Other than the Protoform 235 bodies...who's using what for a Pro10 - 235mm class (and on what surface type)?

I have the old ANDY's TOJ bodies, but I've only got one NIP one left..and looking for options that will give similar handling.

I know STORMER HOBBIES came out w/ some new bodies a couple years ago - the Osella and the TOJ sc306, I thought they had a 3rd one, but I haven't found it again.

(He had some of the ANDY's bodies too - but I doubt he'll let loose of those)

Joe,

Not sure how they handle, but McAllister still sells Nissan GTP and Jaguar GTP/Group C bodies. Dale Epp was asking for input on 235mm bodies recently as well.

Note to Dale!

Something with more down force for people who want to use less weight in the car or running 1s packs(US)would be nice. Also a way to incorporate the appendage type lip on the front of the Peugeot body into the design of the front end while keeping the steering it provides would be nice.

Hello guys. Need some advise on side shock, spring. I am trying to convert my normal "small side spring" link car to 3 shocks setup. With 3 trf shocks. Would would be a good starting point running 2s 4.5T outdoor? For side spring and center spring, and oil / piston? Thank you in advance!

I wouldn't take the bigger TRF shocks as side shocks. Simply because they are too big.
Better take two Silva shocks or two CRC encore shocks.
You have a wider range in springs.

Which spring and oil you should use depends on the track, the grip etc.

I'm picking up the sm car. I honestly don't want to shuffle through all of the pages. What tires work best for carpet and what roll out would you start at for a 100x48 track. Thanks in advance

What size motor, battery type, boost or no boost? It's the only way to calculate the needed rollout.

I run Xceed carpet medium front and rear with the Protoform HD P905b body. My car doesn't lift in the corners. BSR purple fronts and Pink or Pearl White rears rears work great also.

Try a 60mm Rollout and check temps @ 2 min. You should be within 4 or 5 pinion teeth up or down for 64p and one or two teeth for 48p.

Thank you for your advise! Really hard to get the CRC shocks in HK...... I will be running 4.5 boosted at an outdoor nitro track. Around 100m straight. So It will be a large track.

You could also use the 12R5 shocks as we did in the past
Works also great and same springs as encore or silva.
Start with Tamiya yellow centre and asso blue on the side
40WT centre oil and 15 or 20 at the side.
