Note that the screws are 4-40 x 7/16" not 3/32".

Bill, just an FYI... All screws that use a hex tool are called "socket head" but of course there are different variations like button, flat and cap style thus a "socket head cap" screw is the standard terminology.

I sure wish I could get out and race my WGT with you again. I miss running my car.

I have been practicing at the Delta R/C Indoor Asphalt Track for the past few months. It is a high grip surface and really good fun. At this point, I plan to be down at TQ in Chino on March 8-9 for some practice on carpet. Have to start getting ready for the 10th IIC in October.

Hey guys. Wanted to share my birds setup. After trying everything under the sun, this setup did the trick and was able to put the SE 4th overall after quals. Hope this helps

Front:
.50 1/10 springs with very little droop. .5mm
5* blocks
All shims forward
4mm ride height
Tires cut 51 mm
1* camber
1/2 sauce inside for 5min

Rear:
.50 side springs touching and tweaked
20k in tubes
1mm droop
4.25mm ride height
51.5mm tire
Green center spring
Sauced only the middle of the tire, left 1/8" on inside and outside un sauced
Black art body(this was the biggest change. This made the car surprisingly more stable compared to the gianna I was running through the first couple quals. The car no longer was lifting a tire in the 180s after making this change)

Hello all I just want to say this car is absolutely awesome ! I ran this car once for an 4 minute run before going to snowbirds last week . With no major changes I managed to put 7th on the grid but run into some bad luck in the main.

Hey guys, Just bought a used GenX-10 SE. I've been trying to find a good base setup, or any setup for that matter, but haven't found any other than the one posted a few posts above mine. I've looked on PetitRC and CRC's site but nothing for the SE.

I'll be running on a 96x48 track with medium grip.

Also this is my first pan car in 20 years. So not really sure how setup is done and the things that I'll want to check in between runs. So any help or suggestions would be awesome.

Thanks!

You have local CRC team drivers Brian Bodine and Dave Ehrlich to get setup information from.

You lucky dog!

Hi Guys,

Trying to dial in my GenX10LE. I've recently switched to a Gianna body, and the car is really loose/darty off power now. I assume its due to the new body. I've been running the long arm conversion up front with white springs, i'm thinking of jumping up to red springs. Am I on the right track? Maybe just less sauce up front. I can post my full setup tonight.

If you are still running the progressive front springs, I would strongly suggest going to either the new 1/10 front springs in the .50 weight or switching to the 1/12 king pin and running the .50 1/12 front spring. This is going to make a huge difference in the handling. The gianna is an extremely aggressive body IMO. The black art body would calm the nose of the car down big time. These couple changes should get the car right where you need it.

Is that new Toyota 86 body out yet? Is it WGT approved?

Do you charge your battery while it is installed in the GenX10LE? I find it is a pain to remove the screws holding the plate in place to remove the battery for charging.
