Many cars in the past used to have motor behind front axle, even racing ones. Only reason why current full scale TCR use FF layout is, because they are based on mass produced cars. If someone build FWD racing prototype, it'd have MF layout, too. Something like Nismo LM prototype, which was FWD when it had deactivated KERS.

Anyway, we can not change this decision of them by now.
Some drivers of the series already responsed in many forums and under many posts what they think about this.

What i can say after all the action in social media by yesterday, many racing series in Europe do NOT FOLLOW this rule !
There were several racing series who pointed this out yesterday and released the rules for the FWD class in their own series.
"we will not be restricting or limiting chassis layout of the cars at all. As long as the car only drives the front wheels, and the overall dimensions are met, then you're absolutely welcome to join us in the FWD class"
It is a huge pity when inferior design is set to be "standard". The most existing front motor FWD are generally short cutted design. AW made a proper car and it is not accepted - apparently because a lot of people already own the garbage. I was planning to try the FWD class - but now will not. The front motor design does not cut it for me.

Generally most track / race promoters will run a class for cars, no matter the spec. The more cars we get out there the less excuses promoters will have.

But you can find them at many of your favorite "hobby" stores -- not just r/c shops

ETS gave Awesomatix the biggest compliment available in the industry. It's a real piss off at the same time but maybe there will be an "ETS" conversion and AMX will still kick everyone's ass.

I plan to run one, since the ETS is the only series that will be not allowing it, which is unfortunate, the rest of us can enjoy racing with it. :-)

I guess they could always go back to this?

They just might have to if the ETS "rules" become more widespread.

I'm more concerned with the Awesomatix F1 car.

ETS Rulebook update; Sedan class: Suspension must consist of round spring and conventional shocks. No leaf springs or cylinder dampers allowed to maintain the spirit of racing fun and funding from sponsorship's. It's blindingly obvious that this FWD rule has been imposed due to ETS sponsors crying foul because they don't want to see leaderboards that look like this anymore

It already exists with tcs racing, (future) Can Am racing, etc,...
