Before anyone comments about not being able to run x or y, just remember how restrictive the Tamiya Euro cup was back in the day. In that it had to be a Tamiya item sold by Hobby Co.

The rules have been more relaxed and not as restrictive to encourage people to come out to play and have a good day out.

On body shells, they don't need to be a Tamiya body but still need to be a scale/recognizable representation of a real car. For example HPI make some nice bodys for the M chassis cars.

Some Q and A's which are supplemental to the PDF that can be downloaded 2 posts up.

Can any manufacturer's shell be used? Yes. As long as it represents a proper recognisable car. :thumbsup:

Standard TC Class: Can I add gear diffs that I can tune with different oils? Diff will still work, but will try 1,000,000 cst in the front to resemble a spool, but will still retain a diff operation? No. Diffs built as per kit.

Standard TC Class: Can I use U/J's? No.

Standard TC Class: Can I use a hi torque servo saver? Yes. It doesn't effect performance of chassis. :thumbsup:

Is the TA-02RS eligible? Yes. :thumbsup:

Does equipment need to be ROAR approved? No.

Standard TC Class: Can the hop up prop shaft be used? Yes. :thumbsup:

Which wings can be used on the Touring Car Classes? Touring Car Wings for all 3 classes: Commercially available SCALE Wings can be fitted to body shells to replace damaged/lost wings. Wings cannot be added to bodies that didn't originally come with one. Emphasis on scale.

Can additive be used on tyres? Yes. :thumbsup: except the ones with Wintergreen.

Can we use tyre warmers? Yes. :thumbsup:

Can the chassis be modified to accommodate LiPo's which don't quite fit? No for M-Chassis and Stock Touring Car classes. For the other classes (F1, GT TC, TRF TC), any chassis modifications to enable batteries to fit need to be ok'd prior to the event. Please try to avoid these modifications. Some rounded LiPo's such as the Brainergy and Core-RC are the same size as NiMh batteries.

Is the carbon reinforced TA-04R eligible? Yes :thumbsup:, but not in the Stock Touring Car Class.

Can the later 2 hole batteries holders be used on the M-chassis and TL-01? Yes :thumbsup:. Tamiya items #50793 and #53336.

Can I run a motor heatsink in Stock Touring Car? Yes :thumbsup:. Heatsinks or Fans are ok in all classes.

Are shock springs limited to kit in Stock Touring Car? No.

The FF-01 didn't have aftermarket turnbuckles. Are turnbuckles allowed that will fit? Yes :thumbsup:.

TA-02 has ball diff in the back and a geared diff in the front. Can I swap the diffs around so the ball diff is in the front? This is for stock class. No.

It's a stock class so no chassis mod's. The alternative is to use NiMh's.

Hi guys,
I've recently been told about this by a friend of mine, and after a few years out of it I'm really excited about the hobby again, with the prospect that I might be able to join in. After donkeys years of playing about with Tamiya models, I'd love to actually have a go at racing one... Whether or not I can bring myself to take my shelf queen Porsche out of retirement is another thing entirely, but I'll figure something out.
I've not really done any proper racing (bar a couple of casual races with a Marder/ Revo) so I may need to ask a couple of muppet questions about signing up (particularly regarding transponders and selecting my level), so apologies in advance :D

If the Iconic Cup is teasing chaps out of retirement or encourages newbies to give racing a whirl then mission accomplished. We will look after rookies all the way through and please ask as many questions as you need to. Either on here or contact me on john@iconicrc.com

Yep, a bit of both for me! I stopped when I sold all my off road toys to buy a half decent touring car, then I went to one indoor meeting and found it so deadly serious that I lost all interest before I really started. Since hearing about this, the touring car is up on eBay, to raise the funds for breathing some new life into the old ones in the loft! :thumbsup:
I'll arrange BRCA membership asap, then get myself booked in.

Is there going to be anyone selling spares at either of the rounds? And are we going to witness the legendary iconicrc wheelie truck races at these meetings?:D

Iconic
23-02-2016, 08:49 AM
Mike, We haven't lined up a pit shop for this inaugural year. We'll see how we go and look to include one for next year. I'd recommend taking a few tyre options. We will post up tyre advice from each club in due course when they've done some testing for the event.

