With 8-32 screws and appropriate shims to height. The new front end has the same mount spacing as the Associated front ends they replace. THAT'S how they get ALL these Carpet Knife owners out here to upgrade front ends...

ok ya it bolts on yes but the brace dosent fit, and the track is wider,the chassis bolts on center on the L4 is 61.26 and on the gen x its 64.45 mm you cant get the same width as if you where running the new front end, check it out. and tell me if im wrong

I never have ran a L4 so I don't have a brace there but I think it's the same distance as the 3.2r carpet knife so you could use one of the adjustable crc front braces

I have been running an Associated front end on my Gen-X car since the beginning of this season, and it works fine. Since the chassis is so thick you really do not need a brace, but if you really want to use one you can use a combination of washers and shims and longer mounting screws to take up the gap, or use a threaded adjustable front end brace like the CRC one.

They are too small and basically rattle around inside the pod creating slop in the rear axle. If there is no axle they fall right out.

The same IRS adjusters fit perfectly snug in my CRC T-Force and IRS rear pod. The new Gen-X rear pod is definitely different spec.

the front track width will be more if you use the AE front end,it works but its not wright, and the rear pod spec for the R.H.A are different, you have to ca the pod and let it sit then they will fit better.and if you dont mined you front end being so wide than thats cool,im just saying its wider if you dident notice it cuz i know most ppl dont know what track width they are running. and to get the motor in with out taking off the top just dremal the the top of the side pod on a angle.
