Stock Drag Class Body Rules

  1. Stock Aurora, Johnny Lightning, Auto World, Furuli or Mead Brothers body, any year(s) up through 1970. No cutting of the fender wells, bumpers or thinning of the body material. The body posts may be trimmed but once mounted on the chassis the body posts must be in contact with the chassis once both screws are in place (no gap between the post and chassis once mounted). Basically - no body mods at all (except for rule # 2 for window(s) and/or bumper(s) when painting the body & body post length trimming).
  2. Painting & decaling the bodies is allowed. Window(s) and/or bumper(s) may be removed to facilitate painting however the plastic stub that the window(s) and/or bumper(s) orients onto must still be attached to the body. The portion that needs to be ground off to remove the window(s) and/or bumper(s) may be ground off permanently. Super glue or a soldering iron may be used to re-attach the window(s) and/or bumper(s) to the body.
  3. Two metal screws will be used to mount the body to the chassis. Screws can be made of any metallic material. Screws can have a flat head to aid in track clearance.
  4. No adding ballast or weighting of the body or chassis is allowed.

If need be, the motor will be ohmed when it has not been run for at least 30 minutes and has cooled down to 70 degrees room temp. Motor must remain untouched (no balancing/air-gapping/de-winding/soldering), the comm plate may be gently cleaned up but not surfaced on a lathe.

No adding clear silicone to the contact patch/outside edge of the tires. No soaking the tires in any solution to change their softness.
