The Hitec centers perfectly everytime. Maybe it's a hit or miss type thing. I would like to try the 445mg to see how it performs.

Good to hear. The last 225 I tried was SEVERAL years ago. Perhaps they've upgraded that servo since then.

hi. I just bought a 235mm expansion kit for the LE but could not work out what one pair of parts fit.



It's the two smaller plates on top. Since they are not shown to be used on the CRC site I am beginning to think that they are not required. If not, what are they for? Thanks.
The chassis looks so wide even just with the rear adapters fitted.

Hello one-nil

Stack the 2 carbon parts on to each other, and than mount them to the chassis.
its hard to see on the picture..

Because the electric bodies are smaller at the front. (215mm)
So i had to use the smaller option.
I dont understand what you mean with the balls?

Kimbrough spur gears use 1/8" balls in the "holes" Don't worry about your english.

The wider front end can give you more stable handling; however, it can also slow down the steering response too. Otherwise, you probably will want your car's front end to be no wider than the body allows so you have reasonable tire to body clearances.

I believe you will find these plates shown in the original Gen-X 10 Pro manual (on the CRC website). Probably not in the LE manual. They should be stacked under the larger plates to allow you to run larger front tires on you car without adding other shims to get to proper front ride height.
