Great place for a holiday, although many are scared off by the rather large earthquake we had!
The straight is all of that, but we usually use the cut-thur near the end as a hairpin, so not all of the straight. We've used it all before and it's awesome, but hairy getting around the big right-hand sweeper without winding up in the fence!
We run 13.5 in TC. It's the biggest class here, but then we only usually get 6-10 cars in each class, so not a huge club. Also, our South Island champs are on in November, date not yet confirmed.
PM me with when you may be coming, and what part of the country

e.g.

Fronts = 450g
Rears = 650g

Distribution
= 650 / ( 650 + 450 )
= 0.59
= 59% rear (so 59/41 split)

In theory you want as much weight at the back as possible, specially in low traction conditions. (the car still has to be in ballance in the corners though)

Too much weight and you will spin going into the corners, too little and you will spin going out. (in theory)

ofcourse there is still a lot of other factors.
thanks for you answer...
do you have any links to the theories? any place I can read up on it?

Can someone please tell me what shock I have on my Gex-X 10. It's the orignial model car, with a full size (i.e. touring) shock. It's dark grey metal with a metal threaded shock collar.
Jsut wanting to get a re-build kit and a few piston options if possible, as i've had the car 2 years and still on the original internals!

Wingman, nice looking car! We just started running a pan car night once a month at Debbies. So far only 3 WGT, but they're all CRC.

They're Losi JRX-S car shocks. Parts are still readily available for them, relatively cheaply, too.

Not sure what the original spring rate is, though. Anyone know?

Get the CRC Encore shock that comes with the LE to replace the Losi. You won't be sorry.

nothing against the encore shock, but 2 years between rebuilds is hard to improve. the jrx shocks were very nice hardware.

As I remember, my original Gen-X 10 came with a spring labeling sheet with a "30" on it. Same labeling that Losi used on my JRX-S's springs to indicate their rate. So, mine had a 30# spring. Others have previously posted that their Gen-X 10's came with labels indicating "25"; so, CRC may have made a change sometime in their production run of the older car.

Still recommend switching over to the CRC Encore shock for the old cars. Much easier to copy a current setup that should work on either chassis.

There is only the one necessary trick about sanding the flashing from the edges of the Losi piston while it is spinning in a Dremel. Before I did that, my original JRX-S shock was a loser. The Encore shock is a great build without doing such nonsense.

And 30 wt oil is a winner for either shock. Carpet or asphalt...no matter.

Sweet, i'll get the encore then. I have a set of VCS springs as my son uses an AE car.
It's not a loss as i'll use the Losi shock on my F109 as the factory 109 shock is....... average
