2017 PRO-HARDBODY Rules...

"Pro Hardbody" is SCHOR's hardbody  racing class for experience slot racers.  The intention is to create an easy and fun low-tech racing class, that permits a wide variety of new and existing hard-body HO cars to be raced together, with an emphasis on creating parity through rule (magnets and tires) adjustments.

The approved chassis for the Pro-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 M and T, brand cars.

Bodies must be any HO Hard Plastic or Resin-molded body that is commercially available and Made to Fit the HO Slot car brands listed above.

Body styles allowed for the 2017 Pro-hardbody class are restricted to mostly: GTP, LMP, & Group C & GT-LeMans style hardbodies.   Rear wings are optional and can be REMOVED on most cars (except GT) in this class (see tech for details).

No open wheel Indy/F1 style bodies will be allowed! 

In addition to the General Rules, the following requirements must also be met.

  • Hard Bodies can only be lowered utilizing a body clip (like the Viper "lower" body clip or some other brand). 
  • They must be mounted in original position  
  • Hard bodies can not be lightened.  
  • Hard body wheel wells may be minimally trimmed to improve wheel clearance (see tech director for questions) must remain in stock position
