@ IROCC we use a base weight of 1200 grams and the cars come in any were between 1200 and 1300. To make the car work with a lot of HP you need a body with a lot of down force. Almost all the cars have the 235mm kit install

The Pantoura looks a little different than the Gen X-10 but actually work very similar. I just was building a 235mm Pantoura and Iīm using very similar setup than a friend with his 235mm Gen X-10. I donīt see why with 200mm this should be different.
Maybe you should change some things on the Pantoura what are outdated now.
I would go with the low rollcenter kit for rear pivots and change the position from the tubes so these are going to the outside on a straight line not at an angle.

Yes downforce is important with highpower motors. We are running Lipo only with 4.5 to 5.5T motors on our 235mm cars. As bodies just the Porsche and Lola gas bodies are working with this power. The Peugeot is not enough.

Yeah, thats what I needed. Its been quite some time since I last used standard stuff instead of metric. So I wanted to get me some standard drivers before I start building the car. Want to avoid using those allen wrenches as much as possible.

Thanks.

What body are you using? I just picked u a 3.5r Novak and running the 200mm lola by protoform. I have the saleen and corvette but for a fast track, the lola seems to be working for me. I was looking at the Mulsanne LMP but not sure if it can handle the 3.5 motor. Looking forward to some testing this weekend, will try to get some video if possible.

We are running 235mm cars where the wider bodies generate more downforce than 200mm anyway. But as highdownforce bodies are generating even more downforce we use Serpent Porsche 962 and Serpent/Frewer Lola as used with the old 235mm gas cars. OK gascar bodies are not the best looking ones but with an "optimized" colourscheme itīs not that bad, at least for the Porsche.
