Default 1/10th 2wd Nitro?

Are there any companies still making these?
Are there conversion kits for 4wd?
Or is this just dead as far as manufactures go?

No company makes them anymore. The 235mm 2wd class was the best class ever. I miss those cars. My impact with a Volvo touring body.

We still run this class here... Awesome class.
I'm a big fan of 2wd, that's why I race Pro10 and F1.
Since you can't get them anymore I might look at Pro12...

Default there is something close...

hiya folks,

For those who are pining for the classic 235mm class, there is something almost as cool.

220mm class!

There are some manufacturers out there who sell mod kits to change your 200mm sedan into a 220mm car.

some makers include Knack racing and Kawahara (defunct).

Tires are wider, front 30mm, rear 35mm if ima not mistaken.

Easy to mod them into 2wd, just remove the front and centre transmission items.

I think would be similar to the resurgence of 1/8th pan class. niche market but i believe it will be more challenging, yet be lower cost then regular 1/10th sedan classes. Also, driving 2wd will force drivers to learn to drive better (from experience playing with F1 cars and 2wd buggies).

-Alexander
p.s. if someone could go google some links, that would be just awesome!
