I don’t think we should lock this, this will become a place of rule discussion as Fredvon4 mentioned

What are your thoughts on that?

Hi Luke! Thank you so much for your time! I know how precious it is. I brought this up because I thought it might attract entrants who might not have much space for a circle-circuit.. but want to enter a rod for the contest. Well............... I'm not sure how small "too small" is.. Huh... Safety is obviously a concern. Theoretically; any diameter can be lap-timed. There should be a "tether" though; meaning a flexible cable as opposed to a rigid-link.

Alright I’ll do some research and see how small it can practically get

I’ll write rules later this week or sometime next week, still very busy with ground school.

Has the possibility of axle driven cars come up? It would definitely open up the door for more entries.

May I suggest the diameter should be determined by the builder for best effect on the model? Make the race over "a distance," and do the math for number of laps for a declared diameter to run the distance. That would be Distance divided by Circumference equals number of laps required (D/(Pi x DIA)), if I have my math right.

Re: driven wheels...sounds like another contest! Respectfully, this one is Prop-Rod. But look out! Davidll1984 builds wheel-driven vehicles. My money is on him for that contest.

That would eliminate my Cox Corvette, but open the door for my Cox driven tri-motor tether plane???????? I see no reason why there should not be an axle driven category.

I have a jerobee, it could probably compete in the axle competition somehow, but I think this one should stick to prop powered
