That is very true and all the hard work has produced what I think may be one of the nicest racing facilities around.

Ran my first practice session with my new X-ray x10. Car worked good, turned in greatÖlittle to good at times. High speed sweeper into 180 wanted to traction roll high speed sweeper it was lifting inside front tire.. Iíve got standard kit setup, with links pointed in, shock spaced up 2mm in rear, side springs at 2mm running center spring at 2mm and gold spring. New tires, no glue yet on fronts, I raced crc until I got this car. Crc worked pretty good, Iím not dead set on keeping the X-ray yet, but Iíve only had it one practice day

I just started running the new CRC WGTR car last Wednesday. Outstanding right out of the box with a complete kit setup minus the diff (started with a spool) and with the optional side rails.. Really impressed.

probably worth trying a little glue.

or less camber

Smaller tracks 33 to 35 / 92. Larger tracks can sometimes handle 36-37 pinions.

Need to know the motor for gearing but that is a ball park. With the out of the box (timing is really close to spot on) Hobbywing G4R i am running 40/96 on our track. 88 x 36. The HW is a torque motor as it sits so a little taller gear. A HW G3R would be a little lower in gearing as it is more of a RPM motor. Just examples of how it can change for a motor/timing setup.

Right around 38, just like it came out of the box. I worked with it on the Fantom Dyno up and down, Ended up right back at 38. Going higher hurts the bottom end and hurts efficiency.

Good choice. I saw won this weekend and it is very true to the GT3 car.
Now please use your influence to get a Mustang GT3 car from Protoform. It would look great in pink.

I have note run wgtr yet so I am unsure about some of details. Are you guys running 200mm or 190mm? It looks like some of the approved bodies are 190mm.

I understand rules state up to 200mm but are you finding 190mm bodies are better option?
