MIght need some help from the boys like MarkA and Boomer from the 10th pan thread over in the Oval and Larger Scales section to be able to root out any more pockets of racers. I think that working with anyone that runs the WGT class would help also

Unfortunately MarkA no longer runs Pro 10 since he lives in Oregon and there is no on-road track there. Boomer...have no idea what's he up to. And I am now running 1/12 scale but would LOVE to get back my Yokomo YRX-2000P I sold, but the person will not sell it I will pass the word to the people who do run WGT at my track about the race.

Hmm yeah it is important to get some help. But if you have maybe like 6people to get a heat running in clubraces or so then more and more people would see it. Maybe that helps also.
I drove tc stock class noe for 2years but I return to the pro10 guys. More relaxation!! Just keep the rules some more open like we have here. 10.5 turn boosted. Very nice speeds!

Heard about that one. I am more thinking of getting guys like MarkA (now up in OR I believe), Boomer, thirdplace and some of the guys who were part of the last attempt to get Pro10 235 on the schedule in 2004 and ran down at the old SoCal track

Most of the SoCal Pro 10 group is no longer racing, see my above post. I was part of that group and now I am racing 1/12 scale and looking to get a Pro 10. I would prefer to have a "True Pro 10" and not a conversion

You'd probably have to hit up Ebay Toadyy (I remember MarkA often posting links to auctions for chassis) although getting spares would be a challenge and probably would mean either machining thrm yourself or having a friend with access to that kind of stuff...if you didn't get the Corally that spacendeman mentioned

This is the Mark A I was thinking of? and there is a good number of us in Camarillo that have been racing "Pro 10" cars for many years. I started racing in 1979 with the Ventura Roadrunners.

Here is a pic of the SoCal Pro 10 group circa 2002 at Revelation Raceway.

L to R = Mark Anton (MarkA), Colin Crenshaw, Kevin Kubota, Jeff, Mike (Boomer), Ron Core, Richard (Thirdplace), Caesar, Todd Skelton (Toadyy) and Erik Rodriguez. The 3 TC guys I have no idea.
