The cars are simple like a solid front and rear end, the front is mounted as a 1/12th pancar T-bar, a normal clutch and no 2 or 3-speed gearbox.

Several reasons were given for driving this class and most of the people say it is simple, strong and cheap.
Roelof,

Yes I did read about this class on REDRC. I am old enough to have run the old Associated and Delta pan cars of the 70's & early 80's. We ran an 1/8
scale pan class here in the Texas SWS series up until about 1992 when we droped the class and ran 2wd Suspension cars such as the BMT,Serpent and Delta P2 cars. Sadly, that class was droped along with 235mm 10th scale in favor of the present 200mm sedan class.

I found the French DXF and Motonica P8C Classic cars on REDRC.
