The Team Prime shock is great.

This is a really interesting thread. I come from the 1/8 on road side of things but there have been a few people running 200mm pan cars at my track. Started talking to them and found out there are electric pan cars in 235mm that go as fast as 1/8 gas cars but are only two wheel drive. Found this thread and its amazing seeing all the diy specials that you guys churn out. Been doing a little digging and the VIP and RC DEVIL cars caught my attention given they are out of Germany where the crazy fast pan cars run 1/8 tracks which would suite my local 1/8 track very well. Been in contact with Tobias of VIP. A great guy who is a true enthusiast. Am currently finalising an order with him hopefully soon. This is going to be fun...

TRF shock, Associated or any other touring car based shock.

We used to run shocks from Associated but the TRF shocks are very popular to use as a centre shock in Pro10...

Thanks for the recommendation guys. I was wondering if a larger bore shock like a touring car might be better suited than what you can get on the WGT and 1/12 cars but does the extra weight up high affect cg at all? I will be running on high bite carpet and fairly small (90' straight).

Pro10 generally uses TC size centre shocks. Actually it is the other way around since the Pro10 was there before the TC's...
Why would you run a high powered large car as a 235mm Pro10 on such a small carpet track?? That's why we have 12th scale anyway...

I WISH I had a bigger track to run on, lol but I'm thankful I have this nice warm well lit track to go to in the winter months. There are only a couple guys who *dare* run Pro10 so it's tight, but not crowded. It's all about fun

The Centershock is one of the biggest and important setups in Pro10.
Small shocks are lighter but not good in driving. For me not direct enough and have to rebuild it after each run. I use a mixed shock from TRF, 3 Racing, Asso and Yokomo in my Car. Also playing with the total length of the shock.
Also for 200mm Pan Cars i advise a bigger shock.

Harold, thanks for your compliment

regards Tobias

Running TC shocks for the last couple of years now without any problems.
Great tuning part for grip and so on.
Dont use the plastic ring (Piston shaft guide??) in the shock under the lower cap but 2 X rings of Kyosho and then the plastic ring that slipt into the lower cap.
Perfect fit and no leakage at all.
If i am not mistaken it is the way that Jilles builds his shocks

Regards Roy

Being a SpeedMerchant owner, I can tell you this is a quality kit. It will easily handle a 4.5 brushless motor. As far as spares: order a second car. If you run asphalt outdoor, you will probably never hit a board or pipe like we do indoor. The only kit part I have replaced is the 19mm camber link with a titanium unit as the kit part is stainless steel. We are currently running 10.5 and 13.5 boosted. My battery style of choice is the brick pack (square). The chassis is designed to handle regular, shorty and brick formations.
