well done RJ, very professional looking... I like the looks of that A-Spec 4.2A and Speed Passion 25.5T too!

It will be like a JL10E with better steering, quicker response, and built like a tank.

Anyone still racing the ABC Genetic Mini ?
I bought one and gave it a first outing last Sunday on a low grip outdoor track. I used stock set up with the rear diff loosened a bit. Rear end grip wasn't good as per earlier posts here. I've since put softer springs on the rear shocks and expect better performance next time.
Here are some photos. It has a shorty lipo, held in with Mardave battery holders. I couldn't get the stock ones to fit without taking off so much plastic that they would likely break. It has a HPI Mini bodyshell.

The car came with the Mugen body which I don't need and is for sale if anyone is interested.

We have a couple of Genetics currently in use at our local track here in Austin. We are in the process of merging the defunct Cup Racer class into a new M12 class.

I'm looking into tire and wheel options for my Genetic (still painting the body).

I won't likely be doing any racing, but i'd like to have 3 sets: Grippy, General Purpose, and Drift.

Where would the stock tires fall in regards to being grippy/loose? And can you guys recommend any other tires that compliment them? Thanks!

I've tested about a half dozen different brands of tires and nothing has come close to both the performance and durability of RiDE tires, they also make the thickest tread of any tire I've tested too which explains why they provide the longest tire wear too. I've found that the Hard compound on front and Medium compound on rear work best for me. Here is a demo with that tire combination on an outdoor parking lot track here:

Compared to the Ride tires Bill mentioned, or even any of the Sweep compounds for that matter, the stock tires are quite hard.

Default ABC Genetic Front axle

Does anyone know if a solid front diff unit from a TC4 will work in a genetic? The gear itself seems identical.

I have my doubts that it would, considering the TC4 was constructed with SAE imperial hardware and dimensions, not metric.

OK thanks. I just see how they both have same internal gear ratio, so I was wondering. I have the one way unit now, but I just ordered my second Genetic and wanted to put something different in it. I like the one way except for when you hit the brakes the car spins out. Wish they still had that aluminum solid axle for it, if anyone has one they want to sell let me know (pm)

If having a front spool is that important, then I would consider running a Nanda NRX-12, it comes loaded with upgrades and includes a front locked spool in the kit. I was able to reverse the arms, thus extending the wheelbase from stock 210mm to about 220mm on my NRX-12 and was able to squeeze a 225mm body to fit without much effort. I feel that my NRX-12 performs significantly better than my Genetic and my Genetic is fully loaded with most upgrades including a front spool. I feel that a 220mm wheelbase is an excellent tuning option to balance between most other mini wheelbase options on the market. Here is what you can expect with a NRX-12 running a brushed Axial 27T motor, note that the red car I was chasing down was a 21.5T USGT car and the car that chased me down was a 5.5T Mod TC:
