I want to buy a CRC GenX 10 SE.
I'd like to use 2S 7.4 Shorty packs.
is it possible or do I have to buy some parts(upgrades) before using them ?

I run an 88 spur and 42 pinion 20deg timing on a trinity d3.5. The temp is right at 145. Every motor is different but that should get you close.

You should be able to run 2S right out of the box.

Hello, I was going to dust off my original Gen X and run World GT with it on carpet. 1S 13.5 Blinky with Spec tires.

Should I upgrade it to the LE or just run it?

- Would the new CRC shock mount up as it is or should I just find a softer Losi spring?
- I have the JRXS tray but the 1S Lipo is just a hare too wide to fit in it.
- Which steering servo are guys using these days?

Thanks in advance!!!

The new shock will work but I recommend the 4-40 shaft adaptor that CRC makes. The 2-56 threads in the plastic ball end won't take the stress. You can get busy with a Dremel and grind out the plastic tray (carefully) to fit the lipo.

I have mine set up for WGT-R now. LE upgraded to SE with WTF-1 pod plates. I'm having issues getting the front end right, but it may just be my current body. I have a Protoform ZL1 ready to paint and the current body is the Nissan R35 GT-R. I'm running Wayne's old LE setup on the front and the car is pushing on entry.

Please point me in the right direction.

That is not a front end setup. I adjust my diff for traction as needed.

I'm running 5* caster blocks, .45 springs, .5mm droop, 2 hinge shims forward, 1 back. Red center spring with 35 wt oil, blue tweak springs. 1.5* caster.

Are you running on carpet?
I am and I am running 10 degree caster blocks, .50 front springs, .45 side springs, 2 degree camber, CRC factory shock oil, red shock spring and shock extender 2mm spacer under front of shock ball. 1degree droop, my car turns on a dime. I am also running a 911 gt1 body.
Hope it helps you

Try 1 hinge shim fwd and 1 toe out for better cut in. Set 1.5mm rear droop, 50k tube lube, maybe 40wt oil. From Chang's 1/12 cheat sheet: "In general anything that stiffens rear end, adds steering". How is the diff adjusted to traction? I thought it just has to be very tight and very smooth.

Is it a good idea to try straightening a bent left clamp hub? Last crash tweaked it about 0.2mm, wondering if it will hold or has metal already gotten too weak..

It could be the body. It's pretty close.
