?The maximum machine dimensions allowed are 800mm x 600mm x 400mm. 
?The machine should only be propelled by an IC Engine of maximum capacity 4.6 ccs. Other mechanisms such as throttling, braking, steering etc. can be controlled using DC motors and servos. The propulsion systems must not be based on DC motors. 
?It is mandatory to have an onboard power supply system to power the servos and at no point in time should the voltage of the power supply be greater than 13V. 
?The machine should be controlled by a wireless remote control mechanism throughout the race. The remote control must use a frequency of band spectrum 2.4 GHz to avoid frequency clash during the event. 
?It is mandatory to design and manufacture the following parts of the machine - Chassis, Steering mechanism (Heim joints and the steering rods), shock towers and suspension arms. You may also incorporate an anti-roll bar and impact attenuators (bumpers) for the safety of your vehicles in case a collision occurs. 
?Participants can use a ready-made braking system for their car. 
?Gears, differential gear, engine, springs, shock absorbers, servo motors (non-propulsion purposes only), batteries, wheels, wheel hub are allowed to be used as available in the market. 
?The machine must not be made from Lego parts, or any ready-made assembly kits other than the parts mentioned above. 
?Participants can also employ a cooling mechanism to keep their electronics cool. 
?Judging will be strict and the participant will be immediately disqualified in case their car is found to violate any of the above machine specifications. 
?In case of any doubt regarding any specification, feel free to contact any of the event managers.
