Default pan cars

i was looking at a trinity evolution and a bolink sport 2000. i was wondering if anyone would know if these cars are old, or would be hard to get parts for at a track if i broke something. i plan on racing at classic hobbies in akron, ohio.

The Trinity car is a very good car (far superior to the Bolink). Parts availability might be difficult. The carbon or fiberglass parts are not being manufactured anymore, but you make them yourself.
Other miscelanious parts can be found on Trinity's website.
The Bolink will be very difficult to get any parts for, since Bolink seems to be out of buisness.
If you want a 10th pan car, you can best buy an Associated RC10L2.

There are still numerous pan cars out there... Like pro 10 said you can get an 10L2... If you want to run 190mm bodies you can get a RC10L3T or a CRC Pantoura... There are a few more also... The good thing with the AE or CRC cars is that 1/12th parts are a direct fit.....

i was thinking of picking up a 1/12 scale pan, like a crc knife or a 12l4. my question is how do these car handle and compare in speed to 1/10 scale touring cars like the 415 n stuff?

With similar electrics pan cars are faster, both in a straight line, and in corners, except for very slippery surfaces.

Aadolf,
I don't think you'll find parts for them at Classic Hobby.. I race there and most of the parts are for Assoc., Hyperdrive, or KSG. They do have beginners classes, but the parts for the cars you were looking at could be a problem. There are alot of guys that race there, you may be able to pick up a used car from one of them.

If you want a pan car... Go AE, CRC or Speedmerchant.... I think Hyperdrive has a road car also.... They all take AE front ends , shock and axels.... Not like you break anything anyway.....

Aadolf-the regular pan cars wont fair well on on oval, much less a banked ovallike Classic I am afraid. As others have suggested-your better off with a cheap Associated oval chassis.

If you are going to run both onroad and oval get an Associated 10L3. If just oval get an Associated 10L4. Both are great cars, plentiful and easy to get parts for.

like ray said if your running oval get a used car as mentioned by associated if your running onroad the cars on a well preped track is faster then anything outthere. If the conditions get bumpy or slippery your going to have to wheel that sucker because at that point you will be wishing for Four wheel drive.!

What car you get depends on what you want to run and what body you want to run.... The 10L2 is a wide car and the 10L3 is a narrow car.... The 10L2's are also damper plate while the L3/4 are Tri shock.... The L4 is Oval only, there is no road course chassis for it....

The car on the left is an L3T, the car on the right is an L2.... The width difference is obvious....
