Default 200mm 1/10 Outlaw Class

A couple quick questions:

Is there anywhere where rules/specs are listed??

I am trying to decide whether to run front/rear diffs or A front Oneway and a solid rear (like the 1/8 scale cars use) - any suggestions????

Which is the better car for this class - G4S -serpent 720 - mugen MTX-4 - kyosho vonerrr wc????

thanks

Depending on your driving style and the track you drive at, you have 3 choices:

1- front and rear diffs.

2- 1way front/ rear diff

3- solid diff front/ rear diff

All depends on the track. If its fast and flowing then one way but not with a solid rear. 60K diff oil is good or if its too twitchy then go to 30K.

A solid front will work well with a lola as well but on smaller tracks where you need to brake.

None of this is in the rules though as you can run what you want.

I run a one-way with a solid rear on my Mtx-4. I use 3.5 rear toe and it only gets a little loose if I exit the corner really really hard other then that it its on rails.

I ran under roar rules a few years back and its touring rules with lola body and 5 or 7 ports. Everything else is the same.

The 200mm does run well but with the 200mm width rule the car can get twitchy on big tracks.

I ran against the 235 class and won an A-main but I had to punish the car to get it to run 60 minutes fast and stay fast.

I wish the class would come back.........

Good luck and have fun.

The G4S is the car -- best price, super competitive - parts availability is excellent and alot of trick parts and much more coming!

Maybe in your area but not in mine. In my neck of the woods, the Mugen and Kyosho are the cars. Also, don't see where this statement has anything to do with the topic, "200mm Outlaw Class".

Back to the subject, since the US racing organization killed off the 235mm class, it would be nice to have an alternative class to the 200mm touring and 1/8th scale classes. Since there are just as many 5-port .12 engines as 3-port .12 engines, it is a shame that you can only run 5-ports at the club level because they are not race legal at sanctioned races. Also, most club tracks are not big enough to utilize the top-end of most 5-ports. Now that Frewer and Protoform have Lola bodies out for 200mm (and a couple of other companies as well), I say lets push for at a bigger level than at local clubs.

Agree!!

I would love to race outlaw in the UK but the support has died off since the BRCA banned 5 ports. I dont see many coming back to it unless the touring class gets too big. We might get a mini series at a club over the summer but thats it

Use a diff and it wont spin out under power! If you check the lap times here in the UK the 200mm car beats the 235 cars everytime!
