A 2WD TC must have 4 wheel independent suspension to be considered a Touring Car, its minimum weight is lower the 4wd though. These cars listed on this thread are PAN CARS, not TC's. Tamiya has the same type of car, AE released a Touring pan car but none of them conform to TC chassis rules


We all know pan cars smoke TC's, totally different chassis and classes not sure why the comparisons?


2wd TC is totally legal but if it where faster im sure we would see xray or the rest make them, the last 2wd tc i saw was from Kyosho,yokomo and tamiya, i distinctly remember them keeping the back of the pack company out our local races

You're correct about the definition of a pan car. Mine is not a pan car, it has irs. I believe it can be classified as a TC. You're also correct about the weight issue-but all TCs are supposed to weigh 54oz.(IIRC,ROAR rules) My car weighs 40oz as shown. Don

I will give you that if there is enough traction and a smooth enough surface. As in ozite or a perfect asphalt track. On a rough parking lot the suspension and grip of the TC has a way of making up the differrence.

Look better at the rear end - no pod, pinion going to spur which turns diff going to each wheel independently via axle and independent rear suspension.

It's more of a Pan car front and chassis married to a TC rear end.

Your car would be considered legal for TC if it was 190mm wide, and met the 2wd TC weight rules, not sure if ROAR did away with this rule or not but back in the HPI PRO and PRO2 days there was a 2wd and 4wd weight rule. You have 4 wheel independent suspension so it would be considered a TC

It is 190mm front and back. I agree at one time there was one weight for 2wd(lighter) and another for 4wd. With 6 cell 3300 saddle pack it weighs 48oz. Don
