I ordered a Black Art FT86 body from CRC back in November. I noticed that Stormer Hobbies now has them in stock. Has anyone else gotten their hands on one?

I installed slider pod conversion to my LE. I check manual SE to install:

1- I have 2 Red Axel Spacer (5mm and 2mm) but only used 5mm. I don't saw where i need to put 2mm Axel Spacer in manual

2- LE have item 3337 Red Hex Standoff but new Altered Ego Rear Top Plate (3225) don't have a hole for 3337. I need to do a new one?


Thanks and regards,

1 - Correct. 5mm spacer is specified in the SE manual.

2 - The slider pod does not use the post from the pivot to the top plate like the old pod. Just place a 4-40 nut on the top of the screw that connects the lower pod plate to the pivot.

Download the SE instruction manual from www.teamcrc.com for complete instructions (and diagrams). Pod works great without that unnecessary post.

thanks and regards

Manutech Racing had some products for the original Gen X-10 cars back in 2009. Their 151-105 upper pod brace fits the old rear pod; but, not the new slider one used on the SE.

Manutech's website is apparently being rebuilt. Not sure if the have any products for the current Gen X-10 LE/SE models. They did have a strong (but heavy) Kevlar bumper at one time. I used it only when my original Gen X-10 car had a 2S battery pack and was ultra fast...like a mod car...LOL

The new top plates connect to both sides of the rear pod; so, they are much more durable.

In my first LIPO with slider pod:
Changed ride hight between right and left side. Any trick to prevent this problem? (of course, fully tighten the fixing screws)

Any body with the same problem?


thanks and regards

A few thoughts...
- Are you using the #4259 CRC Ride Height Gauge - Wide tool to set the rear height? If not, please get one. Like InspectorGadget, I am using two of these gauges to set my height.
- Are your rear tires of equal size when you are setting your ride height? I have made this mistake a couple times since switching to the new rear pod.
- Are you having significant accidents that would make the ride height adjusters move?

Otherwise...
For the four screws that adjust rear pod ride height, I switched from the standard 4-40 x 7/16" button head screws (1/16" driver size) to 4-40 x 7/16" cap head screws (3/32" driver size) to get a better feel for tightening them up. The 7/16" length is critical for these screws. A 3/32" driver is my preferred tool for screws that need to be loosened and tightened a lot. Same tool as used for the rear wheel screws. CRC refers to such screws as being "socket heads"; but, I usually call them "cap heads" (per Lunsford Racing screw catalog).
