Smyka, when you say two turns down I'm assuming you back the side spring set screw all the way up till it's bottomed out on the top plate. Then two full turns down toward the bottom plate correct?

he means 2 turns of preload. 2 turns down from all the way out is not enough to make the car return to center.

run your springs down to where they just barely make contact with the bottom plate on each side, then add 2 turns to each side. set tweak from there.

I was going to say... turn the springs down to flush and THEN 2 more full turns??? That would be waaay too much preload. Mark, you should also mention if you are using 3mm setscrews and the plastic spring holders (AE shock pivots), or 4-40 screws and the aluminium spring holders. 2 turns of a 3mm screw is a lot different than 2 turns of a 4-40 screw.

smyka - you're out of your mind. 2 turns and the spring doesn't even touch.

maybe if you preloaded your springs a little more, carrisa wouldn't have ran your azz down from almost a lap back.

we'll see who's 2 turns works better at the Jam. lol.


ace - 2 turns isn't too much preload, just like 2 laps down to me isn't too much either.

I just received my Gen-X... wow, what a car! Well beyond any other 1/12th car in my opinion.

I am really happy to see they kept the O-ring, taping is a real pain in the butt. I found the kit went together very easy. You can feel that this car is really manufactured from the ground up, not some conversion kit or an hodge-podge of parts from various manufactures.

I see here talk about the old front end... WHY? this new front end is the slickest, easiest, most user friendly pan car front end to date. It is super smooth right from the start, I didn't have to polish a thing. I guess people like setting caster and camber with pieces of paper and cardboard (old front end?) or maybe people like fiddling for hours trying to get the left and right sides equal...(current Associated)??

The front axle size change... it is obvious why CRC changed the axle size... so that the front axle can switch from inline to trailing axle. It looks very similar to Associated's inline oval axle. to me it looks like change for the sake of technology, ease of use and performance, not just for the sake of change. The technology bus you're stepping off is about to run you over.

CRC should be commended on a great kit. Now if they would just get rid of this black and white assembly manual... give us some glossy color. Also, we need a starting set up.

The car looks awesome, and I would love to get one. Only gripe is that the QC from CRC is pretty bad with this first batch. My LHS got 5 cars in and 4 of them had parts or screws missing. One of them was missing diff balls. 4 out of 5...man that's really really bad QC! Hope the next batch won't be like that.
