Re: NASTE Odd Thursday Night Racing

So Doc, should I amend the GT3 rules to allow the replacement of the stock spur gear with a Slot.it brand spur gear with the same number of teeth? How many teeth are on the stock spur gear?

OK Doc, just let me know.

Re: NASTE Odd Thursday Night Racing

Looks like every one I talked to and showed at Monties was ok with the rule change.just need make clear it is only the gear that can be changed. Must use stock bushing axle and rims. Same gear ratio  must be used

GT 3 rules updated. Take a look Doc and see if it looks OK. Let me know if it doesn't.

Re: NASTE Odd Thursday Night Racing

Okay, I have a question vis-a-vis the GT class. I have a couple of Panoz Esperantes that I love the look of, but as front -motored cars, they suck at performance. Olifer makes a 3D chassis for Slot-It pod (sidewinder) that fits with some interior modification. Stock motor can be used (18K), so it's not overpowered. Would a car set up like this be legal? If not, there is a thread on SlotCarIllustrated (http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal/fo … hp?t=99079) that shows how a fella from Oz modified his to take a sidewinder using the original chassis (no pod).

Thoughts?

Re: NASTE Odd Thursday Night Racing

Stan, as far as I can tell from your description your Panoz would be legal for the GT class with the Olifer chassis. Pretty much anything goes in the current GT class except Thunderslots.

Re: NASTE Odd Thursday Night Racing

Agreed.  Build it, let's see it go!

Re: NASTE Odd Thursday Night Racing

Will do. I love the Panozes (Panii?). They're so ugly they're beautiful.

Re: NASTE Odd Thursday Night Racing

So true Stan. Their beauty is in the eyes of the bewildered........or blind.........or something along those lines............

Re: NASTE Odd Thursday Night Racing

Doors + roof and not Thunderslot = GT legal.

Go for it!
