All the GT racing in North America for the past 3 years has a common understanding that that belt-drive "Rally-Game" cars aren'e "shaft-drive" GT cars, Some parts of the world do allow them to race together, but not in North American GT style racing.

But as soon as the class gets enough participation to attract the big dog manufacturers, you will see them make cars for the class and have drivers like Swauger, Burch an Paolo to deal with. Not quite as much fun for the noob anymore. Just look at 1/10th TC. Used to be noobs running HPI's all blinged out and having a blast, now it's all about worlds level competition and most of those HPI guys are gone or running Slashes instead.

So what does this mean for 2wd pan cars? Well, 1/12th scale has been around from the start and shows no sign of dying. Why? Cheap, simple, low maintenance racing fun with stable rules that don't allow any more technical complexity to creep in. Ten year old cars are still capable of winning major races. GT has all that except for the prohibitions on further tech. So I see 2wd pan cars as a potentially better option for an easy entry level nitro class. Right now GT may be just as good and appealing for that purpose but that will most likely change eventually.
Yes, I agree about what happened with 1/10th TC and not to mention it killed the 235mm class. I eluded to this in my first post on this thread.

Speedy,
I appreciate what you are saying about the GT class, however look at the topic of this thread. It does'nt say anything about the GT class. This thread was started to discuss The "1/8th scale pan car class" . I sure did not say anything about the GT class. If the GT class is your passion and you have a successful program at your track, thats great, I wish you well. Senna 555 got his say and you got your say. enough is enough with the insults. Now, can we please get back to thread topic? If you would like to stick around and discuss the topic, you are welcome.

Dale

Pan-Car guys....

senna opened his "pie-hole" trashing the GT cars and your thread went south.......

I wish you guys all the best with the new class, once you get it rolling, don't let anyone trash talk what your doing and it will grow well too.

Argh....

Point with monster truck class and truggies was that it ruined it for the basher type racer. Monster truck were no longer competitive and thus ruining the class for the basher...same thing happened in touring car,200mm sedan etc.

Point is car need to be basic..point from the beginning.

Isnt their a thread about gt cars already. I am sure your time would be better spent their or on the who gives a s@%t thread.

Enjoy your gt race seems like you got something going in your area..good luck with that.

I dont think anyone posted a pic of this car...brx..I looked into this car also an was really expensive to import.

Cheers
Jamie Gonzalez

Arghhh... My azz

Now you try and play some magic trick to defending your last brainstorm statement on bashing M trucks and truggy’s are you for real? You always have this so called POINT that defends one of your statements and criticizes yourself all at the same time. So in all this you are saying and I quote "Point is car need to be basic..Point from the beginning" Then what’s with all the BS in ALL YOUR LAST 10 STATEMENTS.


Who started bashing GT's ON THIS THREAD could it be senna, who started bashing buggy’s on this thread Master idiot senna, who bashed truggy’s, monster trucks, and whatever this wanna be non chassis tuning helmet head wearing MFer felt like bashing could it be senna? Why don’t you do us all a favor and you start a who gives a @#$%^&* thread about whatever you don’t like today and leave us alone you arrogant azzhole. I can’t wait to someday meet your arrogant punk azz and see if you still have these massive internet muscles that just make so many new RC peeps want to actually race at your track LMAO. As to you trying to keep face on this thread and put a little picture in here or there plzzzz ... Talk about the topic on thread and no one will mess with you, get off topic and be ready to be called out. Keep it up Master Idiot………

Default Here you Go Dale & Juan...

Here you Go Dale & Juan...

As promissed, here's a few from the shop and a couple of Brand new ones.
Couldn't forget a stack of Elfins, Nissan and the Greenwood Corvette.
In the last picture you'll see a portion of a Formula 1 body as you mentioned
in your post earlier. 1/8 Scale Open Wheel Cars can Launch pretty high when
they brush up against each other...

Take care!

Terry
