USA OUTFIT
« on: August 06, 2015, 07:47:01 AM »
Whats up guys thought I stir it up abit here.I'm in the USA, California. Built a homebuilt outfit, out of a AE 10 L pan car and having a blast with it. I belong to RC bike club here but nothing going on here in sidecars. Whats the state of sidecar RC over there now days? Sure wish a kit or body was available in the states  ;D Thanks Rich T.

The Mardave1/8th outfit is still available in the UK, using 1/12 pan car parts, but the shells are a little small for a 1/10 car-based chassis.
We did get a few shells from a French rc shop a while back, I'm sure there's details in here or over on rc groups: try searching for 'Superside', which is the French 1/10-based class. They're more like 1/6 scale complete, and from what I understand are mostly scratch built.
We have a small handful of regular sidecar pilots and generally get  three racing at the nationals, but it's never taken off in a big way...

Thanks Adder for the info will look in to that. How did the gyro issue finally pan out? I would like to try one. Thanks again Rich T. RCMCC

Gyros calm the outfit down, and are much easier to drive as a result, but don't compensate completely for poor set up. We have some use them, some don't. If you've got a well sorted outfit that works well without, it's probably unnecessary, but it certainly helps a more basic vehicle get around a track!
