All

What are peoples thoughts about the new World GT class?
Just wondering whether its worth running a class for the summer if there is enough interest.

Both the Associated and XRay sites have info on their respective cars. But there is no info on any prospective rules, such as motors, cells, tyres(?) - all of which could have a big impact on the costs and therefore interest (or would the club make up its own rules?).

Also how resillient would these cars be when colliding with those unforgiving lumps of wood that are used as track markers (I've put this bit in so that Brian can make a comment!!).

Richard

Current rules are on the BRCA website. Currently they are 4 cell 19t/10.5 and running a couple of control tyres oh and bodies to be front engine GT type cars 200mm.

It was just a though really as there seems to be lots of people moving away from touring cars and this is what they are trying to fill the gap with. As for strength I'm not sure but the US race them indoors and out and most of their indoor tracks have wooden track markers.

Seems like an interesting idea (does anyone do a Ferrari 250GTO body?) But me with a 10.5 powered projectile - they don't make wooden barriers that strong!!!!

I'm sure you would be fine plus its only 4 cell so it wont be as lively as you think. Aldershot race them and use a HPI Saturn 20t motor and Lipo and its meant to be inbetween 13.5 and 10.5 speeds.

I've got one coming ;)

To save costs may I suggest we use our existing Lipo's with 13.5 brushless.
And yes there is a chassis available that will take Lipo, or come to it a 5 or 6 cell. It's called something like CRC Gen X10....

isn't it Tim ? :D

I am very interested partly because my dad is building one,
and also I've seen them on TV... They look fun to drive!
But I will wait and see how my dad's one goes before I think about getting one. 8-)
