sweet, glad to see they are joining in. Is it me, or does that car look longer than other pro10s?

That looks good!

And now that it is "official" it should really help build upon what the other companies have started.

I think it looks longer because of the battery placement. With some of the other cars having the battery run down the center of the chassis or like the BMI DB10R where the battery pack and esc/rx placement is flopped with the pack where the esc/rx and esc/rx where the pack is on the RC10R5.

It is the narrowness and weird shape that makes it look distorted.

LiPo doesn't work in this class, it's all to do with weight. Check out the BMI DB10R thread, or the BMI site, for a car that does optimise LiPo.

The DB10R can be fitted with 7.4v packs and an additional weight - all inside the same space as a 4-cell pack - that makes the car handle just as well, but gives you LiPo-addicts the chance to stay on the pace.

Make sure you fit a slower motor through, as with 7.4v the car will go straight to the scene of the accident - pit to trash in one lap!!

Good to see lots of people, and manufacturers joining in with this class.

So this is to be a 4cell class? IT pretty sure it is, i really like what i see on the rules for this class:

http://www.intchamps.com/WGT_2008_Rules.pdf

Its just unfortunate for lipo that they are 3.7volt cells.... this class needs to happen its a great new entry level cost effective way to go racing. i just dread going back to nihm to participate

2 cell lipo is only 20-30g off a 4 cell pack, it certainly does work, my genx10 doesn't handle much different on lipo vs 4 cell, but the voltage makes all the difference. The idea is cheaper packs and slower cars, with the counter argument that you get alot more good use out of lipo. I'd love the class to be lipo with a slow motor, but it seems like most cars are tailored for 4 cell, and saddle lipos are just starting to show up, I'm not sure they all fit in the same space as a 4 cell pack.

Pan cars rely mostly on there weight for handling. With the added voltage of lipo and the loss of weight, Pan cars do not handle well with lipo and no added weight. It does not matter the brand of car. They all need weight added to make them handle ok with lipos. 4 cell packs are not as durable or long lasting as lipos but the cars do handle better when using them. The lower voltage and faster motor is more drivable with a more smooth power delivery than a higher voltage with slower motor. The big picture is, they will be comparable in speed but drivability of the 4 cell setup is more user friendly.

Saddle pack lipo is the ideal setup for pan car as far as handling goes but stick packs will be more widely accepted. This will be true until people start looking at the importance of handling of the car as opposed to using the existing packs they have now. Stick pack cars have never worked as well as saddle packs. Now when you weight the saddle pack to the 4 cell weight, handling drastically improves. You can drive the car without adding weight but it will not handle even close to how a weighted car will handle. This is not bashing any of the cars. This is just how it is so take it as you will.

Sorry but any electric form of racing that doesnt favor lipo will not thrive, at least in the club level. 1/10 pan can come back strong but lipo-brushless will have to be the power for it.
Nice looking car tho.

I am pretty sure a company will come up with something if the market requires it

Very nice car AE
