You will find that sealing the front with a pan will make the car quicker on the straight, although the pan is crash sensitive. Ground effects tunnels will add noticeable drag, but also a lot of down force. Best to just dodge the bumps unless you want to go full front suspension.

And yes they work VERY well. But idk if theyd work so well in a pan car shell. Considering the reason those shells are high downforce is because its essentially just one big diffuser.

I have used Xceed TF-1 additive with Xceed pro10/WGT tires and Enetti/Shepherd tires , more or less the same as others, very similar to Robitronic Grip Master or CS-Electronic High Grip.

i still wait for tf-3 ...
TF-2 is for high traction carpet tracks to let your tires not gum up and get sticky. Less traction roll etc etc.

tf-3 looks good, 45 minutes and lilacs become nice ;-) (bsr spec tires).

I have P908 235 body on my 235 pancar
when I get to the last 1/5th of our straight the chassie touches the track so I hade to raise the rideheght way up... I am not sure but it is somewhere around 10mm.

Can I take the ride height down and still not touch the track? harder spring on the damper? how about traction? guessing I'll loose some with harder spring?

what do I do?
car: Lajf Racing widened Xray X10
motor 4T

springs are all X10 originals
tires are 57mm tall in the rear.

Thanks!

Put a nitro fuel line on the outside of the piston or another idea someone found is to use caster clips that nitro 1/8 use to set caster on the front. Then you can use a normal spring that fits with your setup without having to worry about scraping the ground.

Set normal ride height and make the fuel line/caster clips on the piston in such a way that the chassis stops at 2mm or so above the ground. Works really well. I only use a fuel line but caster clips might work easier as you can remove or add the clips without having to remove the ballcup and spring.

We found that a tc shock works much better in 2s lipo application then the 1/12th shock that comes with the WGT cars.

Ahh, yes a limiter inside the damper on the piston, that's a good idea.

I might also try to get a TC-shock.

Thanks!

Just to be sure (as you write inside of the damper) It is not inside the shock but on the piston that is on the outside of the shock.

See the small piece of nitro fuel line on the centershock, just under the ballcup.
