I think most 4wd sedan car can be coverted with sucess.
I tried one of my old Kyosho Tf5 sports as RWD. Tried it on grey carpet. Without any setup changes it ran pretty good .it ran slower with times . i had to slow down more on corner entry and slower throttle on exit.
I would like to try it sometimes on a raceday (that doesn't count ) but as a new class . that would be a hard sell . We have too many onroad classes to begin with.

21.5 has been a good start. I'm still trying gearing with mine. Did test runs today on track layout today. I'll have video up soon as I can.

It's not too hard to drive the Tamiya M-06 chassis.
You can Tune-Out most of the Oversteer with Suspension Set-Up. . .(just don't hit the brakes too hard)

I always liked the idea of a rwd touring car. I used to have great fun with my ts2e until parts for it became impossible to find them,now I just use it for display.

They are a set of well used Sweep tires. Depends on where I run it. It's run very good on the prepared surface. It's in a way similar to driving my F1.

Concrete has been my best surface to run on. I know carpet was its intended use. And maybe I'll get a chance to drive on it over winter. Overall it's run good on most surfaces I've tried.
