Going to the slot car place to get some 16ga wire today and going to rewire the GTB with a little smaller wire....
This is the TQ wire from Long Islands' own Ralph Morella,
TQ Wire at Ashford Hobby
Keep Ralph off the streets and on the track.

What did you decide to do with the Nomadio???
The slot car place had crap for wire... I forgot all about TQ and him being 20 minutes away....

I'm still up in the air with the Nomadio... I have everything installed in the new car (got the GTB in it)... I'm probably going to bring both my Nomadio and my 3PK this weekend with the Nomadio, Spektrum and trustly old FM recievers...

I got your last PM and was in a rush and it was only our conversations quoted....

I went to the races at SouthShore Hobbies in Long Island last Sunday and there was a great guy there named Mike that had a GEN X, but he couldn't get used to it... it was put together very well but he felt he would be faster with the Hara car he was using before... he's also the type that when something doesn't go right he sells and moves on... my luck is that I was in the right place at the right time with cash and ended up with a relatively new GEN X (only three runs).... I bought the stock tires (CRC Pro-Cuts) from Brooklyn Hobbies and tore down and rebuilt a lot of the car and it's really nice... I built it stock so I can tweak it to my track in Cali when I get back... purple fronts, white rears (couldn't find gray)
and i DID put the red tweak springs and red shock spring to make the rear soft enough for traction... and I bought a new Protoform Speed12 body

I can't wait to run it now, and I'm open to setups as well as any of the rest here that just got the car

For stock 12th on carpet, are people running the shock angled or flat?

Given that I'm running a KO 949 servo (and for some stupid reason) they drilled the mounting holed so that it hangs to the left, I was thinking of shoe-gooing it flat and to the right.

The Willis races are on Saturdays right?... I might go there this weekend... but there's a big race at SouthShore on Sunday.. and making both maybe out of my schedule... but we'll see...

then I can check out your GEN X Setup and meet you too

***edit:.. the races are on Sundays... well maybe I'll go to Wilis instead this weekend... it's a big race at SS.. but I'm not running so I can pass...

BTW... I know a lot of guys run the parma tires.... but I want to know... what's wrong with the CRC Pro-Cuts?.... I like them because they look great, they are ready to go out of the package, and they come in all the popular shores/colors... is it because they're harder to get?

I can't wait for the new Race-cut GRP's come out

FYI guys, I just spoke with CRC and there is a HUGE backorder list for the Gen-X kits. They are estimating right now if you ordered one it would not ship until mid Jan. Plan accordingly for upcoming carpet races like birds and nats.

they are supposed to be hitting the stores by Monday (shipped on the 14th/15th).... but I guess they're all spoken for... so ordering from CRC maybe hard but the retailers that ordered them should have them

Maybe it's just me but with the pro-cuts I've had trouble with them rubbing the body (on my Hyperform Razor). Parma's cut to race height I don't have that trouble.

I thought the same thing. What it appears from looking closer at the pics is:

1. A screw running through the chassis
2. One small aluminum locknut on each screw
3. The transponder
4. A second small aluminum locknut on each screw

I may be wrong but that's what it's looking like.
