1S and 2S are 2 different animals and 2S just hasnt been in high demand.
Its not that i am against running 2S, i just havent had many people ask about the 235mm cars as the 200mm WGT cars have been ruling the market for 1/10th pan cars.
Then it really seems 1S and 2S racing differs regarding cars not only setup.
But nobody runs 1S here or even is interested in so we have to go for a different direction.
Looking at the cars of other drivers nobody else runs a narrow car like me any more. Just as an example, there is one of the best drivers here running a CRC. This car has 3 options for front wide and this guy had run the medium wide until now what is still wider than my DB10RR. This driver always had been the one to beat until now. At the last race he reached the limit of his car and was not able following the 2 fastest Corallys for most of the race whatever he tried. At the last leg of the triple A-Mains he went with the widest front option and had the same laptimes as the Corallys then. End of story.
You have to separate 2S racing from 235mm class. I understand there isnīt very much demand on 235mm cars these days, at least for USA. The guys here running 235mm cars do this since years and have a lot of experience in car setup and construction. This means some of them are even making their own cars what work much better than the older cars as AE RC10L2, Trinity or similar.
But for 200mm 2S there is some more demand. But people are not interested making there own parts for the 2S lipo to fit. So they are buying cars like Serpent or Corally.
