On the Tamiya web site it shows 3 different wheelbase configurations (see below) Which is considered "standard" or popular with all the other manufacturers?

FF-03 Pro Specs & Features
1/10 R/C assembly model kit.
Chassis length: 384mm, Overall width: 185mm, Tread: 157mm, Wheelbase: 257, 245, 233mm.
FWD chassis features front-mounted motor and is designed for optimum weight distribution and a low center of gravity.
Body, tires, ESC, motor, R/C unit, battery and charger not included.

Any info provided to me is much appreciated.

Thanks - Dale - Protoform
257 is the standard wheelbase for most bodies used.

Any body have a picture of one of these bodies? Besides the one on the website. Dale, any plans on making a tc style body for the traxxas rally? Like a mini protoform p37 I feel like the traxxas 1/16th with a stiffer suspension would make a good novice tc class that would be affordable. Since a tc car can run about a grand. People could buy a proto form tc body and spec tires for their rally and be racing for under $400.00 just my 2 cents.

Considering how fast the class is growing (Tamiya, TOP, 3Racing, Serpent...with more joining soon) we need more realistic 185-190mm wide FWD bodies.

- Volvo C30 WTCC
- Chevrolet Cruze WTCC
- Seat Leon WTCC
- Ford Focus BTCC (new model)
Even if Tamiya is now making one, Scirocco!!

*Cruze would be way more popular though, I'd imagine.
