Any GT car that raced after January 1st, 2010 with a base production of 100 or more.
Body and Chassis

2 Chassis and body do not have to be naturally mated RTR set from the same manufacturer. Podded & universal chassis are allowed. Chassis may be braced, reinforced or strengthened. Body screws should be taped to prevent loss.1.3: Chassis may be modified to accept front axle mounts (SCC) or guide modifiers (B-NOVA).
4 Guide may not project beyond the body when aligned for straight, as viewed from directly above.
5 Cars must have sufficient ground clearance to permit free running without contacting track. Cars which drag on the track may be excluded at the track owners’ discretion.
6 Clear window material must be used where the real car has clear material.7 Racing numbers must be visible in three places on body. Racing numbers must match. Bodies may be painted in fantasy or realistic liveries. Non-decorated cars (for example plain white kits) are not allowed.

Wheels and Tires
1 Tires may not project beyond the body when the car is at rest on a level track, as viewed from directly above.
2 Reasonable scale appearing inserts are required in all wheels, unless the wheels have scale appearance and detail.
3 Minimum wheel size is nominal 15mm diameter over center-rib, or a scale 16″ (.500″) diameter over visible part of rim with tire mounted (simulating a nominal 15″ wheel), unless actual car raced with smaller wheels. F1 style wheels are not allowed, unless the actual car raced with 13″-14″ nominal diameter rims.
4 Minimum front tire width is 7mm. Front tires may be profiled so that a narrower area contacts the track, but must otherwise be full width.
5 Maximum rear tire width is 12mm.
6 Front tires may be of any rubber/urethane compound. Silicon tires are expressly forbidden. Tires must appear to be black. Clear finish may be applied to tire tread area.
7 No chemical treatment (such as oil soaking) is permitted.
1 Any commercially available sealed-can slot car motor is allowed. No rewinds or “mod motors” allowed.
2 Magnetic down force from motor may not exceed 30 grams as checked with a Magnet Marshal, exclusive of car weight.
3 Motor can be glued/taped/screwed in place. Pods can be taped or glued to restrict movement.April 10, 2022 at 1:02 AM #17676
1 Wheels, tires, gears, axles, guides, braids, wires, and bearings may be modified or replaced by any manufacturer’s parts that are readily available to all competitors. All-wheel drive, and multiple motors, may be used only if the actual car used them.
2 Weight/ballast can be added to the car but must be contained on the inside of the body.
3 Spring and magnetic suspension packages are allowed.
4 No traction magnets allowed.
The series will be raced at 12 Volts.
If it is not mentioned it is not legal.
These rules were written to create a fair event and not for racers to look for loopholes.
If you want to run something I missed please let me know and I will add it to the list If it meets race rules.April 10, 2022 at 1:02 AM #17677August 18, 2022 at 12:14 PM #18124BarkingSpyderParticipant
BSP* is fielding
— NSR McLaren (fantasy livery)
— Racer Ford GT
I will be posting an Un-boxing page soon. The Racer Ford GT is 90% cool, very detailed, lite well built.
CONS: No lower front axle adjustment hole and not much “meat” to drill some with a M2 Tap.
17k long-can motor – certainly is going to be replaced.August 23, 2022 at 11:09 AM #18170JayParticipant
I’m considering running the Slot.it Nissan GT-R (CA49), it’s not on the list, would this be eligible?
JayAugust 24, 2022 at 12:05 PM #18171
Jay – I’m not the official series manager but the Nissan GT-R is a full on GT3 car and will be allowed to race. That is one of the best looking Slot.it cars I have ever seen. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need any help getting it set up. I would love to see that car run well in this series.

This coming Saturday the 24th is the first round of the clubs GT3 series. This round is happening in Q3 due to the constraints on the clubs Q4 calendar.
Looking forward to seeing everyone and their shiny new GT3 cars.September 22, 2022 at 5:35 AM #18263
Yikes! Haven’t even unboxed the car… 🙁September 22, 2022 at 3:14 PM #18264
Well at least you didn’t wait until the last minute. 🙂September 22, 2022 at 11:31 PM #18265Radial TAParticipant
Slot.it actually has the Nissan and a Maserati GT3.September 23, 2022 at 8:36 PM #18266
Our first vacation in three years got in the way. (CO was amazing, by the way!)
Fortunately, I have a bunch of tires already glued/trued from Nationals. So a bit of motor break-in and balancing and I’ll be at a good starting point.

I’m going to need a ruling on liveries regarding numbering. The presentation liveries only show two numbers. The rules say three must be visible. I can stick another number on the car, but it defeats the fidelity of the original livery.
what say you? 🙂
