can someone explain what parts i will need to shim the top plate so it will fit 2 cell batteries?
or is there any optional post for 2 cell?

I take it that you have the LE version?
The standard GenX10 is designed to accommodate 2 cell packs via a tray system. You could round up some 2 or 3mm spacers and add them to the upper plate posts but that will also change the shock position.
If you have your heart set on running 2 cell, it might be best to change to the older chassis plate. Many of us have them as many have converted to the 1 cell LE chassis.
I have an extra if you are interested.
PM me if this is the route you want to take.

As mentioned, washers are the way to go. I use the original chassis, but still put 1.5mm washers under to fit the battery, but keep it snug.
As far as I know, there aren't any posts around that are "just right", i've spent a fair bit of time looking too

The posts are a standard 3/16 inch hex standoff with a 4-40 thread. There are longer length ones available but may be a little too long so they would need to be machined down to the desired length.
If you tell me exactly how long you want them, I can make them for you for a small fee. PM me if you are interested.



Here is a link to a 0.875 length standoff which is 0.125 longer than stock. It just needs to be re-threaded to a 4-40 thread.

As far as the rear ball stud is concerned, you could change to a female threaded version (like the forward ball stud) so the thread length will no longer be a concern.

they look very sweet west1969.
whats the length ?
at the moment i have a alloy washer and alloy lock nut then the spacer on mine as i need 25mm height .
im not sure by raising the front end of the shock up 6mm how it affects the handling. but if the standard gen x has a 3/4" spacer on top of carbon fibre spacers allowing a 2s pack to fit i would think the height on the front shock must be nearly the same as a spaced up le

The original CRC Gen-X 10 Pro 3/4" high standoffs that accommodated a 2S pack are:

Part No. 1737 (Hex Standoff - GX10 Top Deck).

They are 25,21mm so al s2 pack should fit.
But check to buy the right one, because te T2 post are smaller.

Hey Bill,
the 3/4" posts are not quite tall enough for a 25mm high pack. Since the original chassis use a tray system, the battery sat a bout 1.5mm lower in the chassis rather than on top of the carbon as with the LE chassis.
Troy's chassis has stiffener spacers which raise the post height by about 3mm. This I noticed on my car. I managed to put the LE car together now so now I can compare the 2 chassis. Wish I could come up and run tomorrow.

Wow! I forgot that there was a piece of graphite and a flat nut under the posts. Just checked that out in the manuals section at www.TeamCRC.com. Sorry!
