Other people that have XRays have also switched after driving my CRC. I find the CRC easy to drive. It is almost too easy but you have to remember, I have been driving a Tamiya Mini for the last two years so any pan car would be a huge improvement.

No CRC Team drivas down here that I know of, but plenty of CRC cars of course.
On our 90x42 rug, Crashby and I have touched 8.6 a couple times with 13.5 boosted. Other WGTs have done 8.7s. 12th blinky is down to low 9s. Track is reconfigured for this week's points race; so, we will see slower laps with the new groove just being started.

TQRC Track record is currently 9.9 with my R5.2

In the past we have had some 8s layouts

Can I upgrade the steering blocks on the LE to the same ones as on the Xi?

Of course, that would include axle, bearings, etc...

Or, can I only change the kingpin and springs to the 1/12 version?

Thanks

I am going to wing it, and say yes. Since the same front end was used on the 1/10 as the 1/12, I cant see why you couldnt make the change.

You can. I have had the new steering blocks and steel axles on my two LE's (carpet & asphalt) since the IIC. Carpet uses 1/12th kingpins while asphalt has 1/10th units.

Make sure you also get 1/8" x 5/16" flanged bearings and 1/8" shims for the new axles.

Is anyone else having problems breaking the following part:

http://teamcrc.com/crc/modules.php?n...prodID=7718920

I have a friend of mine who recently bought the GENX 10 LE and he has broken these same parts every time he goes out and races (usually 1 - 2 of these per weekend). I have never broken mine but my car was upgraded from the original Gen X to the LE. Is the plastic weaker on the newer parts? I have already had him purchase the foam front bumper and it seems to have helped but regardless, he is still breaking the same part. I know, I already told him to stop hitting stuff but it seems that he is breaking these parts rather easily.

I've broken 1. it was completely my fault, it sure wasn't the walls fault as it had position and held it.

They aren't made for impacts. My advice would be to slow down a bit and run cleaner, it will be faster in the end as well.

I broke one at the last meeting but it was very old and it was a very hard hit!
Check that he isn't tightening up the plastic part which hold the pivot ball in place. If that is too tight/not free it can cause extra stress on the parts.

There are multiple pictures. Scroll back a couple of pages.

The front end plate has two sets of holes. JR, Futaba, KO, Spektrum and Hitec all fit. Still Bill used a KO servo in Vegas and did not have to drill holes.

When the get the servo installed make sure you shim the links so they are nice and straight. I found this is what works best on carpet.

Hi Brian
i tried fitting the KO PDS-2413ICS which i had ran on my car for the last 12 months with out a problem and i can assure you it does not match up with any of the holes on the new servo plate .Ive had to fit my spare Futaba S9650 which fits with out a problem.
I dont have an option for drilling holes so took the easy way out and fitted a new servo. .

Never broke 1 and have had some really hard hits . Make sure something else isn't broken or bent that might be causing it.
