-price friendly
-easy to figure out what each parameter does and it is vissible on the track or temperature wise.
-good communications with a hobbywing representative here on rc tech.

In fact in the pro10 class at my club many have switched to Hobbywing just for the above mentioned reason. See statement above

It is the same for the 1/12 class that is being driven in the winter overehere. There are many that use the hobbywing 1s 120A esc with build in voltage booster.

For outdoor applications I would advice always to buy the biggest esc you can get for you money. The 120A v2.1 instead of the 60A v2.1 for instance. For me the extra capacity translates in less heat in 10.5t applications and better fett life and power delivery.. The cooler the electronics the better and it is always possible to stick a mod motor in if you feel like going even faster. The price diverence is not that shocking.

i've bent something in the rear axle assembly after a crash and am thinking of replacing the stock crc axle and extended hubs with a 235mm irs axle kit. will i have issues trying to mount this to the stock gen x 10 pod? main concern is that the clamping hub appears to be about 10mm shorter than the extended crc hub. can i shim this out?

The CRC rearpod is too narrow to fit the IRS2135 wide rear axle which you will be needing to make a 235mm wide car.

An option is to make a new lower- and upper-pod plate to make the rearpod wider so the 2135 axle fits. There is no other option than that I'm afraid...

you don't know anywhere that sells modified pods by chance?? unfortunately i'm not really set up for machining carbon fibre chassis'. i'm starting to think i'd be better off buying a proper 235mm car. what would you recommend? corally 10sl?

If you want a NEW kit and kit-ready 235mm, the Corally is the only way to go. All the rest are 200mm kits. You could also look on Ebay for a RC10L2, that is the best kit-ready 235mm car but harder to find every day...

A couple of guys are currently working on a new wide pod for the CRC, one of them posts here too. His name is Kees (westy1969, page 18). Maybe you can contact him and ask how far they are with the rearpod...

The car ROCKS!!!

Alexander (2wd) drives it and it is one of the fastest and most stable cars in our Pro10 battlefield. It simply has all the stuff that works. Offcoarse, there are some option parts that you can fit on the car but the basic layout of the car is GOOD!!!!

Been driving my Academy Pro10 235MM car today and i must say that without having much running time with these cars(normally drive TC and Tamiya F1) it was a blast.
Laughed my ass off at the speed this car is doing and even without the proper tires i could do some nice laps in my opinion.
Joost our Pro10 house designer is going to make me some parts to get it in even better shape
Enough said.
Here are some pic's of the car

regards Roy
