Well, it would teach newcomers to race. Starting out with a pan car is a much better idea then a 4wd car. They teach things such as throtle control that tc doesn't teach.

C'mon man which d drive touring car has independent sus. and - shocks?

I really think d drive touring cars are a good idea. Cheap to buy, Simple to maintain, cheap to run. And even if U wanna hop it up, there are not too much stuff for U to buy too...

actually not... It will kick the crap out of a TC with IRS and shocks on all 4 corners... We've overengineered the latest generation of on road cars and a pan car will still outrun them.

That's a fact. The Tamiya F103GT is d-drive and is already busting laptimes of the 4wd touring cars at tracks everywhere. For about 1/2 the price or less.

why not just run a pan car body on these cars and call it what it is, 1/10th scale pan car.

IT is an Academy, it will have a wobbly chassis and some nasty metals....

On a 2wd car it is better to have a solid axle(+ a ball diff of course) instead of independent suspension because of weight transfer. Your inside wheel will always get too light on a 2wd independent suspension car and it is really easy to spin cause of this.

I already do it bot you need a narrow chassis car like a RC10L3T or a CRC Pantoura.

Here's a rear shot of my L3T with a Stratus body on it. Gotta love the wide tires on the back....

i would love to have one of those 10l3t's but they seem to have faded into oblivion too fast... seemed like a great class idea... fast, cheap, durable, parts readily available.......

Specifications
■ WHEEL BASE : 257mm
■ WIDTH : F-185mm/R-188mm■ TREAD : F-161mm/R-164mm
■ TOE-IN : F-ADJUSTABLE/R-0ㅤCASTER : F-ADJUSTABLE/R-0
■ WEIGHT : 1,300g(RUNNING WEIGHT)


The NEW Academy kits are of high quality .
This SP3 XT Touring Car isnt released yet.
It is designed with the same dimensions as the STR4 to fit all 1/10 Touring Car body shells.
With a running weight of 1300g i think it will be an insane fun little racer.

I think that the left rear might have a problem with falling off.

It looks a bit over done to me. What with the raised up portions of the Chassis? All you need is flat sheet a graphite. As someone already said, AE 10L3 is perfect.
