NO PREP DRAG RACING

What are the rules for no prep RC drag racing?

No Prep means that the racing surface is left unprepared to simulate normal street conditions (although blowing it off is acceptable). Street Outlaw means that each model must have a body that mimics an actual car you could drive on the street. No Prep R/C Drag Racing is all about simplicity and fun. Scale quarter mile is roughly 132 feet. Most of the time, the starts are done with a flashlight, or “Set, GO!” format. But with Drag-It-Anywhere’s NEW 1/10 and up Starting Tree, you can now have the most realistic Starting system on the market.

Body: Realism – Body must cover wheels (i.e. no buggies) Wheel wells must be cut exposing 1/2 the wheel minimum. Wings and things: Rear wings/spoilers may extend off the body’s rear deck a max of 3 inches. Rear side dam may not be higher than the car roof line and can extend off the body’s rear deck a max of 3 inches For more rules click here.

For the Real thing (Full Size Cars) The rules are simple, with just three classes—Senior, Junior, and Gangster—and simple rules. The tires are basically the limiting factor. Senior cars race on up to a 28×10. 5 tire and need a parachute, Junior cars can’t run larger than a 275 or 8.5-inch tire and stock suspension.
