There is an additional class to announce, it is AWD SPEC. The idea is similar to SC USA and we have run it the past two Saturdays. The entries are growing, and it should be even better this weekend.

Here is how AWD looks now...

BODY painted or masked bodies only
ELECTRONICS open
BATTERIES open
MOTOR open
SUSPENSION open
WHEELS MA only
TIRES Atomic

AWD SPEC
CHASSIS Kyosho MA-010 94mm wheelbase only
BODY 94mm ASCs with minimal/no modifications only, no lexan windows or wings
ELECTRONICS open
BATTERIES AAA only
MOTOR Kyosho X-Speed or any Atomic 48t(Stock-BB Standard-17mm Stock Plus-17mm Stock ZF)
SUSPENSION open
WHEELS MA only
TIRES Atomic

Would it be possible to run a 90mm Porsche GT3 RS in the SC class? I see no disadvantage at all unless we start being pedantic about the rules?

In SC the idea was to not allow 98mm cars to present a tuning challenge. If you want to go 90mm I think it is within the spirit of the class. I may have to join you. After all the Porsche wheel time in Box Stock I am enjoying them much more. I want to try a GT-1 on my AWD at 94mm next.

Thumbs up

90/94mm AWDs are awesome there are many body styles to choose from. With none to few tunings Richmond's WRX was able to get up to speed quickly and handled transitions like a rally car. In fact there are a variety of classes/body styles from Box-stock to Full blown 2WD/AWD MOD racing at Cruizin which are fun to drive and watch.

At first I didnt care for the no 98mm limit. I had spent a long time developing my 98mm Mosler, and it was handling great. I spoke with Gihosu why the rules couldnt just limit the motor to 48t/X-Speed, after the conversation, I understood, and spent the rest of the day changing my 90mm skinny AWD experiment that I had raced for the last 2 weeks to 94mm with the 360GTC body. In the end I was very pleased with the results. I dont know if it is faster than the Mosler, but I would say it is very close.

While the DWS and SAS can do 98mm easily, the standard AWD chassis cannot. This means that anyone that wants to change to 98mm has to buy an adapter kit, which is somewhat expensive and creates some tweak and slop in the chassis. As Sai said, there are so many options for 94mm and 90mm bodies, that you can almost never get bored by the body choice.

If anyone has an AWD and would like to join the class but doesnt know much about setup, feel free to approach me for some setup advice.

I think that 10+ rule would be cool. So it is very similar to the USA Spec, just with a different spec motor rule. (48t motor rather than a 60t)

10+ rules would put to good use all my spare 10r that's gathering dust so i'm up for that as well.
