Scalextric ACT - Rule

$20 for Club membership and $5 per meeting.

Race Restarts:
Only in the event of track power failure or malfunction. Not because of first lap pile ups!

In the event of a model breaking down, another model (that fits the class requirements) may be substituted but the result is a D.N.F.

With smaller numbers at some meetings, all members are expected to assist with marshalling whether involved in that particular race or not. If there is a deslot, the closest member does the marshalling.

Open to all manufacturers providing they fit the class and motor requirements. This includes bona fide cottage industries such as George Turner, RMS Resins and MMK etc. The biggest exclusion is metal chassis and ‘Womp’ style models.

Manufacturers have attempted to model a particular car. The Club endeavours to allocate a model to a class that accurately reflects their 1:1 scale racing heritage.

General Rules

May be ‘massaged’ to allow for float. An alternative body may be substituted providing it fits the class requirements and must be to scale i.e., no ‘handling’ or womp out of scale models permitted. However, all the interior fittings from the donor model must go into the replacement, no lightweight substitutes allowed. Within fair and reasonable tolerances, members are encouraged to attempt to model a 1:1 scale race-car that fits that particular class including period race livery.

Must not be visible when model is viewed from above. Any weight placed under the chassis must be covered to avoid a possible electrical short.


The accepted maximum RPM is 18,000 to 21,500. Motor downgrades are allowed providing the swap fits the class requirement and does not enhance the model’s performance. Materials for the swap are glue, plastic and screws only. No metal brackets etc.

Must be as per the manufacturer’s specification only. The pinion may be replaced with brass as long as the original ratio is retained. Ninco models may have their gears replaced with plastic Pro Race as long as original ratio is retained.

Must be as per the manufacturer’s specification for that particular model. However the wheel pattern is optional.

Any urethane or rubber. No foam, silicon or treatments allowed.
