New bearing completely fixed the grittiness of the diff. Might need to pick up an older axle so i can get a thrust bearing.

Oddly, I've not yet seen the usual victory photos and/or setups posted from Andrew's winning ride(s), but I do recall reading somewhere that he was actually running standard graphite chassis plates and not the optional alloy that many consider so advantageous for running on the new black carpet.
i saw that as well, but i know how old the WC chassis is i know they've had to had some new developments. i know the WC is still highly competitive right now, but i'd like to see something new. i'm plotting on a new 12th scale chassis next year and if i dont hear of anything from CRC i think i'm going Roche

very interesting to hear more on this

I hope that the updated pod seen in Andrew Knapp's car will be available as a retrofit. I am thinking about putting one behind the Xi chassis I still run in some classes,

If you have the older 8-32 stud axle, you can install a thrust kit. If you use 1/8" diff balls, use the #101 kit. If you use 3/32" or 2.5mm diff balls, use the #120 kit.

Thanks Brian. This is what I have come to learn.. If I can still get one of the older axles I would be using my slapmaster bearing for sure. I might just try doing that though as I loved how smooth the diff was..

Ask Dale or Skwarok next weekend if they have a spare laying around. Dale had a few random parts he sold me when I started to get a car together.

After playing with a friends xray this weekend, it would be nice if the axle, hub and slider pod fit together in such a way that killing a rear bearing wasnt the immediate end of your spur lol. He broke his xray in the first minute but still finished 8 minutes with it.. Meanwhile ill cut the sweeper a little tight and graze something and race over.

Got to try 6.5 on black carpet. Took my 13.5 car tires and body and just swapped to and 88t axle and 6.5 motor. Not bad. Miss the rip of 4.0 but pretty fun.

So some of the bearing issue on the slider pod depends on where you put the shims and axle spacers. I used to go through bearings constantly but now I put the axle shims next to the bearing and the red aluminum spacers on the outside of the shim. It seems that the red spacers are just the right diameter to punch out the inside race of the bearing. If you put an axle shim in between the spacer and the bearing it will keep this from happening. Haven't blown a bearing out that way since I switched.

Ill have to try that. punching out bearings is my only issue with this car. Otherwise i havent broke anything on it in 2 years. After seeing andrews car at iic i wonder if i even need some of the option parts now. I run the upper arm shims and brace in my 13.5 car but maybe i dont need to. More testing to do for sure. And figure out what tires for open class. Im told pinks but maybe blues work too. After the magenta green days ive gone off mixing compounds when possible. The spec tires have been quite good.

IRS axles available from Mudslide. Barry Hill now owns IRS. These axles still use the longer stud with 8x32 threads.

We have been playing with some new parts. There has not been a decision on whether or not this will turn into an entirely brand new car or not. So here is the deal:

There is a new clamping left side hub. It is a double clamper and spins perfectly true. This thing works great. Part #3331 is available right now. When you put one on, double check your spacing as the offset is different.

The new pod plates lower the center of gravity and will also allow you to get close to 5mm of ride height on rims. We are close to finalizing these, and are wrapping up the details. They will bolt on any car that is currently using a slider pod. I will let everyone know more as we get closer to releasing these.

As for the chassis, we are still playing with stuff. The WC is still winning races as you all can see. It is an awesome car, so anything new we come out with will have to be better. So we want everything to be spot on before we replace it. We are always tinkering with stuff, but we don't always show it in public. Yes Andrew Knapp won 13.5 with new stuff in Vegas, he also won 17.5 and 6.5 Mod with stock WC stuff.

So keep racing and winning with those WC cars, and we will keep trying to make them better.

See you guys at the races.

Having been able to see and try some of the new parts I can say they are nice improvements!

The new hub is wonderful, if you spin the old hub on an axle you can feel vibration from the slight off-balance. However, with the new hub it spins perfectly true. The new pods also address some issue people have had with ride height on smaller tires, overall A+ products by CRC as always.
