Just wanted to let everyone know about our new 12th and 10th scale pan car tire truing adapter. This really helps get a true running tire by clamping the wheel the same way as when the wheel is attached to the hub with the mounting screws. Check it out at www.teamtamale.com.

This past week I went back to the battery forward set up that I had gotten away from early. Battery back made my car easier to drive while I was learning the ropes in WGT. After going forward position again, car is a rocket. Carved the turns, doesn't care what line I take on the track. And its really not any less stable or harder to drive than battery aft. Just faster. I Friggin love this car.

I am sure most are aware of this, but just for the sake of sharing, the Tamale pod for the Rev 7 seems to fit the WGT3 just about perfectly. I will be trying out the Tamale pod with the r5 front end on my wgt3 for the first time tonight, looking forward to it!

It does fit perfectly, however you can't get the axle high enough as it was designed with the 12th scale in mind.

Damn, that was the one thing I hadn't had the chance to check yet. That is going to bum me out if I can't even get to the 4mm minimum.

I don't have a #3 ride height nearby, but just grabbed a stock plate and a tamale plate all the way up and eyeballing w/ a pair of calipers I'd say you're gonna come up 2-2.5mm off. And this is for smaller sized tires.

Tamale pod works if you cut your tired down to nothing. Otherwise it doesn't work. Went down that road last carpet season

I have an idea for rear pod for the wgt cars that I need to get to to address this issue. If I make the bearing carriers using the standard 1/4 x 3/8 bearing, I can offset the bearing in the holder which should get us the ride hieght we need.
The carriers could be used for both 1/12 and 1/10 by switching them from one side to the other. This would give us a greater range of adjustment. I have a couple of other project to finish up first.

Always thinking, this one!

I have $20 for you next time you're at the track.

Default 10R5 Pin Brace Fits!

Took a chance and ordered a 10R5 pin brace to see if it would fit, and wouldn't you know...

For those who like to run the AE front end on their World GT3, the 10R5 pin brace is a direct fit with no mods.



And since I'm here, a little plug for the Timezone Gran Prix coming up in early November. The World GT field has been strong at this race from the beginning. It's a great event at a great track with a great crew. Put it on your calendar!
