Pan Car racing at R/CAR on Marion County's "Big Rug".

We have aligned our Pan Car rules package with the rules the TOUR has promoted for a few reasons.
The TOUR was designed to provide a unified set of rules for pan car racers to follow that allows all of us to run the same package through-out the US.It is structured with the racer in mind...promoting growth from one class to the next and keeping cost down while supplying the racers with guidelines to work within with approved manufacturers.
The TOUR is not a sanctioning body.
Also running the TOUR rules will allow us to host an official(thx Mike)SNOWBIRDS warm-up race starting next season and hopefully secure one of the TOUR's major championship races.

Here is the link to the TOUR rules.
The first post has an attachment of the rules...just click on it.

Here is a link to the TOUR thread that has a ton of useful information.

http://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/forumdisplay.php?f=314

A copy of the TOUR rules will be posted on our website and will be available at the track as well.

Yes Josh...and I hope they all look that good!

The Slash class will remain stock...so the stock wheels and tires will be the only legal ones to run.

Those look like they are stock tires Paul Songas has on his...he has just glued painted lexan disc's over the rim with a hole drilled for easy removal.

The front bumper has to be turned over or removed for the body to fit correctly.

Matt Graves...your new home should be the new "Big Rug" thread:thumbsup:

I'll call you later bro...maybe half time of the Colts game.


By the way,Simpson & I just spoke on the phone and the 1cell 10.5 was real fast at Tri-State.He ran a 4.1 and that was his last run of a 9 hour test session.He used the same 1cell all day & never took it out of the car.
Now I want to here some arguments about TOUR rules!
Best lap 9hours in and the same $65 battery all day long.

Monte turned a 4.0 in his Silva Saturday and most others were around 4.1 & 4.2's.

Wide open all the way around the track baby...Chris said it was sick!

(I guess this all should be on the carpet thread)
There you go Bro......I'm here!!! The Mangler was fastest in practice...DAMN IT MONTI!!! LMAO. Anybody that know's Monti and his dad will get that joke!!

Chris was fastest in Friday practice and Monti was a tenth better on Saturday during the race program.That was Simpson's first time out...you know Monti was in there before the glue dried underneath the new ozite.

How about a post to see what everyone that Is coming to the rug
wants to run so we can come ready. :wave:
I will do a roll call leading up to each race day to help get a feel for who's bringing what.


We are still quite a ways away from racing...the carpet has not even been delivered yet.

I'll keep everyone posted as we complete our long list of projects.

I just wanted to get classes and rules available so guys can start preparing cars for the season.
