Guess I missed the 2'nd part of your post, lol. WCRCR is awesome, grip similar to SIR, and size similar to Tamiya USA's track. Awesome!

And yet to see it on anyones car, is far wider than what we are talking about and probably not overlooked but almost forgotten. Theres no load there. X-Ray quit doing all that upper and lower adjustable flex crap a long time ago.... Hmm?
graphite getting thinner and yet stiffer .. WTF?! Theres no load there.... unless you crash sideways . Hey man.. lets make a T-BAR touring car ... flex that

Your car looks ridiculously good. The amount of grip and corner speed is outstanding.

It was really good, just slightly pushy. Look for the setup on teamtrf.com

BTW, I was at a parking lot race this weekend, had a lot of fun and the car was really good. For anyone interested in the setup I used check out my latest blog on teamtrf.com

I'll try to get on the forums more often, just finished moving and working on multiple projects as well as work, and a lot of time at the track lately, I've been busy!
I wish our local tracks were gooped up that much, would make life so much more enjoyable.

Sorry, forgot to add that the setup sheet uses the Hupo Reedy Race setup at thard.co.uk as a start, and the changes I made to it are located in my latest blog "Back to the old school." on teamtrf.com.

lol, I like a ton of steering and a lack of rear traction normally. That setup was very easy to drive though, so it should work really well for everyone. We have a new track out here, West Coast R/C Raceway, indoors and super high bite, if you want to see one of my setups that have steering, watch me on that track, lol. Anti-dive, anti-squat, overdrive on the front pulley, white and blue springs, and my droop set to 26.5mm to the top of the front axle, lol. What's even scarier than that setup, is I am learning to drive it without making mistakes, lol.

Hey Randy ... saw you and Johnny on you tube racing. I wish we had a good group of modified drivers around here .. 13.5 is about all there is anymore around here.
Your tarmac setup looks pretty good M8!

Hey Randy, what body do you run on your setups? If you want steering, maybe give the LTC-R a try. I hear the R9-R gives crazy steering...
