Pioneer Endurance Car Proxy

Postby midagekid1 » Tue Sep 26, 2017 12:06 pm

Hi:

My name is Thomas Coulas and I am the Pioneer Distributor For Canada. I would like to put together a Proxy that will run Pioneer cars only. So that means Mustangs, both Notchback and Fastback, Camaros and Chargers. The rules would be very simple. Keep the cars stock except for the tires which would have to be urethane. Everything else would be stock including the chassis, interiors, wheels, axles, guides and the motor size would be limited to the Typhoon 18000 rpm. Individual numbers would be assigned as there would be repetitive cars running in the field. Cars could also be detailed to real liveries or fantasy liveries as well. Cars could be individually tuned by the racers.. Right now I am just generating some interest in seeing who would like to host and would participate in this race. This race if it happens would be sometime in 2018 around February or March.

Looks like I just bought my 1st Pioneer #33 please! I assume no magnet but weight may be added and can you swap bushings? This is the 1st of many questions you will receive.

Glad to see some great comments and questions. This is new for me so all help will be accepted. I think from some of the responses so far...

Original magnets can be left in. I think most of the courses will be wood and I would like to see at least 75% of the racing be on wood tracks. Plastic courses would also be allowed and would offer some different racing due to the magnets.

Tuning can be anything the car builder wants as long as the original components are kept so the bushings need to be what the car came with...

I would also want the body to stay as original as possible so that means keeping the wheel wells the same and no sanding the body panels to take off weight.

Keep up the questions so I can this right....

Just another random comment.... the Pioneer cars also come with a spare parts bag under the base and contain a wood guide which can be used.

Thomas, I mean absolutely no disrespect here and I think it's phenomenal that you're reaching out directly to the hobbyist for this proxy. But I only feel compelled to get a car directly from a shop, maybe one of your distributors in Canada even but with this hobby hurting I can't pass over a Mom and Pop shop and pick up direct from the distributor.

No disrespect taken.... this was not to take business away from the local hobby shop's around Canada and the U.S., and I appreciate you wanting to support these shops as they are like most small businesses today, struggling to make a dollar... In Canada because of the overall economy, there are only a very few shops willing to carrying the Pioneer line and this was to ensure if anyone was interested in this Proxy, that they would be able to get a car easily for Canadian dollars. Again please support your local hobby shop if possible and let's make this Proxy a success.

I will attempt to get a list of rules together for this proxy this weekend and please provide feedback... Let's get this going!!! If you are interested in participating, please let me know asap as there will be a limit of cars allowed and also if you want to host, please give details of your track and location. I hope to get at least 10 tracks or more if that is possible. :text-thankyouyellow: :text-thankyouyellow: :banana-dance: :banana-dance:
