I think a list of eligible bodies would be a good starting point as many of the bodies produced are way too wide.
Since I am not in posession of all the Can Am body shells, this is where I'm going to need some help. Googling only goes so far, so if anybody out there has some useful info on eligible shells that would be of great help. It may be that some out of scale bodies might have to be allowed with a penalty assessed.
The perfect is the enemy of the good. BETTA AND CLASSIC Lola T70 is 55.75mm in width at it's widest point.

I'm thinking of 'carving' a Hamill S3. There are plenty of pictures but I can't find any information on dimensions - wheelbase, track, wheel sizes etc. Does anyone have any ideas? I may have to resort to a Brabham BT8 Oldsmobile instead.
I'm starting a rough draft of some rules, referring to the VRAA and others. This discussion is very helpful, thanks, all.
Where I am totaly at sea is how to scare up hosting venues. I would love to be present for one, so I plan to go hat-in-hand to the Austin Slot Car club to see if they would be interested in hosting an event on their beautiful track. Anyone have any connections there?
I Just remembered ,they built a car for me last year.I got a niece living in Austin and she wanted to offer me a present when she visited us last May so she learned from my daughter about my hobby and visited them and had a Slot.it Porsche 956 built in Texas colours livery,i'll post a photo.
A change of mind on my entry if the series goes ahead. I discovered the Wolverine LD65 during another trawl of the 1966 cars. There are plenty of photographs of the car as raced by Jerry Hansen and of the car as it is today. The wheelbase (2,350mm) and track dimensions(F 1,340mm, R 1,360mm) are available on Ultimate Car Page and there are a couple of photographs of some of the drawings from which I've worked out the likely width of the car. I can't prove it but I believe it to have been 1,728mm, or thereabouts, wide giving an overall 1/32 scale width of 54mm. Is that going to satisfy eligibility criteria, please? I don't want to start making drawings and carving if it doesn't.
