Welcome to Shoutbox. Post your viewpoints here, but keep your posts civil.
Keith Tanaka: Just a heads up. This year's D3 Hardbody Nats will have a different race schedule. GTPs will replace one of the least popular races, '46-'56 NASCARs. 3 races on each day (Sat, Sun.) as in past Nats. I"ll post info on this year's Nats soon. Jul 6, 2015 20:50:36 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Slo Mo definitely helps to better understand what our cars are experiencing thru the turns. Seeing is believing in this case. It's obvious that the cars may be faster thru the turns than we can drive efficiently (excessive drift, hopping, chattering, etc.) Jul 5, 2015 19:20:00 GMT -8
Barrister: The Slo Mo videos are great. I cannot get enough of seeing the cars from such a different perspective. Jul 5, 2015 15:23:40 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I posted another Slo Mo video clip of the GTP Enduro above. This time its the "lead on" turn. Jul 5, 2015 14:33:56 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: It may have all started in 1977 but we're going to use the ones from 1997 to present. The listing of WRC cars in the post above are the ones that initially will be included in the WRC rules. Jul 5, 2015 9:12:13 GMT -8
timneja: What body is going to be so dominant? WRC actually started in about 1977! I'll be looking for a nice Peugeot!! Or Lancia, or Toyota, or Subaru, or hmmmm? Jul 4, 2015 21:53:26 GMT -8 *
Keith Tanaka: Craig N., the VW Beetle is for Rallycross. Looks like VW put a Beetle body onto their WRC chassis. Same motor as their WRC car but less restrictor plate equals 200 more hp. We haven't finalized our WRC Enduro car list so we might add more in the future. Jul 4, 2015 15:42:01 GMT -8
crgnelson: Maybe that was Rallycross. Jul 4, 2015 15:11:41 GMT -8
crgnelson: I think I saw someplace that VW prepped some New Beetles for WRC racing in order to promote them, since they have the same chassis as the more boxy model - Polo? Jul 4, 2015 15:07:16 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Tim, initially we'll go with 1997 as that's the year FIA established their rules for WRC. Prior to 1997, the cars raced were of different sizes and types. We don't need another '53 Corvette situation to deal with. Jul 4, 2015 12:39:46 GMT -8
timneja: Keith--why 1997? There's a LOT of 80's rally car kits as well. Some are pretty cool! Jul 4, 2015 11:05:50 GMT -8
timneja: Hahah Gonzo!! WRC cars will be FUN!! Gotta pick up a couple. He Keith---do you know what kits are available from 97 on?? Jul 4, 2015 10:38:58 GMT -8
gonzalez: HEY TIM your enduro car was a JALOPY!! gotta luv it Jul 3, 2015 23:58:53 GMT -8
bob krigbaum: I like it, now to get building! Jul 3, 2015 23:27:50 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I just posted above a listing (with photos) of the actual WRC cars raced since 1997. For you Mini lovers, the "present day" Mini Cooper races in WRC (since 2011). Jul 3, 2015 16:31:53 GMT -8 *
Keith Tanaka: It looks like next year's enduro will be for WRC cars. The next Model Kit Expo is Sunday, July 12th. Time to check out the WRC kits available. The rules for WRC will be established in the next month or so. The WRC cars allowed would be 1997 to present. Jul 3, 2015 16:16:43 GMT -8 *
timneja: I'm in for another one!!! Let's use Jalopies!!! hahah!! Jul 3, 2015 12:43:00 GMT -8
gonzalez: hey keith nov has 5 sundays this year. maybe 5th sunday enduro huh? Jul 3, 2015 10:40:24 GMT -8
the Barrister: I am in too for another enduro this winter. Jul 3, 2015 10:02:14 GMT -8
bob krigbaum: Count me in for a winter enduro, I have to travel out of town for Christmas and will be out on Dec. 10-14 as well. So if it is not scheduled while I'm out of town I'll be there, if I can find co-drivers. Jul 2, 2015 20:26:52 GMT -8
