The 10L3t was a On-Road 1/10th scale pan car, it's been discontinued for a few years, and is fairly hard to find, but not a bad car.

The 10L4 is a Oval Car, as is the 10L3 (w/o the t)

The New Team Associated 1/10th Pan Car for On-Road racing I believe is called the 10R5

Associated 10R5 web site

If 1/12th scale is what you are after I do believe there was both a 12L3 and a 12L4 1/12th On-Road versions.

Hi mate, there's a couple of classes for you to run in with your choices. First up, is 1/12th, which runs for 8 minutes. The latest AE car is the 12R, although the car before that, the 12L4, is still a great car. The other class is a 'narrow' pro 10 class, which is what the 10R car is for. I think these only race for 5 minutes. Both classes use 4 cell packs at the mo. Go along to your local club and talk to people there about what they are racing, both are great classes, but for me, 1/12th is best (I have races 1/12th for over 20 years!!). Cheers mate, Chris.
