Your choices are: DB9 or Sophia. Both work well!
I have trued my tires to 52mm for a med bite carpet track and have set my ride height to 4mm then let it go down from there.

I agree with you except that the R5 front end still has camber change. But I prefer the old skool

Default WGT3

A new project in the works...

Carbon all prepped, ready for assembly.



Pete, what front bumper is that you're using ?

Battery even farther forward, new battery strap and stop deck combo, and .18 front springs

what bumper is that from?

Front end is only difference. We've been using the "sport" version ever since the rev7/wgt3. They work. Pete just Tq'd WGT and tq'd and won 17.5.

That bumper IS from cefx. That's some custom work Pete did. Bruce cut some for birds. We'll see what happens.

A bumper would definitely be handy for club racing.

Thought I would post up some pics of my WGT3 from the Snowbird Nationals a few weeks ago. This car was TQ of the 13.5 Non-boost WGT class, the only class offered at the Snowbirds.

Pictured you will see the new SpeedMerchant WGT3 bumper that should be available now. It was developed after my testing with the modded CEFX bumper from previous pics. It's 4mm thick too so don't worry about breaking it

Enjoy.
