What would I have to do to get my RC10R5.1 WGT-R compliant? I'm trying to decide between WGT-R or making it into a Pro 10 car.

It would be extremely helpful if Protoform showed pics of this new body mounted (unpainted) on the CRC WGT-R/T chassis...

I believe kimihiko-yano.net has them

Stormerhobbies.com should have them.

Horizonhobbies.com

All you really need to do is get a set of wheels and tires, get them on the car, and get the car down to close to 5mm of ride height. The max width is 200mm so you may need to space out the rear a little. Then mount a body. and you are done. Don from Associated customer service is already running one, so you can call and talk to him.

If you need more help, you can email me brian@teamcrc.com. I would be more than happy to help.

Check it out for yourself.

So, please let the group know if you are successful in making this body work on a WGT-R car. I could be wrong (and hope that I am because the Ford GT looks cool); but, the Protoform photo sure appears to indicate otherwise.

Hi Bill;

Thanks for your concern.

This body was designed specifically for the WGT-R class. You realize this class uses pan-car chassis right? (with minimal suspension travel compared to 4WD sedan)
Slamming a car to the extreme simply makes for a cool "look". Even the big 1:1 auto makers do it at times in TV commercials, car shows and in their brochures.

If the body is too low around the tires or the carpet is bumpy, you simply adjust the body posts accordingly.

It's on my do-do list now. I have a CRC car here.
I'm a bit backed up with things right now - but I'll take a few pics on the weekend.
It's probably the rear body posts that you're concerned about.

Pro 10 is 235mm typically. Your car is 200mm. All you need is rubber tires, a 200mm body and a 17.5 1S blinky setup.

Good luck!

Dale may have seen someone's car and taken a whole pile of measurements......

At least the new CRC car has adjustable positions (in and out) for the rear posts.

And I am using them...Yeah!

Would be nice if the front graphite bumper plate had a few options for body post positioning too...Thinking Cadillac ATS.

Will,

Russ Bright who operates Ripon Speedway (in California) has already converted his RC10R5.1 WGT car over to WGT-R specs.

E-mail him at srbright7@msn.com for info. FYI...I usually do not see him on RCTech.net.

Bill

Default WGT-

All,

Russ Bright of Ripon Speedway (former home of the original Reedy Race) has posted a video of his Associated WGT-R car going around their asphalt track on YouTube.

Search for "WGT-R Ripon" on YouTube to see it.

Looks like his WGT-R car (using premount CRC tires) has very good potential on asphalt!

Have to get down there with mine to play...

Bill

Dale,

Per the very first post on this thread...Rules indicate that "Bodies must be cut on the mold lines". So, "adjust the body posts accordingly" may not result in a desirable look.

Sent you a PM too. And, still holding off on ordering a body...Although, I am a Ford guy!

Thanks.

Bill
