Bodyshells
In the past we saw far too many new body shells being released, meaning that racers often had to panic buy to get the latest hot ticket in time for the next round and only a matter of hours to paint them, which intern meant we had a lot of one colour wonders.

Therefore, only bodyshells that are available to the public and are listed on the BRCA list on the 1st of October 2021 ahead of Round 1 are allowed to get used throughout the entire MICC2.1 championship.

We believe this rule will keep our racing fair and competitive throughout the whole championship and produce some awesome looking race paint.

Specific Bodyshell Requirments - Touring Car
All bodies must have lights (front & rear) and grill, painted (from inside) or using decals. No sharpie outlines or colouring in.

Specific Bodyshell Requirments - Formula 1
Only Formula 1 body styles are allowed. Body must be painted in a race inspired theme. Single colour themes are allowed but you must use the included sticker sheet to detail the car. All cars must have a driver’s figure installed in the cockpit.

Body must be used as designed. No additional material may be added to alter the body unless it is included in the original design. Body must be cut-out and used as designed and no additional folding or bending of the body is allowed.

Motors
Any motor can/will be checked at random by one of the MiCC team using a Fantom Fact Machine 3. The Fact Machine 3 accurately checks the internal resistance of a motor. Any motor that is found to be below the ROAR minimum figures will be asked to remove their motor and the FTD time deleted. These checks can be during tech or in the pits. We will see any motor that is in your car as your race motor.

Minimum Internal Resistance Figures
13.5T – 20.6 @ 25 degrees C
17.5T – 35.4 @ 25 degrees C
21.5T – 55.6 @ 25 degrees C

LiPo’s
The MiCC will allow any commercially available hard cases 2s LiPo.
The LiPo must be charged and discharged in a LiPo charging bag.

Max. Battery voltage: 8.40 Volts
Max. Charging current: 12 Amps
Max. Discharging current: 20 Amps

Voltages and rates above will be check randomly by the MiCC Team.

If a driver comes to technical inspection with 8.44 volts or more, he/she is not allowed to start his/her next heat.
If the LiPo voltage is 8.41 to 8.43 volts the driver is allowed to discharge the battery down to 8.40 volts by accelerating and braking the car while holding it in his hands until the battery voltage is down to 8.40V.

Transponders
We will be using MyLaps RC4 decoders so you must have either an Mylaps RC4 or newer styles of MRT transponder. Click here for a table of compatible transponders.

It is the responsibility of the competitor to ensure that a compatible transponder is fitted to their car at all times. There will be no manual counting.

*Note some MRT PTX style transponders do work with our decoders. These can be identified from the older versions when the transponder is first powered on it will blink blue 3 times. This type is compatible.

Additive
CS High Grip is the control additive.
There will be a designated additive area for application of the control additive. Tires can only be cleaned with break cleaner. All tyres must be wiped before entering the track area, tyres will be checked during technical inspection before each heat. If the tyres are seen to be wet, we will ask you to wipe your tyres and resubmit your car for inspection.

Tyre Warmers
Tyre Warmers are not allowed.

Scrutineering
Scrutineering will be doing post-race. Once you finish your run, you must put your car on the cars off table at scrutineering, even if you do not start or break during the run. Failure to do so will result in a DQ from that round.

Marshaling
You must marshal the 2nd race after your own. This means you will race, have a one race break, and then you will marshal the race after that. This is to allow us to keep to time and so we are not waiting for marshals. You must marshal from your designated number point. Hi-vis jackets must be worn whilst marshalling, marshalling is mandatory even if you DNS or DNF. Failure to return your car and transmitter to scrutineering or leaving your marshal post unattended will mean you lose your time for that round.

BRCA Membership - Full BRCA membership is required.
