Thanks Qball41. If you could snap a pic of the rear wing/get some info, I'd owe you

I've clicked the "buy it now" on ebay for a couple of these bodies, can't wait to paint one!

I assume most folks are running indoors at the moment but in my area we run pavement all year round so I wanted to be sure I had good front grip which I believe the Z28 and Caddy will produce due to the front splitter.

My McKune chassis was pretty awesome in Foam trim so I hope it will be equally good on rubber. Gonna run transverse battery at first and then switch to in line for comparison.

I tried the in-line form on the LE car and wasn't all that pleased with it. Switched to transverse and it made a huge difference. Some of the other guys in my club have started to do the same thing and have been finding it yield some excellent results.

Good luck! Transverse works on low grip carpet for sure.

I've been using the Delta Plastics Panoz on my Top Rebel and like the forward bite but have been tempted to try the Caddy as the Panoz is a heavy body but great for durability, the guys at the track say it looks like the bat mobile so I'm tempted to paint another one up in that scheme.

I always play pretty cautious with my gear, so I run a conservative setup with gearing. I'm currently running an 88/38 @ 2.32 FDR and very conservative 84mm rollout. The odd part is my car is just fine. So I added a tooth to the pinion and expected my temps to go up. Well, they went down instead. Time to gear up some more and see where temps increase or efficiency starts to decrease. I'm thinking I could approach 95mm or more before it hits the cliff. We shall see.

Is CRC coming out with a WGT-R kit? Or will it just be a conversion?

When Brian Wynn was in North Dakota last month he said there is a new kit coming. They have been busy with other endeavors though so it is a bit delayed. I am guessing the high demand for new carpet has them pretty swamped.

For the most part the WGT-R chassis are converted WGT cars from foam to rubber tire configurations. The wheel base is similar to a touring car.
I tried to look it up on CRC's website but couldn't find a specific range.

I would bet it will be the GenX 10 kit with the F1 rear end and wider pod plates.

Note to self: You had it right, put it back the way it was.

I know by adding the WTF-1 rear pod plates to an SE pod will lengthen the car a couple mill and the wheel arches are off just a tick. I know as I updated my LE to an SE pod with the WTF plates. The new rubber chassis is rumored to shorten it back up to a 255 or so wheelbase (Most 200 wide bodies are this wheelbase). It will be a very good car.
