Just curious as I have never owned a 1/10 pan car before, how would this car perform compared to an electric or nitro touring car on a road course?

Jason, did you get a chance to talk to Mike about maybe hosting a Pro10 class next year at the Birds? I'm sure he would want to see how it gets started first in the next several months. Just curious what he said.

Ever driven 1/12 scale? Same deal, just bigger size. They are very quick in the infield and are more agressive steering than TCs, with more corner speed...they are faster per lap with 7.4v Lipo and 10.5 BL motor than race legal mod TC's, and nitro cars....

You and brushless?? The sky is going to fall.....

Just remember to have "smokin'" by Boston on the Ipod......if your luck is like mine...

Hey Wally. Glad to hear you are thinking of getting a 10th scale pan car. I am wanting to get back to racing one of these, maybe not this one exactly, but a 235mm pan car outside and indoors maybe. So, you wont be alone this summer at Fast Cats. if a few more get them we could have a great class...4 cell 13.5 or 10.5

John

Modified Touring and Nitro Cars are Lunch for these Cars! I am with Cypressmidwest! GTP bodies and Gnarly voltage! 4 Cells are to slow in 1/10th.

I find it funny that all you guys want to run Lipo when NONE of you have the nerve to run mod sedan. Guess what...a 17.5 and a lipo pack in any of these cars will go FASTER than a Mod 6 cell sedan.

I started racing with 1/10th pan cars back in 1989. Our equipment was pretty hurting back then. I normal guy could buy a car and a stock motor and get going without too much trouble.

Fast forward to 1999...new batts, tires and stock motors made the cars ballistic. I tried to get my uncle started running stock 6 cell 235mm pan car and he struggled. With cheap batteries and an off the shelf stock motor the car was faster then the mod sedans. This was outdoors on fairly big tracks. It was WAY WORSE for the guys running indoors.

There was no path to get guys started at a speed they could handle. This was one of the major reasons the class died.

Oval saw this and switched to 4 cell and it saved the class. There 1/10th is more popular than 1/12th.

1/12th switched to 4 cell to reduce speeds and it was successful too.

I have been racing Stock, 19T and Mod 4 cell 1/12 for the last 6 years. None of these classes are slow in any way shape or form.

If you think 4 cell is slow check out the Snowbirds 4 cell stock A main video on www.rc50.com. It is quick and fun. If you want more speed run 19t/10.5 4 cell and you will be going as fast as mod 6 cell sedans. If you really want to go fast run mod 4 cell.

You guys are knocking something I doubt most of you have actually tried.

this car with 6cell or lipo and a 3.5 or a 4.5 will kill 1/10 sedan any day even 4cell i think will bet out a nitro car.
my 1/12 with 4cell and a 9t motor was faster infield than nitro
cant wait for this.

thinking pink rear/x2pink front.
