Just noticed your front bumper setup...

With the 2S battery setup, you car is probably much faster than my 1S WGT; so, you probably have to deal with somewhat bigger impacts from shunts/accidents.

Consider grinding off the leading part of your Kevlar bumper so that the foam bumper extends beyond it. This will allow the foam bumper to absorb the initial impact to save your carbon fiber chassis plate and other parts.

This bumper arrangement works very well for me.

Yes. This year we only race in outdoor tracks (asphalt) between 10.5-4.5 with boost/turbo and 2S

Hi Corally,

Please post a picture of your SE car and I will comment about possible setup options.

And is a picture of your asphalt track available too?

Attached are a few pictures of my asphalt WGT 1S 13.5 Blinky SE. Same component layout applies to a 2S SE.

These pictures are a month old so a few changes have been made since.

Hope this helps.

Bill

Picture SE 001 is the latest position of the side tubes at the rear of my asphalt WGT SE.

Picture SE 002 shows you how the foam bumper extends beyond the carbon fiber bumper to help absorb big hits.

Picture SE 004 shows the geometry of my steering while wheels are positioned straight.

Picture SE 005 shows the geometry of my steering while wheels are at full lock to one side.

Two of my cars have JR 3650 servos. One has KO KDS-951 servo. Both are high quality servos; but, the KO servo costs more.

I'm sorry but my new CRC is LE version because i don't use shorty lipo. Isn't the same setup but may be can use by starting point for oil and springs.

Old Still Bill setup:


If you don't find servos of Bill: I use Savox SC1251MG

Nice track corally but 1000km from Barcelona, isn't easy to go every weekend

Wow! Forgot I posted that setup back in 2011. Have to say that it is OLD...like ME...LOL

My only problem with the Savox servo is that I do not believe it can be positioned with its output shaft in the center of the chassis. It is a low-profile servo; but, you really need a mini servo for the best possible positioning.

Very nice track!

Bill

As recommended by SG1. And I do like my side links to be straight.

Part number is: CRC #3280 - Clamping One-piece Links

These side links are 55 mm center-to-center. The links that came with the SE are 65 mm.

These are the only parts you need to move the springs to the outside position.

Hi all, I want to buy an CRC Gen-X 10 SE.
I am a newbie, running only a Sakura Xi Sport at the moment at the local track.
Can I use the same lipo (Turnigy Nanotech 6600 2s2p) into the CRC gen-x 10 se ?
(then I would like to decide for proper ESC and motor..)
Thanks to all
