Advantage Hobby had the bodies and foams in stock, so I ordered from them this time.

Hi guys,
I wanna play with a new pro10 car, but I'm kinda confused about what model to buy..
I'm in Europe, so I was leaning toward a new Xray X10 2015 cause spare parts and customer care is easy to get.
Can someone explain to me the difference of the most used pro10 model?
Thank you in advance

Check and see what others are running at your track. You might be able to pick up someone's spare or old chassis just to try. If you're set on starting new, find a Corally or XRay. Corally has 235 cars. XRay will have to be upgraded from 200 to 235mm. It will still be an awesome car. If you want to be different, get the new SpeedMerchant Roadkill 10.

Where you at??
Corally is one of the companies who sell 235MM cars as are RCDevil,Speedline,VIP Performance and some others.
Xray you need to convert to 235MM with the LAJF kit and IRS rear axle.

There is no class currently where I run now (just 2 o 3 casual), but I wanna try something different from the usual touring cars we see here everyday (I already run a not so mainstream Awesomatix).

I will start with a 200mm pancar (I don't know where to ask, so I wrote in this thread), eventually I will upgrade to 235mm.

Is tire truing mandatory to have good performance?
How many discharge I can get from a set of foams before they start to fall apart?
I always raced with rubbers so I dont know how foams perform...

It's good to see others are trying Pro10, even though there seems to be a large variation in motors and cell counts used lol. Good luck getting something going @ TQ and have fun!

Depending on what tires you have it is not Always mandatory
BSR come trued at 60MM what a great diameter is for outdoor tracks.
On carpet it is a whole other story
If you want your tires to last, use every heat a different set.
This because if you use tire fluid, the tires become so soft that they chunk if you use them more then once a day.
For maintenance for the tires, clean them after a race day with Dreft(if they sell it where you live) and low warm water.
Rub the soapy water good in the tires and then wrinse them with clean water.
Let them dry without heat and store them in sealed plastic bags or in Pringles containers.
If will keep your tires perfect.

thank you so much
Another question.. what kind of gearing I need to get?
I will run a 10.5 on 2s (blinky mode) in a track where I usually run touring blinky 13.5 at 4.5fdr.

Starting with 60mm foams, my fdr must be around? 5? 6? I really don't have any clues..

With pancars you don't use a fixed FDR this due to wear of the foam tires
It depends on lenght and layout of track
Short tech track i run a rollout of 36 to 38.
Big track i run rollout from 42 up.
This is with boosted 10.5 class
Rollout is tire diameter x 3.1416 / spur teeth x pinion teeth.
You have to adapt it with tire wear.
Where are you located?? and what it your track size?
Got pic's or better yet movie?

Regards Roy

This might make the order of operations more obvious:

rollout = (tire_diameter x 3.14 x pinion_teeth) / (spur_teeth)

Outcome is the same
So both can be applied

I will also run in a smaller technical indoor asfalt track when the weather will be bad.

In that configuration it is technical and you should start with a rollout of 38 to 40.
Temp motor and esc after 3 minutes and if temp is ok gear up.
Run again and do the same till you find the right rollout for that track.
Don't go overboard when gearing up.
Just 1 teeth at the time on pinion and when tires wear compensate.
Looks fun tho.

Back in the heyday of pro10, they ran some pretty hot motors (thirdplace, toadyy, MarkA and Boomer could tell stories of the days at SoCal and Revelation)
