Erm, if you need standard chassis in class 2 is it OK to use aftermarket adaptors to fit and 'S' can into a SCX Volvo or Peugeot SRS2 as these use RX motors as standard?

Hi Ian
Would you take proxy entries?I would like very much to attend but i'll be attenting half tonners and it's impossible to escape from work and home twice in a fortnight.
I haven't seen Ninco Alfa 155 either in eligible or excluded cars,is there a reason?

Hi Alexis - the Ninco 155 is the big wheel arch DTM/ITC 4WD car and I think the organisers have rightly excluded the DTM cars otherwise they would ALL be DTM cars

QUOTE Pete Emery need your class ( I assume 2)

No problem, class 1 & 2 please

Lots of questions on what is/is not allowed but I will try to get my head around them and make them only one post/set of questions

Should be fun!

I will be there for the Slot swap meet on Saturday, so ideal to do some racing as well!

Cheers Bill.
