Just goes to show that rear motered cars can still be competitive .even if its harder work

Default rear wheels drived!

I think it states in the BRCA rules, that 2wd is rear wheels driven hence why I said rear. but stand to be corrected....

personally I don't give a damn what axle is driven. As where you put the motor. or your servo.
or what you run, brushed, brushless, nicads, lipos, your own made rubber band suspension. lol.....

2wd = 2 wheels driven..... that better?

and front wheel drive in competitive off road does not exist so sort of a pointless moan really......... if that changes then great, but find me a racer that runs a 2wd front wheels driven? (and I mean races, nit developing)....

bored now........... out.

In the 2015 IFMAR rules for the off road worlds it states that if a 2wd drive is front wheel drive then it has to race against the 4wd cars

Surely 2wd drive is 2wd....

Have a look at the cars they drive, that should answer your question.

I'd like to see 17.5t and rear motor common place at most clubs like the yanks do it. Most cars are far too over powered in my opinion and rear motor is more rewarding to drive anyway. It will never happen though
