I just wish Black Art would do an ALMS M3.............
If it's out soon enough I will have one at the Cleveland Champs for sure. You would have to watch the lowest mains to see it though

Default Speed Passion - Competition V3.0 1 Cell Motor - 10.5R

Hi,

this year we will have rule that will allow use of 1S LiPo with 10.5T motors (until now only 2S with 17.5T).

Does SP Competition V3.0 1 Cell motor have some advantage over others? Or there is some better ones suitable for 1S setup.

ESC will be HW 120A 1S edition. Maybe someone have experience with it in WGT on 1S LiPo and can share some?

Thank you!

Hi folks,
On the assembly manual of the gen x10, on the rear axle, there's a part call the diff spacer. It is a red anodized color spacer that goes on the axle after the Flange bearing and before the spring washer.

It appear this part induce pressure on to the inner race of the flange bearing when the nylon diff nut is tighten. I was wondering if any of you have replace this diff spacer with a thrust bearing and got positive result?
Because the thrust bearing would put the pressure onto the outer race of the flange bearing instead of the inner race, therefore, would be more efficient.

Thanks

Thanks for all your setup advice guys. 1/12th kingpins & 55mm springs worked awesome, I beat my fastest lap time by 2 seconds tonight and hold the track record now It's a new club so it's not a big deal but we've had some fast WGT guys come out to the track so I'm stoked. Once I figure out why I don't have any brakes and true my tires down from 58mm, it's so ON

SlapMaster Tools sells thrust bearing conversions for Pancar differentials. They are very popular upgrades.

I use the Slapmaster Thrust Bearing Assembly on all of my pan cars. Check www.slapmastertools.com to get one. Has sized spacers for different makes/models of cars.

And you won't be servicing your diff so often...

Shhhhhh...About the performance...

Currently I'm running North/South, all the way forward. It has settled the car down, and greatly reduced the car's tendency to traction roll.

I bought my car used with the battery in the same position, I was told this exact quote. I haven't moved mine and I love the way the car feels compared to my 10R5

I just switched from 2 cell to 1 cell (N-S front position) with front side mount ESC & balanced left to right. handled great and no more traction rolling as I had with 2 cell. Going to try the ESC under the centre shock and see how that works for me. Chassis seemed to like the weight up front though.

Looking to buy a new kit to get into this class, but everyone seems to have them on backorder. Any idea when they will become available again?

Direct from CRC unless they are out as well. Guess that's a good sign for WGT, lots of Gen X 10 LE's sold Horizon lists late September. I know someone selling one in Ontario Canada Eh!


Just want to verify that the Gen XL & Gen X 10 LE share pretty much every part except the chassis right. What about the axle?? I was going to buy a Gen XL but now I want the speedmerchant conversion so it would probably just be cheaper to build off that with my spares and buy another rear pod I would assume.
