Crazy idea: change USGT rules to specify 2wd instead of FF.
It's not listed that I can find. But I'll try to find out. I'm going to be trying a 21,5 system in it. If week goes right should be running Saturday.

Getting closer. Motor/esc are set in place. Had to order longer sensor wire. I should have to servo. At least one to get started. Still aiming for Saturday to have it running

I'm curious to know the F/R weight bias on this one. My guesstimate would be 40/60 but if anyone has a more accurate figure, please share. I'm tempted to try 2wd TC with an old car of mine and I'm looking for setup cues. I've taken a look at the manual (in Japanese) and what I got so far is :

4 identical tires,
pink springs front/black rears with the shocks stood up at the back,
350/400 oil (I'm guessing the 350 is for the front) with 3 hole pistons.

What about caster/front kickup and roll centers though? I also wonder if the pickup points on the A-arms are similar to a regular TC but looking at the pictures they don't seem too different.

Thanks for the help!

Not sure of weight balance but I'll try to find out. I'll get the kickup after work. Another asked me on different forum. I've just got to find that post.

Photobucket new pay policies have wiped up all my photos. But video are still her.

So far, now that I'm getting gearing better, I'm very impressed with how it drives. Other then under braking I can almost forget it's RWD. Though I did find a parking lot surface that it struggled on. I think a tire change could fix or at least improve that.

I've tried before running a standard TC with front axles out. Not even in same ballpark for how this drives.

Thanks for checking Billy. I'm not sure what measurement you're referring to? My question was more regarding the front A-arms inner inge pins. Are they parallel to the chassis or is the front of the hinge pin higher than the back?

Wooah, I know that hobby shop/track.

I should get off my butt and visit there some weekend. I'm in melrose park...

I really like the idea of RWD touring cars.

Those were the markings on the hinge pin mounts.

I'm not sure. I'll have to take another look. All my photos are now gone thanks to photobucket change policy. Might be in my early video here
