Event Description: Throttle Wars

  • Bot Specification:

    1. The vehicle should be designed so that it fits in an 800mm X 700 mm box at any given point of time in the race. This is excluding the remote controller.
    2. It is essential that the car be designed with an internal combustion engine (IC engine). Motors etc. should not be the main driving sources of the car. However, for steering mechanisms or any other mechanism apart from propulsion, DC motors and servos can be used.
    3. Only one IC engine should be used in the vehicle. Use of any other sources such as chemicals, compressed gas, rockets etc. for propulsion is not allowed. The allowed capacity of IC engine to be used is 4.5 cc or less.
    4. The vehicle has to be necessarily controlled by a wireless remote control system throughout the competition. The vehicle must have two remote controllers of different frequencies or an alternate frequency remote control circuit which can be switched to either frequency before the start of the round. This is done to avoid frequency interference between the two competing vehicles.
    5. Remote control systems from toys or the ones purchased from a market might be used without any fear of penalization.
    6. The vehicle parts can be ready made. But there will be extra points if you make chassis and steering mechanism by yourself (See judging criteria for more detail).
    7. If you are making your own car, then other functional parts like motors and servos, gears, springs, engine, remote control systems, batteries, wheels, braking mechanism are allowed to be used as directly available from the market.
    8. It is essential that the vehicle has an onboard power supply to provide electricity to any mechanism requiring electric power.
    9. Electric voltage not more than 12V should be used in the machine wherever required.
    10. Participants are advised to use a proper cooling mechanism to prevent overheating of the engine.
    11. Verify with the organizers if you have the slightest doubt whether a component can be used or not. Please do not hesitate. Designs not complying with the vehicle specifications will be disqualified.
