We need to do some more testing before we start talking about Lipo motors.

I doubt anyone has weighed thier cars yet but but we will shortly.
this looks like it could be a ton of fun and cheaper then TC I have to get one

One class is good and the motors listed will be good.

Like Trans Am it will depend on the track. At carpet track like where I race 4cell 17.5BL/27T brushes is perfect. But outdoors on a big track this might be painfully slow :P

Cool too see more companies getting onboard with these cars.

Indeed. I got your PM Nexus and replied. I could see this as a good avenue for a GT style rule set. I mean we have plenty of GT style bodies on the market from HPI and a few others.

i run my wide doug powell max10 pretty regularly with a bonded 5.5 and lipo at village.. it's about as much fun as you can have with clothes on and i can still only use about half throttle... sounds like a jet plane on the straight away... running white rears i get weeks of use out of them...

We'll we have a group around here racing 1/10 pans cars for the past few years. Simple and fast. We have run 6 cell with 10.5 or 19 turn motors and we usually are the fastest cars. But to get this started, I think 4 cell and 10.5 is good. I've been running some oval and that combination seems to work pretty well.

I running outside this past summer, that battery / motor combination, I was clocked at 46 mph with a speed gun. It was faster than all gas or electric touring car. But faily easy to drive.

I'm all for this class and would look forward to 200mm GT cars.

Wow!

Not this is cool! Hopefully with CRC stepping up to the plate others will follow. That would be awesome to have this class take off again! I will be placing my order soon!

I emailed Associated about possibly re-releasing the L3T so we will see what happens with that one

You should be able to get purple, double pinks and pinks for $15.00 a pair.

Look further back in this thread. There are 7 manufacturers working together to promote this class and we all have prototypes in testing now.

Adrian,

Why are you still designing them with 1/12 scale front ends? Cant they be made so that you have front suspension like 1/10 TC's to have better front travel and help prevent blowovers? It doesnt have to be like today's TC front arms, C-hubs, etc...but at least shocks and a shock tower? Is this possible and would it work better than the 1/12 front ends or the 1/12 type front ends are superior than the TC style front ends?

Default 200mm Body

I think if we run this class, it must be with GT/ GTP style bodies. Here are some really nice bodies in 200mm from RCMART. I'm sure Proline-Protoform can start working on some bodies for us in this side of the globe:

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=19880

And here is my personal favorite: Toyota GT1- 190mm

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=20486

I'm sure someone can make bodies based on these models...or like the Serpent 200mm GTP body:

Why mess with a formula that isn't broken? Why complicate a class that isn't complicated? Often times that simplest design becomes the most elegant and superior in functionality.

How do you know it is if its not been tested? I'd run the AE style front end but instead of using those little springs, actualy make it so that you can use TC shocks up front with a shock tower of some sort. It will make better up and down travel, and have smoother shock operation/movement, and should improve handling, and it'll be very easy to adjust and set up, and will probably look better, while we're at it.

Progress...refinement...improvement...its simple enough to come up with and would be nice to compare and see which would work better.
