do they all have to be off road? no tarmac setup? that makes it hard if you are using a touring car. they are kind of limited on ride height.

because this is an offroad based build off. the only reason no on road bigger than 1/18 is because of the scale.

There is just as much on road as there is off road.

Gymkhana
Pro touring
Targa
Hill climb

And so on.

I would like to build a Targa Porsche but i can't because of your rule.

Jeremy.

just a question VWM, with my build , things have changed a little (which is not a problem i just have to work around the details) but i have since been informed that the pikes peak hillclimb (that my build was semi based on) has since been completely paved meaning no dirt. ultimately, my car will still have big dirt capability as that was its primary design, but im now in a similar boat to bajaboy, where my (inspiration wasnt at the time) but is now a tarmac based rally.

so whats your thought?

Pikes peak hasn't been completely paved but will be next year.I think that's what is going to happen.
