Hello All! It appears lately that 1/10th pancars are getting some attention.(finally) A friend of mine runs a road course here in N.Y.
Pro-Speed R/C Raceway.If enough interest is generated Pro-Speed will run a GTP/Pro-10 class.Can some of you fellas post some links or contacts
to purchase some bodies for the wide 235mm pancars??Looks as if bodies are getting hard to find,less' I'm blind or not looking hard enough.Thanks ahead for any help.

Here is what one of my buddies, Mark Anton says about that:


Quick summary of bodies.

You don’t need a complete list – much like 95% of all the sedan bodies ever produced (do you ever see a competitive sedan racer run something other than a Stratus, Mazda 6 or Alfa?), 95% of all the pan car bodies ever produced over the years run like sh$t. These are the main ones that we run.

For high downforce, but unfortunately, also with a significant drag penalty, the AE Nissan: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...=LX2711&P=7

For medium downforce and a body that will work well most of the time at most tracks, the HB Toyota: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...=LXK897&P=7

For lowish downforce but with low drag, the Protoform Peugeot. Unfortunately, Protoform is being ornery right now and has “discontinued” that body for roughly the fifth time in the last four years. As an alternative, I’ve been suggesting the Dahm’s LT Lowla (http://www.dahms-intl.com/d054.html) . In my (very limited) experience with the body, it handles very, very close to the Proto Peugeot. On the other hand, if you ever feel the need for maximum downforce, the Dahm’s Splice (http://www.dahms-intl.com/dah21a.html) should do the trick but that would be for very rare cases.
