Very good to hear!

I just finished up another top plate for the L2. Will hopefully get it installed and see how it fits tonight. Just got a package today with 5 Tbars , hopefully that's enough extras to make it awhile! Also picked up a few other parts for the L2, should be a good day tomorrow!

Tim's ran. It was a moment of shear awe and amazement as a car that hasn't run in at least 20 years, probably more, turned laps. Even without a body it was pretty cool to see something like that move. And yes it will be competitive.

Awesome to hear, I'm glad Tim will be joining the Pro10 fun! The wifes 10L is the same age chassis, it's really amazing how well the oldies work. Well... the wifes would work better with a proper motor in it, but you know

Open design upper pod plate worked well, just a couple tweaks needed. The next one should be the final hand made draft before having CNC copies made.




The pics below show a couple of the front suspension mods. First pic is the IRS king pins, they make adjusting preload a breeze! Second pic is of the RC12R5 caster clips/spacers. You can see the black clips on the right and the stock white spacers on the left. With the 12R5 caster clips changing caster is a breeze, no more removing the hinge pin.

Default The shape of things to come? A resurgence in Pro10?

Thanks for the compliment!

It really does seem that Pro10 235mm kits and conversions are popping up everywhere. You really have to look for them but they're there. It mostly seems to be small companies and DIY guys that are bringing Pro10 back, which is awesome IMO. A National or World level Pro10 class might get the big name companies producing 235mm cars again? I like what we have anyway, it's really a niche class right now.

liljohn1064 and OrganicMechanic are both right
Left is the stock chassis for stock boosted and or mod(electronics on the left side of the car).
Right chassis will be for raincar because of dead centre weight distribution and shorty so you have more room to put electronics in waterproof box.
The shorty chassis is also good for Pro10 stock blinky as you don't need the big lipo's and you can shift weight to get the best balance in the car.
The right car will hopefully not see much action.
If it is then the weather will be bad
Front end arrived today and will be mounted tomorrow so i can get electronics in and give it it's first run.
The other chassis (when finished) will go to Joost K


Regards Roy

@liljohn- nice I didn't catch the offset.

@pro10noob- looks like a nice pair of chassis' and well thought out plan on the rain car. As always post pics of the finished products.
