I've got one more 235mm body, done, in house. talk about it soon. next day or two. I have hopes to run one myself.

i don't see a lot more bodys, to hard to store and ship. AND, everytime you add one you sell fewer of each one of the rest. More inventory, less turnover, more problems. Gotta find the right amount of "just a few" to make it work.

Mostly old guys probably, but I'm only in my mid-twenties, and I just picked up a 235mm pan car because I remember them running back before I was able to afford my own car. MY father and I would go to races just to watch, and these cars were what stood out to me the most. I'm excited to finally have one, anxious to rebuild it (RC10L), and now you just made it that much harder for me to decide which body shell I want to put on top when its done. I've got some spare electronics and silver can laying around, I feel it'll make an excellent practice car. Can't wait to try it!

Ah yes, the good old days when wide 10th pan ruled. I'm still sitting on a body but sold off my pan cars years ago. I started with a Bolink Sport but quickly moved to the TRC Composite Craft Lynx II Elite.

For the wide Pan Car guys, we still have the Toyota, Jaguar and Nissan GTP bodies available. You can get them from Stormer Hobbies. Pictures below.

Also we have a line of Street Stock bodies that will work; 70 Mustang, 70s Camaro, 70 Barracuda, and even a mid 80s Monte Carlo plus a current Nascar COT body for the wide Pan Cars. Everything is on our website....call Bob at Stormer.

...Been to the site numerous times just to check those out. Always hard to pick a favorite though. Maybe the Nissan for just having the bold lines. Reminds me of going to Daytona as a kid with my dad and seeing those cars going around the track. Really might have to find an old 235mm car, even if it's a basket case, just so I can mount some nice wheels and a shell up.

OK reality check. The TOJ is not on the site as far as my search can go, and Bob hasn't had the Toyota on his site for several months. I bought the Nissan because I like it but it's a bit oversize for my EV-10.

Might I recommend BRP? Bud always had the best wings in the business.

We just got done running an 8 hour enduro at our track. The cars to beat were the 1/10 Pan Cars...

They are the car to run for enduros.

Cool body. The andy's TOJ came with a detailed figure molded as part of the body and looked very good (i have 2 andy's TOJ). Does this body come with a driver or is it flat ontop? It is not clearly vissible in the picture. If there isn't a driver molded as part of the body is there a driver figure that would fit?

hmm ok... need to look around for a suitable driver then. An open cockpit without a driver just doesn't look right, even at 100km/h.
