Thanks a lot. That driving well thing always gets in my way.

I think we need to add a rule. The leader must crash at least once during every race.

Looking for a setup tool. Can any recommend a setup station? Been eyeing the Hudy HUD109405 but want to see if there are any cheaper alternatives?

Also not sure of the Hudy wheel nuts as they are 3mm.. I don't think the CRC ones are metric.

Anyone advise?

I don't the cost of the Hudy system, but Integy has variety of setup stations.

AMain has some and they have reviews with the ones they stock.

Hobby King has a pan car setup station, but it's only for the front.

I'll be there this Sunday to break it in, make adjustments.

Absolutely correct. It is a very competitive class at our track. You really have to concentrate and as you said a mistake is costly. It is one of our largest classes at "The Gate".

I haven't had that much fun in On-Road in a long time!

Had a visiting Team CRC driver, Adam Balk, in for our club race this weekend. Adam spent a LOT of time helping people get their WGT-R (and other) cars dialed in.

Result? We had thirteen WGT-R cars entered. Top to bottom the qualifying was within a lap plus several seconds after three rounds. For the mains we seeded seven cars directly into the A-main and ran the other six in the B-main with three bump-ups. In the B-main NO one got lapped by the winner. In the (now) ten car A-main race a couple cars MAY have been lapped, but the great majority were on the lead lap and dicing closely for positions.

THANKS ADAM!!
