If the wide cars weren't faster than the narrow cars the wide cars were underpowered. We did that road course experiment way back when the first Narrow Oval cars were released, The Wide Car ALWAYS carried more corner speed, while the Narrow car had a slight advantage down the straight. Solution: Strap more RIP in the Wide car. You could run WAY more pull in the wide car and still put it down. This was on carpet with virtually limitless grip.
On asphalt the pendulum swings even more towards the wide cars.


I think you guys just outdrove your competiton.

on carpet in the corners the cars were difenatly better planted but when we were in a straight line we were faster but we did have the cars dialed in and were cutting the same lap times as the wide cars.
on the asphalt on fast and free flowing tracks like we raced on the narrow cars where as fast . like i said jhon malin and i were fast enough to win the last two known races here in fl at a state series event!
look i am not saying one is better then the other i am just stating dont underestimate a narrow pancar!
as far as your oval car testing it all depends on what type of track it is short or high speed!

Speedlx you and John did not race in the last race for 1/10th pan cars period in the state series.The last race was held at Edgewater at Mike Beans track.The race at Superior was when Eddie was alive at and at a different parking lot- across from the present track at Superior. Get the facts straight.

nice to see the interest in 1/10 pan car again!i have been reading the posts and thought i would throw my 2 cents in. as for 4 or 6 cell-its a no brainer-go with 6. 4 cell defeats the purpose of a 1/10 pan car. if people dont want to go that fast then stick with your slowdans. i run 4 cells in my 1/12 on an indoor carpet track. i also have a 10L3T that i play around with outside. with 6 cells and even a mild mod motor that car is insane. and thats what i love about it. 1/10 pan car + 4 cells= weeny boy

No LHS that I know of carries the YRX-2000P. You should contact Yokomo USA directly or have SoCal order you one.

I haven't messed around with a pan car since the early 90's.

You can get the Hot Bodies Toyota and Protoform's Peugeot 905B.
I know SoCal has the Hot Bodies in stock right now.

Default Custom Corally C10/x

Here are some pictures off my good friend Ronald's version of the C10/x conversion to T-bar with damper tubes. He machined some aluminium damper tubes, aluminium rear pod parts, a carbon T-bar (2mm) and a carbon "horseshoe" tweak adjuster. He tested the car last sunday on our home track. It was cold and dusty, but the car seemed to perform ok.
I edged him out with just one point to win third place in last year's Inter Club Competition. I sure hope I can keep up with him this year!
