Yup! But< I get the blank version (with no holes) and custom drill it.

A bit tricky to get the holes uniform for equal steering though.

Looking for a WGT setup for high bite asphalt for the LE chassis with standard servo setup. 1s Battery in forward position, receiver, tekin esc mounted in the back.

Currently have tires cut at 55mm.

Here is what I basically have used for club racing at Nor-Cal Hobbies on their high traction asphalt track.

For the Asphalt Nats, we ran spec tires at about 51.5-52.0mm sizing for our best lap times. Car finished 5th overall at the Nats...with me driving...LOL

Got to try the new CRC front end parts yesterday.
HOLY CRAP they are awesome! Changed nothing else on the car since last week and it was a million times better. The car felt so positive and precise going into the corner and really quick direction changes.

Will do a full write up on my blog later.

Can someone explain the effect of rear drop, on this car to me.

More so as to how it changes the cars handling.

Also is there a setup guide for these cars or 1/12 pan cars

Thanks

I noted that WGT is only offered as NT (No timing); so, I will probably pass. We are doing 13.5 timed at Nor-Cal and I generally like the higher speeds.

Besides...Crashby owns me in WGT NT...LOL

Hmmmmmmm...Is there a CRC team driver in SoCal?

Bill

13.5 blinky WGT is quick on our 90x45 rug.
We run the same laps as 12th blinky, mid 10s

No CRC Team drivas down here that I know of, but plenty of CRC cars of course.
