Racing Classes and Rules


-Vehicle Scale: Maximum 1/10

-Nitro: Not allowed

-Batteries: 2S LiPo/LiHv (7.4-7.6v) or 6-cell NiMH stick packs allowed.

-Transponders: MyLaps RC4 (2 or 3 Wire) ONLY

-Racing without a Transponder is permitted, but your vehicle will not be tracked.

-The Race Director is not responsible to address any technical issues that occur with personal transponders mid-race. Lap counts will not change post-race and rankings will not be revised (unless drivers are disqualified for other technical reasons). Drivers are responsible to ensure proper performance and reliability of transponders, including proper mounting on the chassis clear of interference and within close range of the timing loop in ground.

-VEHICLE TECH INSPECTIONS to verify compliance with the below rules will occur at random and occasionally upon request. The TLF crew will NOT provide advance notice of if/when Tech Inspections will occur; therefore, it is recommended that all drivers fully understand and abide by these class rules. Violations found post-race are grounds for immediate disqualification from the race (and loss of race points in series events)

-(*) For classes requiring Blinky ESC mode, the Hobbywing QR10BL120 esc will be permitted but during Tech Inspections the driver must provide verification via Hobbywing Program Card that esc is programmed with no timing added (no boost/turbo added).
