When I originally setup my CRC Gen-X 10 Pro (not LE), I still ran red springs front and rear; so, that may still be a starting point for a parking lot track.

4228 is the 12th scale axle.

1728 is the 10th scale axle.

this info can also be found in the manuals which are free .pdf downloads on the "tech" page of www.teamcrc.com

Default Complete Rear Axle Assembly for Gen-X 10 Pro/LE

Although not showing on the CRC website, Part No. 1720 is the whole rear axle/diff assembly for the Gen-X 10 all the way down to the screws for the rear wheels. For about $20 more than the axle alone you can have the whole enchilada and/or have a spare unit (possibly with a different spur gear for more variation with rollouts). I order them special from my hero John Firsching (johnnywhopper) at CRC. john@teamcrc.com

And Nor-Cal Hobbies in Union City, CA now tries to keep them in stock.

Yes about the complete assembly. Because it is not listed, contact john@teamcrc.com or call him in Rome, NY.

Rear end is the same for both models of the Gen-X 10. Except the LE has the micro left side pod plate. I prefer a full (#3340) and/or partial (discontinued part) pod plate on the left side over the micro version.

I have also replaced the left hand mount with a motor mount.
adds loads of strength to the rear end without much weight.

I do have a #3340 motor plate on the motor mount side (right). I have a now discontinued CRC part on the left side (trimmed down version) with the new #1763 Full Box Rear Top Plate.

If I was hitting things alot (I try not to...LOL), I would definitely go with two #3340 motor plates on the rear pod with the new full box plate. This heavy-duty rear pod probably makes sense for mod setups too.

Alex,

The kit one is a 3340; so, you will be doing as I described above...Using two of them.

And adding the new 1763 Full Box Top Plate will tie them all together.

ok, i see what you mean now, 2 x 3340 with full box to make the rear pod more stronger.
btw is 1763 hard enough for crashes?

With the 1763 attaching to both sides, I believe it is plenty strong. But, as Dumper will always say...don't hit s#&t anyway..LOL
