Which WGT did you get, or have you got one yet?

Same as any car, buy it and assemble it. Then stuff electronics in it, and then go whoop ass.

In my experience the CRC car was very easy to setup, I took a setup off their website and it worked from then on. You need to adjust the tweak of the car, which if you do not understand anyone with a pan car at H30 can show you in a few moments. There are subtle things you can do to the chassis to make it work better here or there on the track but in general the 'basic' setup will get you around and get you going until your familiar with the car.

Clean the tires, sauce them before you run, and wipe them dry before you hit the track. Start at 8 minute sauce and adjust more or less depending on the level of grip you get.

The hardest part of WGT in my opinion is finding someone to loan you a truer.

+1

I can handle a Facebook page 'cause I'm on there all the time anyway...plus, status updates serve the same purpose as Twitter with the added bonus of directly posting pics and vids straight from my phone.


GRANT: The club has a truer with the appropriate chuck for 1/12 and WGT wheels.

Thanks Wes, that is great info. I haven't decided on one yet. Thats why I was throwing it out there. I know nothing. . Are smaller ESC and servos required or does TC stuff work? And what is this booster talk? What I have gleened so far is the 1s is not enough to power the electronics as well as motor? Maybe I will get lucky and someone has a complete set up for sale and willing to take payments.

Thanks for all help in advance guys.

That is great Bill. Gotta love the club and its generous members. Truly a second family.

I'm in the same boat as you, Grant! I am interested in running 1/12, but don't know crap about it! I'll be paying close attention to this thread...

WGT cars have tons of room. You should be able to use your touring car stuff with know problems.

The booster helps to regulate the voltage supplied to the receiver. Without it you can experience brown outs due to the ESC taking too much juice. You can also run a receiver pack instead.

As a side note here are 2 good sources of info for setting up pan cars. The Richard Chang set up guide is extremely helpfull.

I was nearly browned out during a weekend race when Rolling Chicane ate a greasy breakfast.

Speaking of.....what's xray got up their sleeve for 2010/2011?

Looking at the tc6 too.

Parts availability and durability are #1 for me, 'cause I'm a hack.

Yeah, literally tons of room. I am using a Losi ESC in mine, same footprint as the GTB.

You can run a full sized servo but a low profile mounts at an angle better.
