I think they'd look better than any of the other vintage wheels.

That looks pretty awesome, actually. First I'm hearing of it, though. Maybe he needs more publicity?

Default Scale Spec Update

The Comp Committee recently had occasion to talk about Scale Spec and it is felt that a little corner of the spec can be tidied up.

As regarding front wheel drive sedans--Tamiya FF03, VBC FF12, etc.--the minimum weight requirement is removed. Two reasons:

1. FWD cars are at a traction disadvantage as is. Adding 100g or more to make weight is basically writing them off completely.

2. They're old school and cool. Let's see what they can do! Radical drivetrain efficiency in a cost-effective kit may offer intriguing possibilities.

To cite a parallel, though in no way determinative, authority, current TCS rules omit the minimum weight rule for FWD chassis in the GT3 class. (Which is 1450g, by the way.)

Note, as with all cars in Scale Spec, consideration must be given to scale realism. If it's FWD, the cool factor is maximized by running the body of a full-scale front wheel drive car. It's not an out and out requirement, since obviously, very few of the bodies out there are actually 4WD in 1:1 form. But still...you know what I mean. Be

So I've pieced together a setup, anyone want to tell me how bad I screwed up?

TC6.1 WC

I believe the rear toe is 2 there, unless I'm missing something.

Sorry i didnt get back to you sooner, been busy. Here is a baseline i use for scale spec on carpet:



my scale spec is a regular 6.1, so the camber links are different.

main thing starting out though is consistent setup, which Mike covered above.

Ignore the droop numbers on mine start with 6 and 5 on the AE gauge

I'm planning on being there, might be nice to at least give it a go, yeah. I think it'll feel "foreign" on Sunday no matter how much practice we get, though. Different RX, different settings, different electronics, etc. No pressure

Ok so I think I have this thing set up. I'm going to get there as early as possible. Anyone care to take a look at this thing for me when you get there and get a good chuckle?

I'd be happy to look it over.

I am curious how much a FWD weighs RTR with a shorty pack.
