Yeah I saw that. Pretty cool.

As I said once before I'm usually the last guy to jump on the "NEW CLASS" bandwagon (or bring back an old class) but these things really interest me.

Hello from France,

it's a 1/8 scale that we call "classic car".

In US, you call it maybee Pan Car.

No suspension in the rear, adjustable chassis stifness, adjustable oscillation in the front, toe in and camber adjustable both rear and front.

It's an awesome categorie because it's so reliable.

You buy the chassis, you buy an engine, not a big one (RB S7C, JP Basic Line, OS VzR...) and you play a year without anyhing to change, only tyres...

Front tyres are in 45 shore, and rear 34/37, very long lifespan..

The first 1/8 onroad category in RC history.

I love it.

Au revoir

actually this thread lost track, because this is not just about the 1/8th 2wd pan cars or the diffuser, but the electric drivetrain.

Those are two different cars. Notice the first few shots have a fuel tank? They make it both ways.

Do any tracks in the US have a classic(2wd~vintage) 1/8 class? Our offroad club run a vintage class from time to time, depending on the turn-out and race schedule. Seems like the classic would be a good primer for a Spec class, yet I have no clue of the price...........

Oh hell yeah ....
I'd love to have a scaled down brushless li-po powered LMP or even an F1
If Serpent would re-make that F180 into an electric car they might just have something there. The defuser, the engineering ... can't we all just get along?
Conversions just don't cut it in my book. My cars are all neet and functional. Nitro is just to damn costly and takes too much time to clean(and is stinky to boot). These pics Tom posted make me want to race outside again... but not with nitro!
