Hey Bob.
Are you thinking about racing the pro 10 class ? Just seeing of we can dig up a few more players . I'm working on flights now best prive Is 450.00 . Sure would like it to be cheaper . If I can find flights for around 250.00 round trip its on in PRO 10 . It would be great to see 10-20 of them for a good showing of talent .
PASS THE WORD : PRO 10

Maybe I need to invite Mr. Stormer to come join in the fun .........
If you can get a group going, then the class does well at the HoA series, that along with the group in CA could be the ticket to get some movement in getting Pro10 235 back on the scene nationally here in the states, pair that with the runners in Europe and we could have the beginnings of something that could bring Pro10 back to the worlds, even if its an exhibition event the first couple times

That would be even better! Keep scouting people there in the states

But I've run 235 on foams since the 80's and have done sauce and then sun tan lotion. I've get my tires pretty set and the last time I ran this, I was running a Tekin in Dual mode to keep the heat down. Car likes to be a little over geared to keep the back from coming around with that much power.

Now if I had not sold 30 plus bodies back a year or two ....... JK kept the ones that I really like. May have to back pour and pull a few if this gets some traction.

I'll find a picture of the track - was site of the ROAR On Road Nitro Nationals in 2010

Here in the US . We don't have a great selection . Its the protoform body or you have to pay thru the nose for some from Europe . I bought some and the shipping was as much per body as the cost of the body itself .I seem to run the protoform body most of the time . I have run the mercedes body . It has a lot of steering but lacks the same for rear bite . The nissan is another good steering body but again alittle soft on rear bite . The Peugeot has overall good bite . Not too much rear or front . Pretty neutral body. I would love to see something fresh but with no 235 class it will be difficult to get any done . I have a blank PSE mazda from 92 worlds but cant get more . Been kicking the idea of backpouring and putting those out there . The mazda is alittle short but great overall downforce . Anyone have anything else besides BOLINK 962, PSE MAZDA , TOJ , MERCEDES AND ANDYS NISSAN .
Just lookin around . Used to be more but ive been using them up for years .

My favorite with 10.5 2s has been the Hot Bodies Nissan, then the medium down force PewJoe. LOL.

There's the McAllister Jaguar, Toyota, and Nissan. But I have no information about their aerodynamics.

What I would like to see is a wing that would be appropriate for the TOJ and others.

Nissan P35 from Corally has overall nice downforce but not to much.
If you need more rear bite, use a gurney that is profided at the back of the uncut body.
Peugeot 905HD had a bit more all around.
The Mercedes C11 has a lot of steer but with a gurney at the back is it is a nice body.
The new HMS body has a lot of downforce all round but haven't see it state side.

Regards Roy

Hello all,
I have been working on getting a couple of "vintage" RC10Ls up and running to try out Pro10. I am wondering: what are the choices for a modern alternative? All I can find is WGT cars. I looked at the CRC conversion and it looks a little hokey. Does anyone make or market a Pro10 car in the US?
Thanks!

Maybe you could check the corally usa site. The 10SL is a great car and is also availeble in 235mm as a kit. And easy to convert to 200mm WGT.

I bought an uncut HPI Jaguar XJR several months ago on ebay and 2 weeks ago I bought an uncut Associated '92 Nissan GTP. I already asked around to get them reproduced but it is kind of difficult. The bodies look realy good.

Have you contacted Delta Plastik? Italy isnt that far away compared so some other places that will copy stuff.

Hi,

I didn't contact delta plastic but last year I did contact Kamtec in the UK.

At first they responded quick to my questions about the proces. After several emails I send a Peugeot MD to them to reproduce 30+ bodies. After that, contact got quiet and they didn't respond to my emails except once where they said it will take some time (not specifying a date) and that they didn't receive my other emails. Which is strange as I wrote them to the same adres. I replied them but again didn't get an email back. Not getting any responds to my emails is getting a frustrating experience and it is already more than a year.

If someone from the UK knows the guy from Kamtec, could you ask him how it is going with the Peugeot Medium Downforce that I send him last year?

Contacting delta plastic and maybe shipping an out of production body to Italie with the cost involved and maybe other frustrations is not on my list at the moment.

I also contacted Teambluegroove for reproducing the jaguar. He said he already had the jaguar in his own inventory. He couldn't say when he was going to reproduce it. (which is maybe a nice way of saying no lol)
