Pin tubes must be in the original locations and may be floating or solid.  Pin tubes must be Straight and be located at 90 degrees to the centerline of the chassis. They may not be located or bent to minimise or modify chassis movement in any way. . No pin tube or attachment is allowed to any other part of  the chassis to either brace the pans or centre  section or  modify pan Movement


A small amount of material may be removed from the inside of the vertical motor bracket to correctly locate motor but the outer profile of the vertical motor bracket (if intrinsic in the design) must remain unaltered.


Motor & or rear pillar block bracing is allowed. However all must be located BEHIND the leading edge of the motorcan and strictly within the confines of the chassis.

The Minimum rear axle height (when measured from the underside of the chassis to the top surface of the rear axle) is 8.5mm.

Soldering or gluing of additional fittings of any kind may not be attached in any way to the standard chassis to facilitate Lead wire attachment. However a piece of lexan or tape across the opening in the centre section to prevent lead wires dropping is acceptable providing it does not modify chassis movement.

Lead may be attached to the top of the chassis to adjust balance and weight distribution but in no way must this adjust or be seen to modify chassis movement.


Front Wheel option for closed body classes - Falcon 1/32 sports Production, Falcon Pro 1/32 Sports and 1/24 Falcon Sports & 1/24 Falcon Pro sports

2 dimensional front wheels appropriately placed on the body are permitted instead of  rotating front wheels. These fronts must look realistic, including a black tyre and wheel detail (Not just a black circle!). These fronts may be stickers. They

Welcome to the 2015 falcon pro Home page!

We now have venues finalised for 2015 Falcon Pro!

After some consideration and dialogue with racers there will also be a new "sub class" in 1/24 sports which runs along the same lines as the Pinewood Enduro series. It is believed this may give options for racers who are already using GT12 chassis with FK motors and also give current racers the opportunity to run a tougher car in this class if they wish, or stick with what they have. Both 1/24 sports classes will qualify out together (much like the 1/32 sports class at present and will have a separate points table). The new subclass will be called 1/24 Sports Pro, same bodies and rules as per the present 1/24 class but allowing any laser GT12 type chassis with a chassis kit price of less than £30, so the consideration is still very focused on low cost racing.  Looking forward to a great, low cost, fub & competitive years racing in 2015!


Please note;- to count double points at the final, racers must race 3 rounds. This may include the final round, however, racers who have completed  3 or more rounds prior to the final will carry their best 3 scores to the final and then count double points for the final in addition.
