Finally got around to pulling the used LE apart...lots of stripped screw heads.

There is also a Kimbrough 78t 48p spur on here. I dont have spare CRC ones (yet), so whats a good gearing to get started with?
Going to be running 13.5, 1s, non-boosted.

Thanks

What size of a track? How big are your tires? Any hot blondes in your area? Things we need to know to help you out

If this is for RC Addictz, I would start about with rollout ~ 3.15in(80mm). That's what I'm going to start with when I finish putting mine together.

Default question

I am new to 1/10th pancar and running the WGT class. I having an issue with the car and can not figure it out. When I come around some corners the front and rear want to trade places. Track type is asphalt.

I have glued the front tires, I am running green springs upfront, white center with 35 losi oil, I have shorted the shock length to remove droop, green rear springs, not sure whats in the rear tubes. Running 1 1/2 camber, wgt, sohpia body, ride weight is 4.5 all around.

I have checked the car for tweek, and recut the tires.

Any suggestions.

Yup it is. Thanks.

Glad to see another one is going to come play.

WGT to me means 13.5 boosted. Is that how you are running the car?

If so, is everyone else able to run WGT spec tires without issue?

How much traction is available on that asphalt? Is it sealed (lower traction)? Is it smooth without bumps? With bumps, you want some droop at the rear pod.

On Nor-Cal Hobby's smooth asphalt track with good traction, my LE's springs are usually red/blue/red (front to rear).

Try putting 10,000-15,000 wt lube in those rear tubes and Losi 30 wt oil in the center shock.

Put a "safety bead" of glue on the rear tires too. A "safety bead" covers the edge of the rim and spreads over to the first 1/16" of the foam. Prevents chunking the sidewalls.

I run the CRC 88T 64P spur for both non-boosted and boosted on all asphalt and carpet tracks. You can get it with either 12 (standard) or 16 (optional) diff balls.

But, if you run on a track that is not really clean, the 48P spur can make sense. Kimbrough also makes optional spur gear covers that can help keep the grit out for outdoor.

Thanks for the info Bill.
Its a new indoor track, with brand new CRC carpet, so its pretty clean. I prefer 64p for indoor, just don't have any spares yes and wanted to at least get this thing moving. I have lots of 45 (64p) and under pinions from my old TC days, just need the spur to match.

the class is non boosted. The track is smooth with great traction. No one else seems to have problems with traction. I was going to change my king pins to the 1/12 pin but I had another question. The stock kit came with a conical shaped front spring but it appears all the after markets are not tapered, do you have to change anything besides the king pin?

You will need 1/12th springs to go with those kingpins. Try CRC 50 or 55 springs.

But those are 1/12th bodies ! I was referring to 1/10th Pan Cars.
