When adding parts to the bumpers, side guards or the chassis, please note the zone restrictions below.

※Definition of Side Guards - Parts that extend from the sides of the chassis between the front and rear tires.

  • Parts which extend around the outside of the wheels to completely frame the chassis are not allowed.
  • Parts attached to the front bumper cannot extend past the line of the front axle.
  • Parts attached to the rear bumper cannot extend past the line of the rear axle.
  • Parts attached to the side guards must remain within the lines shown: (back edge of Front Tire & front edge of Rear Tire)
  • Chassis: Extension parts which are attached to the chassis itself are subject to the same zone restrictions as similar parts attached to the bumpers or side guards.

    ※There are no rules for parts which pass above or within the outside edges of the tires.
    ※There are no rules for mounting rollers, etc. to the body as long as they are above the level of the wheel axles. If they extend below this line, they will be subject to the same limits as parts which are attached to side guards.

Disassembling the motor to change the number of coils and other such illegal modifications are prohibited.  If there are indications that the motor cap has been detached, it will be judged as being illegally modified.
