You should have done that Robo, I would not have mind at all

Yes, fast it is but like I said. I just put it together from the manual. No grease in the diff or tubes yet even LOL.
Now I will take it apart again and start building it. You know how it works mate...

Where are you from then? Come and visit us this summer as we race the Benelux+ race again with Pro10 cars. A very nice event over here with lot's of Pro10 action!!!
I'm from Tucson, Az, USA. About 500 miles southeast of LA. Back in the day, we raced Pro10 a lot, but now I only know of 2 other cars in my area and neither one is running. I get my Trinity out every 6 months or so and take it for a spin, just in case. Really wish I could come to Europe for some racing, but the budget just won't stand for it. Got to spend 3K on a new clutch for my Subaru Legacy soon.

3K on a Subaru clutch? Even THAT is cheaper over here in Europe LOL... Pity you can't come man. It is really fun driving over here.

Anyway, let's get back on topic again

Expect a full report on how this baby runs. I think my old 10R5 is becoming a bit dated.

Naaahhh
I still kick some ass with my 10R5 against Corally's 235MM cars
Both running 2S and 10.5 motors.
Run it with 2S shorties or make a brace up front so you can run saddlepack or 2 1S 1:12 lipo's.
You would be supriced how it runs

regards Roy

I have been running my 10R5.1 for a month. I love it. I am pretty much running Keven Hebert's 12R5.2 on it and its dialed. Get some black side springs, a blue center spring and 27.5wt oil. I am on pace with the fastest cars at my track (BMI Copperhead 10's and CRC Gen X10's).

what difference does the black side springs make, are these fitted to your 1/12th or WGT I have to say this is the best combo of cars ive ever had and been racing since 1976 I LOVE MY ASSOCIATED CARS.

Adrian, you mean Kevin Herbert's 12R5.2 set-up I guess? Okay, well I have all the springs and oil laying around so that will be no problem...

The soft side springs make the car smoother, more consistent and allow for more mid corner rotation. I am actually using SpeedMerchant .018" Linear side springs. They are a bit softer through their travel than blacks which are progressive.

Yes, the 1/12 setup. The only change is that I run the .018" front springs. My home track is all high speed corners and hairpins. On a track with fast chicanes .020" springs would keep the car flatter for faster transitions.

Yes, that would be logical for the front springs. I still have to see what kind of track it will be where I will running the car. Still have to wait for some stuff like bodies, motor and batteries. Then I will give the car that basic set-up from Kevin's car and we'll see how it goes...

Today I updated the front end of the car with parts from CEFX & CRC. It was something I was planning to do for a while on the P235-CS Pro10 car and the parts came in so I did the update on the R5.1 front end because I wanted to do this with the V2 lower arms...

Looks great and the movement is super-smooth!!!







The wheels now use larger bearings (3/16 x 5/16) and are kept in place with a bolt rather than a locknut.
