Yes they are a rare sight in singapore. I believe most people here have never seen a pro 10 or even a 1/12 being run before. Not because they are not being made but for the simple reason that the lhs does not bring in anymore. In fact AE, Yokomo, Corally and Tech racing still makes both 1/12 and 1/10 pan cars. They are still popular in US, Japan and especially Europe.
In Singapore LHS only focus on what is most popular (to minimize loss) so touring dominated every other onroad class.

I have just recently started running f1 and 1/12 (yes they are fun)but never actually owned a pro 10 or even seen one in real life. I would sure like to see pro 10 being run again since from what I know they are the fastest of all the pan classes.

freshjive: What car was it that jack brought to MS? The only person I know to have a pro10 is Henry from RC speedway.

i just went the other week to MS with my 1/12 in a BMW M3 body ... had a blast even though it didn't handle as well compared to GTP body. I should have brought some harder springs and thicker syrup ... but still it was fun to able to run at such a speed!!!

I have 1/12 too, a Corally sp12m which I got cheap at $215. Do they handle well at MS? What F1 is it you driving?

GTO: You can get the Corally sp12g3 at Speedline. Wuikiat still have lots in stock. Its a good car but not cheap $350. Might be able to get some discount or you can get his brother sell his.

check out June issue radio control car action. Takashimaya still got a lot of copies! It has a write out on corally 1/12 SP12M Graphite. GTO, in fact i am sourcing around to see if I should get a Tamiya or corally . Chances is I will go for the corally, more impressive to me. Cheers
