All of the chassis and body parts that come with the Scale Auto car as described in Art. 1.1.0. (a) must be used.

The different sized body suspension supports SC8126a-e are considered spacers.
|(c)||Scale Auto tuning parts including the carbon spring plates and rear suspension etc. are NOT permitted.|
|(d)||Scale Auto supplies different height axle holders to allow for different riding heights, thus SC-8147a-d are all legal.

|(e)||The ground clearance during or at the end of a race is never less than 0.8 mm.|
|(f)||The ground clearance of the body at technical inspection and start of the race is 2.0 mm.|
|(g)||The ground clearance of the body during the race is never less than 1.6 mm.|
Additional weighting of the body can only be applied to the vertical surfaces of the plastic reinforcing strips within the boundaries as shown in the picture below.
