Thanks, I'm going to try running it on carpet since it's setup for that currently and see how I like it. But I really want this thing to rip outside LOL

two questions...1) can I run LiPo with a Sphere TC (I would be running an LRP X11 13.5 motor) 2) what would be a good but not overly expensive 1S LiPo to invest in?

Having trouble with to much front end bite on carpet. I am only saucing 1/8th of the front tire.

What can i change to take away alittle of the traction i am getting.

I am running the 10*blocks up front with 2 shims in rear, 1 in the front. Running 1/10 scale kingpins with purple springs. I have red springs on the rear with a 17.5 center spring(touring shock).

Check out Dumpers set up on the CRC site. One thing to change is 1/12th kingpins with #50 springs up front. Put all three of your shims in back. Check your camber, probably no more than -1 degree is needed. This is using WGT tires. Hope this helps.

Must have good traction at your carpet track. What is your camber?

Absolutely!! But the shims change may not be needed after finding the right camber.

Depends on your competition...

The Pantoura was pre-lipo packs and brushless motors. It is in no way a state-of-the-art car. But, I am jealous that you have one.

The chassis of both Gen-X 10 Pro/LE versions nicely handle lipo packs while the offset of the rear pod is balanced for a heavier brushless motor.

IMO...An LE is the obvious choice for WGT. My lap times improved one to two tenths after upgrading my Pro to the LE. Last time I looked, Ampdraw was selling the LE conversion kit for only $65.

I'd go with the LE. I switched from an XRAY X10 to the LE. Easy to set up and drive, plus lots of help if needed. I wish I would have got this in the first place. Didn't want to feel like a basher.

I snagged it back before LiPo went big. I was saving for a NiMH charger because I had a couple sets of 3700 and 4200 batts I could turn into packs but then 1S LiPo became the standard and so that meant back to square one for me. Are there a lot of LEs on the for sale boards here or would EBay be a better option for finding a used one?

This set-up works real good at my local track!
