After further research it seems many of the popular bodies (Corvette C7R, Camaro ZL1, PFM-10, mx-stang) are 190 width so I assume it isn't too much of an issue. If you've had trouble with any of the 190 bodies on the list feel free to chime in.

For about a year now most of the top racers have been running their cars narrow. That makes the 190 bodies fit. The GenX RT set full narrow in front and adjusted to a narrow track in the rear just makes it. You need to adjust your setup a little but when you do the car is faster than with a wider setting. Dumper convinced me to try it and I haven't gone back.

How is World Gtr turnout in Ohio? Still going strong?

Do you know if Access or Austintown have Can-Am motors to rent or buy? The Gate's off road right now, isn't it?

At the gate, it was one of the more popular classes when the season ended. It seems to be coming back around at Austintown.

I know Austintown has some Can-am motors to buy. But unsure of which class they are for.

GTR is normally the biggest class. I believe Joe has motors for sale. There is plenty of fast guys there willing to get you up to speed.

GTR is one of our biggest classes, so come on out! I'm looking to get F1 started and so far we are looking at about 4-5 and myself that have them. It doesn't look too good for me this weekend as I'm getting over the flu, but Joe and the guys should be there. We'd love to have another racer to our growing field of competition.

Cool, thanks. I should get the f1 car back together this week, and I'm starting the build on a CRC WGT next week hopefully.

The can am 12th scale class is coming on pretty strong as well and were starting to run some 13.5 12th. Wgtr is the biggest and most competitive well(theres me and everyone else) LOL! F1 will be coming here soon as mudvayne said I just have to get mine together. And another guy bought one last week. So come on out and have some fun at the best little track in Ohio.

Thanks. This makes sense as I've found my F1 works well at a narrower width.

I picked up a second hand Gen X 10 LE. Width to outside of tires is 195 mm. I think it's set up as narrow as possible (?). I checked manual for newer R/T version and it appears the new rear pod and front suspension mounts allow it to be narrower than my older chassis.

It's weird that narrow works well. Tenth scale gtp's are 235mm-ish wide.

My genx 10 RT is as narrow and short of wheelbase as possible the rear is at 192 and never measured the front but it's setup all the way in and back on the front holes my car is more responsive and has better overall turning abilities then my 12th scale foam tire cars.

Chances of this being added to the WGTR body list?
