RC CAR Action Contest
The latest talk of in the RC Cars arena has been that RC Car Action
wants to see who can build the flat-out fastest RC machine. The rules
are simple and all are invited. Keeping in view inviting the most eligible
contestants, simple laid out guidelines go hand in hand.
A driver or a team can enter any number of cars but chase cars are not
allowed. Drivers shall need to operate their vehicles from a fixed position.
Vehicles need to be wheeling driven only and turbines may be used only
if turbine is used for wheels and not for thrust. Vehicles powered by
thrust; jet, rocket, propeller are not allowed but surely vehicles may
be powered by engines or motors of any numbers.
Length of the vehicle strictly needs to be 40 inches but flexibility
of rules applies to weight, chassis configuration and number of wheels.
Looks can kill but the person who shall be sitting inside to kill should
be visible. That’s what the contest asks for. It needs to have cockpit
area with windows to show a person sitting inside. If the cockpit area
rules is complied with then the overall all design may look like a sitting
duck and no questions shall be asked.
Vehicle with the long run gets an edge. Those that are designed to run
only for a single time are not allowed. Cars with sacrificial run or
power systems good for one time run are not permitted.
Well, this is not all…! Your vehicle must be traceable at all times.
This means that it should carry a commercially available FM radio gear
with functioning fail safe system set to apply full brake in the event
of single loss or interference.
Categories for all participants have been truly outlined as Manufacturer
team, Independent team and Individual. Those fielded by RC companies
shall run as Manufacturers team. Students from engineering background,
entrepreneurs, or whoever makes up a group of three without the support
of a manufacturer can enter as Independent team. And lastly, the one
who owns all the credits for design, manufacture, ingenuity, class and
all, yet stands alone shall be eligible to enter as an Individual.
The competition shall give a fair chance to everyone to make three attempts
for the fastest run through and electronic speed trap. The one GIZMO
vehicle with overall highest peak speed shall be declared as the overall
winner. But to give due credits for manufacturing, team work and individuality
each category shall also carry awards for fastest vehicle in each category.
But the array of awards does not end there. Special awards are also
lined up for “Most innovative Design”, “Fastest Production car”, “Fastest
Engine-Powered Car” and “Fastest Electric Car”.
If you have true cells of creativity popping up in your brain area then
you might surprisingly bag some creativity prizes too. Although these
prizes are not officially announced; but may be given on the spot to
acknowledge and support creative architectures.
The event is not scheduled before 1st June 2005 but the spot is destined
to be Irwindale Speedway in Irwindale, CA.
So all you guys gear up all your creativity and power your brain cells
with high speed designs to impress the judges for your little speeding
