This may not apply to this thread, but as a general FYI, the Suzuki SX4 WRC was all wheel drive. Only the Swift S1600 was FWD.

Can't wait to get an FF03 of my own. Waiting to see if they release some of the old school bodies as kits. Mainly the Volvo 850 BTCC.

I have been wanting this car for some time now. I have made up my mind, Im buying one real soon. Can't wait to get it.......1 question, do you guys know of a carbon fiber chassis for this car? I think that would be cool.

I believe they re-released the volvo 850 body?

The Volvo 850, Vectra (known as Cavalier in Britain), Audi A4 and Mondeo was the only BTCC shells Tamiya made.
The Accord was the US/Asian design and not the British/Europe design.
The Toyota Levin was similar to the British raced Corolla but only had 2 doors and not 4.
Mazda MX6, Alfa Romeo 155, Renault Laguna, Peugeot 405 shells were never made by Tamiya (406 was never used in Britain).

Later versions of the Mondeo and Astra were made by HPI.

Frewer was the only company to ever make the Renault Laguna.

BTCC 406...



And I don't recall Corolla's in the BTCC but I do remember Carina E's. Oh and I think you mean the Xedos 6 rather than the MX6 for Mazda.

Great era for the BTCC. It's not even a shadow of that now.

Great picture of that BTCC Peugeot 406, it was a nice looking car. They never got it working that well in the BTCC though. But in the German supertouring series STW it was dominating.

5t brushless, seriously?

I give that diff about a 6 second life span.

Why so much motor?
If it's the only thing available I'd turn the epa on that radio down to about 50% and the expo down to 80.

It's gonna be insanely fast, when it misses a turn it may self destruct.

No reason it wouldn't fit as far as size goes, I would think.
It is a 540 can right (same size as silver can etc.)?


Were all the BTCC cars mentioned above FWD?

The A4 ran 4wd. We always had some rear-wheel drive BMWs in the field too.

Then 4wd got banned and it runned as a FF i believe.

Its the same lack of diversity that kills WRC now.

RWD was always allowed to run, and still does.
Think BMW and Lexus IS200 were the only RWD models ?

(wait to be corrected)
