On Road Oval – RJ Speed Legend

R/C LEGENDS are of a strong, simple design to create a class of racing that is inexpensive, yet challenging enough for fun racing and if the rules are kept the same everywhere, racers will be able to go from track to track easily.

LEGAL BODIES

RJS1016 LEG. 34 COUPE, RJS1017 LEG. 37 SEDAN, RJS1018 LEG. 40 COUPE, RJS1035 LEG 34 SEDAN, RJS1036 LEG 37F COUPE, RJS1044 LEG 37F SEDAN, RJS1045 LEG 37C COUPE, RJS1046 LEG 37D COUPE, BL 2244 34 F COUPE, BL 2267 37 D COUPE, BL 2270 34 F SEDAN, BL 2290 37 C COUPE, BL 2291 37 F SEDAN, BL 2294 37 F COUPE, BL 2295 37 C SEDAN, BL 2296 40 F COUPE OCT.

SUGGESTED MOTORS AND BATTERIES:
Traxxas 12T brushed motor
2S 7.4 Lipo Battery

CHASSIS & CAR DIMENSIONS:
WHEELBASE 9.3 TO 9.4 INCHES
FRONT WIDTH 7 3/4 + 1/4
REAR WIDTH 7 7/8 TO 8 3/8 IN.
ROOF HEIGHT 5” MIN. FROM GROUND
FRONT TIRE WIDTH 1.1 TO 1.25 IN.
REAR TIRE WIDTH 1.9 TO 2.1 IN.
MAX. TIRE DIAMETER 2.6 IN.
SUGGESTED MIN. WEIGHT 34 OZ. RTR

The reason for the development of R/C LEGENDS cars, and these rules is to create inexpensive racing for beginners and experienced racers alike. The whole idea is to put racing back to driving skill and care in car setup, rather than money for the latest technology, the expense of which drives most racers out of r/c racing.

We suggest setting up R/C LEGENDS racing with a separate class for beginner drivers. They should be allowed to do almost nothing to change the car. That way they will spend their time taking care of their car and Learning how to drive better, instead of shopping for more motors and batteries to go faster (and crash harder).

We realize that on certain tracks, gear ratios and tire compounds could be changed to make the cars go faster. However, the most important item to remember is that we are trying to create an even and fun class of racing.

Keeping the legends stock will give beginners a good, inexpensive place to start ( and stay if they wish) .
1. The first rule is that if the rules do not specifically state that you can do something, YOU CANNOT DO IT.
2. Absolutely no changes to the configuration of the chassis or cutting on the chassis parts. No replacement parts of graphite or other higher tech materials.
3. Any location of receiver and speed control on top of the battery plate is Allowed. Steering servo may be mounted on the front axle plate, or under the long battery tray.
4. No changes in the steering blocks, axle ,or springs. Shims are allowed on springs to stiffen front ends. May also add the front kingpin brace ( 5240) to help prevent front axle breakage in severe wrecks. You may put a washer behind the e-clip on the front axle to stop it from pulling thru the steering block.
5. Original front steering rods can be bent as needed, if the steering servo is mounted on the front axle plate. Double lock collars are allowed on each side of the steering linkage to prevent slippage.
6. Factory front bumper must remain on the car.
7. Ball bearings allowed anywhere on the cars.
8. No changes allowed to rear axle or differential. No ceramic or carbide diff balls or drive rings allowed. No 64 pitch gears– must use original type 81 tooth 48 pitch diff gear . No lightweight rear axles. No thrust bearings allowed, except one in the diff assembly. Steel pinions only.
9. You may change the left side (setscrew) hub to 5313 nylon/aluminum Hybrid hub only, or use 1/4 “ spacer on the left side with the original 5311 hub, and 5309 narrow diff hub to narrow the rear track. Reducing the track width of the car can increase rear traction if needed.
10. Only genuine R/C LEGENDS bodies are allowed as replacements NO changes allowed from trim lines, except for 1/4 “ tolerance around wheels. Body must be painted & all windows clear or cut out. It is legal to reinforce the inside of the body where the side posts go thru with tape or scrap lexan from the wheel cutouts.
11. No rollover or stiff antennas allowed. Antenna may be mounted inside the body for small tracks where radio range is not a problem.
12. Only Legends kit tires or legends/spec tires on factory wheels are allowed.
13. Tires must be mounted in the direction shown in the kit instructions ( No reversing front tires).
14. Battery pack must remain in the stock location, down the center of the chassis between the frame rails.
15. Must use original equip. pinion gear (21 or 22 tooth 48 pitch STEEL)
16. RJS5246 3 PC. FRONT AXLE PLATE ALLOWED TO FACILITATE QUICK FRONT END REPAIRS.
17. REVERSE: not normally allowed, but could be a local option.
18. Races should be set at 5 or 6 minutes.
19. Track size: R/C LEGENDS can be raced on any size R/C track, oval or road course. We recommend that if you’re setting one up, make the straight sections fairly short so , that driving the turns is more important than top speed.
