Thanks VTL1108!! Need to replace my rear axle for my 1/10 SpeedSpec pan car. Can anyone please let me know where can I get new ones? There are some at the CRC site, but they dont specify if they are for 1/12 or 1/10, which tells me it could be that they are both the same length(10 and 12 scale use the same size axle), but I am not sure. here is the website link. Please have a look...http://teamcrc.com/crc/modules.php?n...category_id=26

I sent you a Private Message. You will have to e-mail John at Calandra, or Dave Irrgang at IRS to make sure it's the right axle before you order. I know this kit IRS 2133 will fit because I installed it on my Pantoura. Here is the note from Dave at IRS. The BL just indicates a blue color to the hubs.


"I spoke with CRC and they say the car should use our IRS2133BL non offset axle kit. Let me know if it OK to send this axle set."

http://www.teamirsrc.com/axles.html ( [email protected] Dave at IRS)

[email protected] for John at CRC

Now the trouble is they don't really list the axle separately nor do they describe the separate axles well, but I am sure that it is available separately. Just give him an e-mail on Moday. You will get a quick reply.

I suspect that 1/12 axles will be too short from different wheel offsets., but would have to see them side by side to know for sure. If unsure it is probably a 1/12 axle which is more prevalent.

Thanks John. Sent emails to John at CRC and awaiting replies...good luck with the project! A friend of mine from Venezuela is working on making 1/10 pan car rear axles from duralumin and titanium. Will update when they are completed and post some pics.

My personal opinion is that an Aluminum axle would be too weak to survive some crashes. Titanium has some hope as it is tough and springy. Probably needs to be hollow from a weight standpoint. I think that hollow hardened steel axle would be ideal from a durability standpoint.

The graphite axles have very low rotational inertia. This makes the car faster. The lightened hubs also make the car faster.

I have thought up a wide body conversion for my car. It will not be too difficult. It will depend on whether I can get a hold of a body. My hobby shop has one old body that may fit.

For wide body's have a look at the Hot Bodies Toyota and Protoform Peugeot at Stormer, and the Associated Nissan (Part 6128) at Tower Hobbies.

Thanks guys. Really nice looking. Thanks for the really nice pics.


I had trouble finding a hit on the Associated Nissan. The Peugeot is out of stock at present.

Wait a miute guys! The HPI toyota is not a pancar body, it's for the superscale sedan. You might be able to fit it, but it's not intended for 10th pancar racing.
If you've ordered the Proceed body, it's 1/8th Nitro scale! That won't fit!
The 6128 has been discontinued by Tower. Bummer.
This is the only wide body they have on their website now:
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...p?&I=LX2702&P=
Not quite the best....
Here's the peugeot at stormer:
https://www.ssl-stormerhobbies.com/c...s&pn=PFM140722
and the GT1 Toyota:
https://www.ssl-stormerhobbies.com/c...ns&pn=HOT10203

If you're in need, I can ship you some bodies from here.

Default Toyota GT-1 Body

This is my Toyota GT-1 Body on my 10L2

Pro-Ten is right the pictures I post were of the Superscale sedan GT-1 body. I was just giving you an idea of the shape of the body since Stormer doesn't have a picture on the web site.

Hey Guys, didnt see this thread. Personally ive found that if i totally leave my std 10L2 setup totally alone (apart from a few tweaks ill outline here) its totally dialed, and quicker than alot of tourers (mods). Mine is a new 10L2, with a 4.5r brushless in it (going to get the sintered rotors after ready this!) and the absolutely critical part of the setup is the tires. I havent changed anything else, everything is as per kit, and its one seriously fast kit. On carpet im running some ridiculously soft tires, not sure what brand as a friend gave them to me (pink rims, kinda like parmas i think?) and green fronts (actually any front i have available!) I also totally lock the rear diff, and run 96t spur and 11th pinion. Its a tight carpet track.

I recently tried the car on a big outdoor asphalt track. weather was mild, it was prepped with sugar water, and no tire prep. I ran purple fronts and white rears, and the car was totally dialled from the moment i put it on the track (apart from a little steering adjustment on the transmitter - dual rate). It was seriously fast, and thats with the 96/11 ratio lol. I expected the motor to peak early on the straight, but it just kept revving so i left it. The torque was phenominal, and i was driving it like a touring car, hard on the gas, but soft on the brakes, if i used them at all.

Only other things i check is balance and tweak, and adjust ride height of the pod so its level with the main pan. apart from that, just tires and its crazy fast.

Mind you, this is using a pan car body also, on the carpet i used the Peugeot 905B, and on the asphalt i used a HPI Toyota which flew. Ill be taking some more pics of the car when i can. And redline, i found some old parma chrome rims at a LHS the other day.... bling bling
