It seems to me electric struggles as it is because there are so many classes and rules... seems pointless to me to dilute it further
Unfortunately a new class requires participation from the racers and the race organizers. RCGT and VTA are great places to start. These are at least regionally recognized classes and I think VTA is recognized by ROAR. But there is no reason a local track can't run a Porsche Cup class using Standard TC chassis and spec tires, HPI body, etc.
What I am trying to say is that racers can't wait for someone to change the rules for them, they have to take the initiative and make it happen. I have seen it happen with tires;a track will not have a spec tire but the racers will agree to use the same thing. It can be done.
I really like the realism of the Cup Racer and ABC cars. But they can easily be ruined of someone designs a race type handling body, racers embrace it, and tracks allow it. It will be TC all over again.
