Cartie Tech' Spec' Summary
The various events across the UK all have subtly different rules covering cartie dimensions, weights, etc. As an aid to race teams and event organisers, the SCA has published an overview of the more common rule sets and has derived a set of universal dimensions that would comply with all the rules currently in use (Universal Cartie) and a set of measurements that would include carties built for every event (Universal Event).
This makes it easier for teams and organisers to make informed decisions when building their carties or drafting/reviewing their construction rules.
At the moment, the derived specifications are;
|Dimension||Universal Event||Universal Cartie|
|Max Weight (dry) Kg||100||80|
|Max Length mm||3000||2000|
|Max Width mm||1500||1118|
|Max Track mm||1118|
|Max Wheelbase mm||2000|
|Min Track mm||700||700|
|Min Eye Line mm||700|
|Min Ground Clearance mm||150|
|Brake Force KgF||40||50|
|Roll Bars||Optional||2 roll bars & forward protection|
