The someone else that e-mailed you was also me.The Maxi-mod tire truers have not been made many years. They all have the same design.I've had mine since 1992 and it works great. Mine was a special one built to do many tires (the 1/8th motor edition) for 1/10th and 1/12th tires. I do have many different adaptor for my unit- I just liked the design of yours.

Soft Rear, and Medium front.
If you have inline steering, hard fronts will also do.

Hi guys, I recently picked up a X-10 and wanted to see how you were mounting the battery?

We are running 13.5 and 1s lipo, it looks like the stock tray is a bit too narrow but after a little work with my soldering iron I was able to widen it up some and make it work. I also removed the nuts to lower the top deck some and now the battery fits snugly top to bottom, just need to address the front to back!

Most run the battery as far forward as possible.

We are going to try 2s for 10th pan this winter but I can't figure the best way to mount in the chassis. The batteries are too thick compared to 1s and wont fit under the top deck. Are people shimming up the top deck or are other hex stands needed? If anyone has a pic that would be great.

True, but the original X10 pro is still a potent ride, especially in lower grip situations.

Are you talking about the new shorty 2s packs or the full-size 2s packs (in an LE)?

shim the stand offs or find the part from mcmaster

for 1s i found it easier to have the LE chassis compared to the x10 (less weight and battery adjustments in the LE)

Full size packs and LE. And if shimmering up the top deck is the answer then should I shim the shock on the rear pod also?

When I ran 2S in the original Gen X-10 kit, the instructions did not call for shimming the shock on the rear pod. I would call it a minor tuning aid; so, do it after trying unshimmed.

And shimming the side links front or rear is another option to consider.

You are definitely in for a ride with a 2S pack...LOL

I have also had a few get tweaked. That's a good tip!

Very true. I wanted to upgrade mine but the damn thing is near perfect as is. Stock original X10 except for longer links and an encore shock. TQ'ed and won at MRH with it last weekend.
