PostSubject: *** FOFF Competition Rules ***   *** FOFF Competition Rules *** EmptyMon Mar 28, 2011 3:37 pm

COMPETITION REGULATIONS:

Each event must include at least 6 different tracks; one or more can be
timed tracks. Each track must be clearly defined with gate markers – If the tracks are close together,
any active gate should have additional markers on the left hand side.
Track gate markers, lines that show the
point zones and all absolute outer lines should be clear to everyone before doing the run.

Gate Marked Track:

Each track has a minimum of two gates, the start and the finishing gate
(300 points). Gates can be added, dividing the track into driving zones.

All gates must be at least 18 inches wide.

Each driving zone is limited by the absolute outer lines drawn into the
photo and the lines stretched through the gate markers. These gate lines
end at the absolute outer line.

No outer line can be set closer than 1 meter from the gate markers.
In critical situations, close to gates or in sharp turns, the absolute outer
lines must be set directly into the track.

Each track is divided into 5 point zones: 100 – 200 – 250 – 300 - 350.
The 250 line should be marked maximum before the finishing
gate (300 points). The 350 line only identifies a clean drive-away from
the track and should be placed no more than 3 feet from the 300 gate.
(No point deduction for reversing after the 300 gate)

The referees may give any 10 points in the first three zones, but the last
zones are not divided in. (In example; you can get 240 points, not 260).



Timed track:

Timing starts from the point where the vehicle crosses the starting line
and ends when it crosses the finishing line. Flying start and finish is used,
electronic timing equipment is preferred. If manual timing is used, there
must be three stopwatches and the meantime between the three will be
used.

The fastest driver is awarded 350 points.
Other drivers are deducted 1 point for every 1/10th of a second slower
than the fastest time.

Maximum time available for the track is three minutes.
Minimum points awarded for a track completed within 3 minutes is 150.
The track is divided into four zones. Any driver not completing the full
length is awarded 25 points for each zone entered.

If the maximum time is exceeded, the timing stops and the driver will be
awarded according to the number of zones entered.

All gates must be passed in the right direction and sequence.

Touching a gate marker is penalized by -10 points.

Minimum one wheel must touch or be within the gates markers.

Backing up and turning around is allowed without any penalty.


Start:

The starting sequence is drawn out of a hat/bowl at the drivers briefing.
If two drivers compete with the same vehicle, only one will draw and the
other placed so that half of the starting field will separate them.

After each driven track, the first drivers are moved to the back before the
next track. The number of drivers moved for each track should be equal
to the total number of drivers divided by the number of tracks.

This enrolment must be clarified before the starting sequence is drawn.
The driver must be at the starting gate within one minute after the starter
has given his signal to come. If a driver does not appear within this
minute, the track will be closed for him.

The track will also be closed for any driver that do not start within one
minute after the starter has given the signal to go.

Any driver dropping out of the race must immediately inform the
Secretary of the event.


Points, penalties:

A correctly driven course will be awarded with 350 points.

Each point zone is considered completed when the centre of both rear
wheels has passed the points line.

All gates must be passed in the right direction and sequence. Passing a
gate can only be done once; and at least one wheel must be on the far
side of a line stretched through an already passed gate.

The driver is allowed to reverse only once in each driving zone (between
two gates).

Point penalties are given as follows:
 Stops in the track and continues -10 points
 Touches a gate marker with one wheel -20 points
 Touches a gate marker with two wheels -40 points
 Touches a gate marker with three wheels -60 points
 Drives with only one wheel within/on the gate marking -100 points
 Reverses (penalized when attempting to continue) -40 points
 Destroys the track unnecessary (non sporting behaviour) -50 points

The referee stops counting points when the driver:
 Starts before the sign is given
 Rolls over
 Passes a gate incorrect
 Reverses more than one time inside a driving zone
 Goes back past the line of an already correctly passed gate
 Gets stuck or stops for more than one minute
 Touches the line of an absolute outer marker
 Releases helmet or seatbelt
 Signals the officials, giving up the attempt

Maximum penalty in one single gate is -100 points.
Point deduction for the 300 gate is 50% or regular penalty.
If a gate is not passed to award points, no penalty should be given.
The minimum points given for any track is 0 –zero-.


Results:

Winner of the event is the driver that has the highest number of points in
his class at the end of the race.

Results must be posted available to all drivers after each track throughout
the competition.

If two or more participants finish the race with equal points, the one that
have most tracks with the best score comes first. If they are still equal,
the one with best score in the last track, 2nd last and so on comes first.

just additional info for gate markers ..... RED markers are located on the right side of the gate and the white markers to be on the left ....

this gives the driver a point of reference on where to enter the gate .....

RED marker should be always on the right in the point of entry

Hi Strawb,
What are the rules for qualifying cars ?

I see on one of the links in the main FOFF thread that some are using independent suspension making Slash etc legal, I can see how a buggy based car would have a lot of advantage over solid axles.

i'll try and search for rules over at the iceland forums for RC FOFF ....

but if we do plan on moving forward with this ..... i suggest we go with

Open Chassis
Solid Axles
Maximun 13.5 wheel base length
Maximum 12.5 wheel base width
Any Motor you want to use

plus a few rules in dimensions if some want to go bodiless ..... more so not go for aesthetics and the scale look but we all go for performance very happy .... but we can put restrictions in Hood, Roof and Side Panels so we have our rigs fairly replicate a 4x4 custom vehicle

FOFF is fairly new except in some european parts of the world so if we do want to start something competitve here in UAE .... then we can contribute in making rules, restrictions and stuff to the RCC community very happy

Hi,
More than happy to go fixed axles, It would be too easy to get a slash or a buggy and put paddles on.

Dimension limits make sense - Wheelbase and track width.

Duane.

as i was saying ..... even the guys over in the US are still coming up with their own set of rules and restrictions for the FOFF class .....

click on the link

American FOFF Rules


we'll get or pattern some of whatever which will work for us over here in the UAE .....

im thinking we got enough sand here to be on the top of our game and somewhat be called "world class" very happy


most of them are for the no restriction rule bring what you got!!! ......

which sounds good and cheaper also very happy

anyways ..... this is why we have threads like these in forums like this to discuss and get the input of the masses very happy

Modified
Modified class period from 2010 to the new rules are not too much different from that of the 2009 rules,

guys heres my 2 cents

I'm not sure why there is always this big hype about rules.......if i were you guys i wouldnt bother with rules for now, just get something going and get people interested...... you all know how difficault it is to get even 3-4 guys together for a drift, race or crawl......dont make it harder....

this class is so new that nothing has been defined or proven.....you will see these rules will constantly be changing and evolving as the class grows......

this time now is all about experimentation and you dont want to limit the creativity by setting rules in place at the moment....

if you really want rules go simple.....really simple....create an open class - where anything goes!

the rules can come later, just go have some fun for now twisted evil twisted evil twisted evil twisted evil twisted evil
