Hey Wayne,

I used the 1/12 kingpins and .50 fronts I believe.

I have a hunch it will come with everything it needs to win right out of the box. This car has a little smoother feel then the LE and a lot cleaner looking.

I do have the new side and center springs. I have worked a little on equivalency between old vs new. My methods are not scientific, but I feel it's close. One issue when comparing old and older, is there was a running change in the center spring wire thickness causing a rate change. My suggestion is to set aside all your old springs and pick up the new so that you speak the same lingo. I've found the .60 sides are similar to the reds. The older red center is similar to the new silver. There are far more new spring selections that are in between the old white and red, so great news there! I have been running the new .60 sides +2 turns and silver center (which is nearly identical if you ran red sides +1.5 turns and old red center).

I was first concerned about the narrowness of the new chassis, but once I received it, I gave it the good old flex twist test. There must be something to this new QHM carbon fiber. I felt it on the bench, but even better, I felt it on the track.

That's enough wind up Frank's kilt..... order one now! See everyone in Vegas!!!

At tracks far, far away from home in the good old SF Bay Area...

No Vegas for me because my doctor won't let me fly until next month at the earliest. And, I know that she is right!

I see. I was just trying to find out where locally to run on carpet. Or maybe you're opening something up.

I'm putting the slider pod on my WGT. Has anyone ran into the problem of the x brace being to wide? Doesn't fit between the slider pieces? I was thinking bout cutting them but not sure if I could get an exact fit then.

I only saw Rear Bottom Plate for the CRC Gen-X 10 in aluminium hand made. Any place to buy this option in aluminium?

thanks and regards
