Thinking that this is what I saw at the back of Dumper's PFM-10 body.

Unfortunately, they are Out of Stock at Protoform; but, may still be in stock at Stormer or elsewhere.

So I just got home from my first official race with my car. All I can say is what a fun class!

Super close racing all day. I am pretty rusty and I am still trying to get a handle on a setup I like but I was able to get within .1 fast lap for fast lap of the TQ. I just need to settle in and not over drive the car. We all had some traction rolling issues but Zach's car was much smoother than mine. I need to stiffen up the springs and go up on tube lube.

Anyway, good times at The Gate today!

Chris

Default Endurance race?

Has there been any discussion / attempts at an endurance race with this class? Seems to be made for it:

1. efficient - easy on motors and batteries
2. economical - spec tires, slower drivable speeds
3. multiple valid bodies - LeMans (not all sedan bodies)
4. lights are possible with most listed body shells

I think a four to eight hour race would be a killer amount of fun. Any local tracks show any interest in this?

Do the Xray X1 F1 alloy pod plates fit the X10 and lower the ride height enough for rubber tryes?

Yes, this is a good way to use the 10SE chassis with the rubber tires in WGT-R. It will increase the wheel base a little, but most of that can be recovered by moving the front suspension to the shortest position on the chassis. That will help if you are using the Ford GT body as it has a longer nose.

Correct, that's why I put Xray and underlined it

I've asked in the XRAY formums and no answer. It's as simple as getting the X1 and the X10 next to each other, but apparently no one is willing to speak on the subject. I ended up with a CRC and a SpeedMerchant.

So, how many clubs/shop tracks/organized local racing centers are running this class on a regular basis? We're fighting through the general low attendance in Madison Wisconsin, but this is one of our bigger classes. We plan on running through the summer indoor at this point.

We run this class every time we run onroad (WGT R) and have as many as 10 cars and a low of 6 cars. F1 is also starting to pick up.
