It's all pretty simple. 4 tires, 4 shocks, chassis, Cage, Wing size, headers. Basically any Sprintcar made today conforms to these rules. Even an old style gear box car of yesteryear would work. My old Cw Direct Drive car from 18 years ago is legal.

I do suggest that you go to the Dirt Oval.com link and read up. However, the rules are very simple. The last thing I am sure Gary wants is to have to police another class. So keeping the rules as they are is a great idea. It is very easy to tech this class. You just need a scale and the ability to look at the little blinking light on the Esc.

It's gonna be a great class for sure. Can't wait to get out there and mix it up with so many drivers. Just need to finish up my castor wheels to put on top of my cage for when I wreck. It's much faster that way - lol

DODC rules are 52 oz. it's in the general chassis rules, not the sprint body rules.

depending on the car you may have to add about an ounce if you're not running a wing.

I am still learning about oval sprint racing. I think that KOZ is right on about the rules. I read the DODC rules and I think they would a perfect fit for the ground pounder sprint class. It did't mention the mininum weight, but I think its 52oz. Here is the website with the current rules.

I hope this helps anyone that might be confused about whats legal and whats not...

Greg,

Tower hobbies carries Custom works. Bumps and jumps also carries all of your Custom Works parts and others. Kipps Hobbies. Left hander rc. Jrc (Jeffrey racing concepts?)

There are some more, but I think that will get you started. Also I do believe that Jake is going to be stocking Custom Works products and probably can order what ever you need.

These new gearbox cars are nothing like they were when you and I raced in the old days. These cars are extremely fast and with the new transmissions only have 3 gears in them. They have very little resistance. I am amazed at these cars. Also we have so much power over yesteryear that the transmission really isn't any issue anymore. You would be fine purchasing a standard Gbx2 or the newer Gbx3. Either car will be great for an old guy like yourself

This topic has this old dirt oval racer's attention. I hope the rules are firmed up soon enough to allow us interested parties time to build a car. Please give them plenty of power(13.5 any ESC) and allow direct drive and gearbox to start the class off. The transmissions can always be seperated later if the class takes off. Anybody got any links of sites to buy sprint cars?

Thanks Guys, I am pretty much an on-road rookie, but i have a Mugen MTX4 that Jay Smith set up for me and I'm itching to get some track time with it. I bet I could talk Jay into bringing out his Nitro Sedan too.

Ford, Can you fuel my car? Please LOL!

Joe, several of the dirt oval manufacturers are cottage industry type of builders. They have day jobs or do other things as well besides just sell RC cars, so producing awesome cars and parts is usually job #1 helping people at the track, filling orders, and developing more awesome cars and parts is usually job #2. websites and advertising unfortunately fall a distant third. Also, often times their email and pm skills fall a little short, but I've never had a problem getting any of the manufacturers on the phone provided it's not a big race weekend. Dirt oval is not part of the "click to buy" rc comunity, for the most part, it's a much more personal world. Heck, I had a couple questions for Todd Putnam today and called him on my lunch break, I had to get him off the phone after about 30 minutes so I could actually eat, but in that 30 minutes the knowledge and understanding I got was equal to hours and hours of trying to get it out of a forum.

If you haven't allready, join DirtOval.com all the major manufacturers have forums on there, tons of infomation! In the meantime I'll post up some pics of the JRC and the Pemberton.

On a side note, I know Mike Jeffery and Todd Putnam are launching new websites soon, from my conversation with Todd today his website sounds like it's going to be pretty cool, with interactive setup database and what not.

The current rules allow for both. We should leave it at that. Let's not start making changes now. That will for sure kill it before it starts. Either direct drive or gear box should be allowed. My 13.5 car will be a direct drive car for Jen and mine will be a gear box for the moment.

If the schedule is similar to last year then my family and I will be coming direct from Botw races from the previous day. The last thing I would want or anyone else from Sacramento is to have to make a ton of changes. I know we are only a small group at this point, but that group can become larger if the rules are the same as BOTW

Just my 2 cents. Take it for what it's worth

Jake- Not sure, I'm currently the only person on the west coast right now with a direct drive Hyperdrive\Gfrp car.. I ran both direct drive  and transmission same day testing on our high bite dirt oval, lap times were super close with a nonboosted 13five car, both also took a different set-up. and drove differently . Only real advantage is in the 17five classes,were rotating weight makes a little difference. I have alot less $$$ in a direct drive than any of my transmission cars..

 we need to stick to what 99% of what rules are being run out west so we can maybe get some more entries from Sac area.. 

The dynotech car isn't a transmision car, there are also belt drive cars out there as well.

GP club oval racing should be the best in many  years with the additions,and minor tweaks!! sure hope we get a warm-up race in march!!!!!!!

Man I'm so stoked for this class I can hardly see straight!

On another note, why are ALL dirt oval MFG websites unusable?  I mean, is this like a prerequisite to be a d/o chassis maker? 

Even the CW site is terrible and I would have to think CW has the funding??

I have yet to find a picture of a HD car or the JRC....or the pemberton.....or....yeah.

If you are a D/O chassis maker and you are reading this....  Email me.

Sorry for the rant but I couldn't take it anymore! haha

I'm going to chime in on the D/D topic, I honestly never saw a difference with 13.5 between a well built gearbox and a D/D car. 17.5 I think it might be slightly noticeable, but even at the national level they do not segregate between D/D and gearbox, and a D/D car drives much different than a gearbox car, so there is give and take for both setups. As far as it keeping cost down I know Mike Jeffery from JRC and I believe Dustin Malicot from Hyperdrive will sell a D/D car for the same price as a gearbox car.

In my opinion, people that want to spend the money on drive train will do so anyway, by the time you put full ceramics, lightened outdrives and a lightened gearset in a gearbox car you've spent the same about the same a D/D conversion with ceramics.
