Stock Touring 17.5 Blinky
17.5 motors*. All competitors must use Blinky/Zero timing speed controllers as per either the BRCA or ROAR lists.

* Motors from the BRCA list published before 1st October may be used. Motors added after this date, cannot be used.

Front Wheel Drive Touring Car
Control Motor and ESC from Hobbywing Modified and 17.5 classes will be referred to as 4WD (four wheel drive) and Front Wheel Drive will be referred to as FWD (front wheel drive).
Drivers are welcome to book in for multiple classes but priority may be given to single class drivers.

Championships

The 4wd Touring Car class will utilise a formula system. This will be based on the driver’s sponsorship/support level. Those who receive 51% or more discount from any RC manufacturer of cars, electronics, or bodyshells will be placed in ‘F1’. Those who receive 50% or less discount from any RC manufacturer of cars, electronics, or bodyshells will be placed in ‘F2’. The organisers reserve the right to change the formula of any driver for any reason it sees fit. The decision of organisers is final.

The Junior (Under 17) championship will run within the class structure (not separate races). Anyone within the junior age limits at the start of round 1 will be entered into the junior championships.
Points will be scored for juniors from a percentage value created from final position in class divided by number of drivers in class generating an overall points score (100 for 1st, descending by 1)

General Regulations

Format
1 Timed Practice, 4 Qualifying Round by Round - Best 2 to Count - 1 Final

Scrutineering
Scrutineering will be pre-race. Once you have gone through scruitneering, you cannot go back to the pits without going back through the scruitneering process. Once you finish your run, you may take your car back to the pits.

Marshaling
You must marshal the 2nd race after your own. This means you will race, have a one race break, and then you will marshal the race after that. This is to allow us to keep to time and so we are not waiting for marshals. You must marshal from your designated number point. Hi-vis jackets must be worn whilst marshalling, marshalling is mandatory even if you DNS or DNF. Failure to return your car and transmitter to scrutineering or leaving your marshal post unattended will mean you lose your time for that round.

Minimum Ride Height
4WD and FWD Touring Cars - 5.2mm
Minimum ride height must be achieved for all parts of chassis and bodyshell.

Minimum Weight Limit
4WD Touring Cars - 1300g
FWD Touring Cars - 1250g

Additive
FJ003 - Fly Juice Tyre Additive TYPE C TBC
There will be a designated additive area for application of the control additive. Tires can only be cleaned with break cleaner. All tyres must be wiped before entering the track area, tyres will be checked during technical inspection before each heat. If the tyres are seen to be wet, we will ask you to wipe your tyres and resubmit your car for inspection.

Motors
Any motor can/will be checked at random by one of the MiCC team using a Fantom Fact Machine 3. The Fact Machine 3 accurately checks the internal resistance of a motor. Any motor that is found to be below the ROAR minimum figures will be asked to remove their motor and the FTD time deleted. These checks can be during tech or in the pits. We will see any motor that is in your car as your race motor.

Minimum Internal Resistance Figures
17.5T – 35.4 @ 25 degrees C

Bodyshells
In the past we have seen far too many new body shells being released, meaning that racers often had to panic buy to get the latest hot ticket in time for the next round and only a matter of hours to paint them, which intern meant we had a lot of one colour wonders.

Therefore, only bodyshells that are available to the public and are listed on the BRCA list on the 1st October are allowed to get used throughout the entire season.

We believe this rule will keep our racing fair and competitive throughout the whole championship and produce some awesome looking race paint.

All bodies must have lights (front & rear) and grill, painted (from inside) or using decals. No sharpie outlines or colouring in.

Body must be used as designed. No additional material may be added to alter the body unless it is included in the original design. Body must be cut-out and used as designed and no additional folding or bending of the body is allowed.

LiPo’s
Any commercially available hard cases 2s LiPo’s will be allowed.
The LiPo must be charged and discharged in a LiPo charging bag.

Max. Battery voltage: 8.40 Volts

The maximum permitted charge rate is what is stated on the BRCA LiPo approval list. Anyone found to be charging to a higher C rating or above the limits set out above will lose all of their times up to that point, if found again, they will be disqualified from the event.

Voltages and rates above will be check randomly by the MiCC Team.

If a driver comes to technical inspection with 8.44 volts or more, he/she is not allowed to start his/her next heat.
If the LiPo voltage is 8.41 to 8.43 volts the driver is allowed to discharge the battery down to 8.40 volts by accelerating and braking the car while holding it in his hands until the battery voltage is down to 8.40V.

Transponders
We will be using MyLaps RC4 decoders so you must have either an Mylaps RC4 or newer styles of MRT transponder. Click here for a table of compatible transponders.

It is the responsibility of the competitor to ensure that a compatible transponder is fitted to their car at all times. There will be no manual counting.

*Note some MRT PTX style transponders do work with our decoders. These can be identified from the older versions when the transponder is first powered on it will blink blue 3 times. This type is compatible.
