Thanks

Do you need the servo mount if you use the 9650 since it has the ears?

Yes to the 3315 flat servo mounts.

One thing to note is that the narrower 17402 plate gives you more steering than the 17403. Therefore, I have both mounting plates for tuning to the track.

Default flat servo

Have you ran the flat servo yet? Wondering what difference you noticed.

Default Help

Ok guys I need a lot of help. This is my first pancar and I am really unfamiliar with these cars. I built the car per the book except I have white and center springs and grn side springs. Heres my problem, My front ride height is huge, like almost 9mm. I have not cut the tires yet but if I cut them to 55 will this reduce the ride height to where it needs to be? At this moment I am really lost.

Obviously you want to go from 9mm to 4mm ride height...A difference of 5mm.

Go to Page 8 of the manual and look at Item #61, the Plastic Ride Height Spacer. If not already done, install the #5 spacer (the tallest one of the three) under the Lower Arm to get rid of some of the height.

If the front tires start at approximately 62mm and you cut them to 55mm, you will decrease the height by another 3.5mm. For asphalt, I typically cut to 56mm. For carpet, I cut to 53mm (or lower for important races).

For additional ride height reduction and fine tuning, I use the CRC #4262 Optional Front End Shims.

And after a run or two (on any surface), the left side tires are exchanged for the right side tires to keep side-to-side wear even.

I do not understand your sentence about the springs. Does not seem correct; but, I don't know what surface you are setting up for.

Hi,

ordered new LE from amain with some spare parts. There is new CRC 64P "16 Ball" Spur Gear in parts. Is there any changes with diff balls? Have they different diameter than previous diff balls?

Hi,

Yeah the new spurs use 3/32inch balls instead of 1/8inch balls.
Yet to try them myself.

When you run 56mm tires what gearing do you run for a 13.5 non/boosted?

All 3 of my CRC cars have the 16-ball spurs gears installed. 88T on WGT cars and 76T on Xi. Super smooth.

With a Duo 1 motor set to its most advanced timing, I believe my rollout for asphalt was 76-78.

I have the reversed and flat servo parts on both of my LE WGTs. With the servo flat, the center of gavity is lowered significantly in the front of the car which lessens its tendency to traction roll on higher grip surfaces allowing me to run more front camber for increased cornering speeds. A total win.

What good 3/32inch diff balls would you suggest to buy? I am assuming that with this setup I have to use normal diff rings not lightened ones?

CRC have to correct manual for LE. Diff assembly instruction still states about 1/8" diff balls...

Have ordered CRC bearings. But I am from EU and it takes quiet long to ship them here. So is there any good bearings here in EU?

I already see that my Hobbywing 120A 1S ESC will not stay long in my LE chassis...

So my old Tekin RS Pro will go in. What good booster you can suggest to get?
