I mostly lurk right now, but when I was regularly racing, I was also regularly doing the maintenance. Either I'd do it while watching TV or I'd be out in the garage. It's a hobby - and as in all...

If there is a standard - like the Protoform Cup referenced above - I'd stick with that and just bring out your car and practice with it. Play with it and show how much fun it is. 10.5 / 2S / LMP...

If a 1/10th sedan can run it, a Pro10 can run it. :) Pro10 is only a bit wider, much more maneuverable, and faster. On a tight track, just run slower and turn inside everyone! LOL
