I think that M04 would be more interesting platform. It can be easily stretched to standart wheelbase and widened with TL01 suspension.

The Yokomo arrived much quicker then ever expected. Have to finish my F1 car first. That should be done this week. Then I can start on this.

Quick look video. I'll start a thread once I get started on building it.

I've long wanted a RWD rubber car to teach myself some throttle control and I could never get my F103GT to be more than "almost sort of driveable". So I tried RWD TC yesterday on a whim and it's definitely doable. It is tricky to drive, but not so tricky that you couldn't get into a rhythm if you really focused. I was driving on medium grip asphalt without sauce (additives are banned at my track). The car needs much more setup work but it works not too bad as it is. Weight bias is 58.7/41.3.

That would make for a true USGT class with 2wd bodies like mustangs, corvettes, mclaren etc, instead of the current USGT 4wd tc class , that is nothing more than TC 21.5t with GT bodies.... 2wd independent suspension USGT is way more original !!!

I have often thought that a VTA like class would be fun in RWD . It could be a little cheaper to run then the 4wd TC cars

You can test drive mine next race. Here's from last time before and after gear change.

Love America... That's absolutely not the cars I'm thinking of when we talk about RWD cars, more of M3, Toyota Supra or P1...

We used to race a RWD rubber tire car on asphalt in the early to mid 90s . It was a RC10 DS car based on a RC10 buggy . It had shortened arms and shock towers .It was slightly bigger then a 1 1/10 scale cars that are made now. They were fun , they were not the Ultra tunable TC car that we have now .

I converted my old FK05 many many moons ago to a RWD car and tore out the front driveshafts and diffs++ I drove on carpet and had a stiff carpet bottom plate. I did not go real fast ofc. but you had no problem laying down the power with it. I converted the battery to being mounted transverse and added a bracket with weights on it to get the weight further out to equal the motor. It was good fun and once the tires where right and not fucked up by the Damn 1/12 foam tire additives it was decently quick. I ran it soft on the suspension and soft on the diff but not too soft as that would aid in spinning the car on entry. If i did it right (for me) i could have slip on the inner wheel without spinning out.

Tips:
Get the weight far back.
Run the biggest wing you can. I have extra tall and long wing mounts that i 3D print for my other cars. They are about 25mm tall and goes 10mm further back.
