The CRC cars of newer generations (with slider pods) accept the CRC F1 pod plates and you add a set of 2.5mm to 3mm spacers to the front end and you have a rubber car.
Yes it was an SE but with those changes.
Several CRC prototypes also made that main I just missed with my CRC Gen-X, yes that was the original WGT chassis from CRC. All I did was add spacers to the pod plate and the front end.
The pod plates can be put on the older car but need top, bottom and the rear "X" brace (a entire pod).

Ahh. I thought I had heard that they work on 1s but I couldn't find any proof. Thanks for confirming that...

If you are willing to part with a few more bucks for a LOT more ESC, the Hobbywing 2.1 is still available from a bunch of sellers on Ebay, Amazon, that sort of thing. It's no motor limit, comes with a flat and a finned changeable heat sink, fan, sensor cable, and other goodies. It's only downside is that though its low-profile, it has a big footprint, but its a great ESC for WGT because the cars have the space on the chassis to fit almost anything.

EDIT: I forgot to note that the HW 2.1 has a very good internal 1s to 6v booster, no need for a receiver pack or external booster.

I still love those ESC's. The guy that won WGTR in Cleveland was using one.

I would pick up the LDC display programming box and that will set you back another $25-30 but comes with everything you need. It's not needed for club racing as there is a blinky setting in the ESC stock profile that you can change with the old hold-the-button-flashing-lights method, but ROAR rules say it needs the program referred to as the 508, which has no boosting settings and makes the light actually blink.

I'm making it sound more complex than it really is, Hobbywing has put some time into the user interface and it's all better explained by them. Still, no motor limit ESC with a fan, two heat sinks, programming box, and all that for under $100. I own three of these things.

I do not believe that is a 1 cell version

You're exactly right, I forgot that they made one that wasn't the 1S. The full name for the 1-2S:

XERUN-120A-1S-SD V2.1

As opposed to the 2-3S:

XERUN-120A-SD V2.1

It would specify. Thanks for catching that.

I've been running this little guy from Trackstar in my WGT and it has been working great. It has all the features of any other ESC and is under $50.
I highly recommend it.

I have been using that one also. Internal booster is 6v. Only draw back is you do need the programmer to put it into "blinky" or to change any settings. There is no option to use the button for anything but turning it on/off of radio calibration. Also the programmers are a rare item right now.

SMC also has a 1s ESC I have been running it in my WGT-R with no problems, it also needs programmer box. Cost is $107 with box. It has about every thing you will ever need. It has a small foot print also

Yeah, since I bought 3 of the Gen2 speedos, I got the programmer as well. The PC interface is pretty nice too. It's more refined than I was expecting.

Yeah. I've noticed that. You can get the ESC from Hobbyking US but the program box only comes from the international.

When I got mine it was from a US warehouse. I guess they are out of stock right now. At the rate they re-stock it could be months before they are available here again.
