Default Vintage tc foam class

Just putting this out there, a few of us have been talking about foam tire 27 turn or 19 turn brushed tc class with the new gravity foam tire. Chassis kits would have to be at 10 years old or older . Lipo 6000 packs or less. Post thoughts here??

What brands still support 10+ year old cars? What would be the point of this class? Would it be just for fun, or another Tamiya mini class?

Not a Tamiya Mini class. A bunch of us have old tcís and were thinking of a fun way to run them. Nimh cells might be hard to find and old cells will be pooched by now!!

Not any other class. No rcar no scale spec. I should have maybe just posted this in the Calgary thread. A few of us were just talking about straight up old school foam tire racing with the new gravity tire. Like a retro tc foam class. Thatís it

Dwayne must have a bunch of Mad Scientist motors he needs to get rid of!
In all seriousness though, cool idea if you've got the gear for it. Someone just needs to get an old RDX together with a Novak GTX and a CO27 or a 19t Money Motor. That thing was amazing on foams if you could keep the suspension arms on it.

Even with the new gravity tires that are supposed to last 800 million runs? (Sarcasm, incase anyone canít tell)

Exactly like that. Are those mostly C2 19t motors? I only see one stock motor.
