How many drivers use a fan on their WGT-R racing car?

Can Am, no need for a fan. Open WGTR is boarderline so I have been running one.

Fan on the left side pod plate. Cools even a CanAm motor and balances the pod.

Anyone know if a Tamiya F103s would potentially have any success in W GT-R?

The car would be better suited for the F1 class. It will have a few disadvantages for WGTR, but could be run for a beginner in club racing. The F103 is longer and more narrow than most WGTRs. Plus having the upper chassis tray puts a lot of weight up higher. It may traction roll a bunch? I don't know if you could even legally run it in the class - would it need WGRT rear hubs/rims? A local club may let you run the CRC F1 tire, which is the same tire on a different set of rims.

Maybe not as off as you think. Our WGTR's are now being run at around a 190 width.

Default Silver dot

What does the silver dot mean on the WGTR rim?

Did you get the tire and wheel at a race that required the use of those items?

I think there was a slight change in compound when the switched molders. You want the newer tires as they are softer. But you won't run them as long. Still great.

$85/set is getting crazy. New set is worth half a second over a set that is a few months old and maybe 5 club races on them. A set of Gravity USGT tires is less than $40, what gives CRC? :,(

But at least you don't need that tire truer any longer.

Especially considering they sell the 4 wheels alone for something like $10. Any reason one couldn't mount F1 tires to the CRC wheels? That seems like all it is. We don't have a WGT-R class here in SoCal, but I'd like to try out rubber tires. I just can't justify spending that much for a car that won't be raced.
