(Provisional) Classes for MiniZ Nationals

i decided to take the initiative to further discuss the rules affecting classes for our MiniZ nationals conference for if and when it does happen.

based on the ideas set forth so far by draconius, myself and lightfighter, here's a collection of our ideas for the rules affecting racing classes with an attempt to find a happy medium:


Mini-Z Racing Classes
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

Stock
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
motor- stock motor only in ready set
hop ups- Use only stock parts available in ready set.
Modifications- none allowed.
body shell- kit body only. no alterations


Pro Stock
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
motor- Stock motor only without modifications.
other motors prohibited.
hop ups- Add ons to increase efficiency, strength or suspension
allowed without custom alterations. . no limits to brand/
manufacturer of aftermarket parts
body- kit body only. no alterations

Modified
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
motor-Stock, X-Speed, or other retail mini-z motors that don't
require a turbo.
hop ups- must use add ons to increase efficiency, strength or
suspension. no limits to brand/manufacturer of aftermarket
parts
modifications- No motor modifications allowed. No Turbos or
ESC modifications.
body- racing body preferred.


Unlimited
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
motor-no limits to motors, turbos or esc modifications. custom
wound and altered motors allowed. can use any custom motor
of the 130 can size or any larger motors.
hop ups- must use add ons to increase efficiency,
strength and suspension. no limits to brand/manufacturer of
aftermarket parts
body- No limits to body alterations and use of polycarbonate or
lexan bodies allowed.


******

This of course is only a provisional layout affecting racing classes and remains open for further debate, modification and discussion to the general forum members. Any finalization of the rules set forth within this thread would be subject to official approval by the powers that be which have yet to be elected or determined.


cheers

West.F1, always taking the initiative - great! Well, my first feedback is that limiting to Kyosho in any division doesn't seem to make sense, what is the logic behind that? And my second, is that, at least for national, not weekly or anything, the stock class should be handouts, as there are plenty of things you could do to your "stock" motor to get a huge advantage.

i think my initial thinking at the time was to have a pro stock class as equal as possible. mods using the same brand but i guess that doesn't make much sense. i agree. bad idea.

it'd be better to have the same motor but with the freedom of hop ups regardless of brand.

just an idea. thanks for the feedback
