Can I ask for different springs when I buy a new kit? I have so many of the .50's and the red that I don't have room to keep them in my parts box.

Nope they are .45's front and rear. Of the two R/T kits assembled last summer/fall we had two different red springs (wire dia.) Mike E. questioned me on that one as his was the other kit. That one was an easy mistake.

I am thinking about getting this chassis, it looks great, however, I was wondering at the wide set up will it run PRO 10 width? were I race guys will one day run WGT, then the next PRO 10 and go back and forth. If it wont does CRC have a conversion kit or do they have plans to make one.

Out of the box it is good to +/- 200mm, however, CRC does offer this...

Calandra Racing Concepts Inc.

Some time back, I recall CRC working on a dedicated 235 car, have not heard much recently.

That conversion works on the older chassis with the three hole mount for the front suspension plates. Newer cars (not sure which model) switched to a 1 piece plate to mount the front arms. I don't think that they made a 235 front plate for the newer cars.

Has anyone else noted that the 2017 IIC is switching from WGT-R (17.5/blinky/1S/rubber) back to WGT (13.5/blinky/1S/foam)?

Are there any others that were planning on racing in WGT-R at the IIC this year?

Bill

Will any of you guys go to the IIC if they feature WGT-R?

I probably would...two of us are in Vegas for Defcon, but that's far enough a part to maybe swing it.

Default setup question:

So...

I've got say 195mm front track width and I make the rear track width wider, 200mm as an example.

Pick any front tack width, I suppose it doesn't matter. Does increasing the rear track width always lessen turn in on principle?

Argued at the track for hours on this one...

I found widening the rear to 200mm made the car generally more stable and only slightly less aggressive. The car squared up and settled better allowing for more aggressive throttle use. My steering didn't change much until I went to narrow front and decreased Ackerman. I do not like a darty car. You've seen my car enough. I'm the only one running a 2 year old motor... for now. I'm not tossing down the gauntlet just yet, but I am inching closer and closer to the lead pack.

My current running car is pretty dialed, I'll futz with my second chassis that is almost complete.
