FUN AND FAIR RULES
We have been working on a set
of rules that will allow racers of all skill levels to have fun and
compete in a fair setting, using a mix of the latest electronics
and what you may have available in your RC parts bin already!
SUPER-SIMPLE RULES: bring a car and a 4-cell pack!
To join us, all you need is a Formula Ten car equipped with a
4-cell battery pack of your choice - that's all! At this first
demonstration race, we'll provide every racer that needs a motor
with an HPI 15T Firebolt motor (#1146
which will provide enough power to have fun on the indoor carpet
track. The maximum pinion size is 22T. You also have the
opportunity to use a 17.5T brushless motor if you have one, however
this is not required. The maximum pinion size for brushless motors
is 26T. Each Formula Ten car needs be built as indicated in the kit
(no modifications to wings, bargeboards, etc.), with the bodyshell
cut out according to the instructions. Here are the complete rules,
they're very short! ** PLEASE NOTE ** This is a
demonstration race to present the cars and also to evaluate the
technical rules. The rules below may change slightly before the
