Yeah, the gentleman who built it, put some coins down.Built behind the Tesla Motors plant. I think its the perfect size for a 235 with some ponies.

I believe that they were 1mm carbon. Looks great en stiffens up the rear a bit also.

I'd like to get my 235 out there. I just got a new set of rear foams in the mail today. Can you give me any specifics on location and contacts.

Correct. It's gonna be awhile until you can access the track. Only open on certain weekends. Also this was a 1/5 scale specific track. The Rams club is going to open up to electric this season. Be patient.

Ordered my RK10 today. Can't wait to get it on the road. I'm sure I'll be checking in once the build starts. Thinking BSR pink or xx pink rear and purple front to start.
I ordered the 4-40 plastic ball cups but what length steering tie rods are needed?Also, does this kit use standard or metric hardware? If standard, what size hex drivers will I need to build the kit? Thanks.

BTW, guys. Warm Springs Raceway will have Pole Position RC run their races twice a month. It was announced this morning so get your Pro10 235s ready!

What is the consensus? 1s or 2s? What wind motor? What tires to start with for prepped, smooth, unsealed asphalt? I want to build one asap.

My RK10 should ship in the next day or two. I'm planning on 2s and 10.5T but I can be persuaded to 17.5T if we can make a class

A few pages back we were warned about a 10.5 1S WGT spec tire class for indoor. Might want to try to get that going. Believe me, 10.5 on the top end is still very fast indoor.

That would be awesome if I could ru. My 5th scale and my pro10!

10.5 2s runs great at greater la, hope that's what we can run at Rams since it's a big track too
