AFTER finely getting run main race my new set diff gears held up grate no problems in 30 min main, did notice front axle pivot plate loosen up even with lock tight, need keep eye on that and also found out after two races need replace the clutch bell bearing fell apart when checked today. Other than that car felt good still need a just from 4wd to 2wd style driving. But happy with car

Glad to hear the new set of gears have worked out for you. And Im happy to say that WRC was very receptive to our feedback and appreciated the photos you sent me as they want to know about any issues and had not seen this before.

As for your front pivot balls loosening from the chassis, I assume you may need to wrench both the top and bottom hex to lock this part in place. The funny thing is I found that the Ikea wrench is the same size as the top hex of the ball, and I keep an Ikea wrench in my tool bag. The rear ball is harder to reach with the car built, and in that case I wedge a 4mm hex wrench in there at an angle to hold the ball in place while tightening the bottom screw. Hope this helps

Im happy to say we now have the pan class up and running in New York with our first run in the Absolute Hobbyz Race at Port Jervis this past week. The class is quickly growing and we will soon have a full field of cars.

With many new faces joining us in pan, we are quickly developing insight into the GT Due cars and will share setup ideas once we have dialed in a good starting point for the Port Jervis Track. This testing will also help illuminate the possibilities of the car and how to make changes for various conditions. More on this soon.

Noah Bellville racing WRC in the pan car class at the 2014 Great Lakes Challenge.

I was asked by Jason Irwin at this years GLC race to post these pictures and explain my receiver box mod/ add on.

I don't like seeing all the servo wires, transponder wires and other wire that goes into these cars. So I decided to put a receiver box on my cars. I wanted something that was small but would still do the job and look good doing it. I ended up using a radio box from the electric line of serpent 811 1/8 cars......can be picked up on Ebay for about 6 bucks

Pictures of the radio box with a layout on where to cut and what to keep.



to install the radio box take the receiver tray that comes with the Due or Evo turn them around so the flat side is facing out. then use screws to secure the box to the stock receiver tray then bot that to the car.

pictures of my cars. the first where pictures are of the Due car and the other is the New Due Evo.

At our club race today we had 8 pan cars racing. Jeff Z. TQed and lost a belt with less then a minute to go allowing Rick Davies to take the win. A fun time was had by all.

Default Steering Servo Question

Will be building a DUE EVO over the winter and I've heard it needs a low profile servo for the steering. I'd like to get some input from other racers as to what they are using , what brand/model they would recommend.
