James,

Nice and clean looking. Your right, it doesn't look balanced.

What kind of roll out should I start with on a small/med size track using a 19t? I plan on using the Checkpoint money.

I'm also using Dubro ball links at the servo, and will soon be adding them to the steering blocks as well. You'll want the 256/4-40 version at the servo, and the 4-40/4-40 version at the steering blocks. They greatly reduce the slop compared to the usual ball cups. Order extras because some of them come out the package better than others. I pick the best ones and have no extra slop at all with this method. Althougn, even the average dubro links with some slop is much less than your typical ball and cup. With the servo laid down flat, I don't even need the cones. If you do use cones on the 4-40 links, pick up these aluminum ones to save weight. I used the 4-40/4-40 dubro link on the center shock as well. Makes removal of the shock easy. I will be replacing the other one as well. (I have more on order).

Less weight, lower center of gravity. I've always run the servo flat, and never tried it angled (other than for my oval cars). And from my research about people's opinion on running it flat, it seems to suit my driving style and track conditions.

Exclamation RE....GENX

After reading all 17 pages I have decided to order my GENX, to replace my 3.2R. Thanks for the post Kraig.(KT Hobbies) I think I got your last one. As to the QC problems I have read, they seem fairly minor, although I do not find the excuse of a time factor acceptable for poor QC. But I'm an old fart and I believe if your going to do it, do it right.

I also saw a couple of posts with a modified GTB speed control.(fan and heat sink removed) Removing the fan is a no brainer, Now the heat sink is another story!!!!! I have my new GTB sitting on my bench, Where can I have it modified, or is that something I can do myself????? All help is appreciated, Thanks.

TJ

Modifying the GTB yourself is very difficult as the cloth transfere tape between the aluminum plate and the fets rips very easily. It would be best to send it back to Novak and request it made into a 4 cell version or exchange for a 4 cell version.

The obvious, you would need to make an aluminum plate. The 4 cell GTB will be available the first of the new year.

Doing the steering linkages as shown I use the 2-56 ball link (4-40 rod) DuBro ends at both ends. The Lunsford turnbuckle that works easiest is the 1-3/8" set as they are threaded closer to the center "nut". You can cut down the standard 1-3/4" set but you end up cutting the ball links shorter because you don't have as much thread to work with.

The most challenging part (though certainly not brain surgery) was making little bushes out of 1/8" brass tubing for the screws into the steering blocks.

I think most are using the CRC Medium lube, CRC Heavy lube, AE 10K and\or AE 30K and then some are running no lube. I guess it all depends on what your car is doing and making feel right for you.
