Well what i just heard from the last le-mans race in Bad Breisig, Germany is that there was a seperate class of 235mm and 200mm. 235mm was modified with 2s lipo and the 200mm was 13.5turn brushless with 2s lipos. So with enough people it can be done. The problem with too many classes is that it can be harder to fill every class. Just wait and see how this will develope.

Definitely the stock ones, the inline blocks give too much steering, makes the car become kind of twitchy...

Cheers,

Inline blocks. More overall steering and more consistent steering through the entire corner.

...And then you die

Anyway,

@2wdrive: Alexander, yes I have glued the edges but you can't see it that good on the picture... I have to admit that it could use some more layers of CA glue. I just waited until there were noticable signs on the bottom of the chassis where it hit the asfalt so now I can sand these edges and glue the entire chassis again nice and tidy...

Joost.

Question for you guys running this car in WGT.... does your typical SMC 1s lipo fit right into the factory spot for the batteries? My track will be running ROAR rules, which is 1s 13.5, but I don't want to buy a car that I have to hack up to run my lipo. Anybody?

I'm running an SMC in mine. I first installed it using the nubs on the battery and it fits fine. I then changed it and I like the battery sitting on the flat part better. I servo taped pieces of lexan cut to the shape of the battery slots to the bottom of the battery to key it into place. It also makes it easier to install my electronics with the battery leads exiting on the passenger side. HTH

Another question for you guys... How long of a sensor wire do you guys usually have to purchase/run with this car?

Depending on how you mount the SC, 150mm should be good.

How about some help with gearing? I am 100% new to anything "pan".... I am going to be running the spec WGT jacos, and hopefully have them cut just a tad (I was told I would need them cut to 57mm in order to get my ride height under 6mm). So given a normal size WGT spec tire, what gearing should I look to start out at? I am going to be running a Tekin RS esc, and a redline 13.5... and I run 64pitch.

It is a pretty large outdoor asphault track with medium good traction.

The races I ran at last winter I used 35-37/96 with 54mm tires.
I ran an LRP 13.5t with LRP SPX and Reedy 4 cells.
I'm not familar with Tekin but that should get you into the correct area.

4 cell NiMh or LiPo? In our medium carpet track I am running full timing (26*) and a 66 mm rollout with a LPF 2.0 and a SP 13.5 with 1 cell LiPo.
