An achievement? The narrow Pro10 is pretty much the fastest thing on my local club's carpet! 12th scale might have an even better chance, but the surface is slightly bumpy, and the bigger pan car deals with it better. The fact that I don't have a huge lead is only because I'm such a terrible driver!

TCs with rubber tires have no chance, no matter what kind of motor they have.

Neither, those are an LM body type which is different class and those bodies only fit 200mm cars (WGT chassis). Some tracks might allow you run that body with the WGT-R but you would have to ask. I don't think IIC will allow that body.

PRO 10 is a 235mm chassis and use a GTP type body. i.e. Protoform Swift 235, Peugeot 905b and etc.

They also fit F1 cars. I bought one for my Xray and it fit pretty well but didn't perform any better than the stock body/wings in my opinion. It's a very thick lexan and is probably a little too heavy for racing.

Default Front Axles!???????????

I have finally tracked down all the parts and a roller to build a RC10L2.5
Should I change to inline axles or keep the front offset that came stock on the car. I am setting up the car to run on large high grip carpet tracks , advanced thanks for your opinion.

In-line axles will give you more steering and a little more stability. Typical on high grip carpet you will need to take away some steering. If you will be running on asphalt then yes use in-line axles. You can always try the in-line axles on carpet and see if it works for you.

As edfmaniac mentioned, they're designed for 190mm F1 chassis, with rubber tires. They wouldn't really work well on a 200mm pan car, I'd suspect (a touch too narrow, and the wheel wells would be too big for foam tires).

They're somewhat popular in Italy, and while they don't perform better, they're not too much worse, and they make for more confidently close racing, due to closed wheels vs open wheels.

......
So to be clear, they're 190mm with large wheel wells for rubber tire? The first responder said they were 200mm WGT shells.

Just measured mine. 190mm inside to inside at rear wheel well. Perfect fit for F1 chassis and rubber. The black rimmed P-One tires look sweet under these shells too. But honestly, I think the bodies would be much more well suited for the chassis they were designed to be mounted on. You need to make some mighty crazy looking body mounts to get this thing attached to an F1 properly.

Why not use a 962 body to do a scale clone of a 962? Which also happens to be a favored body in Pro10.

The WRC bodies are designed for their LM16 chassis, which is based off of their F-One chassis. They say that they sell adapters to mount their Pro1/Pro2/Pro3 bodies on other F1 chassis.

If I'm not mistaken, you need their part numbers 03272 (front bumper adapter), 03268 (front bumper), and 02038 (front body posts). I think at the rear, you can use normal body posts?

More details here, seems like the parts depend on which F1 car you have:
