Actually...1/8th on-road cars were still commonly referred to as a pan car. Partly because they started out as a pan car with the RC300 and partly because they still run a flat chassis instead of a tub even though they are a full suspension car and not a traditional pan car. The name just stuck...though the same did not happen with TCs that have flat chassis because they started out with molded plastic chassis.

hoho
The name just stuck in the US, not in Europe
A pancar is a pancar, an 1/8th track car is a 1/8th track car...
End of discussion.

You dont.
I put it this way instead:
Pan car is a kind of construction, you have a 2 piece chassis connected by a t-bar or a couple of links, the motor and axle is fitted in the rear end. and the rest is fitted in the bigger piece (main chassis). The rear axle is solid (stiff) like a ford mustang This construction is used on 1/12 electric track cars (some will say: actually kyosho maked one nitro pancar, kyosho spada bla bla) and for 1/10th electric onroad pan cars (the same construction as 1/12 pans but two numbers bigger).
When the launch of rc cars on the 70īs or so the most cars where pancars, its a simple construction that has evolved thru the years. but for 1/8th scale they have been redesigned with individual dampening on each axle.

So your list can be modified a bit:

1/8 track (no pan cars anymore)
1/10th track, touring cars and pan cars like mine on the pic.
1/12th track, pan car design.

For a loong loong time ago a brand named Team Associated (the cars some yell about higher up on this page) maked 1/8th track cars with a pan car layout, mostly of the the old onroad cars looked like that and the evolution was just at itīs start and i wonder why A big company as Asssociated didnt manage to follow the rest of the world and stopped produce 1/8th track cars (actually the rest of the world is many tmes bigger than the lower 48 states)...
Sorry for my irony but i think you get my point.

Here is a pic of my 8th and 10th scale pan cars.....I used the 8th scale to cook my dinner last night. Ok, I am a liar.....my mommy used it to cook my dinner.



Kidding aside, I understand what your saying tjompa. Tired Racer is a friend of mine and I think he was defending my stupidity, I hope.

I love it, another american with a sense of humor. That Euro guy didn't understand my previous post was a joke poking fun at their naming convention "1/8th track car".

Hey looks like someone had hamburger helper!

I believe I can add fuel to this fire. On the left is a 1/8 PAN car. The middle is a 1/8 full IS car. On the right a 200mm 1/10 pan car. Don
