuzz and your lid toward the lights!

Jason Van Hise for 17.5 truck class. Just put a truck together and want to try it and see how it handles. What kind of roll-out do you run so I don't go over the laps?

We will be racing tonight. Doors open at 5:00pm. Racing starts at 7:00pm. This will be the last chance to "test and tune" before the Short Track Shoot-Out. Don't miss out.

Until next CARPET update, keep your tires on the fuzz and your lid toward the lights!

Well if Mark and Danny are running COT the I guess the rest of us are racing for third and lower!!! See ya guess Sat. I think Mark should have a 2 lap penalty, but then I guess he would figure how to run a 67 lap pace then. Jason

Jim - it is advertised as 13.5, so we are running 13.5 motors. We ran 10.5's wednesday night just to see the difference.

Mike - that is because that Craig guy also has to do inspections - I'll be a little busy on saturday. Maybe I'll have it done and ready to go done at Twin Bridges on sunday.

Sorry Steiner just kidding, but it is the truth with you and danny running they might as well hand you the cash as soon as you sign up. For who's signed up I don't see anybody that can beat you two. Danny's alittle closer, but you just put everybody 3 laps down again last sunday.
