Anyone here successfully convert a p10?
Converted cars are just as fast. Usually just need 2 to 3mm of spacers front and rear to lower the chassis after the tall tires are mounted. The front end will be wider than the 2 dedicated rubber tire chassis, but doesn't really suffer from any body fitting problems. The VBCs have been some of the fastest cars at our local track. On the other hand, the SpeedMerchants have pretty much won all summer at our track.

I raced both the crc se slider and the team associated 10r5. Both cars were competitive. But have to say the new crc car built box stock was clearly a better car. 2 laps faster to be exact. It's way easier to drive and corner speed is the biggest improvement. I'm not in any way a driver for them. Just very pleased with the performance.

Cheers

Honestly, the Ford GT looks great! But, I do have a concern about its suitability for my WGT-R cars.

Specifically, per the photo on the Protoform website, there does not appear to be enough body clearance above the front and rear tires for typical upward suspension travel.

Check it out for yourself.

So, please let the group know if you are successful in making this body work on a WGT-R car. I could be wrong (and hope that I am because the Ford GT looks cool); but, the Protoform photo sure appears to indicate otherwise.

Bill
