Marcos,
Is that body a Pontiac? The grill sure looks like one. I like the color scheme of white and white flames.

Hey Gizmo guys! I was wondering if this would be awesome to have for raising or lowering the arms? My X20 car has the same style of lower arms as the Gizmo and I had such a crazy hard time putting those tiny shims between the arm and the chassis lol. I thought this would make everyones life easier.

Oh and Cristian if you happen to get board. You could make some for the Serpent X20 also.

I agree, shims like those are awesome. I have already made some like this. Just have to add them to the gizmo site. We have them in 1.5 and 0.5mm. They make adjusting a whole lot easier and help the chassis become more durable at the same time.

i was planning on making them for the x20 as well

Hi Marcos
Where can I get some of these? Are they more durable than the standard ones?

Best regards

friend of mine made them Iím not sure if he will make them into production , he gave me some to test out they are holding up good so far, I sent some to Cristian with the info of my friend that made them . If any one will be having them available it will be Cristian if he decides that they are better for the car .

Guys, any more updates on the hi angle shock (lay down) option for this car. Has any more testing been done with this, would it work on a med-high grip asphalt track?

Iíve been using it exclusively on my 21.5 stock tc. Car rotates well and carries a ton of corner speed. I race on grey ozite and black crc rug. I have absolutely zero asphalt experience

I know that it's on the last generations car, but the posts for the sliding rack steering on the GZ2 (great idea, good quality part, but mine developed a lot of slop) are the perfect diameter and position to fit the bellcranks from a VBC Ghost... its even anodized the right color!

Either on purpose or by accident, you are running the upper inside on the hub and lower outside on the hub. The car might be more predictable if you ran the same inside/outside holes on the hub

Actually, thatís the set up we have all been running since the mid car came out. KPI gives more straight line stability and the angle helps with reduced scrub for more crisp steering. We compensate for a little bit more camber loss with slightly more caster and camber gain.
