  • ***PORSCHE 997 CUP PROXY. Rules updated November 27th*** let me know thoughts

    Cars: Porsche 997 GT3RS and 997 RSR only

    Eligible Bodies
    NSR 997 RSR
    Carrera 997 RSR
    Flyslot 997 RSR
    Ninco 997 GT3 RS
    Scalextric 997 GT3 Cup

    Entrant’s name must be noted on underside of car as well as instructions for body float adjustments, if any.
    Car numbers must be unique; no duplicate numbers chosen on a first come basis.

    No changes to wheel wells allowed or altered body length or width from OEM. Please use your discretion, the objective is that the car looks like a scale race car from the period. Cars should represent the actual race car, and not appear slammed our have wheels and tyres that appear to be out of scale. Cars can be lowered, but must maintain a “natural” stance.

    -----Tires must fit fully under the fenders. Tires may NOT project beyond body work when viewed from above.
    -----Bodies must be removable to allow inspection and photography after the last race, and if needed to allow maintenance and repair during the race series.

    Weight – there is no weight limit or minimum. All weight must be placed inside (covered by the body) and there can be no weight placed on the bottom of the chassis or outside of the body, or any other place including the guide. NO weighted guides.

    Lightweight interiors allowed, but must be 3 dimensional and painted to show drivers head, shoulders, arms, steering wheel and dash. Drivetrain and wires are to be covered by the interior when peering through windows and the driver should also be clearly visible.

    -----Clear window material must be present; whether a windshield or a windscreen and may be vacuum formed or plastic only.

    ANY chassis that is stock, aftermarket, scratch built, or 3D printed using any material, is eligible. Podded or non-podded chassis allowed
    -----Inline / sidewinder / anglewinder configurations all OK
    -----Underside of car chassis and body must clear track road surface, on level track, by 1.0mm minimum the gear may be lower so long as it does not interfere with the track surface.
    -----Guide must be entirely under body, and NOT visible when viewed from above.
    -----Traction magnets are NOT permitted.
    -----Suspension permitted
    -----Axle bushing and bearings are allowed on front and rear.
    -----All chassis MUST be mounted like an RTR car - meaning screws through the chassis to body mounting points and no pins THROUGH the body, Velcro, etc. However, a chassis with side mounts such as the HRS/HSR-2 can be used - as long as the pins do NOT go through the body. (we may also revisit this one)

    ANY stock or aftermarket gears and ratios of your choice may be used.

    ANY commercially available FC-130, FK-130, FK-180 (including Flat 6 models) or FF-050 motor with a RPM limit of 22000. Motors cans are not to be opened or modified. Wrapper can be removed for clearance.

    plastic, magnesium or aluminum wheels are allowed. Wheels must have period inserts or look reasonably period for the car - no blank aluminum insert wheels please.
    Minimum diameter 16mm
    Minimum width 7mm front
    Maximum width 12mm Rear

    Only BLACK RUBBER tires are allowed with a minimum OD of 19mm for rear tires with a maximum width of 12mm at the start of the series. Minimum front tire diameter will be 17mm; minimum width of 7mm. All tires must be black.
    Tires may be cleaned in any manner prior to shipping them to the first race, but may not be prepared by oil-soaking or other chemical means. Nail polish or clear coating of front tires is allowed. TIRES CAN BE CLEANED BY the host prior to qualifying or if deemed detrimental to the performance of competitors cars.

