Very cool. As silly as it may sound, I miss racing on 2x4 parking lot tracks.

That corner is rough! Any chance they fix that at some point or is it cost prohibitive

It's fun just running on pavement, even if it's a parking lot so I get it.

The track is setup and broken down every race day. I missed last Sundays race day, but they did set it up in a different spot on the parking lot.

Yep, we moved the lot over one complete section and experienced 0 water problems this time. It was some great racing with GT and LM1 swapping the overall lead for most of the race. Thanks for posting that video as well.

Default Adapters for 10th scale TC nitro wheels to WGT/Pro10

Not sure if this is known, there's a guy/company in Germany called C.Andy's who makes and sells adapters to fit 10th scale TC nitro wheels on WGT/Pro10 cars, for both front and rear wheels. Unfortunately the website is in German only. And I can't post URLs because I don't have sufficient posts. If you type the following in your favorite search engine the first hit will take you to the announcement on RedRC back in 2011:
"redrc c.andy's pan car wheel adapter"

The front wheel adapters are made from some type of plastic and should be pretty affordable. The rear wheel adapters are milled aluminum parts, probably a bit more expensive. I bought a pair of both front and rear a while ago when I was in Germany but haven't had a chance to use them (don't own a WGT/Pro10 right now). I don't remember the exact cost, but I can give him a call and ask, if there were interest in this.

I know the goal for this class is to eventually go to rubber tires, so this would seem as just another solution for foam tires (albeit with nitro wheels and these are quite cheap, less than 20$ for a set of 4 wheels).

I'm not familiar with the hex sizes of 10th scale TC nitro wheels and 10th scale electric TC wheels, but if they are the same then these adapters could possibly be used to fit 10th scale electric TC wheels with rubber tires onto WGT/Pro10 cars. That would be your rubber tire solution for people wanting to join in the class with those cars. No idea if those wheels will fit under the bodies discussed here, but that's for you to find out

I attached an image of my adapters where you can also see the rear ones.

I'll be at the 2014 Halloween Classics at NORCAR this year, I can bring these along for anyone to try them out on a WGT car. I won't sell them though :-)

Thanks for the link, Roy.

Are these the front hubs for running 1/10th scale (12mm hex) TC tires on the front?

If you use Google Chrome as your browser, it does offer a translation function. I was able to translate the info on the site and respond in German with questions. I'll post here when I find out more, such as can they be ordered directly or do we have to go through a distributor, and whether or not they ship internationally.

HPI slicks are almost the same diameter and would work on those 12mm hexes.

What about the current owner of IRS? Maybe he might make some full outer hubs for us?

According to the rule book, you have to separate the rear wing, right?

For an event, yes. At club level, it's up to the club.

I honestly couldn't tell you where most of those bodies are to be found. Here's one not on the list, still no idea where to get it...
