AWD slot cars are usually not as fast as 2WD on larger circuits. On very small ( 8 x4) rally tracks there is little to pic between the two. But then the track is more open the Driven front wheels seem to cause handling problems,even if driven faster than the rears.
Subaru are racing in the JGTC series, with some what modified bodies.
Monte, I'd like the Peugeot 406 Silhouette made legal for next year. OA width of rear/front tire footprint to be the same as all other cars. Main reason is, the "old Pug 406's" are becoming very hard to find. This would allow "newer version" without any extra rear "footprint" .
I've been looking for a different car to run in the next series. Regarding the Ford Focus, all the ones I have found so far are the rally version, two doors. Are the two doors allowed? If yes, can I remove the oversized rear spoiler and replace it with one that is correct to the touring car?
I'm ok with just yanking out that sack of potatoes in the passenger seat and calling it good. Might want to at least decorate it so it looks less like a rally car. Does anyone actually make a 2-door version? It would seem pointless to have a type of car allowed that can't be found.
I geuss it all depends on which continent you are and what Touring Car championship you are referring to, I am pretty sure they raced the pre-2010 4dr and the post 2010 5dr STi in the South African series.
I am not 110% sure and since I am currently on vacation out of country, I am not able to check with my regular source back in SA.
Looks as if there are also a few 4 & 5 door models running in the Canadian Touring car championship - much closer to home!
Ok I need to know if either of these would be appropriate size to use on the front of my Pug entry. The left is the originals off the front. Right is the original off the rear. The pic with body would be with the original fronts. Could someone give me a ruling Please?
