I've been told it depends on the grip levels and type of grip at the tracks.

The european events/tracks tend to be slightly more oily with regard to additive etc, whereas the US tracks seem to have higher levels of 'dry' grip.

I seem to recall Andy Moore used the latest car with transverse cells at the worlds.
You might find that longitudinal lipo's will be better on US tracks.

Oop's quite right, although he did have the cells across.

You kidding, I am rockin Depends. ETA; Friday

Got word that there is a CRC conversion kit for the Xi. Don't know anything about it, but Dumper says its coming. So if you are sitting on an Xi, here's your chance to get caught up on the new hotness. Guess I will have to put pills back in my weekly pill box..... I can toss out all my rear ride height adjusters. How sweet is that gonna be!?!

I am going to spin you out so bad in practice, you will have to build a new GenXti. Don't think I wont!

Besides, Depends also come in a compression brief when discretion is a must. Been testing those out for a while.

You better pit by me in Vegas, I need someone to haul my trash off. My hip has been buggin' me something fierce.

Don't worry Mario, he probably won't remember any of this by the time you get to Vegas....

I'm curious as to how everyone ends up running the batts in the new CRC car. From a weight distribution perspective running it inline will put way too much weight up front. 1/12 and 1/10th pan cars always seem to drive better with a slight rear weight bias.

Im not surprised the car was run with transverse batts at the worlds. Very cool looking car though, the rear ride height adjustment system is great!

I'm quite sure that I will be putting my shorty packs in it so weight bias won't be an issue. Not sure what everyone else will be doing.
