We had 5 racers out last night for Pro10. 4 10L3Ts and a 10L2. 2 ran the protoform 911 GT1 body, I ran the HPI NSX, another ran the DNA1 body and the 10L2 ran the AE Nissan GTP.

During qualifying everyone ran 19 turn 6 cell while I ran 13.5 6 cell. One racer switched to stock for the main.

I had some issues with my receiver (spektrum) shutting down all night except in the main. In the first qualifier it shut down at the very end of the straight while I was flat out. Lost all steering and brakes so went straight into the wall at full tilt. Batteries and steering servo ejected themselves from the car, otherwise no damage. If I had of done that with a TC I would still be picking the pieces up.

I meant to get video but only remembered halfway through the main so missed out.

I have taken it out there and the car was amazing. There is nothing like throwing in as much power as you have available and having it so easy to drive. The track was really smoothe and high bite. I am confident now that our new layout is exactly what i was looking for in any layout or track condition. We compared the 3 cars with all 3 layouts and the latest production layout was hands down the fastest and most consistant car. This car is going to be an out of the box winner. No waiting 6 months for a a magical setup from a pro. The box setup was amazing. If it does get any better than it will not be fair.

pro10s must be awesome for speed runs. A few years ago, they stuck in like a 12 cell or something, and this thing went over 100 mph. It must be fairly easy to get those speeds, for fun, if it can fit.

Same as a 1/12th car. Mini Servo and a Medium or Small Kimbrough servo saver.

Unhappy Why the high Chassis prices?

Quick question, back in the day the originals ran a price of 120-160 (RC10L/L2). Why are some retailers offering the new "Pro 10" chassis at around 320 dollars (corally from stormer). For that price might as well stick with TC for the time. I was hoping to get in the new class at around the same price as in the 80's-90's up to maybe 220. I still have my old chassis, but I was hoping and looking for a class where I can afford my son and I to run in. I will wait and see as more become available.

Just wondering!

First, back in the day WAS back in the day. Everything does, or should, cost more now-a-days.
Second, while I admit they are pricey (at least the initial release), those 120-160 cars were more likely fiberglass chassis plate cars and not carbon fiber.
And finally, they were also just an exploded 1/2th car - not a total redesign - while a lot of these new ones are totally re-engineered from the ground up. And if you think you can get into a top-flite TC for 300 bucks you're shopping somewhere I'm not aware of.

Mini servo - yes.
But I think they need to/should run a hi-torque model.........no?

dude, you cant be serious comparing the 80's to now. Give me a break, if you think $300 for an all graphite, and top model car is too expensive, yet a more confusing, yet slower TC which is $500+ you must be on crack. theres not car in rc thats $120-$160 unless its a mini RTR.
