Default 4wd pan cars?

Are there any 1/10 4wd pan cars in the market?

The only 4wd pan car i know is Kyosho Spada nitro 1/12.

4wd isn't legal in pan car racing so no one makes one.

A 4wd pan car would be mental though, so much grip.

Would be nice to see someone solve this with a stiff rear axle and a t-bar or link construction based car.
As far as i get was with my brushless kyosho evolva but that is far from a pancar.
but i prefer pancars as they are, its pretty simple like now. but be horrible with the worn of the front tires, like now the ratio is like 3pairs front compared to 1pair in the rear. if it was 4wd i would need a separate job for a tireaccount.
As said Kyosho has their little spada you can turn into electric if you like, i did see a guy with a lipo and mambamax 7700 in his, that was sick but wasnt that good constructed.

There were a few 4wd 1/12th scale pan cars made years ago. Kyosho had one and I can't remember the others off hand. The HPI Micro RS4 was based off that design. Not sure why they never caught on well enough to make a class for them. At any rate they aren't legal now under any current rules set.

Anyone 35 and older will know...

Kyosho Fantom series (probably the most successful design and thats why the current 1/12th scale nitro car is developed by Kyosho)

Hirobo has one (yes, they tried to make cars at 1 time)

ABC Hobbies has several

Delta has couple

AYK has couple...

I think MUGEN has one too.

I don't recall big name like TRC/Trinity has any....but sure they were the big gun in 1/10th scale pan car on 80s.

4WD pan car with 6 cells nicd was so 80s...no one find it interested no more cause the RWD 12th scale getting faster and their tracton is not far worst then 4WD since they were all using foam tires.

Ladder link chains and rheostat speed controls. Those were the good ol' days.

Hirobo was waaayy ahead of it's time with belt drive. :P The 44B off road car was ahead of its time also. It had fully adjustable suspension even with a turn of a screw you could change caster! (at the caster block)

Hmm, may be worth getting some parts made and building one up to try it on carpet.
