3. GENERAL car RULES


Body Modifications:

     Bodies may be functionally modified with minimal effect external appearance. The                   following non-comprehensive list of body modifications are allowed:

         1. The rear bumper may be removed up to Maximum 20mm from the ground.
         2. Wheel wells may be cut forward or backward to accommodate different wheelbase                   chassis.
         3. Wheel wells may be cut or chamfered internally for tire clearance.
         4. Lower portions of the body may be cut for ground clearance in front, sides or rear.           5. Body material may be shaved or thinned internally for weight reduction. Technical                 inspection officials reserve the right to disqualify any modified body deemed to be                 too fragile due to excessive material removal.
         6. Body panels may be reinforced or strengthened internally without affecting                           external appearance.
         7. Original windshield and windows must be installed, but can be modified by cutting                   unexposed internal areas.
         8. Original headlight covers must be installed, but headlight buckets may be removed                 or omitted. In the event that a headlight cover is lost, the hole may be covered with               a decal.                                                                                                                                               9. Taillights and taillight covers may be removed or omitted.
        10. Small body parts such as mirrors, canards, exhausts may be omitted or removed to                   prevent racing damage and debris on track.
        11. All rear wing comes with the body may be installed according to the no height                         limited. Custom Manufactured wings allow using on the body, according to the                         height limited 45mm from the ground. 

the above list is non-comprehensive. The purpose and spirit of the rules is to allow functional performance modifications to the body while preserving the scale appearance and realism. The technical inspector has final authority in the judgment of body modification legality. 

If you have modified your body and have questions regarding the legality of the modifications, please submit the body in question to technical inspection PRIOR to racing qualification or main event round. This is in order to prevent any inadvertent disqualifications. The technical inspector will judge the legality of body modifications and photograph the body in its legal state if necessary. 

If the body is further modified post-inspection, the modifications may or may not be legal. For the racer's protection, please re-submit the body in question to technical inspection IMMEDIATELY if significant modifications are made. 

If the body is damaged, the condition of the body may or may not be legal. For the racer's protection, please submit the body in question to technical inspection IMMEDIATELY if significant damage occurs. If the damaged body is judged illegal, it must be repaired or replaced for the next qualification or main event round. Qualification or main event results during which racing damage occurs on track will be allowed, as long as the body is not judged to be intentionally designed to break away to benefit performance.
