soooo.... will 4 cell mod work? 1/10 road classes are five minutes so they'll probably be able to run eight or nine turn motors now or somebody could make a trail link car so u can run a lipo. Maybe even a two 3200 pack lipo car with brushless system and run 45 minutes. this might be fun but I think the race should rap up in five minutes in order to catch on and be popular for national indoor events. either way i don't see a problem with the class and don't understand why it didn't adapt like any other class does today. 1/12 scale is my favorite on road class but 1/12 scales in general are twitchy and a little more difficult to drive than 1/10.Xpressman said:The last time Pro-10 (10th scale modified pan car 6-cell) ran as a national ROAR class was at the Minnreg in Fl. From what I remember Josh Cyrul and Mike Blackstock saying is the cars were just too fast. And that was only with 11 turns. They were just to fast and you just couldn;t drive them smoothly. Even in stock they are a hand full unless they are on a big track. Somewhat the same thing as 12th stock 6-cell, it is even faster the 4-cell mod and just to hard to handle.

I dont think we will be seeing any more t-plate cars from AE since thunder tiger bought them. they have officially jumped on the design of the year band wagon with the new 1/12 car.not to mention after 20 + years of being an AE fan I have jumped ship because the qaulity of the new plastics sucks. they are about as brittle a peice of 14th century china.I think there is supposed to be a 235 conversion for this car released at some point. I know that BMI Motorsports is supposed to be out sometime in March and some other manufacturers have plans to release as the year progresses. I wouldn't mind seeing AE bring the 10L3T back out of mothballs for this
The RC12R5 can be a T-bar if you want it to be that way. Most go that way for outdoors.I dont think we will be seeing any more t-plate cars from AE since thunder tiger bought them. they have officially jumped on the design of the year band wagon with the new 1/12 car.not to mention after 20 + years of being an AE fan I have jumped ship because the qaulity of the new plastics sucks. they are about as brittle a peice of 14th century china.
I wait to i see the car and see how it runs before i say any thing.I found this yesterday, and was wondering why AE decided to build their chassis as a 4cell only car. Most of the other 10th's could be converted to Lipo. I also feel the quality of the Associated plastic has been going down hill. The cars are also heavy. They may be good for intro guys and hobbyshops as AE is available everywhere, but once you really want to start racing and and tune the car, you have to go aftermarket. I love the GTP stuff as 1/12 is the fun class now and 1/10 use to be. I liked the CRC car, and leaning that way. AE is on the way out.
