Agreeded!

Allow only 3 Port engines
Turbo Plugs (these do not improve performance anyway), they just work alot better then the current 'standard' plugs
Touring Car bodies only!
Foams or rubber.

I think you will see once the final rules come out, manufaturers will manufacturer and design parts/cars/engines around them.

I actually use and like foam tires, and lola bodies. However I do not think that these things are good for touring cars as a class in "sanctioned" events. Or at least add another touring class to allow them. I enjoy the spectical of recognisable car bodies being run, and I would actually like to see rubber tires only as this in my opinion increases the "realism" of the touring class.

However an "outlaw" class to accomodate the new solid diffs, wide tires and lola bodies would also be cool.

A floating rear body mount will articulate all the down force thru the rear hubs almost directly to the wheels and thus freeing up the suspensions. More importantly, you can go softer in the springs and dampening because the shocks will no longer have to help do the job of keeping the cars from bottoming out. (from the down force) And a softer setup = greater traction. Those of us who aren't fortunate enough to get the RR are modifying and in some cases ghetto rigging our own floating rear. Mine came straight off an MRX 3. Trust me ... it makes a huge difference.
The loading from the floating mount on the RR goes to the inner ballend of the rear turnbuckle and not directly to the hubs..... I was a little disappointed with this half way house! The end result is that it take about twice the downforce to compress the suspension.... not quite the same as NO suspension compression as with 1/10, 1/8 on-road!

Well I agree with those of you on that really big island down under but don't you think 2 differnt class's for TC's would be cool I mean 10th scale On Road is neat but the TC market has changed and grown soo much in the last couple of years its crazy
I personally like both rubber and Foam tyres but foams are Way more consistant than rubber, I have spent alot of $$ just trying differnt rubber and inserts just to see what works with my set up,wich intells alot of tyres sitting in a box doing nothing

As for the engines did you ever think it would be possible to get over 1hp out of a .12 wait till some one figures how to get 2 and with reliability thats gonna be scary

AMG.

If IFMAR doesn't allow it, then it must be good

DTM.

You are entirely correct. Saw an rr at the track today and confirmed what you have described. WEEAAK. Anyhow, most of us made ours to attach directly to the hubs.

the LHS here mentioned that there will be new version of VoneRR which will include rear solid axle. But needed to be confirmed.
