These are now the “official” rules. It’s possible that they might change slightly, or even be added to, but if we do I’ll be sure to notify people by creating a new post in the thread. My personal opinion on the rules is this: they’re there so that it’s a basis of what to go by, but not so much that it can’t still be fun. I personally encourage and would like to see whatever people can bring to the table. The crazier the better.
-No engines or propulsion.
-No moving weights.
-Wheels can be attached to the car in any manner, but must not extend beyond the front of the valve cover.
-Nothing can extend beyond the front of the valve cover. (Due to the starting mechanism, and to make sure they start at the same place.)
-Cars shall be based on an actual rocker cover from an automobile engine.
-Cars must have four wheels, each no more than six inches in diameter. (Thinking about deleting this one. Thoughts?)
-30 inch maximum overall car length. (This figure is up in the air, depending on feedback I receive from you guys. However, 20″ is pretty dang big already!)
-10 inch maximum overall car width, including axles/wheels. (Due to the width of each lane.)
-No height restrictions (within reason, of course). This is a personal “non-rule” because I’m secretly hoping somebody builds one to look like a pirate ship. Hint hint.
-10 pounds maximum weight by official scales.
