NRRA RC Classes

The goal of this race series is to duplicate the race atmosphere and performance of 1:1 rock bouncers. RC rock bouncers need to resemble 1:1 rock bouncers in every way. From the tires to the chassis. If event coordinators feel the driver/builder has failed to do that, you will not be allowed to participate.

Plastic RC Class RULES

- Must be a round tube or solid rod plastic chassis with shocks mounted to the chassis.

- The chassis must resemble a rock bouncer or Ultra 4 car.

Unlimited RC Class RULES

- Must be a round tube or solid rod metal chassis with shocks mounted to the metal chassis.

- The chassis must resemble a rock bouncer or Ultra 4 car.

- Twin Vertical Plates (TVP) are not allowed.

Rules for both classes

**MUST BE SHAFT DRIVEN**

- Max Tire size - 6"

- Lower Skid or Chassis plate no longer than 9".

- If you go out of bounds, you can re-enter the course in the same place or lower down on the hill, you can not progress out of bounds.

- No hand of God
Fixability

- Short course cars are not allowed. However, a chassis builder can build a chassis, and use the drivetrain and suspension from a donor vehicle. For example, the drivetrain and upper and lower A-arms, differentials, etc. from a Tekno short course car. Excluded examples would be the body, chassis plate, and shock towers. If you have questions about this, contact event coordinators for clarification.

- In 1:1 rock bouncer racing, the driver can fix any issues with his buggy, and continue up the hill, but can receive no outside help. For the RC class, if you experience trouble (i.e. your battery comes unplugged), the driver can fix the issue, but the buggy will not be moved or rolled back over to work on it.

- Further, parts can be swapped out in between hills (i.e. swapping out a broken axle).

- If you’re not ready and it’s your turn, you will be put at the back of the line. If you’re still not ready, when the entire rotation goes through, you will get a DNF for that hill.

- Tires CAN be swapped out (example: putting boggers on the back) in between hills.

- It is up to the race team to make sure your rig is ready and passes tech inspection. NRRA officials make the final decision to pass or fail a race rig. We will do tech inspections starting Friday before the race, and will continue to inspect rigs up to 1 hour before drivers meeting. If your rig fails tech then you have until one hour before the drivers meeting to bring your rig up to code. So if you are unsure about your set up, make sure you get there early so you will have time to make repairs before the final tech insp.
