I think this would be a great idea, especially if set up to allow people to dust off their old pan cars.

My primary issue with the current VTA regime is that with the way they have it set up now it's nothing more than another touring car series - and isn't there enough of them already - but with severe restrictions on battery, motor, and tire/wheel choice (especially so that a bunch of the guys are having trouble getting tires because they only allow one brand, they control the market and availability). Sure some guys contine to rant on about how their old this or that TC is competitive with the field; but what field? One at a club race? I'm quite sure that when things shake out long enough only current, or up-to-date, high-end TC will control the top of the field. And from what I saw from the "big race" all the fast cars were new models.

If you're going to make it vintage - make it vintage (old style bodies AND old cars). Othewise don't close your mind to a little creativity that can do nothing but get more people involved in RC racing - and maybe do so on a budget.

And then the VTA originator has the nerve to come into this thread and suggest that by starting this idea up that it's going to rob from his fields.
And I wonder, just who's doing the field robbing - someone trying to start a TA-PC class (something that's intended to build upon a currently non-existent class of car) or someone that's truely robbing from the current TC classes and fields? And then, on top of that, people had been doing all sorts of classes all over the country using old-school TA bodies and old pan cars for years - it's not like he invented the idea - but he acts as if his way is the only way. Pu-lease.

So anyway, what better way to give a leg-up for all the companies now trying to start up 1/10th pan car racing than throwing support behind them - and at the same time give guys a chance to resurrect any old cars hid away in the closet collecting dust - than getting some easy to work on, cheap to fix, cool-looking cars on the track and actually do something to help build on-road racing in this country instead of finding ways to stiffle it.

my 2-cents worth anyway

Isn't this really a thread about why the only bodies one can get for a 1/12th scale are Speed 8's and whatever the other two are . . ? I want a 1/12th scale 200 Audi TA body . . . but then I'd have to design an awd platform with a mechanical center diff . . .

Interesting responses.......it appears more people are interested in running pancars too than had been previously anticipted.

seems pretty evenly split down the middle as of this moment - at least until a bunch of the VTA boys chime in to skew the results

1. Do you want a Trans Am pancar series?
