Club M-Racing Rules

1 - Chassis

  • mini rules chassisAny Tamiya 2WD M-Chassis (M01, M02, M03, etc).
  • Chassis parts can be replaced and upgraded with aluminium parts but the main tub chassis must remain the original Tamiya plastic part.
  • All M Chassis wheelbase lengths are legal (Short, medium, long)

Club Officals notes: From research and testing we cannot see enough performance differences between the FWD and RWD versions of the M Chassis range. Therefore, to try and open the series to as many people as possible all 2WD versions are eligible for championship points.


2 - Tyresmini rules tyres1

  • Shimizu Treaded Tyres for Tamiya
  • Can be any of the 3 componds available; Soft Medium Hard.


3 -Motors

  • mini rules motors1Swifts Certified HPI Saturn 20 Turns Motor Only


A certified motor will have a tagged tapper proof security sticker and be recorded in the swifts motor register.

There are two ways to get a certified motor:

  • Purchase a motor directly from Swifts Raceway.
  • Purchase a motor from another source and allow Swifts to certify it before its used. This option is only valid provided the motor is submitted while its still in its sealed packaging.



4 - Electrics

  • mini rules batteries all7.2 Ni-cd, 7.2 Ni-mh, 2S 7.4 Lipo packs only
  • Brushed esc only
  • Open to all types of servo but only one per car
  • Open to all Radio equipment

Club Officals notes: This was one of the toughest decisions to decide on. It has been agreed to not restrict batteries as most racers will be re-using batteries from other cars and won't want to purchase new ones.


5 - Upgrades

  • mini rules upgradesAll chassis aluminium component upgrades are allowed (motor heatsink, suspension arms, hubs, etc)
  • For drive train upgrades please see other specific rulings
  • Suspension upgrades are allowed (Aluminium shocks, oil filled shocks, anti-roll bars, etc)


6 - Gearing

  • mini rules gearingAll cars must run the standard gearing / spur gear that comes with the kit (37T Spur).
  • To confirm a stanard gear set is being run, the pinion must be mounted with the correct holes on the chassis.

Club Officals notes: Some drivers may be asked to confirm which pinion they are running during a scrutineering check.

7 - Differential

  • Geared or ball differentials allowed
  • Strictly no spools
  • No over greasing
  • No over tightening or adding other materials to lock up the diff

Club Officals notes: We had hoped to enforce a standard diff rule however on researching diff prices it appears that the standard diff could be the most expensive and hardest to find.


8 - Bodyshellsmini rules shells

  • All body shells that are designed for M-chassis cars
  • Strictly no GT12 or touring car body shells
