Default Fwd tcs

Every so often you will see 2wd budget tcs. Why doesn't anyone set one up to run w/ the wheels in the front of the car. I mean, wouldn't that force the wheels steering the car into the ground? When a car is fwd the wheely affect is actually pushing the rear of car into the ground. I wouldn't think the front would have to steer the car either. I would think a good ball diff in the front & allowing the rear to stear the car would work fine.

Neither work well at all. I have had a front belt snap during a race and TC's have no traction w/o the front wheels pulling the front end around/straight...Ive also had a rear belt snap and the car has alot of push, like a civic, so in my experience, you must have all wheels turning for a TC to track forward properly...IMHO

I have a different opinion. I have 2 different Front wheel drive TC's on my shelf. A highly modified Tamiya FF-01 and a Yokomo YR-F2. They are both competitive in stock class TC racing and would do well in 19T. In full modified the available power would probably overpower the front wheels. I also have a rear drive TC I am currently working on which I am sure will work fine against 4wd tc's. It handles like a pan car and is very quick. It is a direct drive with IRS. Both types must be driven well to be competitive. Don
