There is a discussion for WGT but more often than not somebody comes in and talks about Pro10 thinking that WGT and Pro10 are one and the same. SOOOOOO....liljohn decided to create a thread JUST for talk about the 235mm cars and the ideal formula for them so as to divert it from the WGT discussion so that there is less confusion

Yup in the oval section. Someone who is driving WGT made this thread. No idea why ( probably so we don't clutter the WGT thread?) but we sprang on it like bees on honey.

By the way... it doesn't stop me from vissiting the WGT thread if something interesting comes up, if that was the whole pupose of this thread.

edit: sorry was lagging behind with the messaging

This is an electric road course car, 10th scale and fits this section perfectly.

This is not WGT.

What they meant is that there already is such a thread:

1/10th pan car

(984 pages of it)

This is not WGT.
WGT isn't an electric road course car, 10th scale?

WGT is a 200mm pancar with 4 cells or 1s 13.5t or higher motor with a GT body on. I will drive a 200mm pancar indoor with a 2s lipo and 13.5t and a GT body. As the rules are stated it wouldn't be WGT.

But WORLD GT is only being driven in the USA and maybe UK now, not sure. They should not have called it WORLD GT but USGT or something and then there wouldn't be any discussion anymore. If you call something WORLD GT, people from other countries who are driving on bigger tracks and have a very different feel of what is fast and what is slow will have there say on the matter because the rules are completly useless here. The current WGT rules are being setup for very tiny indoor carper tracks in the US.

I have driven with 2s and a brushed 23t indoors before and it has good speed and a nice learning curve. I don't want to go slower so i can go full throttle everywhere and going slow on the straight part. It is plain boring.

Discussions and misunderstanding will always be there with the WGT name as it stands now.

I agree. And thanks for the view from the outside looking in. World GT does need a different name. The spec is for indoor carpet tracks indeed. The gents in the UK came up with the name, the IIC, other major races and ROAR are picking up the "rules" here in the States.

Understood. Just being class specific. 1/10 pan is almost as bad as saying WGT these days. We have 3.5 2S/6cell/5cell in Europe and Asia and parts of the US which run on 1/8 scale road courses down to 13.5 1S which is indoor carpet and a new idea in the UK and US that are all covered by 1/10 pan. As Electric Onroad gets more viewers than the Oval and Larger Scale, there should been a thread here just for these beauties.

There should be a thread for: GT 10: 200mm 13.5 1S Pan Car Discussion. I'll let someone else open that can of worms. Maybe...

I agree. Just name it how it is and there is no discussion possible. GT10 200mm 13.5t 1s and everyone knows what it is about.

GT 200mm 13.5t 2s and it is clear. Pro10 235mm also self explanatory.

The thing that is commen with all of these different classes is that we want to have fun racing a pancar .
