Yeah. They don't even list it as being available from the US. I have seen them on Ebay but probably still from the international warehouse.

All of them start out at CRC in Rome, New York, USA. They are the only manufacturer, seller and wholesaler. Contact them for an answer to your question. I know they distribute in Europe but through whom I do not know. This product is ramping up quickly and is only 2 months old so good luck.

Default Setup Help

Anyone have a good setup for the CRC chassis? There are a couple of us struggling with push at our club where other cars don't seem to have the issue.

The big question is which CRC chassis? There are several iterations. I run the Gen-X, the original. It has three front width settings and three wheel base settings. Usually narrow and short provide the best steering. Use the .45mm 1/10 scale front springs and about .03" to .05" of front droop. Caster is split with equal shimming front and back. I run trailing axles and about 1-3/4 degrees negative camber. In back i have .45mm side springs over the links, 50k in the tubes over the pod and the links are raised .030" in front to generate more rear steer. Center is 35wt oil and the red spring. My battery is in the back position with the esc in the front. Full SXT on all tires. I run either the HPI C6 or McAllister MX Stang and the car turns very well. This by the way is the setup for CRC Fast Track carpet and it works well on the new Fast Trak II.
Hope that helps.

As close to 5mm ride height as you can get
1/10th 45 front springs .590 kingpin length
1.5-2 degrees of camber
3/4 to full tire traction
5 degree caster blocks 2 or three shims forward
trailing axle, short wheelbase
red or white center spring
10k or less in the tubes
.45 or blue side springs just touching
200mm rear track width
rear ride height you can go up to 6mm if needed to get it to turn

Does your setup vary from this? What body are you running? Did you get all of the bump steer out? Any info you can provide will help......

I started with the Gen X 10 Pro, upgraded it to an LE, then the 12th front end and now have a rear SE pod with WTF plates. I know have a Pro in bag with no standoffs, a complete rear pod and not rear axle set.

Sounds like my setup is similar to your recommendations. I did try a Transverse battery setup, and it was better (SE chassis is wide enough). I'm running .45 12th front springs and think they might be bottoming out after thinking about about what you said. I'll try the longer springs and 10th kingpins as recommended. It should behave more like my WTF then.

I've still got 12th scale kingpins in and I think (know) it is bottoming out. The rest sounds pretty much dead on. I'll give it a try. I'm running the Protoform Camaro and have run the HPI GTR 35. It had the same issue with either body. I might have to run some of the old front Red or White springs until I can get the 8mm sets.

If you have side springs only, use blue. Make the kingpins almost touch the rim

Lotsa droop. I take a little out but still run the .45 looong CRC springs. Funny my F1 and WGT-R are very similar in setup. F1 has the battery a little forward though.

Thank you for this Brian - with a long break from work it has been very handy to get my car ready for the Snowbirds

Car sorted, bodyshell finished and ready for a pre-'Birds shakedown run

Any updates on the pre-mounted rubber wheels/tires yet?

This has been keeping me from spending $50 on a set of tires that I may ruin with my shotty glue job.
I prefer the pre-mounts primarily for this reason.
