Default Say Dumper.....

Have you ever thought about make some WGTR rims with a 12mm hex so we could run these tires on other chassis's? IMHO these tires look better on the VTA cars than the HPI tires and there is no problem getting them. Just wondering.

We haven't. If we did do it, it would change the entire scope of the VTA game. You would have to have these tires, and that is not what VTA is about. I know the VTA tires are hard to get right now, but it sounds like Rob King is on it and there is a fix coming. So there was no need for us to get involved with these tires.

Default Pod droop

Just curious what others are running for rear pod droop.

Sitting at 2.00mm

Check back to Post 106 from Dumper on this thread. Since then I have been running minimal droop too (maybe
1mm); except, on bumpy surfaces where I run about 2mm.

Thanks Bill...

Putting a +/- 1mm spacer under the center shock piston?

I could see if I can thread the ballcup on a pinch more I suppose.

I did just thread the ballcup onto the shaft further. Used the o-ring under the piston method on my regular WGT cars though.

If you check the latest picture of Dumper's WGT-R/T on the Team CRC website, you will note that he is now using two motor plates on his rear pod with a motor fan attached to the one on the left side. Kewl!

I believe it is a lexan mount he made and it is attached to the pod .

Nope. Called Dumper yesterday and he confirmed it. But, he is thinking about relocating the fan closer to the motor for more effect.

And.....................He is also back to using the PFM-10 body after having an issue with the Ford GT.

There is room to drill and tap a 4-40 hole in the lower right of the left pod. I have had my fan there from the original build of the car. Helps balance the pod too. Not a totally effective fan location but it serves two purposes.
He has run the PFM-10 for quite awhile. He ran the GT at the Indoor Champs and the Birds. He was running the PFM at our track (90 x 40) and AustinTown (similar size). My thoughts are big track GT, small tracks PFM.

Ok, stupid question here. Why is there a need for the fan in 1S racing? My motor temps in my 12th scale are around 130 and that's on an 80 x 40 black carpet track with a subfloor. The only thing I could think of is that the car is bigger and weighs more with the rubber tires. Or am I totally wrong on this assumption?
