not sure what you mean by "As I go through the thread looks there has been a lot of advances that have brought all of the 1/10 pancar classes to were we are today. "

For 'birds, we cut our tires small - 2.1/2.0 rear/front - depending on tire brand.
hey man,

how's it hanging?

yeah, that setup should be dub'd the bd killer. that setup was a bullet out of the corner.

WGT is growing at RCMadness in enfield, CT. The other day we had 8 cars on the grid with Guys running 17.5/2C and 13.5/1C........ People are taking notice and the owner, Chris Marcy, is taking orders every week for new cars added to our WGT line up. I run The Speed Merchant and love it. Very easy to drive!!......... Can't wait for the next race!

Makes sense...I asked on the other thread if anybody runs the Corvette C6 (Ive been looking for one for the longest time for my Pantoura because I want to have a FIA GT1 looking car and the Sophia or its derivative doesnt run in that)

......though I don't have the rule book to guide me , I have a Rc 10L that I'd like to prep to run in WGT - eventually i to will be practicing at RcMadness -this thread is like another life line for me as build the car accordingly(ie. appropriate body w/in the proper weight parameters, and when applicabe, spec tires).....there's more to it than that, i'm sure but in the mean time , I like keeping up with this thread.

The title of this thread says otherwise...It is a dead topic because ROAR and major races have now spec'd the class to my thinking.

Just read McGoo's first post back in 2008 to find out its original intent.

I guess this is just semantics, but to my eye, the push to spec World GT failed. It's no different than any other carpet class, except that they also limited tire compound.

Are you guys finding a 17.5 2 C being equal to the 13.5 1C ?

When the 1s 13.5 cars are running Tekin software, the 2s 17.5 without software are about the same.

A lot of people who did not have Tekin speed controllers went to 2s to stay competitive and it worked out. They are also happier because they hated charging the receiver pack all the time .

It's interesting that people think the Tekin gives a BIG edge. We haven't seen that at our rather smallish track in 1/12 and WGT. I used an old GTB with a Booster and was as competitive as I am now with the Tekin and RX pack. Our Top Qualifier still uses a 4cell GTB and scores fastest laps and # of laps over Tekin equipped.

What we have found out is that good driving, a smooth line and learning to roll the throttle will increase the performance much more than buying a new ESC. BTW: One person showed up with an AE ESC and it was fast but didn't qualify as well as the GTB (can you say driver?).

Just throwing out my two cents.
