Kraig--was sure sorry to see you're calling it a day. Hopefully it's a change that will ultimately result in good things for you and yours.

The red cap is "light" (what all the 3.1-3.2 kits came with). The white cap is "heavy" and the blue cap is "extra heavy". iir, that came about because there was only "light" and "heavy", then they decided to introduce a heavier lube yet but didn't want to confuse anyone who was already using the red or white cap versions. What would have made sense (ultimately) was to rename the white cap "medium" and call the blue "heavy", but I believe the decision was made with consistency in mine.

Not sure what exact setup to use at the Magma race. I haven't run the Gen-X at Fastcats yet. I would start with the copper shock spring, red or green side springs, .50 front springs, 30 wt oil in the shock and set the caster to 2 shims back. Fastcats is a fast, flowing track. There are a couple bumps that the T-bar cars will notice. But the Gen-X will drive smooth on this track.

The side springs are red with a pink rear and magenta front tire.


There is more clearance on the damper tubes of the Gen-X compared to those of the 3.x series cars. Therefore a heavier lube can be used to acheive the same dampening. This helps with consistancy.

What are you guys using as spacers for a transponder up front? My used GenX didn't come with anything.

Default Finished building my Gen-X

Well, I finished building my Gen-X today. Here it is. Click the picture for a higher resolution image.

It doesn't look balanced 50% / 50%, but it is. Can't wait to try it!

Hyperdrive HP-1127. Picked it up at RC4Less, but I can't find any more.
The 2 front screws are designed for 8-32 screws, so I drilled another through the bumper and used a triangle effect to keep it tight. I dremmeled out some for the transponder too. I did all the modifications to the bumper.

Why lay the servo down instead of on mounts?
