That foam bumper would be most effective by hanging out over the front of the carbon fiber bumper plate by no less than 1/8". That will allow it to absorb the force of an initial hit in a shunt. With it placed behind the leading edge of the CF bumper, you might as well not use anything. And those CF bumper plates cost bucks...LOL
Cheers!

With all the weight in the car you only want .01" gap.

If your track is low bite you can get away with a bit more gap, but it's a very sensitive adjustment with this set up. Also check to make sure the chassis is sitting level from right to left.

Nope- I'm going back to the way I orginally had it- just like what SG1 had.There are no local track to test on close. the closest is 3 1/2 hours away. Next race is Minregg on the birds track layout before the birds race.

Wow! 3-1/2 hours away...You are dedicated!

So, you are running on carpet...With those white springs all around, I was thinking you were on low traction asphalt (outdoors). On good carpet, my typical initial springs are #50-55 1/12th springs in front, reds in rear and red center spring.

FYI...My closest carpet track is 6 hours...<cry>

For those who asked about track size, layout, and grip I ran at, here's a link to the main run:

Forward to approx. 31 minutes in, that's the start of the main.
I'm the pretty all yellow Parma body

Convert back to SG1 picture. No I've been running carpet last race and the next two races.I assummed that this was a carpet set-up. I ran the last race with Big Baby blacks .24 up front , 3500 on the tubes and in the center shock(45) and sides and 17# center spring. The only difference on a low traction(asphalt) track was the red springs center shock and sides.20,00 in the tubes

Gentlemen,
Thanks for the awesome info on the CRC pan cars. I recently bought a CRC WGT car from this site. I thought I knew which one it was, but now I'm not sure. I haven't posted enough to insert a pic (according to the site). A pic of the car is an album on my page.
Any suggestions on hopups?
Thanks,
Scott

If the battery mounts from the bottom it is a GenX10. If it mounts from the top it is an LE.
