Not positive what gearing will be like with the 1s, I did try running with a 40/96. It seemed ok, laptimes similar to maybe even a little faster than 4cell laps. That was mostly down to the grip on the track. I think a 40 was the biggest I could fit with the 96 spur. If you run larger tires you won't need as big a pinion though.

for those using the inline steering blocks, do you use the set screw that goes in the axle to lock the block on the kingpin?

You can if you want but I don't normally use it.

Are there in companies making scale decals for the bodies used in this class?

Ok guys I know this is an associated thread and hate to debate on here. I have always been an associated fan, and currently own a 12r5 and a tc5f. I am wanting to hear opinions on how the crc genx10 and the 10r5 compare in your opinion. I have looked at both cars and currently up in the air on which to go with. Lets hear your honest opinions on performace and preference.

Thanks!

I own and drive both, the GenX10 and the RC10R5, I love both the cars but frankly speaking, the GenX10 is easier to drive and goes like hell already out of the box while the RC10R5 needs more set up efforts to get it working. But once you get it there, it's as fast and efficient as the CRC.

On the CRC I like the specific 10th scale layout of the main chassis against the blown up 12th scale chassis of the R5 which in my opinion is the reason why it does not perform on the same level right out of the box as the CRC does...

On the R5, I love it's simplicity and style. Very easy on maintenance. Great shocks...and high performance once you get it right with the setup.

Just my personal opinion...

Cheers,
Andy

Wow... almost the exact opposite I have heard from everybody else in a comparison between teh two cars. Everybody I have spoken to says that the 10r5 will blister down the track right out of the box, and the CRC takes a bunch of tweaking and tuning to get it to perform.

Wait... how did you run 40/96? The largest pinion I could fit into the pod with the stock spur, was 36tooth. The motor was literally as far forward as it could go and I JUST BARELY got enough tooth spacing to get it to work. A 37 would not of fit in my car...

Maybe this depends how you run it. I'm not talking about World GT 4-Cell layout but 2s LiPo with motors down to 5.5T. Maybe this makes the difference...
However, most of the time I'm driving 2s LiPo and 13.5T in our Swiss GT class over here in Switzerland...

And as I said, it's just my personal experience and opinion...others may have different ideas and opinions...

Cheers,
Andy

If you look carefully the limiting factor to moving the motor forward is not the holes in the motor plate, but the carbon fiber top and bottom plates. A little finesse with a dremel and I can fit a 76/60 (same tooth count as a 96/40) in the AE pod. I can fit more, but I just don't have the pinions to test it!

Andrew is correct about filing the graphite plates. Motor brands also have an influence on how big a gear will fit. I use a LRP motor and it has a beveled edge on the mounting face so it doesn't interfer with the graphite plate as much.
