In transverse configuration, moving the battery forward calms the car down if it is overly aggressive.

I am interested in its potential for outdoor asphalt racing where we will likely run 13.5 motors.

And you mean great folks...don't you????

I took a set of 3mm shcs and ground them down with my Dremel and belt sander.
Do not try and run diff fluid in these as they are not sealed. A film of medium to thick grease on the side gears is all you need. Building resistance in the diff reduces the cars ability to rotate in the corner. All of my racing is on carpet. If you are setting it up for asphalt the game is different.
dumper: thanks for the timely shipping...

old_dude: thanks for the heads up. I'll get it figured out. Figure I'll try my 1,000,000wt Spec-R taffy. Fact is, my CRC balldiff is pretty solid, just always wanted to try one of those diffs.

Such a nice, well constructed chassis that can be tuned/built to do whatever you like.

Now don't laugh, going to bang around with one of these...

celt,

That truck body makes for a truly distinctive class...Interesting thought...Not laughing here.

Where did that body come from? 200mm?

Can anyone tell me what tire balancer you are using to balance the rear wheels and tires?
I can do the fronts with what I have but the rear wheels have too large a hole for my balancer to hold and I have not been able to find anything in the searches I have done!!

Default WGT-R Conversion Using SE vs. WGT-R/T Kits

Josh,

Initially, I spent about $40-50 converting an SE over to WGT-R and the finished car ended up needing 40 grams in added ballast weights. Also needed to swap out for the tall tire motor plates in the rear pod and spaced up the front suspension to be at 5mm+ height.

Soon after, I built two CRC WGT-R/T kits that came out within a few grams of being legal weight in their in-line and transverse battery configurations. Plus, the new kit allows for both battery positions; whereas, the SE doesn't.

Have sold the conversion car in favor of the others.

Cheers!

Bill

Do whatever makes sense to your checkbook. Both cars can be very competitive. The SE could be converted by just using shims, the motor pod plates are nice but for the budget minded racer not necessary.
