Only when racing becomes Australian Touring SUVs...!? 

Nobody buying Aussie 4dr sedans anymore, last remaining survivor Commodore soon to be killed off to join the dead Falcon/Pintara/Magna/Valiant/P76/Austin1800.

 

Today's F1 has lost its magic too.

100% agree.

But for instance look at how much the Mustang had to be changed to fit within the specs. It's less of a Mustang than what the Commodore is a Commodore.

We will also never see another Jack Brabham...

I really loved reading through this thread! Some top notch stuff on display.

Can you still get wide body shells, if so, what am I looking for?

Liking the idea of buggy touring cars, I think thats yet another idea on the build list!

Just thought i'd share footage of my very first experience driving on an on-road course. See youtube link below. 32 years of procrastinating and avoidance finally comes to an end. Way more fun than i imagined... I don't know why i was so intimidated before... Now i need to go back for more! The chassis is a tamiya ta02sw. Shell is Tamiya 300zx imsa gto. Motor is a mabuchi 27t silver can armature in a trinity D4 mod can. Seems to go alright but seems under geared for the track, so i'll be looking to buy the high speed gear set soon 1f642.png the circuit is Whalan model car club in Sydney Australia when we're in the middle of the bush fires. Hence the strong wind and smoke. Anyway, happy RC-ing! 1f642.png

Also anyone else excited for the re-release of the ta03 chassis? I sure am!

How about TRF spec? Oh yeah!
Tamiya TA03R-S TRF Special Chassis Kit
I wonder if they'll release the front motor version too <3

and yes, on-road racing on a course is a lot of fun, especially when all cars have the same motor.......here is a run of a cup race i attended in season 17 /18, running my TA-05v2, all cars featuring the Carson cup machine 23T brushed motor......i am starting from pole position....

It went great :) though a bit too much understeer, so setup needs a bit of tuning. Might be impossible to fix as I think its too rear heavy. Though speed wise, she ran great with a trinity speed gems jet (11T double)
