It's a class that HPI kinda started.
Here's the rules from their website.
The concept of this class is to have a realistic/scale race class that looks like it's full scale GT/Touring Car counterpart.
-HPI Sport/Pro 2/3/4, E10, Sprint, Sprint 2; HB Cyclone chassis.
-HPI realistic bodies only (no Stratus, Mazda 6 race bodies).
-HPI 26mm spoked wheels (no dish wheels)
-HPI #4790 D-Compound X-Pattern Radial Tires
-Kit Lexan wing (cut to stock cut line) or HPI plastic wing set only.
-27 turn motor limit (brushless allowed, 17.5 min. per ROAR rules).
-Chassis option parts allowed.
Most of the race organizers around here have opened it up to pretty much any 4WD electric chassis.
Here's the rules as stated for my local club.
No purpose-made touring car bodies (e.g. Mazda 6) -- realistic bodies only!
Chassis: any 1/10 scale AWD touring car
Motor: 27T brushed or 17.5 brushless
Battery: 6-cell or 7.4V lipo
Body: any 190mm or 200mm realistic body w/kit lexan or any plastic wing (no oversized racing wings)
Wheels: Realistic, spoked 26mm 0mm-10mm offset (no dish wheels)
Tires: HPI X-Pattern
Minimum Weight: 1475g
