Fluorescent colors, wild graphics, chromes and non-period correct paint schemes are all allowed. All cars should have numbers on both doors. Wheel rims of any style are allowed. Exhaust or side mirror imitations are allowed but must be securely attached to the car at race start (If parts were to to be detached during a race NO penalty will be given).

Motor timing advance is allowed.
NO Suggested gearing FDR recommendations exists in this class:
Rules of thumb, gear it so you wot over heat.

Tracks should not dictate which motor combination a racer should choose. All motor types/battery combos have been tested to compete evenly against one another in competition with great success. If any one power choice shows a definitive advantage at a certain track, it is up to the race management to even the racing out via suggested bans of certain equipment.

Race Specification:

- 60 minute mains (Tire Changes, Battery Changes are allowed.)
- Random starts will be specified open track layout
- Start positions will determined by qualifying rounds on events with multiple heats.
- Random starts should shuffle starting order via car numbers.

Optional Main Variations:
- 10-20 car A-mains, depending on car counts.
- Invert qualifying order based on random hat pull (top 6-10 cars).
- "LeMans" type starts where all cars are lined up on an angle to the racing line in order.
- Run track in reverse rotation for mains.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: If it's not in the rules, consider it illegal. The class is based on slower, equal playing field competition with less/no traction, where nominal aerodynamic aids will not aid you much
and mostly the opposite setup of grip racing. The final objective is close, fair, wheel-to-wheel racing for all. All decisions of the race promoter or track owner are final.

MAN I DONT KNOW HOW THESE OLD FOOLS CAN WRITE SOMETHING THIS LONG !!!
