By the way, most of the time my tires will cone out, so don't be alarmed if you are one of those guys that puts 25 runs on a set before squaring them.

The best thing about the crc front end is that you can adjust camber on the fly. You will see us do this quite a bit.

ATCOM - the "LE" stands for lipo edition. The chassis is the main difference. 1s or 2s it allows you to run the battery up the center, forward or back or sideways across the back (1s only). you will need some extra parts to run the pack sideways. the front end brace is also a bit simplified, and also included, where on the pro the front end brace is optional.

the pro comes with interchangeable battery trays that allow you to run round cells as well as lipo. but they both have to run up the center. the pro battery goes in and out from the bottom, the le comes in from the top.

unless you are planning on running round cells, go with the le, there is a reason that they released it.

hope that helps.

Softer front springs, more traction wash on front tires or less on rear or both. more camber.

I'm going to run this on an outdoor track (Kissimmee Raceway), I'm looking forward to it!

never ran a pan car before so this should be fun.

Excellent! Never had a Gen-XL; so, the Tuning Guide in its assembly manual had escaped me.

Had a nice guide that came out of the UK; but, this is truly concise...in only three pages.

Is this a prerequisite to Dumper's Speed Shop?

Hi Tim,

Please start with some information on your current setup.

Motor/battery configuration?

How much caster are you using? Caster (via spacers) and dynamic caster.

What body?

Spec tires? Sizes?

Cheers!

Bill

Atcom,

If you are planning to race per ROAR rules (13.5 1S battery), the LE is THE car. If you want to play with a 'speed demon' that can be used as either 200mm (2S battery) or 235mm (CanAm), the PRO might be your cup of tea.

Bill
