ever since my GoldTub RC10 back in the day (1990-something) with FoamTires mounted have I been waiting on such a thing... looks nice, with lots of potential..

lets hope the other manufacturers bring theirs to the table...

Very interested to see how it performs in real-world conditions...

if an OffRoad buggy can zip around carpet as fast as they do, these should be much more appropriate fun...

the people just have to want it...

I WANT!!

Thanks for sharing.

www_hobbyshop_ch says:

The rear wheel drive chassis provides a superior handling experience encompassing greater smooth acceleration than traditional 4WD chassis due to less resistance than a 4wd chassis.

I wonder in which way this car brings a "superior handling experience". Hopefully it's not just the challenge that is superior .

Could be interesting. Cost would be less then AWD. If it can run pavement I'll try one.

I had never seen a 21.5 onroad touring car before...

... I don't want to ever see one again!!!

Is the driver ever lifting off?!?

USGT is pretty fun class which runs 21.5 motors as of late..

I'm guessing since Yokomo allowed 'guests' some wheel time in that video, they opted to tone down the power quite a bit intentionally.

"Real" (full size) race cars are mostly 2wd + 4 wheel independent suspension:
- F1
- Indy
- LeMans
- sports car
- NASCAR
- etc.

Why the mismatch? Shouldn't there be more RC cars that are laid out similar to full size race cars?

I stumbled upon the Tamiya F103GT Nissan Launch car and thought it was pretty cool as far as body style. But, I just can't get excited about a 1/10 scale version of an exotic sports car where the 1/10 scale version is low tech solid axle, etc.

Shouldn't there be a RWD touring car chassis? Wouldn't that be cool for USVTA? Power slide around the corners in your '71 Cuda?

If I wanted to build one - other than not being able to race it in any recognized class - would it work? Could I just buy a touring car and take out the front wheel drive train?

Thoughts?
I've been hoping that with the resurgence of the original RC10 buggy, Associated would bring back the RC10 Duel Sport or at least a conversion kit.
