The wheels seem to be for 1/10 pancars but ask him what diameter and width the wheels are and ask for a picture of the backwheels to see the 4 screw holes, just to be sure. I personally have never seen those front wheels but maybe someone else did

Without knowing what type and shore foam is on the wheels and if the foam is very old or not it is difficult to say if it is of any use except re-using the rims to glue new foam donuts on in the worst case.

That seems too soft. The side walls will probably flex a lot in corners.

Another thing is 22 - 24 shore only describes how soft they are but not how much natural rubber is in there. If it's low % of natural rubber it will have less traction than with higher natural rubber content. For outdoor use and normal conditions you want tires with higher % of natural rubber such as pinks, magenta's double pink, purple etc.

These are indeed old Ellegi Pro10 tires from Italy. The original wheels were light red colour but they made also black versions for LRP. These tires were not that bad back in the days but these are now at least 15 years old.

That shore range was typical that time there had been even 28sh front from Ellegi. I donīt know exactly what rubber it is but nothing of the yellow/green/blue. It is more something as Japanese rubber but was slightly different than Enneti or Jaco.
The wheels were quite strong and didnīt break in a crash.
If these tires are cheap and you want use just for fun they could work as long as you keep with a slow motor. Using any fast brushless motor you really should go with modern rubber as 2wdrive says.

thanks for the info!

A video of a social race this past weekend in Santa Oliva, Tarragona. The track has medium grip, we're not as fast as in other tracks, but we are improving ...

thanks for posting the vid. Always nice to see a race. Quite a big track as well which is nice to drive even with medium traction.

Last weekend we had our last national pro10 race. Only 6 drivers attended which is kind of a bummer. It was on a technical track with high concrete curbs and low traction due to dust blowing over from a dirtbike circuit. It was strenuous to drive with the low traction (no speed to get downforce ) together with the high curbs. Hitting a curb would mean the car was launched with possibility hitting more curbs or cars hitting you when you were flung on other parts of the track. The fact that the circuit was newly added this year and not many had any experience on it didn't make it easier. All in all i was still pleased with 2nd place plus was happy I didn't hit too many curbs as it could have been a lot worse with broken parts. . (only broke one A-arm)

The V-link setup really showed it's merrit on dusty/low grip circuits.

It is a rc devil pro10 with prototype esc from Atos with a 7t delta lehner motor. It runs sensorless with adaptive timing with 4s lipo. You have to run at least 37 shore tires otherwise the tires will be chunk easy because of the force. motor and esc temperature are around 50-60C. Speeds can reach 120km/h easy while retaining low operating temperatures.


They have a prototype esc for the 1/8 onroad as well which runs on 6s lipo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JUKRJ5mMdU

There is a topic about it here Will there ever be a 1/8th scale Electric onroad car

I was wondering how is it even possible with a smaller motor to achieve this kind of speed

Default CRC Steering Tie Rod

If at all possible, could someone please measure and tell me the steering tie rod length that is supplied with the CRC 235mm conversion kit. I lost the orginals, and am looking to track down some replacements from Lundsford.

Thank you.

I can't help you with the length but maybe measuring the total length from ball end on the spindle to ball end on the servo saver will get you a guestamisation? Substract the lenght of the ballcups and add a few mm marging to set toe out and in will get you in the right direction.

That is the way I do it to find suitable turnbuckles.

If you have the ones for the 200mm car, measure them and add 17mm to it. Should be close.
