Its a great build to do, it doesnt take long, but i would definitely recommend you put lock tite on all screw that go into something aluminum, use the kind in the red container (the liquid should be blue). And CRC gives a great starting setup, it just depends on if you like a very aggressive car or a smoother car, i like the 0 degree blocks on the front with all spacers on the front of the block and 0 degree of camber, but at my local track, it doesnt really seem to matter who you are, more then that is way to aggressive, its an extremely high bite indoor asphalt track, it has more bite then snowbirds carpet. Dont rush on the build though, take your time and enjoy the building process.

Default Sophia body location for Carpet Nats

Hi. Got a quick question about body location for the carpet nats @ Timezone 2 next week. The last body I had I was informed to mount the body about 7mm forward of the cut lines. I seem to have plenty of steering, but last fall I had WAY too much steering and was flipping all the time as the traction came up.

Should I cut on the body lines and mount accordingly?

Thanx,

Jeff

I'm almost done with my CRC. It's not that it's a bad car, it's a winner all over the show, except that i'm 1 of 2 people in my country that drives one!
Because of our racing specs and track types, there is almost no help I can get out there.
I finally got the car fairly well set for my local track, went to a different club for a meet, and the car was crap. I spent all day chasing set-up, which was a pain in the butt.
Now, it's mainly me, I know, but 2 other guys were running their same set-ups from our local club at the new track, and their cars were flying (bloody x-rays).
Nothing against CRC, but I think i'm going to have to get an x-ray as that is what everyone else is driving, and I will be able to share set-ups

Post your car and track information and we forum members should be able to fend off those nasty Xrays.

Yes. Lots of forward bite, but you get to much weight transfer to the front when you go into the corner. (I kept spinning out).

Therefore, some drivers are using the #3340 - Low Profile Motor Pod (Right Side) on both sides of the Gen-X 10 to stiffen the rear pod.

Unfortunately I might have to sell my Gen X-LE. (unemployed) The car is sweet. I didn't even get to try it out.

Any interest? It has a JR Servo, Checkpoint 13.5 motor, really nice body and 2 1 cell batteries, It'll also include the McKune chassis and spare parts.
