got my wgt3 together and just wondering on how you guys are setting up the electronics. Im using a tekin so I need a rx pack due to the 1 cell. I was thinking servo, rc pack, battery, then the esc and rx side by side in the back. Any ideas would be appreciated

Thanks. How do you like the new top decks. I was wondering what the difference in the short/short vs the long/long version does to the way the car handles. Love the car so far, just cant wait to get out on the track. Hopefully this week if all goes well

Well, I've personally never ran the short version yet, but my opinion is the further forward I move the shock the more I gain off power steering. So it really seems to be beneficial getting through the middle of those tight turns.

Dave,

Is that wing hanging off the back as much as the picture appears to show?

Looks like Xavier did well at the IIC a few weeks ago. That's awesome! I sent Speedmerchant an email today with a few questions so hopefully I hear back soon.

I haven't heard of a rev8 WGT ?

WGT3 is the latest gen

Old Skool is better imo
New OS front will be even sweeter

Once you get used to the solid feel of an OS front end, it's hard to go back to the squishy feel on other front ends, especially on a WGT
