Thanks, Mike

The TC5 front bumper also fits perfectly. I use one on my car with the Protoform 905B HD body. Just had to trim the front of the bumper to fit with the body.

Default 4 cell battery position

is there a consensus about which battery position is the most effective for those who choose to run a standard 4-cell NIMH pack in lieu of lipo? ie does the car work better with battery positioned full forward, full rearward, or one of the 2 possible intermediate positions? This will be the first week on track with my new ride, and it would be good to save a little time and to start out with the batterys located in their optimal position (or at least not on the wrong end of the range of available battery position choices).

The battery feels best to me in the middle, we run on a high bite indoor asphalt track right now, that may change on low bite, or on carpet.

Default Jaguar TWR XJR14 and Toyota TS010

Anyone seen these two bodies? Wondering if they could fit the Gen X10?

If they fit the corrally, then they will definately work with the CRC. They look real slippery, but, I am wondering how much downforce the rear wing would provide.

Those are 200mm chassis bodies and since the reference is to a general "Corally" car, then I suspect it is/was referring to the CCT and not the 10X or C10X. I've used earlier iterations of those bodies myself and the Achilles heel is the wing. Tumble once and they are damaged unless they are sturdy plastic.

I am using the foam bumper under the Protoform 905 High Downforce body. Needed to shave alittle off the top of the bumper on the leading edge to conform to the body shape.

If I can find some carbon fiber sheet in the victoria area, then I am going to make a new body/bumper mount for the front of the car. I will post some pics when I have it finished (next week sometime).
