Hi mate, I measured my car from yesterday's meeting at Ardent, and it was actually running at 196mm (with Jaco rims). I must of set the rear width with Corally rims (or something similar) when I built it, so the offset is obviously differant with the Jaco's. Have n't tried the car with CRC rims yet though. Cheers, Chris.

one thing to note is that the crc/bsr rims are 2mm wider per tyre than the jacos.

also updated my blog with a small part about yesterdays race

Nice Blog
But just to be clear, the width of the Jaco and CRC/BSR tires are the same, it is the offset on the wheel that is different, no ?

Things are a lot more expensive here, but a lot is not the shops fault but importers and then the cost of rent for a hobby shop, even a small one is around 5-6 grand a month. That's a lot of Rc gear just for rent.
Strange thing is prices are the same when the Aus $ was worth 52c u.s now it's worth double that but Rc gear is still the same price.
And fuel has gone up $1.50 plus a liter, close to $6 a gallon.
Still aus is a top place to live.
Enough of my dribble, looking at a new body for the Le, what's the Sophia GT like ??
Sounds like I will be staying in one star hotels.

I definitely prefer the ProtoForm Sophia over the Parma Aston Martin. Still awaiting CRC to produce a WGT body (Mercedes?).

Cheers!

Bill

CRC/BSR rims are also 1mm taller than Jacos. Have not seen any Jacos WGT wheels/tires produced recently; whereas, CRC/BSR mounted tires are easily available.

Measured my CRC/BSR and Jaco WGT rims...again.

CRC/BSR front rims are 29mm wide by 49mm diameter.
Jaco front rims are 29mm wide by 48mm diameter.

CRC/BSR rear rims are 52mm wide by 49mm diameter.
Jaco rear rims are 50mm wide by 48mm diameter.

Offsets from the inner side of the rim to the flat surface of the inner bearing holder seem to be about the same at 12mmą for the fronts and 14mmą for the rears. With no other changes, a CRC/BSR setup will always be 4mm wider in the rear than a Jaco setup. Front should be similar.

Thanks Bill.
Like you say, can't find Jaco WGT wheels anywhere, so wasn't sure of the specs.

Only good Jaco WGTs were the original front/rears with the carbon fiber pattern on the rims. They were killer because you could true the tires down a mm further than the CRC/BSR sets.

Jaco's newer fronts (last year's spec tire for the Asphalt Nats) with the wide bands of yellow foam on the inside were pathetic; but, the matching rears were fine. Jaco just made the way soft yellow bands too wide which took away a good deal of steering.

CRC/BSR mounted spec foams are the best available for true WGT racing.

hi,

just to get some idea of sizes for the rear hubs can people measure theirs and post up the results? Need to measure like below:



Mine came in at 19.1mm. Would be interesting to find out what LE owners measure at.

Cheers

I agree with 19.1 and 22.9.

Have had both versions of the Gen-X 10 and do not remember a dimensional difference in their axles or left/right hubs since my first car.

What are you looking for in this comparison? If you want something slightly different, try contacting Dave Irrgang at IRS Racing.

At the race on sunday we came across two recently delivered GENX10 LEs that when we did the same measurement on their hub it came in at roughly 17.6mm.

Sounds like that is measured to the back side of one side that was checked. You only mention one hub. What about the other hub on the other side?

What was the overall width of the rear of the car and what rear tires did it have on it?

Bill
