Default World GT Cars are GROWING in SOCAL!!!

Come check out the WGT Cars racing at TQ Hobbies in Chino!!!! We're getting more of them to race all the time. This is definitely the cheapest way to GO FAST!!! The cars are completely SPEC WGT-- 13.5 motors--NO timing ESC's--1s Lipos-- Spec tires from Jayco--WGT bodies--Ferrari's--Corvette's--Sophia's--etc. CRC cars Associated cars--I've got a new XRAY WGT car coming!! The tires I've run for three complete race days--and they'll go another!!! Same body too--the cars are much LIGHTER than TC cars so they don't break nearly as easily. MUCH easier to setup and drive fast!!! Really hooked up and handle great--so it's a drivers challenge to win races!!! REALLY FUN!!! They'll be GREAT on asphalt too!!! California Speedway and WCRC will be GREAT tracks to run these on also!! Check out the fastest growing class in SoCal at TQ!!!
Let's RACE!!!!

Yes, it's less maintenance, hard to break and more driving.

It's fun and very competitive class. Everybody can run very close in the race... without any hopups...

I'm glad WGT class is getting bigger.

See you...

Thanks Sean--I'd love to see these cars become the standard in 1/10 scale!! They are SOO much faster and easier to setup than your typical touring car--at HALF the cost of racing a "rubber tire" car!! Not that they aren't ALL fun--its' just great for CLOSE budget racing---it's all good if it's racing!!!

I'm playing with the Associated Corvette body now--it does look really nice. Most people are running the Sophia body--and the CRC car, Associated, and Xray cars ALL are as equal in performance as I've ever seen!! These cars are SOO equal in performance, that it's coming down to perfect tuning, exact rollout, and perfect driving to really get the most out of them. It's like the WCRC Super GT class, only cheaper to get into and easier to make the cars work exceptionally well. Gt bodies, 1s lipo's, 13.5 and NO timing ESC's-- along with SPEC tires from Jayco--simple PAN chassis--I'll bet even the older cars would work well! And come race!! Their times on the carpet have been equal to the 17.5 no timing touring cars!!
Bodies that I know of that work well-
Protoform--
Sophia
Peugot
McAllister-
Ferrari
Associated
Corvette
I'm sure there are more--those are just the one's I've seen at the track working well.

It will fit on the CRC Gen X10, I'm not sure about the 10R5.

Here are the recommended servos in the CRC Gen X10 Manual.

Futaba 9650
KO949
Hitec 225
Airtronics/Sanwa 94141, 94145

Well I gave up on being stingy and told the wife to buy me a WGT car for X-Mas (Im going to try the Serpent S100) so ill be out at TQ the beginning of the year running my F1 and WGT. Im guessing Jonathan (Smracer31) will too.


So what Foams are you guys finding hook up best at TQ?

Tires are open for my series, but other races Word GT Spec tires are used as a spec tires.

Next TQ PAN CAR Grand Prix on Jan. 23, we will use WGT Spec tires.

So, I recommend you to use one of the spec tires, CRC, BSR or Jaco spec tires.

CRC and BSR spec tires are the same, different maker.

I'm running with CRC WGT Spec tires, it works great.

Thanks.

I've been running the spec tires and they work very well. I haven't managed to win--but have been 2nd a couple of times and 3rd last time out with lap times comparable to the fastest cars. I think the tires work very well and the key is hitting the correct roll-out for your motor combination.
FWIW
