I would say one of the nicest feature is a wider front end as a standard. Ruf and myself have been preaching about this for quite some time. The Pro27AAA is 3 mm wider at each side in the front than the MR-02. This allows you to run +0 front wheels and the car be as wide as an MR-02 with +3 wheels. Running less offset in the front will lead to a car with quicker and more precise steering response.

The chassis is a (nearly) direct fit on the Atomic VDSII body.
We use regular body posts & clips to hold the body as this is a lot more secure fastening method - forget dislocated bodies.
What you need to do is to make holes for the post and some dremeling on the "side air intakes".
Lexan bodies, if legal, are of course also an option.

First Report:

I got to run the car for a couple of battery packs on RCP yesterday. Our club has low to medium grip and the surface is a bit bumpy (not only due to the RCP tiles, but also the surface underneath). On the first run the car was a bit bouncy as the dampening was too light. Grip was overall very good, especially in the front.

Second run I added some Atomic Medium SAS lube to the side damper tube and the center shock. The car now handled the bumps much better, but lost some rear grip. I was having slight steering issues as I didn't have the servo recommended by inzane installed yet. I kept adjusting tweak and ride height afterwards and managed to generate a little more grip with the car. The car is still a bit unpredictable though. With a little track time, it should be on par or better than the rest of the cars out there.

My first impressions of the Pro-27 are very promising. The car is very close to being VERY, VERY fast. I still need to find the ideal tire combination for the car as it generates much more steering than the MR-02. The same tires in the front end of this car as in an MR-02 generate twice the amount of steering.

Our first review is now on-line. We will add as we discover more information on the car and the set-ups required to run on RCP.

How low can you go?


What's that little hole for?


The Giro-Z transponder beacon of course!


Ah, I miss the days of building my own kits! I'm probably the happiest with how the wiring turned out. I'm trying to use a microflight receiver so I rewired everything with these tiny JST plugs and thin wires cut to exact length. I was going to chop off the 3rd and 4th channel plugs to make the receiver even smaller, but I realized that I could use one to power the Giro-Z transponder!

@INZANE - Love your car man.... Wow. Nothing else like it in 1/27 racing.
How do you like the 3R Outer-tuned diff? Also, did you install a PN 64-pitch spur on that diff? How did that go, does it just drop in or are there any mods that have to be done to the diff to fit the 64p spurs? There's another post where I asked this question, but I saw your car and I've been eager to find out if this combo diff+spur work well together. Thanks
Very much looking forward to seeing more of this car

I tried the 3Racing diff more than a year ago and used them since then - it's by far the best diff there is IMHO.
Super smooth and the ball bearing takes away the wobble you always have with other diffs.
PN's 64 pitch spur gears are direct replacements - but I haven't had time to do full testing yet, but so far it's has worked very good.

Ridiculously nice, and the wiring looks great too (bullet plugs = nice touch). Mind if I ask what ESC and receiver you're using?

Felix - I just tried it and the PN 64 pitch gears are a direct swap for the 3Racing outer tuned ball diff. Smooth too. Try the 53T spur for a "standard" sized diff.

I took pictures so expect a new diff build tutorial soon! Sanding and gluing rings, ball count, thrust bearings, and resurfacing left hub flats will all be covered as well as an overall layout of the 3Racing outer tuned ball diff.

color01 - dunno if you're typing to me, but I'm using a decased Xray speedo and a Cirrus micro-flight rx retuned for 75MHz.

Thanks ruf, I was asking InZane but now that you mention it it does look like you guys are both using the Cirrus receiver. Didn't realize Cirrus can re-tune those to 75MHz. Anyways, thanks for the quick reply.

Based on his plug configuration, I don't think InZane is using a Cirrus.

InZane - BTW, nice recessed servo...
