this is incredible!

Congratulations! I must say, I'm always impressed with the europeans who keep the RC hobby very alive as a hobby.
I feel that the current state of the RC hobby has just become one of "get the maddest equipment possible and rush to the race track to beat the crap out of your mates".

I've always like the 2wd 1/8th buggies raced in france and the 1/8th pan cars. I also really enjoy watching sidecar racing of all kinds (isle of man, euro sidecar and the sidecar scramblers... mad!)

Thanks for sharing this. Would a moving weight in the car help make it handle better?

Hi, not, a moving weight will not help, on the contrary it would unbalance the chassis.
Some have tried a gryo with good results but that's not the "philosophy" of this category.
There the reaction of the 1/8 sidecar is like a true scale 1, it pulls on one side to accelerate and the other to deceleration, that's what makes the charm of this category "prototype"

Suspension rear right on rocker, suspension in the front fender as on a track 1/12.
