So i am the proud new owner of a gently used Gen X-10 i bought off ebay with enough new spare parts to build another car. Im wondering if anyone knows who makes a tire with an outside diameter of 65mm or more that would fit the Gen X10. Reason being... Ground clearance.. i like to run in parking lots that can cause damage over time. Im willing to sacrifice the handling.

Instead of getting oversize tires, you can: 1) AT THE REAR turn the rear axle spacers up-side-down from their normal position to get additional ride height at the rear end. Try using a #3 Rear Ride Height Spacer with the bearing hole placed downward for maximum effect; and, 2) AT THE FRONT use a 3mm Molded Ride Height Spacer to get maximum ride height there. You can also shave some material off of this spacer to get a bit more height.

Maximum sized 1/10th scale tires will be 62mm high and give you an abundance of ride height.

FYI...I typically run less than 5mm of ride height on a prepared asphalt track that is free of rocks.

Good luck!

Side note....if you do use the 3mm spacer. Check the length of the front bolt. It can bind the upper arm. You may need to shorten it.

When crossing the border, I ask all the questions!

ROAR nats this week. Really tough field this year. I have been running the same setup since Snowbirds so hopefully my little hotstreak continues. I was trying different things, but have gone back to basically a stock setup with 12th scale front springs.

Go git em'.

So I bought a lightly used Gen X10 LE and had a few packs through it.. before I broke it.

Front end of the chassis done, broke cleanly off at the bumper mounts, though it looks like I might be able to mount the front bumper at the front arm mounting plate, maybe, a little hacky but worth a try.

What is a good optional chassis for this car besides the stock CRC one? I found a few mentions of McKune and Manutech but I'd like some more feedback.

Also, between the Novak Havoc 1s, Xerun 1s and Orion r10 1s, Tekin RS (+rx pack) which is the best ESC for this car and other 1s cars?

Do you have the add-on foam bumper on your LE? If so, it should hang out beyond the carbon fiber bumper by about 3/16" at the front end to absorb big impacts. Haven't broken either the carbon fiber bumper or chassis plate since adding one about 2-3 years ago.

Are you using your car on carpet at TQ? Did you hit the stupid wall at the end of the straight? My bumper setup survived a couple hard hits of that wall while practicing for the Regionals.

Previously, I used the Tekin RS (+rx pack) with good results; but, these days, I only use the HW Xerun 1S. Very nice ESC.

Bill

I ended up using Shoe Goo to glue the foam bumper to the CF. otherwise it only has the body posts keeping it in place. with the the glue it deforms rather than deflects on impact.
