      At TFTR (Templestowe) you do get occasional guys turning up with 1/18ths.

      No rules for those, so most get placed in Mini class. If its a modded 1/18ths you’ve got a good chance to outrun the Minis – just don’t let them catch up and RUN OVER YOU. :blush:

      Biggest handicap with 1/18 is need to carry the race transponder. Its a pretty big chunk of deadweight and will affect your handling.

      that’s true. i remember a day when we mounted a camera and a 9v battery to leon’s mrs4 and the added weight up top made it useless in a turn, it never stayed upright. the transponders are a little lighter than that, but not much.
      there’s no way i could happily mount one on a 1:28:sad::8ball:
