Default 1/10 lola class

seems that it not all that popular? to me it seems 1/10th car handles better and you can drive them much faster then sedan bodies. just trying to see what the ideas on this class body.

Been there, done that already. ROAR still has the rules for the 235mm/outlaw 200mm (Lola) in their 2010 rule book but the class has been dead for at least 3 to 4 years easily. On the west coast, they tried to do a 220mm class but it really did not catch on anywhere else and is pretty much dead on the west coast as well. Lola bodies for 200mm are also not being produced and aren't easily obtainable.

220mm class is alive n kicking over in the uk, but the 235 class was always popular over here, much more fun to drive than 200mm touring cars

Hey Jas1!

Are you running 220mm this year?

Cheers

The one thing I miss is the 235mm 2wd class with the touring car body over the 4wd class with the Lola body. The 2wd class made you learn how to finess a car around the track with smoothness and skill. That class actually help me to become of better onroad driver due because it made me realize the nuiances of proper chassis setup and smoother throttle control. Lola body is ok but it is nothing like mastering the touring car body with proper choice, chassis setup, and tire selection.

Hi Jas

I was thinking of having a go if there are any races on when I'm home. I'll put the RRR back together and get myself a decent engine.

JLock. Try the 1/8th 2wd class that is big on France. 1/8 2wd pan cars with low power buggy engine but still fast. They look like my old PB I had in the 80's

Cheers

Cheers
