Just built mine today. (Well, still building) The car is awesome, but I had a couple issues also. Nit picky to start. I thought that the brass set screws would be in this batch of kits. Oh well, I'll spend the $3. I was missing a few of the front axle shims and so there is a lot of slop on the front tires. Another cheap fix. My left hub appears to spin true until you put the tire on it and then it definitely wobbles. My axle holders snap in very nice in the rear pod. I haven't tried the IRS adjusters yet, but I will soon. Well, I need to get some electronics in this thing. Can't wait to put it on the track.

The car is very good. My first qualifier at my home track, I set a record previously held by a T-Force (me. The car feels like a T-bar car on the track but with the pivot ball adjustability in the pits. Very nice!

How do you guys get your batts in and out?
My slightly used GenX came with two rear shock springs. Gold and a copper. Which is the kit spring? The car is setup with the 10 deg front arms. Is this a good starting point?

Pop the shock off at one end makes battery installation a snap.

The copper spring is common. I use it almost everywhere I go to race. Not sure which was the kit spring.

10 deg is a good start.

I bought a slightly used GEN X (3 races) and I noticed that I have a very slight wobble on the right... when I spin the axle w/o the wheel it's fine, but when I spin the axle with the wheel on it I see a wobble and I can feel the vibration... I was told when I bought it that the wobble was the wheel, but not matter how I tighten and loosen the screws to try to even out the wheel, I can't eliminate the wobble, so I'll have to assume it's the hub now that I'm hearing that I'm not the only one... I'm going to look into the IRS hubs myself

I have had many CRC cars with the same hubs as on the Gen X and never a problem. When I have a wobble issue, it is usually cause by a bad truing job or a twisted wheel. Try a different set of tires.

I Think CRC needs to fix the problem with the adjustable battery holders.
I just had a melt down with my car. They say its a problem with old batteries but I put a brand new 4200 in first charge on the new battery almost burned the hole car down. They say to fix the problem is to ca the screw and remove the nut.The only problem is the hole was to big so the screws wouldn't stay there. It sucks to pay alot of money for a car then have to spend almost the same amount to fix the car to run again.

Strange, we have about 20 Gen X cars running here locally without a problem.

The wobble you guys are experiencing is probably the rim not the hubs...I've rarely found rims that spin absolutely true or pre-trued tires that didn't at least need a little bit of re-truing.
