Thanks,
Carter, who is waiting for the LE conversion.
depens on your car. the early versions had taller stand offs for 2s lipos. if you car has these you may not need to. the reason that the encore needing to be flatter is because the ball cup hits the hex portion of the ball stud. that is what you need to look for.

The conversions are in stock! I just packed up a ton of them. Part #1713. If they are not on the website yet, you can call us and order one. I am off to TimeZone, so I am leaving in a few minutes to catch a plane, but there are people here to take your order.

In Vegas, I ran stock 30 wt oil (that is all we run 10th or 12th all the time) and I ended up with a CRC purple spring. I tried CRC red, green and purple, and ended up staying with the purple.

I am going to be testing some setups at TimeZone this week, if I come up with anything new I will be sure to post it on here.

Thanks for the support guys, we are trying to keep you guys as fast as possible!

Default Minimun front tire diameter

Is there a minimum front tire diameter where performance starts to suffer?

Thanks,
Carter

Pretty much the same for me as long as the traction is high. Run them to the rim.

However, if traction is not high, you would want some amount of foam on the rim available for traction compound. Can say...less traction...more foam.

Rim diameters can vary slightly between manufacturers, so one brand cut to a certain size may have a tad more or less foam than another brand.

Anyone running the McKune Chassis with the CRC Encore Shock? I need to know how the rear top battery brace is mounted?

Are the mount holes closer to the rear pod or closer towards the front of the car?

Need to have the holes mounted towards the rear pod. Use the second hole or the furthest one away to get the shock to have the correct amount of droop.

To make sure the shock cap clears on compression I put an additional 1mm washer under the pivot ball (CRC13615). On the pod end I used a red ball stud (CRC1409) and the locknut used on the 12th scale.

Have tried running the Green and Purple springs and found them to have a tonne of steering.

So how many others run these with 2-cell Lipo? Running it with a 13.5 and turbo is wicked fun

We just had a good race meet with a handful of pans on our large asphalt track. The car drove fantastic considering i'm new to pan. Our lap times are almost the same as the touring cars we used to drive, and we've only been running pan for a few months. The car was on rails, powering up while still coming out of the corner was no problem.

Does anyone know if the rear pod loaded with a brushless motor is balanced left-to-right? I have the whole chassis balanced, but want to make sure i'm not counter-tweaking the front to make up for an imbalance on the pod. I don't have scales, so it's screws and the old eye-ometer to set my balance

Yes,

To run the Encore shock on the Mckune Chassis turn the shock mount plate around. The two hole should now be toward the rear. Mount a pivot ball (Same as side links) in the front hole.

I will post some pictures soon.
