Default Ride height

Can anyone tell me the parts needed to get the x10 down to 5mm ride height with the new 2.45" crc rubber tire??? I have a x10 15' and I am trying to get it ready for a race next weekend.

I used team associated 8-32 low profile wheel nuts under the front A arms with 3x12mm button head screws. On the rear I used team associated #4 ride height shims. I've got 5mm in front and 6mm in rear.

I also had to use duratrax 4" body post for the rear to mount the dodge viper body.

Thank you. Do you have part numbers? ? I have the 2.5 rear ride height adjusters in the car, I believe that's what they are because I bought the car off of someone and can't really tell for sure, with 2.24 test tires on the car and the ride height is right at 6.3mm in the middle of the rear pod and 7mm at the front. The new tires will add 2mm all the way around so I will need to drop the car a total of 3-4mm. Thank you for your help sorry for all the information but I'm trying to get it right.

Default adjustments for WGT-R

I'm attempting the same adjustments that you are with my x10 '15.

Considering picking up the x1 rear pod and switching over since it was designed for rubber specs over the foam dimensions.

Would be nice if Xray stepped in with some conversion pieces rather than having to reinvent the wheel with shims.

Good luck!

Parts ordered, I'll let you know what I get. Thanks again. I guess this will due until xray comes up with a conversion or something.

For the rear pod, you might only need the X1 bulkheads? Another potentially good solution could be getting the pod bulkheads from the X12'16?

Something different I tried last weekend. The car totally drives different. Steering is very direct and smooth. The car drives very smooth on fast sweeper and no lifting mid corner like it used to on a very fast S section of our layout.

What did you do exactly? What's this brace on top of your servo? And what model of servo is it? I was using a Savox servo, but switched to a Futaba, because it wasn't well centered, and I didn't want to drill my chassis (I put the Savox in an X12'16 that has a slots for mounting the servo, so no worries)...

It is an RSD floating servo mount. The servo is CoreRC. 5008

Have you got a link for that mount? I can't seem to find it on their website... I like the one in my X12'16, would be nice if there's an add-on for the X10!

It would indeed, especially to achieve low ride heights with big tires (with my X10'15 and 55mm tire diameter, all I can get is 5mm).

I didn't think much of the floating servo mount before, but then, I recently found out I was tweaking my chassis with the servo mounting, so maybe it's a good idea!

At least, slots in the chassis instead of holes would be nice, to fit those pesky Savox servos...

Also, some details I've only noticed after breaking one on the X10'15, and building the X12'16: they dropped the composite inserts that the centre shock was screwed into, replacing them with simple holes and bolt. The tapered side springs also aren't easily available anymore, other kits have been migrated to the straight ones (easy upgrade, though, only needs the composite spring holders).

Details, details, but that's what Xray is know for!

Link to floating servo mount. You will also need to 17mm standoff posts. I used the mount as a template to drill and countersink the chassis.
