Sanded and sealed graphite last night. Almost completed putting everything together until the diff portion. The diff balls are smaller than what I normally use. I am using an 84 kimbrough spur for this local class I plan on running. I will have to wait til Friday to check if the local hobby store has some diff balls.

Must be running spec 175 gt. Yeah you will need some 1/8th diff balls. Pretty much every shop should have those. Get some ceramics if they have them.

The 88T CRC spur that comes with the car would be my first choice. Sounds like you have the latest version that uses 16 each 3/32" balls. Can be much smoother when you build it per the instructions.

I did like Kimbrough spurs in some other cars I have had; but, the CRC spurs are excellent!

But, if I were running my WGT on a particularly dirty outdoor track, the Kimbrough spurs would be a good alternative because you can add their optional dust covers.

He can't. Spec 175 GT has a gear rule and mandates a Kimbrough 84 spur.

It seems to mainly be a Florida class. They are running it at the birds this year. It's basically WGT but with 17.5s, a different body list (HPI vettes, 911s, Lexus ISF, Viper, Protoform Camaro, LFA, etc.) and a gear rule. It's pretty fun. I run it at Jeff's RC studio in Fort Meyers, FL. Looks like he's in Jacksonville so I guess he's running it up north somewhere.

rcgen, you coming to minnreg on the 11th?

Spec 175GT is the class this car was built for and will be using it for WGT for our State series FSEARA here in Florida. That's why I went again and tried to put the 84 spur, so it will be just a matter of a motor swap.

I'll be in Minnreg for the FSEARA race and will be running both Spec 175GT and WGT. I'll be running oval too.

Bill,

I will have both my WGT and Spec 175GT cars with an 84 spur so it not be a problem. I just didn't have enough diff balls for to complete it yesterday. I will try to stop by FLRCOutlet tomorrow so you can see the car. I will diffently be at Strickland on Sunday for WGT running the R5 maybe test drive SE too. I still have the your bodies and ended up getting a Gianna. I am still looking for a Spec 175 GT body, there none locally.

Oh I looked back and looked at some of the posted pictures and noticed the links were inboard with the springs outboard. The opposite of the manually. What's the difference? Also, there is no graphite piece for the frontend that connects the two top arms.
