so my 13.5 is a pos and i cant really get anything out of it. wondering if i would have any success dropping my spare 17.5 in, and gearing/boosting it like a 12th scale or somewhere between.

would it be worth my while to fire up the soldering iron, or should i just sit out until the new motor arives?

was also tempted to just get a 10.5 and run blinky wgt. would it be competitive running against the prodominently D3 boosted 13.5s?

RC10R5, What does moving the Tweak Springs inboard by 8mm do for the handling?

Bad url need login.

It is like in dtm, inside spring = softer feel, outside spring, harder feel.

Moving them inboard results in a lower motion ratio... Thus for a spring of rate X, the effective spring rate seen @ the chassis will be higher with springs mounted outboard(say, on the links) than with them mounted 8mm inboard.

I wish AE would update the car. Current WGT's are working best with center lipo's. Just take the 12r5.2 rear end and damper assembly and bolt it to a new, simple rectangular chassis then both the existing front end to it. This new chassis would be cheaper to produce....fewer cut outs. Like a Speed Merchant WGT3 but blue and with the R5 front end.

There is a lipo kit present for the 10R5 without drilling in the chassis.
