I've asked this before, but nobody seems to know. Thought I'd throw it out there once more.

CRC World GT Mercedes body, is it EVER coming out or is this body just a myth perpetuated by RCTECH rumours, never to come to fruition?? Dig the Sophia, and so does Ingo, Len, Bill, Dave............

I would love to come back to the TimeZone GP, but it is not up to me if I can make it or not.

Black Art will be making the Mercedes WGT body, not CRC. We are just the importer. We have a standing order for alot of them. When Black Art decides to release it, then we will have it.

Cool, thanks for the heads up Dumper. I have a feeling it's going to be awesome.

I asked about the long arm install but figured it out. A few pics are attached. Simply cut the center of the #3277 brace out. These also show #3230 roll center kit installed to raise the hinge pin.

Fine as you show for asphalt; but, if that is for carpet racing, you may want a cross brace too.

Gonna start by saying that I am currently using the complete Mckune front end kit parts on my LE; so, my front end is about 200mm wide.

As far as I know, the only braces for the wide front end are the Troy Mckune and Manutech units.

I know the Mckune top braces (in two sizes) fit for the widest settings with both standard and long arms; but, not completely sure about the Manutechs (because I have two different units but only see one listed on their website).

You can equal the Mckune's width by using the CRC #1740 Front End Mounting Plates from the original Gen-X 10 kit. Not as nice a solution; but, still quite workable.

FYI...I get Mckune parts directly from Troy's website.

Default Slapmaster Diff Thrust Bearing for 16-ball spur gear

Not sure how many have tried CRC's new 16-ball spur gears; but, I really like having one on my LE (and XL). The diff action is smoother with the extra 4 balls.

One problem is that the balls are smaller (3/32") which moves the right hub inward a tad and can affect your ability to correctly adjust the diff nut without bottoming out on the axle's threads.

Brian Bodine of Slapmaster to the rescue...

Brian pointed out to me that his #109 Diff Thrust Bearing (originally made for the 12R5) has a wide enough machined spacer to eliminate any chance of bottoming out. And he's right! So, the problem is solved and I love the smooth action of the extra balls in combination with the Slapmaster.

And Brian even calculated that 16 of the 3/32" balls weigh about half that of having 12 of the 1/8" balls; so, less rotating weight...LOL

Thanks Brian.

Bill

or you can slide a few rear axle shims on between the outer diff bearing and the supplied red spacer. this pushes the spacer out so that there is no way of bottoming out on the threads. this is standard on every diff that i build.

i dont always run thrust bearings in my diff.........but when i do, i run slapmaster.

lol.

Default Will Airtonics 94761 servo fit

Is the servo mounting plate slots long enough to mount the smaller Airtonics 94761 without grinding?

Bill; thanks for the report!

I have apparently LOL The manual says the diff balls are 1/8" in my LE kit when actually they are 3/32". So now I have a bag of 100 1/8" balls. crap.

My chassis turned out nice, just a few more pieces to finish. PIMP my Gen X
