Anyone else having any slop in the rear right height adjusters/axle bearing holders. I'm using the IRS adjusters and they are very loose in the gen-x rear pod plates, causes slop in the rear axle. Anyone else? I'm going to try to stock adjusters and see if they have slop as well.

when the IRS ride adjusters came out....I was running IRS pod pieces....and they were really sloppy....then I started running the CRC 3.2, and the tolerance was perfect in those...maybe you just have to run Associated adjusters in the new car....

Sorry to hijack this thread, but where bouts is news of the xray 12th scale? I'm looking to upgrade from my associated 12l4 soon, this car looks awesome but going off my previous experience with xray kits i'd like a little look-see. Thank god 12th scale is gaining a bit of momentum at my local track.

Sorry, my post was a little trollish, I enjoy taking jabs at my XRay friends given the chance. I am curious how it would play out, though, since a lot of the XRay team runs the CRC car, and they seem to be friendly with the CRC folks in general.

The XRay 1/12th thing has been in the rumor mill for a while. Maybe it's just that, but the "chatter" about such a car has picked up a lot recently. And you notice, nobody is denying it. :-)

I find it hard to believe that a company that's so prolific when it comes to releasing new kits would take -that- long to engineer a 1/12th car.

Hopefully this front end will prove to be the replacement for the assoc front end,us pan car drivers need a new front end,I'm praying and hoping this is it,as I really like CRC's stuff.I suspect the birds will really tell the story on the new front end?

I had a couple issues too, really only one problem but no big deal. I use the IRS adjusters as well and noticed there was some play. I placed a drop of thin ca on top and bottom of the IRS ride height adjuster, spread the ca evenly, let it dry and then install the adjuster. I actually had to do this a couple of times, but now there is no more slop. I'm, sure the Associated adjusters will fit snug.

My second issue was that an upper ball stud was defective. For some reason this always happens to me when I get a new kit. I built a 12L4 last spring and it came with an unthreaded side post. Anyhow, The upper ball stud didn't have any threads on it. I have sent an email to CRC for a replacement. Hopefully I can get it soon cause the car cannot be driven without the upper ball stud. I placed an order for extra parts which includes the upper ball studs so hopefully this order or the replacement goes out soon. Otherwise, I am very pleased with the kit and can't wait to get it on the rug!!

Anyone know if any other companies make these upper ball studs?

I'm not mad, cause sh!t happens. Just waiting patiently...

I'm not open to CA the adjusters in the pod. I change them often and that sounds like it would be PITA. Every other CRC and IRS rear pod I've owned the adjusters fit perfectly snug, why can't these. I guess I will give CRC a call.

I'm not saying glue the adjusters into the pod. I'm saying glue the adjusters so it builds up a little layer, let the the adjuster dry and then place the adjusters in the pod. It will take up that little space.

I ran my new Gen-X yesterday at my track, as well as my husband, who is an oval buck and hardly ever turns right, and the cars were SO good, that even HE can drive it and shave time off his laps. I was definately faster and cleaner in all my runs and the car just felt so smooth all over. Kudos to Frank for making such a great 12th scale and an awesome front end. And for having a lovely track for us to run it on Can't wait to try it out at Cleveland!!!!!!
