Might be tricky finding a body to cover the wider track of a buggy (?)

1 locked diff should be ok, either front or rear.

Sounds like an awesome idea, I have quite a few TB01 and TT01 chassis lying around, and just purchased a TL01 =)

I know it is only RWD so it wouldn't be amazing but would this be something along the lines you guys are thinking?

It's just my spare M04-M chassis with the rally blocks, the body would need a little trim.





or TB01 (Would require some mods to the chassis.

You would need something with 4wd for sure and lock one of the diffs. There is alot of info online about locking TA-01 or similar chassis diffs.

You could run the slash i think. But the main idea that Andy was having was ti keep it cheap and a good laugh. Don't know what the others think

Don't worry about the Slash. I'll part-invoice you for the XV-01

BTW, I think something like 'Tamiya 1/10th rally style' cars makes sense (there some models from other manufacturers that you could stick on rally cross tires, body & raise the suspension and use e.g. HPI http://www.hpiracing.com/en/kit/114343), otherwise it could all get .

I get the idea about the standard can motors, but I might come out in hives or something with the stress of not being able to take them apart to do maintenance

To keep the Class pretty standard someone measure a Tamiya Platform and we can sort out some MAX/MIN
Measurments
Also a Max Tyres Size
That way you'll eliminate the need to say you cant run this or that becuase it will be obvious.

Think that makes sense
