You don't have to have blazing speed to have fun. Close competition is always better. On that note, this class is starting to move outdoors for some racers. If your track is very large I could see where 13.5 might be considered.

Nutdriver and I already run 2S 21.5 setups in our F1 cars. I have 4 F1's, and 4 2S/21.5 setups (batteries, ESC, and motors). We thought since we already have them, why not try?

I've seen the WGT-R cars, and they're just too slow for my liking. That is alright for some. I already race USVTA, which is fun, slow, close racing on rubber tires with sedan bodies.

We may build some WGT-R cars and put 2S 21.5 setups in them just for fun.

If you are set on CRC, wait for the new kit. After that, your planned gear is great.

I'm having fun with the competitive nature this class allows indoor on carpet. You have to make a real pass and if the guy in front of you makes his car 8 feet wide, too bad for you. Not really concerned about speed when there is a train of cars actually battling for position.

You should have seen our WGT-R main two weeks ago. For 7 minutes the top three were in line with less than 1 second covering them. A little bump between #1 and #2 and #3 was now #1. One of the better on road races of the season in any class. Good drivers, (no hacking) with the setup figured out makes for outstanding racing no matter what the tires or car type.

WOW!
Somebody's bitter...
The crash fest has little to do with the tires. Rubber tire TC's require a bit more skill to drive well, I'd have to admit but it's not the tires fault.

Yeah the crashfest races seem to be more here in the states on tracks that are put down on a piece of carpet the size of a billiard table. Not rubber tire issue.

Has anyone run their cars outdoors yet? The reason I ask is because if the CRC tires are basically a 571/572 combo, those tires should work very well.

We run on a sealed and prepped with soda surface here in SoCal. The cars are money when set up properly. Either the CRC tires are much better on pavement or the WGT chassis work better than the F1 chassis do. My car is hooked up quite well but my F1 with Pits is white knuckle for 6 minutes. 😁

I am assuming that you are running each car per class rules. I can easily believe your F1 is "white knuckle" because the power is so much different. I run my WGT-R in the class with USGT. They run the same power as the F1, but have the advantage of the USGT tire, 4WD and the 2 cells lipo power. My little single cell on 17.5 is not near the same "rip" from the corners as they have. Putting 2 cell 21.5 in my car would make it a big handfull as I have maximized the traction of my car and can not increase it.

Having said all of that, I think F1 should be single cell and take your pick of 13.5 or 17.5. The cars would be more drive-able and I think popularity would sky rocket.
