Hey, I hope it can make a big comeback since I'll always prefer pancars over TC's but when it comes down to it the cars are little more than larger versions of 1/12th scale cars so it seems a little redundant to me. Seems to be that the best direction for the class would be Lipo (and 6 cell) with a 17.5. That will be plenty fast for most people. I would bet even pro drivers would have a very hard time with 7.4v Lipo and soemthing like a 4.5 brushless.
Mod was fun back then but it more like lipo and 8.5 would be the best.
We race a race last weekend with 3 diff combo all where 235mm cars.
HPI RS with 10.5 6 cell fast time was 7.828
RC10L2.5 with 13.5 Lipo fast times were 7.744
RC10L2 with 10.5 4 cell fast time was 8.012 this was my time i did not get a change to work on my car. To busy tying to find out where my entire “A” main pack pieces where after it blow up in front of my face.
The fastest 1/12th “A” main time was 7.461.
So hope next weekend we can get more testing time.
