Default 235mm pan car questions

Does anyone know if a company makes a conversion kit for the rc10r5?

Also is there a big difference in performance in going to 235mm with this car or any pan car? what are the benifits of a wider car?

off the shelf, who make a 235mm?

Default Full-Option 235mm comparison...

Hey, take a look at my post, it's from a couple of years ago but I was very competitive back then with this conversion:

Did you ever finish producing the upper pod plate to convert to a 10l2.5 with the wide pod?

If you did, do you have any left? I would like to get one 1 or 2

The wider car will corner faster and be less twitchy, especially on high-grip tracks (like indoor carpet with a good groove). If grip is very high the wider car can corner faster before it rolls over.

On high-speed tracks, the wider car can generate more downforce, which again makes it corner faster.

But, as with many other things, the driver is more important to the lap times than the width of the car.

Default Upper pod plate - 10L2.5

Unfortunately no, right in the middle of the designs I lost computer access, and the the company went out of business. I still have the files, but I need the correct program to continue the work.

I was thinking of purchasing a Autocad license this year and restart the project again.

I'll start posting again if this happens...

Originally, this design was intended to use CRC damper tubes, but now that Associated has both a 12th & 10th scale kits with damper tubes, the redesign with accommodate Associated parts exclusively.
