Imagine all that grip but with brushless(EDITED!) motors, lipos and great reception!

Anyone still running this class?

Nice find! It is awesome how many companies are bringing back the 235mm cars.

We are running pro10 235mm on and off at MARCCA in Madison, WI. Most guys are running SM Roadkill 10s. I run a modified Associated 10L2, but may end up going with something else down the line.

Here is another thread for pro10 in general.Pro 10: 235mm Le Mans Prototype Pan Car Discussion

I still have mine parked on a shelf too. Still has the Superflow Chevy Lumina body as well.... Unfortunately, I don't recall ever dusting mine.

I'm curious about the narrow right side hub. Does that move the motor too far to the right, creating an imbalance? I use as many spacers as I can between the motor and bulkhead on my other 235mm cars, and the rear pod is still heavy on the right side.
