Default RC10L3T

I am running a kinetix 3300 stage 1 6-cell pack along with a 19t spec motor by lightspeed, and the car is blazing fast. On a tight track it was pretty dicey...and definately less forgiving than anything Ive ever drove...but thats what makes it so fun.

The idea is to grow the class. With racing 4 cell you also have 1/12th racing 4 cell - Less expense.The class was killed when they voted for 6 cell open motors. 4 cell 19t works good and it's away to grow a dead class.

Screw 4 cells, run 6. I know 6 cell stock is faster than touring car. It is also a whole different beast to drive. I can catch em on the straight outdoors and on the infield indoors, If I could only get it all together, I coul beat touring cars lap for lap. Give me some time. I am hooked too. I run 1/12 scale. It does EXACTLY what I tell it to. The 1/0 pan car drives a little easier and is faster because of the 6 cells. NOT much more weight, but a longer wheel base. Next week my son and I will be running pan cars, that is 2 so all we need are 2 more and we will have a class of our own.

I think if people see how fast they can be, and how inexpensive they can be they will come back. ANYBODY can drive a sedan.

No matter what number of cells, and turns, a pan car is faster than any sedan with the same electronics. Just think of a formula that will work for you and a few of your friends, get those cars out and run them. You don't need no all new fancy chassis to be fast. If you have an old RC10L, get it out and run it! It will please you! You got old dried up tires? Put on some traction compound, maybe true a little off it, and you're all set!

On another note, I heard that Dpowell was going to make a new pro ten chassis, maybe it's time to make him have a look into this thread. Speedxl, will you do the honors?

From experience the 6 cell open motor killed our attempt to bring the class back.Also some one also quit running the class shortly after it was started?I'll like to start racing the class as the 3 brothers still probably have there car as does Scot . Maybe at RPM speedway?[ 4 cell- 19t].

I am building a new L2 and I am going to be using IRS upgrades,
right now the aftermarket upgrades are a fraction of what I will spend on my TC. I think the low cost and easy setup will attract
Racers back to 1/10 pan and from what I have read 4cell would be a great way to go low cost is what we need and the more manufactures that see this will help this class. I really apprecate the intrest in this thread I hope all the talk will come to something great again.

I am looking forward to the Pro10 class (6 cell but stock motor) at the upcoming ROAR Asphalt Nats in Portland, Oregon (even if only an 'exhibition' class). I just got my L2 in the mail.

Hey Mark, I was wondering if you could make a poll about my U.S. Road Course Championships (or pan car championships whichever sounds better) idea. I just wanna gauge the interest in having a pan car only event. Can you make that happen?

trackdesigner a pancar only event would be great . the japenese still hold their pancar nationals and they get over 100 guys just for 6 cell modified

it also would be nice to see 12 scale run six cells again !

Thanks for the vote of confidence. Here is a list of possible classes I came up with off the top of my head:


Pro 10 6 cell stock
Pro 10 4 cell 19t
pro 10 6 cell Mod (with probably a 12T limit to prevent blowovers)
Pro 10 6 cell touring (with GTP bodies)
Pro 12 4 cell stock
Pro 12 4 cell mod
Pro 12 6 cell open

any Im forgetting?

Change Pro10 touring to touring/gt1 bodies for the people with 10L3t's that already have them setup that way.

No motor limit on Pro10 mod. If we can do it every month on a track with a 200' straight and not have regular blowovers, it can be done. On the other hand, if the track is small, the cars will be too fast regardless of what mod. motor is being used.

Add a Tamiya GT1/F103 class (they're pan cars too) since Tamiya abandoned them and there are lots of them out there.

Otherwise, it's a good idea to kick around but I dunno if anything will come of it.

Yeah, I have an old tamiya F103 in the closet too. It needs a new axle...I remember it being blazing fast with just the 540 johnson.
