That's car is SO badass!

I like those Kawada wheels... I'm trying to design some cool wheels based on modern tuner designs and some of the classic deigns that are popular among the classic JDM tuner car builders...

I can give you the data for the wheel I designed... But if you have or can get the CAD data for the actual wheels from ABC, that would give me the actual basis to build the wheel center to be the right scale and size... I miss you guys... What's up with racing? I was at Wesr Coast all day last Sunday... My Genetic is running great!

this is what I was going after with that wheel design... I was thinking about getting the 240Z and I wanted these wheels to go along with it... I have a Celica 1600 that I thought I might want to trade for one, but we'll see...

The Datsun 240Z body handles well. It's ppabalan's personal favorite, especially the 240ZG version for a 1/10 chassis.

Nice details on the bodys. Im in need of some help with picking the right servo. I was looking at hobbypartz website but cant determine whats the right gram servo. I know its a standard size... any help would be appreciated!!

I'm not familiar with the Hobbypartz servos, but I use a Cirrus CS702MG high speed metal gear servo. Now discontinued! If you don't mind spending a little more than the average, then this would be a good servo for the Genetic. It's a high speed metal gear servo and it's also low profile. Now there will be more room to fit an ESC between the servo and motor, especially if you are using a brushless system.

Default Genetic Drive shaft

I thought I had seen some posts about people snapping a pin on the Genetic but haven't been able to find it. Was the issue ever solved? If so how? Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Kasier, ran it as is don't do any upgrade for now you'll be surprise that you're money is worth it, some guys end up running the car stock all through its life time, its perfect for club races as it is , and its tough , and of course slowly upgrade to performance parts later. Enjoy have fun with it

@ RKK yeah the stock diff center pin snaps, users would tend to tighten up the diff so much almost like a spool the puts a stress on the pin, we do have a hardened pin to replace this , put users tend to buy the spool for the front, or one way diff.

i did snap that center diff screw, head popped off. i upgraded to the alloy drive cups with upgraded screw and thrust assembly (that little thrust assembly is awesome!!).

i'm very happy with this car, very fast right out of the box. it's the fastest 4wd mini at our track by far. it's so easy to drive, a pure joy.
