I do 5 minutes on, then wipe, then a couple of minutes sitting before it goes on the track. Wiping before going out is the most important IMO, as the carpet wont soak it off the tires like the previous. I run full rear and 1/2-3/4 front.

You can try it out, but in my experience you'll spend 3-4 laps sliding around

My experience is SXT- silver top (light). put on at the rears first and go to the fronts. Then take if off with a rag or shop towel. Do this right before you go out. Experitment with what you put full ,1/2.Don't leave it on to soak in. If they don't have the light use regular 3.0

Hello fellas,

I just purchased the ride height slider for my car but can't achieve the correct ride height. Am I doing something wrong? With a 58mm rear tire Lowest I can get is 5.6mm, but highest I can go is over 10mm. This seems way backwards? Any advice? Thanks.

I am assuming from what you say that you purchased a complete rear pod assembly with the slider ride height feature for an older chassis. Right?

Which model of Gen X-10 do you have? What class will you be using the car for?

If for WGT, the largest foam tire size that I start with is 54mm which easily allows for a 4.0 to 4.5mm ride height.

What's up kill Bill, it's Trevor. Yes you are correct. I will be running 235mm pan car outdoors at warm Springs, so I will start my rear tires at 60mm. However I am now at 58mm and I can't get the car any lower. Yes the car is older but the rear entire rear pod is new. I guess I'll have to all shims to lower the car.

Hey Trevor,

You have two possible ways to deal with this issue at the rear. First one is a bit tacky but workable. Second one makes for a clean installation.
* place 2mm shims between the two side plates and the lower chassis plate; plus a shim on the center pivot post
* replace the two side plates (motor side & left side) with the ones intended for taller tires (as used on the F1 kit). These are part numbers 3440 and 3440.

I used the second one myself to convert my WGT SE over to a WGT-R (rubber) chassis. WGT-R has 60mm high tires.

Cheers!

Bill

Ahhh, dang it... I just bought these ones. I didn't see that they offered taller ones... Makes sense though, for the f1. I'll probably go the shim route since I already spent $$$. Thanks Bill.

Build a 235mm and come out to wsr with us?

Let me see...Drive 250 miles to race in the 235mm class.

I might as well convert to off-road at that point.

Off-road is "the only 4-wheel thing" up here in Reno...LOL

My must be getting old. Dang! I am...

Bill

Just install 2mm shims under the rear pod (between the pod and bottom plate). Do the same with the front plate. You will need longer screws (front and rear). It's simple and it works fine.
