A couple acres of land, some fresh asphalt and a sunny weekend. Now that's a dream I could live with. Throw in F1 for that matter as they are pan cars for all intents. I still feel that WGT needs to shift to GT2 bodies and go to a 21.5 or 17.5 2S format for outdoor. Some tires that fit the scale appearance better would be nice.

GT2 - 17.5/21.5 260 max wheelbase
USLPM realistic (270mm to 280mm wheelbase, LM-1 or stretched 200mm wide pancar/F1 car) - 13.5/17.5 , single bolt foam tires
LM-1 - not needed, rolled into USLMP
Pro10 Stock - 10.5 cap or higher turn
Pro10 Mod - no limit
F-1 Mod - Foam tires - no limit
F-1 realistic - 17.5/21.5 Rubber tires

@OrganicMechanic...Will let you know how the servo holds up and what brand it is
I bought the servo because i need to build me a rain car and this sevo is water proof and cheap but with BB and metall gears.
So if it turns out as a mistake, no big amount of money is involved
@Liljohn...Your welcome.
I want to share as much as possible to get the Pro10 group as big as possible around the word


Regards Roy

Makes me wish the back of my car lot was in better condition... I can park the "not yet for sale" cars around the front and we could even stand on the roof for driving if we had pit crews lol. I also dream sometimes...

Without getting into detail I can attest to servo speed being too fast for the grip level of the tire on corner entry, causing a push. I experienced it this past weekend with my LM1 and had to adjust my driving accordingly.

Repave it! Increases your property value and gives us a nice place to race

I drive almost 2 hours to run Formula R/C, which is nice don't get me wrong, your place can't be much farther

Default can't wait...

By the time I get back from Defcon-22, the Roadkill 10 ought to be sitting on my desk.

I haven't driven a monster in a good long time.

The car dealership is located @ N2159 County Road E Redgranite, WI
about 1.5hrs north of Madison, less then 1.5hrs south of Wausau, less then 1hr west of Oshkosh. Pretty central location.

You don't even want to know what I was quoted to repave... I suppose someday I can always build a nice European style 1/8th scale size road course with grass infields... wow dreaming again. I did however build a dirt oval track in my backyard. So I guess it's not a lack of motivation, just a lack of funds and not needing anymore on my plate.

This to the fact that the level of grip from the tires is not enough to follow the servo/steering movement.
Turn speed a bit down or use a slower servo and the problem is gone.

This is entirely a matter of personal preference and driving style. For me, a servo can NEVER be too fast. I want the front wheels to do exactly what I tell them to do, just as if my hands are on the (imaginary) steering wheel in the car. It's the only way I can truly know exactly what the car is doing, so I can make appropriate adjustments. I prefer smooth steering to come from my fingers, not from any electronic limitation.

That's awesome! Looks like the front is wider than the rear? Why is that?

That is a work of art, Mr. Yoder!

Do you have plans for production?