    If a car is damaged during a race, or has a mechanical issue, the owner will have the option to have the car returned at his cost, or have the track host repair the car. The impact (if any) to the results from that race will be the only penalty. Shipping expenses must be paid for by the owner, and the series will continue at the scheduled pace. Cars that are returned to the owner during the event, can only have the needed repair work done, and must be returned to the series without additional tuning or “refreshing”. Consideration and fairness will be employed, especially when a car is damaged during the series due to no-fault of the entrant.
    If a car(s) is significantly damaged during shipping, all effort will be made to repair the car(s) to its original state – where possible the race event will be delayed to facilitate the repairs
    There is no allowance made for a car to be tuned, or have parts replaced for improved performance during a series.
    Cars that do not meet these rules and/or could impede the performance of other cars during the series will have a 2 point penalty applied. Multiple infractions will incur multiple penalty points up to a maximum of 12 points. Cars that are deemed to be unsafe and/or could impede the performance of other cars will not be allowed to race and will be returned and/or made compatible.
    Decisions by the Race Director are final, the onus is on the builder to ensure his/her car meets the rules and are compatible to the track and fellow entrants. The Race Director reserves the right to exclude or penalize an entry at his discretion for anything else arising that is not specifically mentioned in the rules.

    Are lined up and will be listed soon and may be subject to change due to restrictions and social distancing requirements as safety is first over our toy car competition. All tracks are to be run between 10-12 volts and at the discretion of the host.

    Participants are limited to 24 entries.

    Due Date : June 30th 2021

    Sponsors and prizes will be listed soon will be a great place to shop for motors gears and additional wheels and tires that fit your builds.
    NSR will support our proxy directly as well with a few prizes
    Im waiting to hear back from a few others.

    Once every 2 years a Porsche Cup Proxy featuring different eras of Porsche cars or groupings will be developed going forward. An example of proxies : 356, 908, 934/935 RSR, Porsche 906-910, 911 only, 917 of course as it’s not currently eligible for the Can Am. It also appears these are cars most of us currently have which may be collecting dust.

    I like it. I also like the idea of a rotating the model. Any thought to wheels bring a 15.8 minimum? That would open up some additional options.

    Which bi annual... Once every two years or twice per year?

      ArroldN yes, look for an announcement in the up coming months regarding the O2 Trans Am. My guess is after the Trans Am. I’m looking at the schedule for future and historical arrival dates, it would keep things interesting COVID and host dependent.

      GT3 cars are due November
      Can Am February/ March
      Fly February
      World Champion March
      Trans Am. May/June
      Porsche Cup July

      I can get down with every 2 years.

      Don't forget about the Quick Slicks proxy. I'm determined to pull a larger field next year. Probably April/May/June timeframe depending on host availability.

        Always interested in new options. Have a thought .... what if you have it set up as a spec motor event like using the new Predator 18K where you would have two motor configurations to choose from. Just thinking?!?

          While I don't really have an issue with spec. motors,....why limit the motor orientations to 2 ???

      • #7
        Chris obviously a fair question. Was just looking at the same RPM spec from same manufacturer in two formats FC-130 and FF-050. Put more focus on build than picking out a specific brand that has more toque etc. As I said just thinking and may help in securing a sponsor... Dale

          My mistake Dale,.........somehow I thought you referring to the motor orientation in the chassis eg. inline/sidewinder etc.
          Apologies !!!

                I am in, but ideally would like to see this start with a vintage Porsche car instead of the 997. A proxy full off 908s would be fun

                  Dan, I did go around and around on this as I want to run a 906-908 as well or a 910 or a 917 as we all have 1-5 of these cars laying around collecting dust. I felt the 997 Cup would be a little change of pace, provide close competition, and would lead to future Porsche Cup Races with minor rule changes. I promise, we will race 906, 908 and 917 cars. I have two 908s and two 917 I’m dying to Proxy race. Besides, we are committed as SteeveeW ordered a car 😀

                  GT3 proxy will have its share of 997s , so that is why I suggested a 908, No big deal, as I have a couple of 997s and will be more than happy to participate.

              • #14
                I'm in too, can't miss a Proxy where I can build in brass! Next question, will there be a list of eligible bodies? I'm not a Porsche expert so I don't know the difference between a 997 and all the other 9s.

                  Ninco makes a 997 Porsche GT3, Scalextric, Auto Art and NSR. If this is a go I will make a list of eligible bodies and send you my Ninco.
