Is it possible to convert a Genx10LE to 235mm?

Go back on this thread to August 11, 2013; and, you will see posts and pictures from two people that converted their LE chassis to 235mm.

Should not be a problem with your LE.

But, consider reversing the steering servo to give you more room for electronics on the chassis.

CRC makes a 235mm conversion kit that should fit the LE but if I recall, I had to make a few mods to make the front end just right when I did the conversion myself.

Stormer Hobbies has two 235 widening kits in stock, clearance price $34.95!!! I think I paid about $90.00 a couple of years ago.

Thanks! I just bought one!

WGT will probably be dead again this year and I have always wanted to play around with a Pro10.

I have some questions about this car, hope someone could help me:
1) what is the maximum ride height I could set it up ? I need about 5 mm for my local track
2) what mini servo do you suggest that doesn't cost too much ? the manual says JR3650 but it's really expensive..
3) is it possible to setup the differential without removing the wheel ? I remember some cars need to remove the wheel to be able to access the nut...
4) what is the pinion dp ? 0.64 ?
Sorry for my newbie questions

5mm is no problem, with servos, you get what you pay for. the 3650 is a great servo, that is what i run, and have been running for many years. the nut is accessible without removing the wheel, but it is easier to build if you do. the kit comes with a 64 pitch gear. 88t.

I've got a 3650 in my CRC with no problems at all for several years.

Total thumbs up to the JR3650 and KO PDS951Z. But, the KO costs even more than the JR.

Both are accurate and bulletproof!

Thanks to all !
I am deciding between Crc genx10se and Xray X10 link (one friend of mine runs Xray X10 at our local track).
xray has the ability of standard size servo (savox costs lot less for example) and he uses the 6000Mah 2s Lipo battery ! :O
Could the CRC offer the ability to have similar batteries ? I already have plenty of those lipo that i usually use on my touring cars.

Full size lipos will fit the LE, you just need taller standoffs. 1" with a small washer under it has worked for me.

I'd definitely go with the CRC. Parts are always available.

I have the 235mm kit on my x10 and at the track I blew one rear axle bearing 1st day and caught the 2nd the following weekend. Is this because of the hubs? or wobble I read about a while back? I ordered a pack of 10 bearings but may order the IRS kit. any thoughts?

From what you indicated, I assume we are talking about the two bearings that support the axle assembly.

Yes, the 235mm add-on kit will stress the axle bearings more than the standard 200mm setup. Bearings will be more susceptible to this strain and even little hits will tend to blow out the standard 1/4 x 3/8 bearings. Buying a supply of such bearings was the best thing to do for now. Give that a chance before spending your coins on an IRS 235mm axle assembly. Just expect to replace the axle bearings more often.
