RevoSlot Gr.2 Classic 1960’s

Ford Escort Mk 1

What You Need To Know – You need to not add the magnet in the box.  There are 3 car types and 10+ liveries to choose from with likely 2-4 new car types planned and 50+liveries. 

  • Motor: OEM Revo Slot RS211 “S”can in anglewinder configuration only
    • RS211 21,000 rpm, 200g*cm torque at 12v
    • RS223 Aluminium motor holder
  • Rear Tires: OEM Revo Slot RS217, 30 Shore tires are mandatory
    • The following are not legal: any other RevoSlot compound or “air” tires including Shore 22, Shore 15, any “air” tire any sponge tire in RevoSlot range  
    • Tires can be glued and trued on wheels
  • Front Tires: OEM Revo Slot RS216 hard tires are mandatory
  • Wheels: OEM Revo Slot aluminium RS218 front and rear.  All wheels should always have appropriate wheel inserts and are not permitted to run without them
    • All wheels use part # M3 screws to hold them in place
  • Guide: OEM Revo Slot. Cars come fitted with a 20mm long and 7mm deep screw-in guide. All other guides from or other manufacturers are illegal
    • Current OEM 20x7mm guide is Revo Slot part number RS-210.  It is legal
    • Another guide for wood tracks comes in the box: OEM 20x9mm guide is Revo Slot part number RS-210W.  It is legal, although we have not seen any benefits to using it. Some think it helps the car to stay in the slot, others think it can slow the car down in the turns. Pick your poison.
    • Both guides use RS210S guide steel screws to hold them in place and use the RS210SP guide spring
    • All other RevoSlot and other brand guides are illegal
  • Gears/Axles: OEM Revo Slot

    • Rear Axle: OEM Revo Slot RS222, 3mm diameter calibrated steel 46mm axles.
    • Maximum rear tracking width is 53mm (measured from outside of the tire walls).   When viewed from above the tires must not be able to be seen outside the bodywork which means some cars cannot use the full width allowed by the regulations
  • Wires/Braids: OEM RevoSlot.  You are free to replace with any brand. A good option should items wear out are braid part number SP14 and Slot,it wires part number SP22
  • Bearings: OEM Revo Slot S-410 (rear). You are free to replace the bearings with any brand of bearing.  This is the ONLY class that allows ball-race bearings of any sort. Used on the front, as well.

  • Weight: Not allowed

  • Alfa-Romeo GTA
  • Ford Escort Mk1

  • Also eligible are hybrids: defined as any plastic or resin bodied ~1960’s <2L Group 2 cars running on one of the class eligible Revo Slot chassis/ drive-train/ wheel /tire combinations.
    • The cars must specifically be approved in advance by Stephen (no exceptions and no other person can allow or disallow a hybrid car once it is approved);
    • The chassis must sit flush with the body of the car, as it is with all other class eligible cars;
    • The body must at minimum weigh the same as the average of the OEM class eligible cars.  For this class that weight is 23 grams and any makeup weight must be added to the bottom of the driver pan, not the chassis.
