Hey, a thread discussing the perfect design for a pancar! AllrighT!!
I've been looking into the designs of pancars a lot lately. I've built my own Asso mutant Pro ten Car. It's not 1/12th, 1/10th, but that's basically a 1/12th on steroids.
I've posted some pictures here:
I have observed that most carpet 4 cell 1/12's use damper tubes, while asphalt cars seem to use the old disc damper.
I prefer either complete shocks (like Asso micro shocks) or tube dampers, because you can adjust forward and side traction seperately. Also when you use damper fluid on the friction plates it easily gets pushed out and it gets contaminated very quickly.
Hey Barry White, have you got an old Pro ten lying around? You would be a nice addition to the group of crazy racers I'm with running the Inter Club Competition (ICC) here in Holland and Germany. We might even race in Belgium in 2005!
We have some national top racers running with us, as well as racing team Viol from Germany, all racing and competing together in a very relaxed atmosphere.
