In Europe it seems that for indoors WGT with 2s 17.5t are being run everywhere except England. With 2s I don't see those kind of drops like in the 1/12. I never drove 1s in my WGT car but I can only imagine with the higher weight of the WGT that using 1s the drop in speed will be worse then in the 1/12.
Looks like we will have the choice of either 2c LiPo and 17.5 (boosted) or 1c LiPo with a 10.5 (boosted) here in the UK.

It looks like the 2c/17.5 option was slightly quicker than the 1c/10.5 setup.

The winter GT10 series starts at Ardent next month and I for one, am really looking forward to it!

Tamiya have some new 190mm GT bodies coming soon
Could these possibly fit a WGT Chassis ?

They might fit and they would look cool but would probably not be competitive.

I tried a McAllister 599 last year and slowed down .5 sec./lap (12 sec./lap track).

Too bad those are 190mm.

The WGT chassis is made for 200mm bodies and HPI has quite a few really good looknig ones.

According to the WGT body mandate, the only one of those that would be legal would be the Ferrari. The rule was written as "Any Front-engined, RWD, two door GT car that has been raced in a full scale GT series" Of course that rule technically excludes the Sophia, as it was never actually raced anywhere.

I just don't see how any class can be called GT that doesn't allow Porsche 911 bodies..........