We thought about a wheelie race but wanted to keep focus for the day on the main racing so ruled it out. Again, we'll assess this year's event and see about a fun/support race for next year if we think it'll fit. We do have the Italian Job Coach and the Mini Coopers for a lunchtime display though. :thumbsup:

The track at West London will be open this Sunday if you fancy a play. Dress warmly though.
As to grades, I will have a look at what times people are doing on the Saturday and make any adjustments that I feel are necessary. At the moment it is only the stock class that has more than one heat but that will no doubt change.

I hope the 540 touring class & the M-chassis classes get a good turnout.

It might demonstrate that you don't need a million scale HP to have fun!

Some of the greatest races I ever took part in was using a humble M-chassis Mini cooper with a silver can.

The only rule change I'd propose is a very cheap, durable control tyre :)

Yep. Both are TA04 chassis. I'm reclaiming my eurocup glory days :)

The left one was a kit standard shelf queen that I've hopped up to almost Pro spec, and the one on the right was a used ebay find that simply needed a bit of a clean up with some serpent cleaning gum.

I'm on the lookout for ball diffs for the GT spec chassis, and I'm planning on using it for a bit of 13.5t touring car racing :thumbsup:

If you know anyone who has a couple of TA04 ball diffs knocking around I'd be happy to hear from them.

I'm going to enter GT class, although she's a bit light on hop-ups for the class, but I don't currently have the budget for buying another motor & ESC for this. Besides, I'm only in it for the fun.

I honestly cannot wait for the Broxtowe meeting, I have waited for years in hope that the Eurocup would re-emerge in some form or another.

It's a pity there is only two rounds but from the photos I've seen on FB it looked like a great days racing, shame I missed round 1.

I'll be racing in M-chassis and Tamiya Touring car, I do have a couple of questions about the Touring car class.

1. What dampers and springs can I use?
2. Is the alloy prop shaft allowed on the TT-01?

All going well, the Iconic Cup will be expanded next year. West London was a huge success and Broxtowe will be too without a doubt.

This year was always going to be a test to gauge interest, hence just the 2 rounds.

For next year, the rules will be tweaked where appropriate (maybe not at all) and then I hope to expand the Cup to either 3 or 4 rounds. Best 2 of 3 to count or best 2 of 4 to count. I already have another track in mind and WLRC and BMCC will get first dibs.

Regarding Snetterton. We've held excellent Iconic Meets there in recent years. Brilliant track. It isn't a BRCA club though and there's no timing equipment and the whole place is very run down. It won't be an Iconic Cup venue.

Whilst I love cotswolds, the prospect of running sport tuned motors on a track that size doesn't appeal. While running 13.5 boosted touring car at the Clubmans I had time to think 'I wish i was running Mod' while driving down that back straight! lol

If the classes remain the same with the fastest classes only running 13.5 blinky its a risky going to 'big' tracks as it does encourage some drivers to really push the limits with gearing and then the event can become expensive. And M Chassis with sport tuned ... time for a nap while on the straight.

In advance of tomorrow's grand finale at Broxtowe, here is some great news for 2017.

Thanks to all clubs that expressed an interest. I intend to grow this gradually and went for tracks/clubs I know and are geographically positioned to make it easier for people to pick at least 2 from the 4 based on where they're driving from. Bigger tracks will have shortened laps to suit the motors/gearing. Best 2 of 4 counts towards the championship. Tweaked rules announced soon. Dates announced in January. John.

Excellent news John. And the prospect of a shortened Cotswolds is great as its a great place to race. 4 very good venues which i imagine will elevate the Iconic Cup into something very special, just like the way the Revival has grown. ��

Another epic days racing despite very challenging conditions! Lost a speedo (apparently water and Lrp runner don't mix) and my ta01 has now had enough. Rebuild needed lol. But I'll settle for a shock 3rd in the overall m chassis standings. And my bro was smiling all 130 miles home about his raffle or should I say lottery prize of the Tamiya kit. At least it stopped him moaning about his car for the rest of the day. Small mercies. Thanks John and all at iconicrc and the clubs involved for a very cool series. Roll on next year:thumbsup:
