A CLASS for New Racers  (Newbies and Oldies)

Amateur Hard-Body Modified is a the newest HO racing class in SCHOR. The purpose of this class is to allow racers who are new or returning to HO slot racing to be involved in organized SCHOR racing without having to spend a lot of money, or having to compete with more experienced HO slot racers. The intention is to create an easy and fun low-tech racing class, that permits a wide variety of hard-body HO cars to be raced together, with an emphasis on creating parity through rule (magnets and tires) adjustments.

This event is usually the first race of the days program, and the races are 2 or 3 minute heats w/1.5 minutes for pit time.

The only approved chassis for the Amateur Hardbody class are: Tomy Mega G and Tomy Mega G+ (short and long), Tyco 440-X2, Tomy Super G+, Tomy SRT, Auto World Super III, and Life-Like/Rokar M and T, brand cars, and the box-stock Hardbody Wizzard Storm car.   All other brands are not allowed in this class!
