Non standard. A few of us tried to forewarn in the Facebook group that the odd size was gonna be a problem. Didn’t work

It will be interesting to see how this turns out. Nobody makes bodies or tires in this new size other than traxxas. No other manufacturer is going to abandon the 1/10 touring car just to follow traxxas. Tracks will need a special class for the 3.0. Protoform/Proline are Horizon now, so they probably won't be in a hurry to support the competition.

Traxxas would have been better off revamping the X01 to compete with the Felony/Infraction/Limitless. Granted, that's another chassis in a weird scale... but that aftermarket has quickly grown. Or rather, they should have gone to 1/8 scale to compete with Xray/Serpent/etc.

It's very likely that Traxxas isn't concerned with attracting racers anyway. They're going to sell the 4-Tec 3.0 Corvette to casual RCers who want one.

Oeps, no edit?

These are the specs of the 3.0Length: 19.4 inches (492mm) Front Track: 8.1 inches (204mm) Rear Track: 8.0 inches (202mm) Total Width (mirrors): 8.9 inches (227mm) Ground Clearance: 0.3 inches (9mm) Weight: 3.92lbs (1.78kg) with body (no battery) Height (ride): 5.1 inches (130mm) Wheelbase: 11.3 inches (288mm) Shock Length: Short (front and rear


200mm width, so no GT spec

At the least, based on the number of speed run 4tecs I've seen, the new car could be ideal. It could even be a weapon at the drag track. But if you drift or race any other class, Traxxas no longer has a car for you.
