First off, what electronics should I get? I already have a radio, just need batts, batt charger, esc, and motor (19t and stock).

Sorry about the noob questions, I'm just trying to get back into electric.
what part of No cal are you from?

Hey guys, I created a section on the US Pan Car forum called "Race Calendar" You can post all information about races other than the US Pan Car Championships where pan cars will be raced

Hey I am eyeballing an RC10L3T with a McLaren body on Ebay. It has a buy it now price of 60 bux. should I take it? I was hoping to get a L2 but I really like how inexpensive the chassis is for the kind of condition that its in. If I do I could always get an L2 later on (I mean I still have those bodies thirdplace gave me last year)

You would have the parts to make a 2.5 if it didn't work out.

You'd need L2 turnbuckles, a rear axle, a front chassis brace and a piece of graphite or something to space the front suspension further apart. You could make do with a evry simple rectectengular piece of graphite with 8 holes in it.

Default L3T

I ran an L30 with the batteries 3_3 last year. It has the bennies of 3 shocks. Then I drove my sons Plain Ol L and wider is better. The L30 got me through the first season and had me hooked. Spend the $60, get it THEN GET HOOKED. You can go for the 2.5 later and the rear pod and shocks will help you out. If you bought the 2 Micro shocks ($30.00) , and rear pod plates, you will be almost up to the $60.00 anyhow. Meanwhile you will be racing!

Going to run one of my heats this saturday with 4 cells and a 19 turn to check out lap times. 4 cell Oval is popular here, there are lots of L30s, L and L2 around here, but they all run oval. If I run 4 cells maybe they will try turning right.

toady its fine if he posts here.
i tried calling you at work and pierre answerd this is a long subject to reply too i'll to keep it short ray.
the car will aceppt a 190 mm body but it will be close on the fenders you ll need to trim quite a bit from the quarter panel.
the cars are actually 200 mm wide if you can locate them proline did make a narrow p35 nissan gtp. but when my lhs ran out i ran the p11 gt1 from protoform. and the car worked great.
we added penalty weight to the wide cars because they were beter at the faster sections of track that changed directions quicly (wider stance !) but when the track was smooth and flowing we were f aster because less areo drag. hope this helps.

good luck you'll notice how much faster the car accelerates down the back straight over the wide cars its almost like watching the fia gt1 cars . the bodies are realistic to scale so it makes them look sleek going down the back straight!
