Default Capricorn P1 235mm

Hello all,

I just picked up one of these so I thought I'd start a thread. I think this class may take off...if not it's a cool car, at least.

Almost done with the build. Just have to install electronics. The center pivot ball is super smooth and cool.

Pro10, unfortunatly gets not enough love here in the US. I wish it would, but DTM (TC) killed pro10 here. Its going strong in europe. Join Moosimaster in Germany, they will have some guys that can gelp with setup etc.

I was fortunate enough to be part of its golden age 90's!

i know you will love the car, and run it on 2S only way to go!!!

Thanks. We ran it last year and had low turnouts, but it definitely got people attention. We should have at least 5 more cars this year. First race is this Saturday.

How did the car handle? Seems like all of the weight to the car is on the right, motor and servo...or did u compensate and add weight to the left?
