I'm running the foam bumper and "long-arm" set up on mine, aside from that, my car is box-stock.

For the long arm set-up you'll need, the front "H" brace. You remove the center spar of the brace, and mount the two remaining tabs on the suspension arms, the caster blocks then mount to the ears just inside of the front arms.

at first i was against running 13.5 blinky.... too slow!! but now running 13.5 blinky makes the class more challenging and levels out the playing field to who is a better/consistent driver with the correct set up and corner speed!!!!! and not just relying on top end speed. (and living in the NW we have some of the fastest drivers to practice against)

this year the WGT class has doubled and is the most popular class at my track.... and its still growing!

good job roar
We only have a dozen 10th pans right now. It is slowly growing, but just giving them that speed made the class much more exciting and has drawn the interest of a few new people. I know close stock spec racing is fun, but too much comes down to motor, battery , esc setup and tuning , while open class is all about driver and speed handling.

to be competitive in your mod/ 2s class don't you need a good motor of the week, esc, battery, set up and tuning? oh yeah don't forget extra parts due to the higher speeds being achieved and the crashes/accidents due to the inexperience level

this is a debate that i don't want to extend on.. glad you guys are running pan cars!

BACK TO THE SUBJECT..... Hi Dumper!!!!

I bought it from a guy hear on the forum. It already has these mods done to it so I should be set. I still am not sure what motor to get. I will be running blinky 13.5 and I use a Tekin RS speedo. How do the Tekin motors perform onroad? I use Tekin motors and speedos in my SC truck and Losi 22 buggy so I would like to use the Tekin but not sure.

with 13.5 blinky any speedo will do. it all comes down to personal preference but tekin are good

i have owned a 13.5 tekin motor and hated it! and i have tried allot of different motors. so far the motor of the month seems to be the revtech.... AND WOW ITS AWESOME! great on the low end and top. runs very efficient and its definitely the best motor i have owed so far (was that a shameless plus )

I ran Tekin motors in the past, and they are very good. But, like was stated already the ReVtech stuff is really strong, especially in a blinky class. You may also want to look at Team Powers "plutonium" motors. Also very strong motors for blinky.

Not wanting to start any debate , but we are experienced racers and if I had to run 17.5 or 13.5 blinky, in 12th I would find another class. Too slow.

17.5 is way slow like being in a Iron Maiden and 13.5 is like a tease being just under modified

He meant this:

http://www.teamcrc.com/crc/modules.p...prodID=7718958

Because this brace was originally sized narrower to fit a 1/12th scale car, you cut out the cross-brace between the two mounting pads. Works great!

Is this a decent 13.5 for running blinky class? I also was offered a Novak SS. Which motor is better for a small track. It's going in a Gen x-10LE.

That motor is quite good but if this is your first venture into this class, any motor will do till you get accustomed to a pan cars driving characteristics. They are extremely direct, especially on carpet. Took me a little while coming from rubber TC. I think I am now starting to get a handle on it after about a year of playing around with my WGT.

For blinky, advance the timing on that Team Powers 13.5 motor as far as it will go.

FYI...The newest Team Powers motors advance another few degrees.
