1/10 235 is building up at my local track.

Tim you have got to get one together and head down.

Everyone is pulling them out of the dust bin to run with 4 cell open motor....just makes it easier as one class and most people have dedicated 1/12 batteries anyway.

The trouble is limited car and bodies as they have gone out of vogue.

Cheers

Jamie

Where did you get your car and who currently makes the 235mm cars?

the great thing about Touring Cars is you can dial them in for even a dirty, bumpy parking lot....but back in the day 1/10 pan cars were the most fun thing to drive, just in my opinion...and that 24 hour enduro car was sure fun to drive! Hey Frank, I hope you have a big stack of Pantouras on the shelf!

but I still love 12th scale and TC's! Theres just too many cool things to run out there....

HEY GUYS! Lets get hardcore and run three classes like offroad used to do! just kiding, well sorta...

I also would like to see this come back....I am now building a car on the F103GT chassis for Porsche Cup. We are getting that going in south Florida because some people do not want to spend over $1000 on a car that requires constant tweaking. That may be awesome for some racers, but I want to RACE, not tweak.

Trying to show my 10 yr old daughter what it takes to keep a TC running made her head spin....in Porsche Cup the only tweaking is whether to run soft inserts in the rear with hard inserts in the front, or to use medium in the front.....hhmmmmm.....simple. Me likey....

mine was bought from http://www.powellracingcomponents.com/. that is just the chassis set with top and bottom pod plates.. everything else is standard pan car hardware from associated or irs or hyperdrive or any of them.. my car is called the PRC max10 and may not even be on his site yet.. my car is currently on loan to john stranahan of the pantoura thread for comparison testing since i won't be able to race for about a month do to an impending move to FLA.. stormer still sells bodies as does vansinvent.com (formerly dahm's) mcalister racing and several other outlets..

here is the last page of his thread, and my car as of last night.. http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=127484&page=53

One of the things that killed 10th GTP was the speed that they were getting on mod. That's one of the major reasons that they removed the class from Nats.

I think that a 4 cell class would be great. just stock and mod though.

That speed is why we tried 4 cell 19t.Anyway I've got a new chassis with the battery slots dished out for an Associated chassis. Some guy in California made the chassis. Also with enought parts to make two wide chassis associated cars. Not sure about the diff axle- I know I've got one. On may own stuff I've got my wide - batteries down the center Protype Bolink car that I won the B main at the Nationals at Minregg.Also have several versions of the Bolink last generation wide (?) and narrow chassis also The last car- a narrow Scorpion.They all ran with the wide foams in the rear.The narrow cars had the HPI TC 190mm body. The wide tires fit underneath the body.
I up for anyone in Florida wanting to race 1/10th pan cars- 13.5 brushless and 4 cells or lipos.Also like to try it at the KRaceway for the club race or state race soming soon.

I still got my 1/10th CRC Pantoura...its been parked for almost a yr now...I just wish I could figure out how to get these cars to work...it would have great traction for about 4-5 laps, and then fade and begin to slide all over the place...so I gave up on them after a while of trying to fix the pblms..but boy are they fun and cheap to run...I'm sure with the right set up it'll work just fine, too.

Note: this is running a tight budget...certainly there are those that would spend $350 on a radio, plus get a $450 HB Cyclone WC edition kit, a $180 ESC w/ $90 motor for $260-70 on ESC/motor, and $180-250 on "big name" charger....which would drive costs us to over $1,500...but its not required, and with the above set up you can have great performance for about $1200...which is what you'll spend racing nitro kits, also....Now, this can all go down to the $900 range is you opt for running Cyclone S or Xray T2R kits, amd cheaper brushed esc/motors...



Pan car costs:

Chassis:.......$150 CRC Pantoura
Radio:..........$160 Airtronics MX-3 DSS Spektrum w/ receiver

Cool thread, just like 1/12 is making a resergence after the class was killed in the late 80's 1/10 pan will likely cycle back to the top again. Interestingly it was the development of the 1/10 scale cars that killed off 1/12 racing, and touring that killed off 1/10 pan car racing. But as with most things in life things go in cycles. We still run lots of oval pan car here local but I still love the days when we ran 1/12 road, those were fun racing days

As for cost 1/10 pan car is not all that cheap to start up, a new top line car(hyperdrive or KSG) is over $300 and foam tires are expensive. Still it is simple and fun, and with brushless and lipo on the scene well heck we could BBQ while racing now
