Ditto on the LFA. I already have been running it.

The Trackstar Gen II 120 ESC is a very good choice. As mentioned, get the right program card. I've run them since they were approved. I've had them in my WGT, 12th, GT12 and in an F1 car to try it out. I've run Justocks in my 21.5 F1s for a couple years, but they are not designed for low voltage use and it's surprising that others are getting it to work. More power to those who got it working.

It's not on the list as it was discontinued. Sad cause I have one.

the Hobbywing Justock (past or present versions) is not designed or advertised to work on 1s alone. Some people have got it to work for some time, but we have seen them eventually have problems.

Save yourself the DNF and install your Justock with the Hobbywing Booster and you will have a dialed, competitive setup that can win any race and run dependably week in and week out.

This setup is what I run in my car as it comes in at $100 cheaper than the V3.1 setup.

I will admit that I have been too lazy to go back and review the World GT-R rules to get my answer. I recall a recent rules change with Spec175GT and they aren't alliwing boosters, receiver packs, etc. Just wanted to make sure that the HW Justock with booster was legal here.

from the rules:
Speed Control – Any ROAR approved spec class (blinky) speed control in “blinky” mode. NO RECEIVER PACKS. You may use a specific 1 cell speed control, or a two cell speed control with an external booster. Stock 2 or 4 cap banks that come with the ESC's only. There will be a limit of 10,000 micro farad on cap banks.

Rules have been amended to allow 2s esc's with boosters. Receiver packs still not allowed.

Seems to me that the body selection just makes another GT sedan car that resembles GT10 ,, except its 2 wheel drive on F! type tires .. WGT on rubber tires is fun to drive and cost efficent I just hate to see more sedan gt bodies on a WGT, and anything under a 13.5 in a WGT is a waist of a good car ...

my 1cent .rant ...

http://www.hpiracing.com/en/part/17544 - Alpha Romeo 8C Competizione IS the Protoform Sophia. And a nice looking one at that.

Kyosho makes an Astin Martin DB9 to match the Parma DB9.

The Protoform Mulsanne I believe was modeled after the Porche GT1 from the 1998 Le Mans winning car, even though it still not legal in either class.

So the WGT bodies are out there, just looking more like themselves.

The 8c is NOT a race car, and should therefore be disallowed. The Sophia never met the rules for the original WGT class, and should be banned from GTR as well.

The "mulsanne" should be legal, according to these rules. It is modelled after a real racecar. If HPI's Porsche GT1 is legal, how do you deny the Mulsanne?

Picked up a Top to start racing this class, what would be a good starting gear ratio for 17.5?

Depending on the size of your track, around 38/96
