Thank's John

Someone was talking about your rear end kit for the battle axe . He brought it up after he found out i was running a CRC car . I told him it will also fit the gen x10 . I needed more gear formy car but the biggest pinion i had was a 40t . I had to drop to a 94t spur to get a lower ratio . I think a 41 42 or 43 would have been perfect . Also they were using the new roar weights for WGT . My car is almost 100 grams or 3.5 oz over the minimum weight . My car is just under the minimum with out the body.

My GenX10 is running at 1158g (2s 17.5), it may be well over the 1050g minimum weight but it currently holds the track record for the GT2 class.
I have just got some 5000 40c packs as I have been running 4000 30c packs, but with all this rain I doubt the car will get much running (been idle since 3rd Sunday in October).

Oval News
My customized battle Axe has found a good home in New York at the Plattsburg, Lake City RC raceway. They have quite a few drivers participating on the oval these days and a very competive atmosphere. If we are lucky we will get some reports on it.

In the meantime I re outfitted my Superior Spectre Oval car this time with 1 cell 10.5. Weight came out to 36.6 ounces. My battery setup has an inner fence that I moved to put the battery right on the edge of the body. I installed a graphite pad to put the speed control behind the battery as is the habit these days. With one cell that extra weight on the left rear is desperately needed. I'll give it a test in the next few days and see how it compared to the Dual A-arm, 3-link rear, Battle Axe mentioned above.

The Superior Spectre car has some interesting features. It is Rear Pivot T-plate car. This means the T-plate is not rigidly clamped to the rear pod. Instead three of the standard t-plate pivots go across the car. So the t-plate not only pivots in roll. It pivots at the rear in bump. Handling is very similar to the center pivot side link suspension used on CRC's battle Axe and Gen X-10. IT has a tad more antisquat than a center pivot side link car and has more forward traction because the rear pivots are as far back as possible. Last in line would be the Standard T-plate car whose pivot in bump is farther forward on the chassis.

There is a small Kydex bumper for the 1/12 cells sold by CRC that would easily cut some weight off both these cars. On this car a Shortie bumper will probably suite me better. I can remove .6 ounces elsewhere.

Battle Axe 2.0
If you have been considering this car, I have put together a nice set of large photos of the Battle Axe 2.0 with the main features of the car. It is a nice supplement to those found on the TeamCRC.com main site.

I will have a similar page on the JS Pro200 BA soon. It will retail for about $450 if things go well. This car is being tested in New York.

Hi,

my GenX10 is ~1100g, 2S LiPo 5000 30C, 17.5T. I will use Jaco 2100 and 2110 tires (58mm diameter). I plan to use 100T64P Spur. What pinion I should get to start? Track is small (~25-30m straight) high grip carpet. Thank you.

What ESC are you using?
that makes a huge difference on gearing for a 17.5 motor.

I use a GM90 as it allows me to change the gearchange point, which I dropped to 15,000 rpm (kit settings was at 18,000 rpm)

Tekin RS Pro. Motor is Speed Passion Competition Version3.0 17.5R.

I forgot to mention that soon I will have second GenX 10 (for my son) with SP GT LPF Brushless ESC Version 2.0. Would be good to have pinion recommendation for that too.
And I am thinking about motor choice... I can move SP in son car to have proper combo. So do I have to do it and buy also Tekin motor for myself or SP is ok? Or maybe some other better choices for me? Thank you very much for helping novice to enter in WGT world!

Hi,

Im awaiting a CRC GenX 10 kit soon But i would like som advice on motor size and gearing before i buy these things. I am going to race indoor carpet mainly, the track is "medium" size i would say. In the summer i will race asphalt outdoors. But for indoor, what winding on the motor do you guys think i should buy?. I am not regulated to any class or so.. so winding is free. I want the car to easily "eat up" the MOD TC cars LiPo 2s packs is what i will use!.

Also some hints on gearing would be super!, 64p is what im going to use.

ESC will probably be LRP SXX, TekinRS seems to be out everywhere..

Cheers for the set up help guys, ran the car for the first time and it seemed really good. Need to true the tyres down then i'll be good to go. I was speaking to a guy at my club and he recommends to do the front arm roll center mod so i'll give that a go next time but i'll have to wait till after xmas to try it out. Many thanks again and have a good xmas

Rio-thanks for the report. Nice to see you having some luck. Empo-I suggest a 10.5 to start out. You will learn the throttle roll on necessary after a turn and also the slight pause you give before throttle to let the car straighten up. I am geared about 3.2 overall. My track is big though. The second motor outside can be anything more powerfull. More skill will be needed and a wide pan conversion is desirable.

Petite Lemans (2s LiPO, 10.5, Pan Car)
I ran mine today and all was good. I am having luck with the wide line, eliminating braking. The car is hooked up pretty well. I went from #1 to #10 on the LRP SXX throttle profile. I was underwhelmed by the difference. None to be noticed.

Ask John at CRC directly. They now have a metric screw set listed for the new XL chassis; so, they could have something in the works for the X 10 too.

Otherwise, I bought a custom titanium screw set from Lunsford Racing for my X 10 last year. Very pricy; but, excellent quality.
