Default Calandra Pantoura

I am looking into getting a 1/10 pan car. I like the look of the Pantoura and was wondering if it is a good car.

Looks cool but I have never actually seen one in action. Not a very popular car.

Rule 0: Buy what you can get parts for.

I don't have one myself but I have owned Calandra cars before and all their stuff is good. Postal, where in IL do you live? I'm looking to do some onroad myself.

Do you want to run sedans or GP's? Pantoura is a narrow chassis and it's meant for sedans.

Well it's a pancar so broken parts aren't gonna be a problem, except for rear axles.... which you can get replaced by almost anyone, unless CRC uses a weird diff assembly.

BUT.... why do you want a pancar?? does anyone at your local track race one. Trust we you don't want a pancar to just mess around with. They can be very hard to handle especially on non-perfect surfaces. Also the car cost the same as some other 4wd tourers that are very capable of getting the job done.

Spongebob-- it would be a very popular car if tracks had a 2wd touring class.

It is a popular class on the east coast and at a couple tracks up north. Most places run them as a 4 cell stock or 19 turn class. 19 turn is as fast as mod 4wd sedan with less cost for tires,parts, etc. I'd like to get a class started somewhere near me. With these cars you could run all the cool looking sports car bodies you're not allowed to use in 4wd. As far as cost, CRC has it for sale for $160 so it is a little cheaper than most sedans.

What I am trying to get some parts made to make it in to a true Pro 10 car. If it works I would like to see CRC make a kit so you can run it as a Pro 10.

Calandra used to make a Pro 10 car but with interest dying off they discontinued it. You could widen the Pantoura with a Pro 10 diff assembly but widening the front would be harder. I don't think there's enough material outside of the mounting holes on the front suspension to move the holes out further. Call Frank @ CRC and see if he has any chassis from the old car left. If he does he would probably ship it to you.

Well I got my Pantoura and it is a great car. The best thing is the weight is centered and you don't have to tape the batteries in.



JonnySocko I live near Bloomington and His N Hers Hobbies has a track that races a pan car class. It is 6 cell stock motor and runs on a carpet road course. Most of the cars that run are L3Ts. The winter season is over and am not sure if they are going to run the pancars outside or not.

Hey Postal,

Glad to hear you got a kit. I live in Rantoul and made it over a couple of weeks ago to check out the indoor track. I picked up a schedule while I was there for the outdoor stuff. If the lot is smooth enough I could bring my car over and we could run some "sportscar" bodies. E-m me, my addy is [email protected]. I think I saw you while I was there, do you run the usps decals on your car?

Littledog,

Neither, the price I posted is for the Pantoura. The regular Knife is about $125, I think and the price for the red Knife is $250.
