I was running my 10l3t with the TC's last year with a stock motor in 19t on a very tight track. I could not give the car full throttle, I could blip it as soon as I got on the straight but would have to let off. You can pretty much turn inside of the TC's also. Good thing is it looks like Tamiya is going to try and bring back direct drive cars.

rubber for the win :P. besides when the tires wear down to slicks they get faster.

is there a bolt on top plate replacement for the L2 so i can rig up some damper tube/side shocks?

I know you can do it, I haven't done it to my L2 but if you check the pan car thread a few have switched their cars over to a tri shock setup.

It would be nice to see some nice wide low profile rubber tires that would fit a pan car for those days you just want to screw around and not risk chunking your foams.

Contact PRC ( www.powellracingcomponents.com ), I got the tri-shock shock setup on my L2 .. ( Its now an L2.5 ), it handles better but now I am tempted to change that setup to Damper tubes and try it out that way.

Thanks for all the help guys. I have been away for a week on a course and have only just had a look to see if anyone had replied. I think that I will see if anythng goes onto ebay, a Switchblade 10 looks pretty nice if one comes along. Was that chassis made before or after the Evolution 10? I can remember that Evo10 because it had all the cells down the middle whereas all the others at the time had them in a saddle pack config. Thanks again and feel free to PM me if you have any news about Pro10ing! Cheers, Chris.

Exclamation

10 PAN ROCKS !!!!!!!

Man you guys pretty well covered all the bases in a few short posts. 10 pan is making a come back in Edmonton Alberta Canada. We run 4 to 9 cars just about every week. Several TC guys have switched. We run 6 cell Mod , like he said "CRAZY FAST", little maitenance and few repairs. We were at a race in Regina Saskatchewan last weekend, I think there 11 1/10 pan.

New Racer... I had Doug make me a chassis like yours for my Pantoura. As well as wanting to try it, its looks "SSSOOO KOOL"I have only had it out once on carpet. Do you have a set up for carpet and also asphalt. Thanks!!!!

WINGMAN 2 Check on Oval and larger scale, under 1/10 pan A few posts back "TOADY' has a SB10 for sale, I just bought some bodies from him.
The EV10 is older than the SB10. I still use use my EV 10 once in a while. I like the "No stinken battery tape, No stinken T bar" idea !!!!!!!

Thumbs up

TEM, search, edmontonrc.com click on NASCAR logo to enter. Unfortunately the picture does show all the track!!!!! It 48' X 90' ozite carpet. We race in an old WW2 hanger on friday nights......Set up and tear down every week. We have a permanent asphalt track that we race on in the summer.

Good luck,
Terry
