Club M-Racing Rules
1 - Chassis
- Any 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 - Tyres
- Shimizu Treaded Tyres for Tamiya
- Can be any of the 3 componds available; Soft Medium Hard.
- Swifts 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
- 7.2 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
- All 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
- All 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 - Bodyshells
- All body shells that are designed for M-chassis cars
- Strictly no GT12 or touring car body shells
