I can bring plenty of whine to go along with all that cheese you guys have up there.

I imagine the temperatures up there are nice this time of year compared to here. Yesterday in Topeka the air temp was 100F, track temp 137F.

What other additional classes usually run at your track? Do you have an annual big race?

We have our annual MARCCA Madness race, but its toward spring. We run VTA, F1, Mini, LM-1 21.5, USGT, and there is talk of 12th scale and 17.5 sedan. Pro10 will be added. We should do a fall kickoff.

I just measured my original unpainted Bolink 962, Bolink Part #2337.

Width 230mm
Length 440 mm
Wheel base, Associated 10L2 265MM.

I think it's just a repopped Bolink 962. Can you say "CLONE" I bought a bunch of Bolink bodies back when they closed down. Before they became RJ Speed. I just went through my stock and cataloged my GTP 235 bodies, I have 24. OMG!!! Haven't done the box with the Nascar bodies yet.

I don't understand their reference to HPI super nitro.....

I asked Team Blue Groove for confirmation of width.

For those who run the Asso 10R5.1...Check link---> http://www.redrc.net/2014/08/trr-rac...onversion-kit/
235 conversion for this car.
Looks good and from what i can read they are planning a new chassis also with V-link rear pod.
Awesome news for the Associated drivers who are looking for a good kit for there 200MM car.

Regards Roy

Sounds about right, hopefully TBG gets back to you. The current RJSpeed Porsche 962 #1052 is 200mm wide, so RJSpeed must have changed the width of the body to fit their 200mm wide pan car kits they sell...

Very nice looking conversion, add a v link rear setup and wow...
The European Pro10 market keeps getting better. It's great to see the small end of the market do what most of the large corporations won't. Between the new 235mm kits offered from SpeedMerchant and Corally, the numerous 235mm conversions offered, and the home brewed prototypes out there it's hard to complain about lack of selection!

Email from Team Blue Groove...confirms width at 230mm. I was going to order one but after going through my"stash" I found I already have two. Oh yeah sold my 10R5 last winter because I couldn't get a 235 conversion.

Nice work confirming the width of the TBG 962 body! That sucks about the 10R5... I agree you can always buy another one! After seeing that conversion kit it makes me want to buy one.

I ran the Exceed mediums tonight and they are money. The RK10 is just plain awesome with just about any set of shoes.

Really considering a Pro10.

What do you guys think of the Speedmerchant Roadkill 10 vs CRC GenX 10SE with 235mm conversion kit?

I already have a CRC Carpet knife I'm happy with.. so I'm just a bit partial to CRC but am open to other options.
