Default Help identify this 10th pan

I got this pan today in a trade. Was told it was a RC10l4. Gonna setup for world gt as my first on road and just making sure so that i can start ordering spares.

That does look like a 10L4... However, that will not work I believe for a world GT car, as they are 200mm wide and that car looks to be much wider, probably 235 mm. You might want to measure it first and see, if it's about 8 inces wide across the rear tires it will work, if it's 9 inches or so it will not fit under any world GT body, good luck!

It's not an L4. Looks much earlier than that as it has the asymmetric t-bar. I'd say 10LSO with a modified chassis.

Another question if this is wider than 200mm, can i change out all the rear pod for newer parts to make it that?

If you are truly interested in a "gt" car I would just say purchase one if you can... I did and have not looked back yet.

you bought a hacked up rc10L chassis, probably an LSO not sure. It has the 10L plastic left bulhead. Hope you didn't pay too much for it. Measure the width at the back. It is cheaper and in the long run easier to just buy a newly designed car.

Thats not an Associated L4 looks more like an older RC10L. I recently bought a Associated 10R5 to run WGT and am very Happy with it, nice car. Paid $260 at my local hobby shop very nice complete kit, you can probably pick it up cheaper online?

Luckely i didnt pay anything for it. If it measures out I may just run it and get the feel for onroad. Then if anything i am not to far into it if i dont feel that i want to run.

Check Associated's website (www.rc10.com)

That looks like the earlier RC10L series of cars and you can find part numbers to switch the rear pod over to the three shock setup.

Now if this was Europe, that car would be pretty good for the Pro10 class. Old school 235mm pan cars. I think Protoform still carries 235mm bodies, so you can run it if you'd like.

Drop me a PM if you'd like some more info...

I have a original RC10L, and this seem more actual, maybe 10L2, the rear pod and central shock are the same, and front suspension, the rest are different, with protoform P905 work very well in asphalt, more fast than a good touring with modified motor.

Greetings, Luis C.

Yep, early 10L but not the original 10L. Definitely before the L4.

It is a 10L(ish), but definitely a custom or aftermarket chassis and newer front suspension from AE (not the purpel dye though). It is a 235mm wide format for the class like 1986...there were a 200mm shaft and conversion for that when they change to 200mm when Touring Car was hot at early 90s...however, that was like good 18 years ago, so good luck finding it.

If you really want to race WGT, really, get a used recent model WGT...I am sure they are dirt cheap. This 10L is way old of a design and I am not sure you can still find TIRES that work with the old wheels adaptor. You might have to glue your foams and find the old rims for that..

Not worth to spend money to buy parts and run it...just use it for collection.

Looks like an RC10L SS (super speedway) with some of the battery slots dremeled out.
