Hi,

I will try and do a comparison this weekend and get pictures.
I didn't do any measurements on the other hub as it would have meant dismantling the diff. I did notice that the plate on the axle where the diff sits was bigger but that is only a visual check, no measurements.
Their car came in a 198mm with CRC wheels and kit shims.
Many other GENX10s and older LEs came in at over 200mm with crc wheels and kit shims. I think after a bit of sanding on the wheels my car came in at 200.6mm which is illegal.

Still haven't a response from emailing CRC to see if there have been any changes in the parts.

I will just have to take a sander to sides of the wheels but it seems a bit silly considering the car was built for a 200mm series but when using CRC components all round it isnt legal

I love the CRC tyres, plus I have two sets of the control tyres now and don't want to have to splash out more!
Will see what the weekend brings.
Shame John or Frank hasn't responded to my emails as they should be able to put me right straight away

205mm is the shell, not the chassis

I ran my car with Jaco rims, and it was well under maximum width (196mm I think). anyway, can people post a couple of pics of their own cars on here, just to compare electronics installation, etc...

Here's mine:



Has anyone tried putting the LiPo either acorss the rear of the chassis, like the AE car? And if so, how was it?

Cheers,

Chris.

Per US ROAR rules, "205mm" is the overall maximum width dimension for WGT...that is for both shell and chassis.

With CRC WGT spec foams, my rear wheel width was between 200-201mm for the ROAR Carpet Nats at TimeZone II this year. You only had to be below the 205mm specification in the rule book.

Only mention of a "200mm" maximum in the ROAR rules applies to the width of the rear wing.

You may well run by different rules in the UK.

Cheers!

Bill

Hi there, I am new to 1:10 pan car and I have a few newbie questions:

I was wondering what shell is best to use for 1:10 pan car?

What are the settings for toe out in the front and front and rear ride height?

What is the best tire diameter for front and rear?

Thanks

Well I had a great days racing on sunday!!
Measured 3 hubs on the LEs that have been bought in the last month they were:

17.6mm
17.8mm
17.65mm

so something must have been changed!!!
Just wish CRC would tell us why and how to get our hands on the new parts as that we will make me legal for BRCA events!!

Hi Chris, would n't it be easier for the BRCA to reconise this as an 'official' problem and widen the max rear width rule to 202mm (or whatever it needs to be)? This would save a lot of hassle with cutting down rims, and then other non-CRC drivers could max their own axles out also so no advantage is given to anyone. Just a thought mate. Cheers, Chris.
