Tamiya DT03 Buggy Racing at Adur
For summer 2022 we are opening a new Tamiya DT03 class. This popular car is raced locally and many of our members own a version of this 1/10th 2WD off-road chassis. The base kit is inexpensive, spares are available, and in the right hands DT03 can perform brilliantly on the short track option here at ADUR.
The DT 02/03 Class
We want to make this an accesible class for as many as possible, whether you are a novice looking for a step into 1/10th before committing to a more expensive chassis or someone who just loves racing, or Tamiya, and is looking for a second class to enter into.
Any DT02/03 Variant
Motor Limit 17.5T Brushless or 20T Brushed
Any ESC but brushless only in "blinky" mode
6-Cell NiMH or 2 Cell Lipo hard cased batteries
No gearbox modifications APART from ballraces and ball diff
17T or 19T pinion only
Any off-road rubber tyres that would fit the supplied wheels, and front axle hex kits permitted to allow hex wheels and wheels can be changed if track width maintained
Hop ups - Alloy wishbones and hubs plus damper and spring upgrades permitted inc towers, bling items that dont affect performance permitted
As a new category we will review our rules to ensure they are suited to get the best from your time at the track and to make racing fair and competitive.
