I have not seen a 235 kit for the 10r5. The only bolt on kit I have seen is for the genX10.

That is indeed the only option to make a stock 10R5 to 235mm. width. If you have the ability to make parts yourself you could make a new rearpod and front mounting plate to Pro10 specs. The chassis itself is still 4cell/1s so you should also modify the chassis.

I just took all the R5 hardware, an IRS wide rear axle en a sheet of carbon fibre. Together with a CNC milling machine and AutoCAD you can make nice things...

That is also the most expensive option... If you want to keep it simple and you don't mind having red parts on your car, go with the CRC & Full Option set.

The only thing left then is that you will have a link car instead of a T-plate car. IMHO a Pro10 should have a T-plate but that is just MY opinion. Link will work just as good...

These CRC hub extensions are the worst option you could use for widening the rear. OK if you´re running those slow motors while 1S Lipo it could work but I have seen everybody here running into problems with 2S Lipo.
Making a wide pod as Joost wrote already is the only real option.

Well, the system itself stays in one piece. Last year I've seen several CRC's go really well with 2s and 4.5 brushless. In my opinion it just isn't the nicest looking solution for making it 235mm. Again, in my opinion, CRC could have better make a wide pod and axle to solve this problem.

Although it stays in one piece I would always go for a wide pod with matching hubs instead of two piece hubs...

It's just the thought of four more screws on te hubs that will add extra rotating mass on the rear axle.

What i read somewhere else is that you can make the back 230mm by using the wide IRS axle and left and right long hubs. I saw pictures somewhere as well. It is very straight forward. It is not 235mm but it is close when shimmed correctly. Then you don't need those crc hub extensions.

is there anyone/company that can make custom chassis for 10R5, 2S lipo set-up, something similar to the new Xray Link car? Best will be for pro10 version, front width of 210-220mm without the need of using the front arm mount plate.
As for the rear, we can just use the CRC extension or IRS wide axle for 230mm width.
If anyone can do it, let me know the price. I am searching high and low for it. Thanks!

The Corvette feels more stable to me while the Sophia is dartier and more aggressive. In Vegas I liked the dartiness of the Sophia, but at home I usually prefer the Vette since we have significantly lower traction. I liken the Vette to a limo and the Sophia to a 90's 911 Porsche.

Thumbs up 10R5

I just picked up an Associated 10R5 to race on the asphalt this summer. We spray the track with sugar water so traction is good. I was looking for a setup, we have to run WGT spec tires. I will be using 4 cell 4600 13.5 motor. The track is about 90' X150' and fairly wide open. Thanks.

Just run it box stock with a blue center spring. That seemed to work for me on asphalt.
