there are quite a few,

Mclaren, Enzo, Mercielago, Diablo, Ford GT, Mustang, BMW M3, SLR, and the new Aston Martin DBR9

Aston Martin DBR9 would be a good option... As would the Mazda 787B shaved for 98mm, with lexan wing that doesnt hang off the back. Both bodies support 2n/3w offsets. I had the Aston on my Pan car chassis for a little while... felt pretty good too.

What's the difference between pan car chassis and a normal chassis?

Maybe pan car chassis means P28/Sinister/MRCG? Those do take primarily 98mm bodies.

Personally I'm excited about the 2007 Super GT 350Z. Though it's not natively 98mm, once you stretch it out to that wheelbase it's so fast and planted.

I think Pan Car is a colloquial term for non-production racing machines built along the lines of those featured in the Le Mans races. The word Pan Car seems to be derived from the fact that these low-slung, aerodynamic racers with their flat underbelly resemble a flat and shallow cooking pan. They are characterised by the following attributes:

Low slung and wide track profile.
Flat underbody to generate increased downforce.
C0ckpit styled, centrally placed single seater layout (damned word censors!).
Aerodynamically efficient design with judicious use of wings, diffusers and splitters.
A single continuous body shell wrapped around the entire chassis, including the wheels.


Rule #5 is the reason why an F1 car cannot be considered as a Pan Car. That's because, although it satisfies the first four criteria, its exposed wheels aren't shrouded within the body like a Pan Car's. This is my take on what separate Pan Cars from regular and F1, DTM, WRC and Touring cars.

By the way, this is Wikipedia's idea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan-Car) of a Pan Car :D

exactly.. kinda.. This is a for a project car that uses parts from a mr-02 and from an iwaver 02m is going brushless/li-po. to see pics just look at the "best set-up for an iwaver 02m" thread. I love the iwaver front ends and hate the spring rear ends so I merged the front of an 02m and the rear of an mr-02 via a carbon fiber chassis.:) IT LIVES and handles VERY well!

Aston Martin DBR9 would be a good option... As would the Mazda 787B shaved for 94mm, with lexan wing that doesnt hang off the back. Both bodies support 2n/3w offsets. I had the Aston on my Pan car chassis for a little while... felt pretty good too.

Hi Eugene,

Is this the mazda you showed me at the World's? Can you post a pic of it or pm me. I really like the orange/green mazda body but don't like the 102 much.

Thanks!

I drove the white Mazda 787 in the mod 2wd, 98mm. Setup was almost identical to my Pan car. By Pan car, I mean the MR02 chassis that is used for Pan car class. If I was referring to a pan chassis, I would refer to it by the name of the chassis, MRCG, Sinister...

Tjay, I dont remember which Mazda I showed you. I had one setup for 98mm and one setup for 102mm. The 102mm later became the chassis under my pan car after a different board in the chassis I was using for Pan started shutting down on me. I didnt want to take chances, so I made a chassis change (also had WTF installed on the 102mm setup).

Eugene: I can't remember if it was a 98 or 102. I can only remember it on the track. That thing looked hooked up!

I only put the 102mm car on the track once, and didnt like it... I think its the 98mm car that you saw, it was hooked up. I made a pretty big change before the main, going to the WTF front end, and took a little while to adjust. I thought we were going to have a practice between the last qualifier and the main.
