Jason, can you post your setup from the GLC? Gearing, Body, Tires - make, shore ratings, size, Manifold, Pipe etc.

Any W.R.C. options on the car?

Sure I will do that ASAP. I ran the car box stock. The only option needed is GT108 Front Body Mount Set (Aluminum) which is in the kit photos but does not come in the GT Due kit. I have a few of those in stock. More info soon...

Hi Guys

Here is my setup for the GLC. I have been working on this improved US setup sheet in English and it turned out pretty nice, but I will add a field for the differential setup. Otherwise it seems complete. Please let me know if you find any missing information to be added before I post the blank setup sheet.



So, the Irwin Racing Concepts Website is now complete, however our hosting company has to re-direct the domain name, which may take up to a week. It should be live very soon, I will let you all know when its live:

www.irwinrc.com

We will be away next week for the Nats so all website orders will be filled September 17.
Thanks!

Oh yes, thats the other thing i want to add to the sheet. I will have to draw a diagram for that. Thanks for the reminder...and that also reminds me that the sheet needs a place for traction compound. I used Gravity Racing LG2 on the rear tires. I will add that to the sheet later.

So for castor, there are 5 arrows, arrow 3 being the middle. So I ran 1 tick more upright from middle, or 1 tick laying back from most upright arrow. Hope thats clear.

I want to mention that Lon Sr. has the setup pretty well dialed for Toledo so I worked with his basic guideline and mostly played with the clutch spring tension and drag break to get the feel I was looking for.

Regarding traction compound, I am working with Paul Lemieux at Gravity Racing and am excited to be carrying his products, all for use with pan cars (as well as other applications). We will stock the LG2 traction compound and some other very cool products that Paul has put together.

Jason is out in LA for the Onroad Nats, so he likely hasn't seen this.

The EVOs are scheduled to be released this month - I don't believe Jason has received his initial shipment yet. Its a brand new car - we haven't seen them here in the US yet. The current WRC Due is a great car, and Jason and the dealers have that car in stock. The pricing is lower on the Due than on the EVO, and there will continue to be parts support on the Dues as well. If you want to jump into the pan car class, no need to wait!

Jason - Be sure to add a spot for which durometer/color washer is being used in the front flex adjustment, and also add check boxes for which chassis, radio plate and whether the chassis flex stiffener is added. Sounds like a lot of stuff, but its still half the length of a suspension car setup sheet...

I understand I just like the evo kit that's all plus in Ohio the season for nitro on-road is almost over. So I'll take my time with building whichever kit I go with. Also does anyone know the difference s between the two kits?

Hi guys.
Gary, thanks for your help sharing information and iyour deas for the setup sheet. I think we will have a very complete yet simple looking sheet soon. I will just need a few days to do some graphic design/layout and I will post the sheet here when it's complete. For now it will not be and editable PDF but if someone has experience with making one let me know.

As for the EVO release, I was in touch with WRC Italy this week and the word in early October but we will have to factor in shipping time which is a week. As Gary mentioned the Due kit is priced for developing the class in the US and is a great car. The EVO has only been seen in the prototype images so we don't yet have more about the car's performance.

www.irwinrc.com lists the new car so that folks can take a look. There is currently a pre order list that people have signed up for to pre order kits from the first shipment and I would recommend sending me a note if you wish to secure a kit from the first batch.

I like your Website. Especially the parts section. I would suggest adding Option to any parts that are not standard in the kit. Could make it easier for first orders.

Matt,
The parts they use are GT038 and GT039 in the parts' section. I'll send you a link to some good pics of the car being assembled.
