Tether Race Car Association of Australia
Class V Tether cars are the elite. They are the
biggest and fastest of all our classes. As you can see from the
above pictures they are as streamlined as we can get. The cars
weigh up to a maximum of 3.130 kilograms and are roughly 76
centimeters in length. All components are mounted in the cast
alloy chassis and enclosed by a fibreglass or carbon body.
The cars are powered by a 10cc 2 stroke engine with a tuned pipe. The power
is transferred through the driveline to the rear axle and finally
to the ground with solid rubber tyres. These cars have sprung
front and rear axles to ensure the wheels spend most of their time
on the ground. You can also see at the rear is a wheelie bar so
they don't stand the nose up.
