  • Trans-am series Porsche 911 ?

    Not being from America and just reading online do you allow Porsche 911 to run in your Trans-am categories ? Here in Australia we basically call it "muscle car" or "classic touring" to allow for our Falcons and Torana to go up against the Camaro's, Mustangs, Javelins etc

    Scaley release porsche 911

    In the mid 70’s there were two major national sports car racing series in America; the IMSA (International Motor Sport Association) series and the Sportscar Club of America’s TransAm series. Although there were some regulatory differences between the two series several competitors entered both and a Porsche RSR was definitely the weapon of choice.

    It all depends on the years that are included in the TransAm series. If it runs as high as 1974, then yes.

      Rules posted say through ‘76 so it would be legal. It’s my plan C.

      It’s a 3.0 Liter engine that Porsche ran in 73-76 replacing the 2.7liter RSR which also qualifies for the O2 liter Trans Am Proxy. Unlike the real car which finished 2nd in the TA championship, it would be tough to get one to compete on slot car track against American Muscle.

    That looks good to me!

    And I know that it isn't a Scaley motor, but that car should come with a (wait for it...) Flat 6!!!

    Har har har!!
    Ladies and Germs, I will be here all night!

    Why doesn't my car run like that?

    Fly did a very nice white George Follmer 1976 Trans Am Porsche 934. Like the real car it has the motor behind the rear axle. With a bit of weight it runs beautifully but the balance is an issue. Without a fair bit of weight forward and low down it does not handle very well. Once you add sufficient ballast it is too heavy and hence slow in a straight line with the stock motor.

    But it looks nice and is fun to drive
