Ah...but you'd love to try!

Big carpet track with no issues whatsoever. Easy to drive and never stepped out of line.

Head east a pinch and give it a go...

How big is your track? I was able to get mine to do 8.9 with 2s 17.5 while 12th was doing 9.3-9.5.

If I hit the lottery tonight, I will have a track similar to the one in the video listed on p121.

I would say about 110'x80'

That about right liljohn1064?

Yep, 6 rolls deep, 100 feet + 1 roll wide.

We need to rig up a camera and record the fun.

Our outdoor asphalt track is approx 80'x120' and we were running in the 13s with 2S 17.5 blinky last summer.

Back in the day, if you raced 1/12th, you ran an Associated TOJ. Yeah the guys running Parma or Bolink used other bodies, but they were knock-offs of the TOJ. When Pro10 first came around several companies made 1/10th scale versions of the TOJ. But Pro10s are different and the TOJ was not as good as it was in 1/12th. Bob Stormer wanted to make a body that would be usable for Pro10, so he did a TOJ, but he mads the long tail version and left off the rear kick-up. Unfortunately there are no appropriate sized wings available to use with this body. A shame, because moving the wing around is a good tuning tool and I suspect this body might work quite well and be more adjustable than the regular bodies.

Thanks Lonny, I knew none of that.

Still might pinch for a couple for nostalgia's sake.

Still plodding along on my pro10 desing/build.
Decided to eliminate the panhard rod for space reasons and replace it with this




It's called a sliding pin, but I am using a bearing to roll in the slot instead of sliding, pin half gets fixed to the chassis and slider to the pod, allows for droop adjustment and gives more room to move shocks in and out to adjust roll stiffness on the rear.

Looking to build up a Pro10 car and start to get some interest happening with my local club.

Picked up a donor XRAY X10 and ordered a Lajf Racing conversion kit. I'm in Canada and I ordered it last Thursday night and it got here today, FROM SWEDEN
! Bloody awesome!

I'll post pics once I get it put together.

So what options are out there for a centre shock kit? Something other than the stock XRAY or CRC ones.
