I'm in with my merv (VXL):thumbsup:I can't believe indoor season is right around the corner, time sure flies when you're having fun racing dirtrunners style. Toby's always bringing something for prizes, thank you. Since there seems to be some interest in running a mini offroad class (not Coopers) I thought we could discuss rules. I'm thinking leave it fairly open so we can run mini 8ights, mervs, rc18s, etc. Maybe a wheelbase limit since each mfr. has their own ideas when it comes to scale. Battery, I guess 6 cell nimh and 2s lipo like the rest. Since my mini 8ight is modified, obviously I'd like open motor, esc, and tires. Maybe a maximum tire diameter. What do you guys think?
It's been 17.5 tour rules for the car, back of the body left in, 3.5 minimum lap.Which rule set is the breakout pan following?
Most of the touring cars have been belt drive. Once in a while someone will dust off a TC3 and run.Are a fair number of drivers with tourers running shaft drives, or are you guys mostly using belts?
Belts are smoother for carpet racing, the downside of belt driven cars is if you run them on asphalt they're unreliable but since it's carpet, go belt. I run an Xray T1FK05 and it's pretty baller, you can get one on ebay now a days for like $150Which rule set is the breakout pan following?
