We run 2s in NZ, I believe they do in Aussie, and also in most of Europe. It's just you crazy yanks that decided to go to 1S, as I believe you weren't able to man-up to the power Just kidding, I know you guys got nukes
My lipo fit's fine, I have a Hitec225 servo, cheapie but works fine, and has the right off-set

I wish I could make it to that race, but after traveling south america, and a good chunk of the pacific rim last year, the wife is cracking down on me a bit. She wants the house renos done before I am allowed to continue traveling the world. Havnt been to europe yet, buts its on the list.

I have always felt that 1s racing was forced in by the 1/12th racers racing indoors (used to be 4cells), and they are also more verbal about what goes on.
But now the UK are launching an indoor series, with GT1 for 1s Modified, GT2 for 1s 10.5, and out of nowhere appears GT3 for 2s 17.5.

Unfortunately the launch of GT3 may have come too late for the UK as most of those who ran 2s have now sold their cars and gone back to Touring car, and others (like me) being forced to give up GT racing simply cos of no where to race it localy.
I have been trying to relaunch GT at my local with 2s 21.5 as this is similar speed to a 1s 10.5 set up outdoors on a open track (also similar speed to a 2s with a basic HPI Saturn 20T motor), but as yet no one appears interested

I have not given up hope, and still have my CRC cars
(if only I could get hold of that Xceleron 96mm 2s pack)

I use GP4300 packs. 2S2P, 4000Mah, 35C. Wayyyy more juice than I need for 13.5 on our large outdoor track.
I have tried my IP5000 40C, and also my SMC4100 30C, and don't feel the difference between them as we have such a large flowing track. Maybe if you had tigher tracks where you get more current draw there might be a difference.
Can't comment on 1S, never tried them, thank god

I use (when running car) a 4000 30C.
Tried a 5000 40C and found it a bit punchy and went slower.
These were with GM 120 ESC's
Not run the cars since I switched to Tekin.

As I previously posted in the Forum section on the CRC website:

For allen drivers:
.035" (included in LE kit) to drive 2-56 set screw stud into ball cup
.050"
.063" (1/16") for most screws
.078" (5/64") for front end camber adjustment
.093" (3/32") for rear wheel screws
2.5mm for motor mounting screws

For sockets:
3/16" (most nuts)
11/32" (rear axle/diff adjustment nut)

Hope this helps.

Bill

I have run the TrakPower 4900 35C batteries for 3 years without a problem, and they still have lots of rip. The club was running a Pro10 2S/10.5 class (which rocked Btw). This year we are switching to WGT rules, and I am using a SMC 5600 35C 1S cell. Honestly not looking forward to the WGT rules, but dont have much choice in the matter.

Cheers,
Shawn.

What kind of racing would you be doing? Makes a difference about what to recommend for your situation.

well i have my new gen-x le built and ready to go,if it stops raining
got a couple newb questions.
the side springs can be adjusted up and down,how are these generally set tension wise,do you wind them down till they just touch or are they adjusted with more tension ?

ball diff setup

i haven't touched a ball diff in about 6 years,when holding both tyres and then trying to turn the spur with your thumb,how hard do you try and turn it ?
that may sound strange but what is hard for one person may not be for another,or should it have pressure but still be turnable

thanks for any advice
