Renault Megane race

I thought this would be a cool race 2 have as a spec race.
The rules won't be wildly different from other races I've set up with the exception of the following.....

Of coarse the only body allowed would be the TRP renault megane body.
U have 2 use all pieces that come with the body including rims.
U can't trim any part of the body 4 example, no trimming of the windows, corners, parts, etc.

There will be a weight limit 4 this race but not sure what it will be at this moment.

Spec motor. I was thinking speedy 07 bushing motor 4 this race.

Other then that fets, 1/28 scale chassis, and board are up 2 U. And of coarse the rules are up 4 changing if nobody likes them.

it may be more practical to run this before the m3 class due to ordering time, etc.

Any idea when the date of this race will be.

We just started a class at Action RC with these bodies, and its a lot of fun to drive. Very competetive as well. I dropped it on my f430GT chassis, and it handled even better. I made no change to the setup. More steering in general, and surprising stability. It doesnt have as much roll as I would have thought.

Using the stock wheels should not be a requirement. That rules out the AWD chassis entirely. +1mm offset on the front does not work. There is no clearance. The tire rubs even when the knuckle is as low as it can be. TRP was contacted, and they responded stating that they use different wheels when they race. Why they did not really test the body before production for compatability and either include 0mm front wheels or modify the front wheel wells baffles me. Even with 0mm wheels, I have to use the tallest travel limiters and use thin tires with reduced steering lock. That is the only issue that I have found so far. Maybe the new PN front body mount is the answer, to raise the front end enough that the wheel will clear...

thank you for bring the wheel issue up. after posting yesterday, i tried running it and indeed the stock wheels simply do not work on an mr-02 as they indeed hit the wheel well right as the fender flair meets the hood.

i too put positioned the body clips to get the back as low as possible and i still have plenty of space it seems.

thanks for the tip about the limiter, i'll have to dig a pair of those out and fit some 0 dish wheels or something. no way atomic ts wheels are going to fit under here unless you get -1 maybe. might be able to use a classic wheel with normal tires? the smaller diameter would allow you to keep a higher offset.

i have -1 up front currently and it still hits with relatively new tires. i have +2 rears that fit snug.
