Like every event the details and entry forms are available on the host tracks web site:
Entry forms are about to go live, so keep an eye out on the Perth Motorplex site.
Well start discussing them guys….. lol
Seriously, rules discussions shouldn’t be limited just when rules proposals are considered or voted on. The whole idea of this forum is for sensible discussions on all APSA matters.
Ive always said that if the majority of racers of a class want a change then lets go for it, providing it doesnt hurt the sport. The committee is more than fair when it comes to any improvement to class numbers, fairness and progress.
fatvh, well done mate!!!
We are updating the top ten lists across the board, and will be a few more days as we DEFINITELY haven’t forgotten about our members that have reset records!
Please send us your time slip so we get the info correct and have it on file – firstname.lastname@example.org
Well done again Dave!
The calendar is up to date with 100% locked in rounds.
We are working on a couple of rounds between now and the finals, and as soon as anything changes we will let all members know.
The option is to maybe run one more at Willowbank in Oct, and still run a round at Calder when the track is done.
Either way we have 2 more rounds locked in:
Benaraby on 22nd August
Sydney Grand finals in November.
As soon as it changes Members will be advised right away.
Points have been allocated for travel, Top qualifying and first round and as far as I know there weren’t any records.
They should be posted up in the next few days…
Unfortunately a TH350 will not take any decent HP, especially behind a blown engine. If you are really stuck on a 3 speed, you will have to go for a TH400.
Then it does get a little complicated about the level of HP you want to put it through, and how many billet components you want to put in it. I run a Rossler XHD by Raceglides, and they are well known for handling HP levels of 3000+ (wish I made that much).
Best advise i can give you is make sure you just don’t buy out of the USA as you will have to service/repair/maintain it, and need someone local to look after all the problems you WILL encounter.
Good pick up Mr. CVE
Those do not apply to Outlaw 10.5 and Extreme. Pro Street has not required an alternator for as long as I can remember and well need to tidy them up. For classes that require a radiator (all except the above), I am pretty sure the requirement is that it remains in front of the engine – however there may be combinations that that is not possible and would require an exception.
Why you ask two dogs???
Thanks for the props Debenz…
That was quick!!!
Yeah, youll be able to tell whos a member and who isnt with the Membership Decals thats for sure. Its a hard thing to do to keep reminding people that they need to be a member to race the series and accumulate points, etc…
Thanks to all those that have been diligent and renewed their membership.
Please dont assume I am for or against any of these rules.
Im just trying to establish what was already agreed to (Radial vs the Word) and what was already posted up as complete rules.
As a side issue, the Outlaw Radial rules have completely different weights (much heavier), Engine/turbo combos, and chassis allowances – so if that what you are saying be aware, as it will completely change the class.
You cant just pick and choose the parts out of a set of rules that suit you, and leave out the parts that make up the entire package and allow it to work. Keep in mind both Outlaw Radial and Outlaw Radial vs the World have gone through quite a bit of ‘finessing’ by our USA counterparts over the last 3-6 years to where they are now to make them fair and both work.
At the end of the day, they are rules that have been up since start of 2014, However if the majority Outlaw Radial members want to modify them then thats a different discussion.
Again, I think its a case of people not completely understanding what they agreed to, as an objective outsider looking in.
Correct If i am wrong
But to be in the National top ten you have to have run those times at a APSA event
To be in a state by state eg SA or VIC etc top ten, you just need your car to be verified by a APSA delegate.
I ask for a SA top ten list some time ago, which MR Habbib organised for SA
but have struggled to get more than 2 cars for each class.
So what are you suggesting?
To date I have had no SA member present a time card for inclusion. Until that happens what can I do ?

So with out sounding like a pest and asking a question that has already possibly been answered either here or on the Facebook and me not understanding it, can any car CURRENTLY run a 29×10.5(non W) slick or is it not wrote clearly in the rules and this was intend to give the 28/9 sports compact style cars somewhere to race?
Are the rules staying as they are for a period of time at the moment or are they going to be re looked at as my car is also being redone at the moment , just if there is going to be major changes I’ll hold out, I don’t have a problem with the rules (less this radial tire drama) but just would be good to know what is planed ahead for the class?
Andrew, the way the rules read they are crystal clear that you can run a Slick in any style car that meets all the other rules in OR. I think if the intention was to limit Slicks to 4/6 & rotaries it would be written that way.
Just to clear it up, as you can see from the post below when these rules were suggested and agreed to – its not Outlaw Radial that was introduced…. Its was Radial Vs the World which allows radial cars to race against Slick cars in an anything goes style:
So all the people that were ‘allegedly consulted and agreed to” as stated in the above thread were:
Franky dandy engines
Keth vt from cv
Please dont take this as me blaming anyone, just trying to point out how it come about and where from and how long ago (Jan 2014).
Im sure Craig Brewer can give you some guidance on that, so just give him a call.
I think you would be hard pressed to find a Capri, LJ, etc that hasnt had any floor section replaced, but to “fabricate” a complete new floor would be a much different thing.
I think that the True Street class is aimed and meant for the Purest types of Street cars with the least amount of modifications to the actual car and engine swaps/types etc, in all of the APSA classes.
There has been much discussion about bringing this class closer to True Street cars, so allowing a pure racing style transmission in this type of class would be out of the realms of the rules intended.
Lets perhaps get some views of the people like Tocca, or Janelle, Dean McMahon, and some of the other regulars…
While we are asking questions, in Outlaw Radial there is no weight for a roots blown small block. Can I assume its the same as a pro-charged small block and single turbo small block @ 2600 pound. There is only one weight for roots blown cars @ 3100 which I assume is for big block?? There is also no weight for a screw blown small block just in case anyone is brave enough to try??
It does appear to be silent on what engine the 3100lbs is meant for, looking at the logic there it is”probably” aimed at BBlocks.
Is anyone running one that combo???
Thats a good point guys….
Have a look at the records clause on our general rules.
Maybe we need an SA APSA event to give all you SA a chance to do it??? What do you think? Will we get a decent number of competitors???
