Oh yes I curious what bodies are we going to try and use?Also a 13.5 with Lipos- on our State series???I've still got my narrow HPI(Mercedes) bodied Normal Bolink car I designed ready to go.As for wide bodies I've still got some new Bolink wide GTP bodies available (Nissan GTP and the old TOJ).I'm sure the people with all the old Bodlink molds could make more.

for 200mm you could run McAllister "ravens" sort of a hybrid lmp/gtp/coupe... unless you just wanted to run nitro sedan bodies..

It uses a normal AE front end, and commonly available IRS oval axles and hubs.

Right now its just a CAD file. Let me know if you have some interest in this and I will pass it on to Jason.
Adrian...get to work on those cars quick...and make them metric so Eu fans can buy them up, too. It'll be a hit...we'd love to race them down here in South Florida, too...but, need the support of a good company.

Bodies are all up to you guys. We just figured make it 200mm so you could fit a huge array of currently, commonly available bodies.

Check some of these out (200mm HPI bodies): http://www.hpiracing.com/bodies/body-tcw.php

Here is a question what type of battery configuration would you guys perfer 4cell or Lipo? What are the advantages and disadvantages? Would Lipo be to much for indoor carpet?

Franky...this is something you will defenitely love. They are simple, but man are they fun to drive. They will outperform TC's in any class, nitro or electric, and the cost of running them is much less.

Well...since some are thinking 4 cell 27T is too fast for some smaller carpet tracks what do you suggest....540 can motors?

7.4v Lipo with a 27T or 13.5BL will be faster than Sedan Mod lap time wise...its was the last time I ran it a few years ago.

I think running 4 cell might be the way to go. You can run normal motors like 13.5, 10.5 and 5.5 BL to get normal ranges of speed from novice to expert level drivers.

i'd be curious to see what 6 cells and those new 17.5 or 18.5 motors would be like.. just out of curiosity.. but 4 cell 10.5 or faster could be a lot of fun.. and cheap!

There is a side benifit to 4 cells...

If you have a 1/12th car all you need to convert to 1/10th is a new rear axle setup, new front lower chassis and 1/10th tires.
