These 1/10 WGT runs on 2s or 1s? If 2s, is the regular 1/10 touring car lipo?

Thanks.

Just getting the electronics mounted in the car. Gotta say, the car looks really impressive, I like the rack system, looks really familiar.....I like how it is mounted, if you shim under the front suspension plate to adjust ride height, it will not effect bump steer geometry or toe.

Hopefully get it on the track on the 4th for its first shake down, is there a good starting set-up out there for the car? Will be running 10.5 blinky on med to low traction. (been over a year since ive run WGT, cant remember set up)

Received the kit on Saturday, and about 80% done building it. So far, it's looking really nice. It's my first pan car, so wasn't sure what to expect. The steering rack is pretty slick; I was worried about how it would feel, but it's smooth and solid.

The fit and finish is overall really nice. The manual is pretty good; I've found some typos and things that could be more clear, and will be trying to get that feedback back to someone at Roche, but it hasn't really held me back.

Would really love to see some setups other than the one you get building the kit per instructions. Next race is in two weeks, plan to have it on the carpet then.

Cheers!
Robert
