If this car is anything like the prior, the upper arm length can occur in two ways-
1- expanding track width by shimming lower arms (can use brace)
2- moving just the upper camber/caster mount inward with shims (cannot use the brace)

On black carpet frankly I like the 1/12 w/o the brace..

What is the minimal width front and back? Is it possible to have 5mm ride height with 60mm tires with the ride height adjusters at the back?

ill have to ask about width.

ride height shouldn't be an issue. shims along with different adjusters will be able to get you the right ride height.

Please be aware to not use Roche P10 inline front axle on your pan cars, the aluminium is as stiff as chewing gum and bend very easily (which change the front geometry badly), even with no hard hit...I bend 3 pairs of these axles on my 4.5t powered Pro 10 235mm

I shared this with Max.. He never heard of this before.
Its always good to let folks know about issues early so they can be corrected...

Hey Mike,

that was the goal of my message, didn't mean to criticize the brand's products for pleasure, but just letting know people about my experience.

As I said, I bought 3 pairs of them (first time 1 then 2 as I knew they could bend/brake). I broke 1 axle on a big hard crash, my bad. The second time I noticed a problem, the axle was bent and so the camber was distorted. No crash at all (I'm not the best driver but I can stay on the track for 5min runtime), so I was very surprised. Maybe the 2 long curves and the grip with the body/foam tires and the powerful motor is too much, I don't know...

Anyway, I think these inline axles are well designed, especially the M3 thread, which allow you to use the quick fixation nut system on the hudy 1/12 setup system, but the raw material is not stiff enough. It would certainly be better if they were done with spring steel or else. If so, I'm in

Regards,
G-rem

Default first pro ten car

Hi all,

I have been looking for a 235 mm pro ten car and I think I just found it.
For most other kits you need a conversion kit and I hear a lot of people complaining about vibrations when they do that.
I was looking at the serpent and the Xray but after seeing this I think the choice has been made.
I am not to familiar with Roche, can anyone tell me how the parts availability for Roche usually is?

Regards,

Hans

Default Any news yet?

Hello all,

After trying a crc with a widening kit to get it to 235 mm i know i want a 235 mm specific kit. It vibrated pretty badly but the class is fun and fast.
I took it to my local track in the netherlands and had a blast. I have decided to order a roche p10 w, any news yet on the release date?

Regards

Hans

Thanks for keeping us informed! I've got mine pre-ordered with Zen-Racing...

They're also out of stock of the P12'16 and P10, hopefully they'll come in soon as well!
