I know the minimum weight always changes but what is the current minimum weight required or racing for 1/10 4wd touring cars?

1350g should be the min weight from when last I read up on it.

Depends on the class you're running and what ruleset you're running to. 1320g is fairly typical.

unfortunately this is inaccurate. ROAR canít update their own rules for squat. Min weight has been 1350g in the US for at least two-ish years now. Rule book still shows 1380.

1350g is correct for minimum weight. You will find the same up in Canada who race the series called the western Canadian indoor championship series also known as WCICS. The series follows roar rules as a baseline and has been in place for about 2 seasons.

I know there has been talk about reducing the weight to 1320 g , but nothing has changed yet for me as its 1350g at my club and wcics.

Thank you for clearing that up. ROAR put out notice of the weight reduction from 1380 to 1350, I was not aware the rule book did not get updated.

If you're running FWD in USGT, there's no minimum weight.
