I have been waiting to talk to Steve about it. I dont have access to any Pan cars as they are not raced here. This makes it awkward for me to design a shell as I dont have any dimensions or anything to work from.

I was waiting to hear from Steve to see whether he would be able to get hold of one and whether it would be viable to produce them in small quantities. How many do you think would sell for Pan Cars? And how many people are their who would be interested in new Pan Car shells? Also, what type of shell would the majority of people be interested in?

No problem. Steve is looking at what he can come up with at his end. So you might still be in luck.

Default Im Back to Full Solid !!! WOOOOOWWW !!!

Guys, as some of you may know, i ended about a month and a half my "full solid configuration" and went to front solid and rear diff configuration.

Now, this last weekend i participated on a race (2nd one in Brasil). The track was medium size, 75% high speed 25% twisty layout with a lot of grip. The format was a 15 minutes of classification and 30 minutes final. I got classified on the 6th place and during the waiting for the main i was discussing about full solid configuration with a guy (MTX3) and he dont believe that its a fast setup (well, he said fast but with too little control for his style of driving).

Well, the thing is that, I DONT KNOW WHY (well, i know, just selfish pride), i took my Yokomo and changed the rear diff for a solid axle, and maintained the side plastic pulleys.

The bottom line its .... I ENDED ON THE SECOND PLACE !!!! ... WOOOOHOOOO !!! ... the first place was a MTX3 (the guy i was talking to prior the race), the third another MTX3 and the 4th and 5th was NTC3 cars. Now the guy with the MTX3 want to try full solid configuration too. BTW, we are running here with rubber tires 24mm.

My friends, IM VERY HAPPY, since i changed to front solid and rear diff im having more time to get practice and my driving its better and now back to full solid i think i re-feel more comfortable with this fast-and-furious setup.

SO ... IM HOOKED UP AGAIN on the full solid setup, i think i have now what i needed, more "hands" due to more practice time.

Modellor, you were right, the best was to go back to full solid setup.

Note : I just have 1 thing to check. Even when its not annoying and i can race with the car as is, im feeling a little push to the right during first acceleration and again a little push to the right when the second gear kicks inn (im using the shoe-type 2 speed kit). The setup have 1 Toe out in front, 1 Camber in front, 2.5 Camber on the rears and 1.5 Toe in on the fronts. Front gray (almost white) springs and rear white springs. Side pulleys are stock plastics. This last weekend i were running with Sorex 32's front and rear during the morning and Sorex 40 front and rear the rest of the day and during the finals.

Thanks for your attention guys !!

Email me the following dimensions and I should be able to start work on a shell. I have got most dimensions now so I should be able to piece it all together with your added dimensions.

The height of front suspension mounts 20mm from the wheel and at the centre point.
The height of the rear end at the center point on the axle and the bodyposts.
The height the cells, receiver and speedo sit.

All dimensions should be from the topline of the chassis. Also if possible could someone send me pictures of a fully prepped Pro10. Several close detail pics would be great and if possible 1 from the side and one from the front at car level.

Hey,

Wheelbase: about 13 inches

Front width: 8.25 inches

Rear width: 8 5/8 inches

Front height: about 3 inches

Rear height, about 5 inches (both those heights are with the adjusters on the body posts at their lowest point)

3" and 5" seem a little high????? Should that be cms?

Also, how far in front of the front wheels does the body extend? and what type of track do you normally run on (tight/twisty or fast/flowing etc)?

Also, what is the normal width of the front wheels???

Well the height itself is like 1-2 inches on both ends. I made the measurements from the ground so that added a good inch or two. the body extends only like 1/2-1 inch in front.


there are little adjusters on the body posts and that is why the initial numbers for the height were a little high.

Its also really more a fast and flowing sort of track

Hey Modellor, the wheelbase is also about a foot and the width runs about 5-8 inches. I have to grab my little notebook so I can make sure I got the numbers straight


also, you think it could be modeled after a old style Nissan GTP from the IMSA days (if it isnt too much trouble)?
