It's the picture making it look wider. actually the rear was a little too wide for the body so I had to trim the wheels about 3mm to keep them from rubbing on the body.

I'm almost done designing the new kingpin front end and hpe to get more track time soon. No more excuses...

Thanks Howard, I wouldn't say I have plans but I do have the intention.
There is a lot of refinement that needs to take place still and then to figure out where to have the parts made and kited.
I wish I was in southern China this month rather than Shanghai then maybe I can at least shop the project around a little.
I used to have a nice big track twice a month to test on but the RAMS Club in San Jose doesn't have the big'ol parking lot or many 1/8th guys left for that matter.
Hopefully the racers in Europe will take an interest and spur a market to sell to.
I tested on a 1/10th track last time and although it was tight the car turned really well so it was manageable.

After a little accident i had at the beginning of the week(almost ripped off ligaments in ankle) i finally decided to start on builing a propper Pro10 rain car.
Still waiting on some parts to finish the chassis so i can build in the electronics.
Car will be driven with HW Ezrun 80amps sensorless WP ESC,waterrpoof low profile servo, shorty 2S lipo and 10.5 motor.
ESC and reciever will be mounted in front of shorty.
Enjoy pics


Regards Roy

Nice build pics Roy. I hope your ankle sorts itself out. What make/model is the chassis? Is it 235mm?

It's a VIP Racing Vorlon chassis and yes it is 235mm.

Roy, I thought you would send it to me for measuring it... :-)

It will come to you this week Joost.
I needed something to do so sowwy
Allready found a box to ship it in.

@OrganicMechanic...It uses Corally parts to complete the build or if you have the 5.2 bulkheads of Corally, you can use Associated or Xenon front parts

That's quite the different approach on the rear links/pivot setup, at least compared to what I have seen. Looks like a well thought out design!



www.vip-rc.com looks like they also offer a wicked strong lower pod plate for the Corally 10SL. I'd betcha that baby helps to dissipate some motor heat!

@OrganicMechanic...It is called a V-link setup and yes it is different but very smooth.
The RC-Devil car has the same rear end.
Tobias has the links now out of carbon without turnbuckles so no more uneven length.
The side where allready rigid but the V-links not.
Now they both are and rear ride height is not within steps but seamless

Regards Roy

The V-link arrangement is really neat. I made a 1/12 scale car like that several decades ago, and it worked very well. The roll center is at the intersection of the geometric centerlines of the links, so it's easy to adjust the roll center by changing the attachment points of the links, and the roll center can be nearly anywhere (even below ground).

This arrangement has also been used on 1:1 F440/F500 cars (which are kind of like a really big Pro10 that you can ride in!).

Hello Guys,

my english is not the best in writing but i understand all what you writing.

Iīm Tobias from VIP Performance and thank you that my parts and car is knowing not only in Germany and Europe, also in USA!

Iīm a little producer of the car and sell upgradekits for my first car in 2011 and corally 10SL.
Also every customer can get a special car for himself. Talk to me and all is possible.
Not like a local shop were you pic and buy it, no by me you get special parts and cars!

A little bit promotion:

My car and company is the successfullest at the last years.

won in 2011 with the Sonic Prototype the German Nats, winning from Jan Asmer, now better known as Jan Reteisky from the Xray factory Team!
In the following years i was also very successfull with my team!

German Champion 40+ 2012 – Jo Grauer – Sonic CSE
German Vizechampion 2013 – Tobias Weist – Vorlon Prototyp
German Young Champion 2013 – Maxi Vief – Vorlon Prototyp
Open European Champion 2014 – Tobias Weist – Vorlon
Open European Vizechampion 2014 – Steven Dehyle – Vorlon
BeNeLux+ Champion 2014 – Tobias Weist – Vorlon

We hope that the old, best and fastest class will race soon not only in Germany, but also in other Countries, maybe again in USA and will again a WC!


Also i produce extra for Corally, Asso and other Tuning parts like Podplates, conversionktis to 235mm for Asso, Serpent and Xray like height adjusters, Podplates, Dampferplates and many more. Only the good selling parts are at my blog listed. For other and special parts, especially prototype parts you can get from me! All with Carbon and Alu in 7075T6 and 6085T in 2D and 2,5D is possible!

New information about parts, racing news in german and some in english also in Facebook.

Thank you!

Best racing regards

Tobias

Default motor question

hi guys, i would just like to get some advice from the pro10 guys out there, which motors do you prefer, i myself am after a mod motor around 4.5t or 8000kv that does not consume much power or heat, torque is not a requirement, i am just after a motor which is not overly powerful and heavy on batteries but can handle sustained high rpm... so who better to ask then you guys! maybe i am reading it wrong but i assume carrying speed efficiently is the name of the game in your class , not how quick you can get out of a corner.
any advice would be appreciated.
cheers
