I have enjoyed cruising this thread for a while now

Thank you for all the info.
Mr Bill should have a good setup for you
And, he has run his CRC at TQRC

And do use the #40194 - Hard Anodized T-Bar (center pivot) Balls and the #13616 - Hard Anodized side link balls (low roll center) for their smooth action (and durability) on all types of tracks.
I have 13616 because original is easily broken and last week i bought 40194 because my original center pivot hasnīt the same shape...

One question... If you will buy a new crc what optional parts you will change?


THANKS and regards

Default Showing CRC some lovin'

Hey guys just wanted to share this.

Mid last month I bought a new Gen-X10LE to add to my collection of CRC cars, my first WGT. As I was putting it together a ran into a problem, the side links included weren't long enough. I emailed John at CRC and included a picture of the links. I received a quick reply from John telling me that they were shipping out new links right away.

Today I received the links, not just one set but two! I really wasn't expecting this, I would have been happy with just the single set. This is a big deal for me, and it really shows that CRC are committed to keeping their customers happy.

Thanks John and everyone at CRC!!!

Hi Spencer,

I have run my CRC Gen-X 10 LE's on both carpet (TQ, NorCal Hobbies, Carpet Nats, IIC) using either the CRC/BSR or Jaco Spec Tires (lilacs) without issue.

For asphalt, I have been able to use the same WGT spec tires most of the time. Suggest that you stay with these tires on asphalt; unless, for a low traction situation, you need to go with softer compounds.

The class of WGT is based on everyone using the recognized spec tires. But, some people at various tracks use other compounds out of necessity...like low traction asphalt.

See Dave Berger at TQ for help with getting yourself up to speed using WGT spec tires. Dave is 'da man' at TQ with his WGT...Even if he drives the other car...LOL

Bill

Rears: usually red or white for carpet and asphalt

I picked up the CRC Gen-X 10 LE kit last week (Wednesday). Put it together for me to run WGT class at Nats. Get to Nats on Wednesday to practice with this. We got rained out for practice. I have never driven a WGT car. People told me it is like driving the F-1 cars. But more controllable. Well I had problems with the car spinning out or traction rolling. Friday and Saturday, same problems. Till Saturday a Bullfrog(Bill Fraden) in shining armor came to my rescue.( NO HOMO ) He was in the same class as me (WGT). He went through my car. We found a lot of problems. He help fix them and even gave me some pointers. Get this I was 7th in qualifying and ended up finishing out in 4th(A main). This was my first ever Nats. I even beat Bill the nice guy that helped me fix my car. I guess every dog has his day. So everyone out there if you ever get a chance to run at a big event do it. It is fun and great. Also there are people there that will take the time to help you fix your car and get the bugs worked out of it. Sorry Bullfrog that my bugs hoped from my car to yours in the finals. But thank you for getting me to be more competitive in the finals and also your great help. Oh yeah I think this is going to be my new favorite class next to F-1 and VTA.

Glad to see new people picking up this great car! We just had a 9 car class this last weekend for WGT.

One thing I have learned in running mine these last few months is the importance of good batteries! Don't skimp.

No problem with the help- looking back now it was fun helping you get your car right. As for those bugs in my car that's racing. I'll see you at a race real soon. Have fun.
