Racing Rules by Class

Rules For NASTE Odd Thursday Night Races

1. Heat races will be 3 minutes in length. Keeping with a standard heat length will allow racers to keep statistics of their cars performance, as well as their own driving performance (if they choose to do so). Races will be run at 10 volts.

2. Classes will be raced on a rotating basis.

3. First time/New racers may race cars equipped with one traction magnet. Upon winning a race, the racer will be required to remove traction magnets from their car or cars for future races. This rule does not apply to the BRM 1/24 classes.

4. To be eligible for an official win, racers must complete the entire race with the original entry that started the race. If a racer switches cars or replaces a car due to mechanical failure, or to improve performance anytime during the race, that entry is not eligible for an official win.

5. All screws that pass through the bottom of a car's chassis will have their heads taped over. This is to prevent them from falling out onto the track surface should they become loose. This includes the heads of body mounting screws, as well as chassis motor pod mounting screws, or any other screws accessible or visible from the underside of the chassis.

6. Non compliant winning entries will be posted as a N/C in the results.

7. Rules are subject to change and/or modifications. However no rule changes will be implemented at the start of a race. All rule changes or modifications will be implemented at the end of the current race date, and updated on the NASTE website within 48 hours. Rules must be in print to be enforced (if it ain't written down in the rules, it ain't official!).
