Widening Kit on Pantoura, Spare Parts
Here are a couple of photos that show the widening kit (235 mm) installed on the Pantoura. My next session will be with the widened car. I can narrow the front if neccesary. A long pinion and three styles of wide bodies are coming.
The photo with the well worn stilletto body shows how much wider this is than 200 mm. It also shows that I have shortened the leading edge of the side dams about 1 inch from the previous photo to good effect.
The car is holding up very well. Calandra has a good supply of spare Pantoura parts (including the chassis and rear pod bottom plate), that I am receiving in about a week with ground shipping. I have not needed a chassis but did have a small problem with the rear pod. I was able to repair this, but have a new part installed now.

Tire Chunking
I have had a bit of chunking as the tires get a lot of use. I have been using shoo goo to fill the small chunks. It is harder than the foam and quickly wears below the foam surface on the tread. It just holds the foam together.

What do you guys use to repair slight separations and chunks.

Weight Balance
The front to back balance on the Widened cars shows a 3.7 ounce excess in the back. I like this considerably better than an excess in the front. In the narrow trim there was a 1 ounce excess in the front after I lightened it. I can't quite explain this but the rear does have longer hubs and axle. Side to side balance is within .2 ounces. This is very good. Corner weights were good on the narrow car. I assume they are still good.

To repair small seperations and chunks I use CA.
In 12th scale this doesn't work, in 10th scale you'll never notice. I've run with 20% of the rear tires gone, and still had no problems.

To avoid chunking, round off the edges of the rear tires after they're down half way.

I confess. I hit the lottery on at least one Associated Nissan. I'll see when it arrives. I ordered 2. I have bodies and extended pinion in hand now. Will do a short test on Wednesday. I'll note now that the bodies are narrower in the front than the back. About 212 mm on the front. The McAllister Nissan body at stormer that I described previously is a similar size and should fit the wide pan car then. I flared my front fenders on one body with a heat gun to try the car at full width.

Pic is of the Peugeot body with homemade flairs. Side dams came in a separate little envelope. Rear wing cutout needs a little touch up sanding to square the tops.

I thought I would make a new post as I put up some new pictures in my previous post. This Protoform Peugeot 505 B body truly is Stunning when its right in front of you. A picture does not do it justice.

Peugeot 905 B Full size Race Car Wins Lemans Picture
Here is a pic of the Peugeot winning the 1992 24 hours Lemans.

And if you look close you can even see the rear body post

Here is a pic of the rear of my car. There are two clearance ribs molded into the body that just clear my particular orientation of side shocks. The center driver compartment makes a good wiring tunnel.

FYI on my design I have the front suspension spaced apart 100mm (center to center. With this setup that body should fit.

John, try a product call 'speed sew', can be bought at any craft shop here in canada, im sure its the same down in the US. Goes on white, and dries clear, and seems to work very well with foam tires. Ive used it for chunks and seperations, and i love it.

Axle 182 Thanks. I'll try some.


Pro-ten-Holland. My fronts are about 30 mm wide with 100 mm center to center this would give me a 230 mm width. The tires will still stick out. There is only about 212 mm available. Do me a favor and measure the front and rear width from outer edge of the tire to outer edge front and back when you get some time on a car that fits the wide pan bodies well. They all seem to be about 1/2 inch narrower in the front. I have the Associated Nissan in hand now as well.

New photos and link above Also.
John

I little update on our 24 hour Enduro Pantoura
We did some testing Friday and Sat, Setup has been done by Sean Maybell of Team CRC, and WOW the car on the first Run set lap times never seen on this track by any type of chassis.
We are running with a new Hacker C40 custom Brushless motor, with a Quark 80B Speed Controller, testing was done with 3700 GP's, and 3800 IB's.
Little Info on the Track Seattle Indoor Raceway, running lap is set at 310 foot, a fast Mod Sedan, drived by Factory
The track has been set up with all Left Turns But one Right hand 180, and a fast Kink. Running the AE Nissian Body, with the Standard width chassis, Can't chunk a tire on the body if it can't even come close
Sean set the car up FULL KILL for the first session, to much for the Average Advanced Club driver, like me
We will be having a Wed night Test session with a new setup, for us slow drivers h
