I think but im not sure that is the 235mm class or something along those lines. Serpent makes a 235 car and i think 3 racing makes conversions for all the popular 200mm cars to convert them to 235mm

The conversion you are referring to only converts a 200mm car to 220mm. The 220mm class did not take off as well as many had hoped and only a few (mainly West Coast racers) still run this class. Serpent still produces a 235mm car (the 835) but it is mostly sold in Europe (the class is dead in the states). I have a Super Nitro and two Serpent 235mm Impacts (2wd) and loved this class and am sad that it died off. The Impact was more stable than a 200mm and with the right engine, almost as fast as an 1/8th scale on-road car but at a slightly lesser cost.

You are right. OFNA did offer a 235mm car called the Colt 10. It was pretty much a Serpent Impact clone with many of the Serpent parts compatible with the OFNA (only difference in some of the parts was that Serpent was stamped on the Serpent part and OFNA stamped on the OFNA part). It did not get much recognition because OFNA did not advertise/push the car but from what I heard, it was right up there with the Impact.
