In my mind the courses are rough with some steep sections but the gates are class 3 width and spread out over a longer distance, so there can be a bit of speed involved. And I think the course should be timed. I dont think a winch will ever be needed.


I know these are 2wd but its the kinda idea on courses and what not...

I might just use the Tamiya wild dagger chassis that I have, got the dual esc with it aswell so I will just use two stock 27t tamiya motors and take one out if you guys deem it as an advanatage, and just go rwd or fwd =), and use the tires seen on the XV01 I linked in the earlier post.

I think a rally tyre is gonna be too small but if we go with a 100mm max tyre then its up to you.

Your TB01 looks just the kinda thing iv been trying to get across

Think it needs to be 4wd, 2wd isnt a good idea.

100mm tyre size max sounds fine

Someone has to bring along one of these, just for the old-school epicness: No need to lock the diff, as it never had one (yeah I know 2WD would suck, but hey)!

I agree but.....if you want to use 2wd then this class would allow it.

I'm gonna try and write up some rules tonight!

Andy would you add brushed motor only? Or we going to include brushless setup as well?

My vote would be to not restrict either motors or batteries. Let folks use what they have lying around?

For example, I have an old 13.5T brushless motor kicking around that I would use as it is less maintenance than brushed. With the tire restrictions for this new 'Class' I doubt that racking up with a 6S rig and a high kV motor would gain much advantage?

No motor limit (I'll add that into the draft rules) but I think the battery spec should stay.

I guess with some of the terrain being rough having a monster brushless setup wouldn't be an advantage at all ... ideally, you want courses that mix it up enough that a thorough all-rounder is the sweet spot!

I might have started planning a suitable truck ...

Agreed, my e-Revo (on 4S, let alone 6S) cannot trail for toffee Avec le gear differential, le trail c'est tres difficile!

It's an interesting idea. Although I do like the idea of 2wd as a class of it's own.but that's probably because of the old school almost single wheel drive cars shown in the later part of the thread. The idea of the course designed around those would certainly sort out the cars.
