Well after running the Gen-X for 4 times, I have decided to go back to a T-Plate car, so the car with parts and a second auction for parts is off on E-Bay.

The kit comes with CRC's procut tires. I think they are purple front and grey rears, but it doesn't say. The mounting hardware for the transponder is not included. Real bummer.

Grenade10, What's the reason for the switch?
The reason why I'm asking this is because I would like to try a link car, but I've always ran with a T-bar car and liked the feel of it. I always thought a T-bar car is a bit more laid back and a link car is more responsive, is this true?
I'm curious why you are going to make the switch.

The car is VERY responsive. Last lap times is better with the Gen-X. However, I can not turn that type of laps for 8 min. I can out qualify the Gen-X with my Quad-12 or T-Fource. I have also loaned my T-fource to another racer who qualified 2nd, so I know the car is quick. The Q-12 is using the "Old School" front end and the T-Fource uses the associated front end. I'm going to try the Gen-X front end on the car. I really like how well it went together and was able to be tuned.

I also use a 12M Euro to race outsdie on the pavement as that car really works there.

My 2 cents.

I haven't been able to find it yet. Maybe one of the team drivers can pop in here and help out.

Anyone have a front arm "crack" while pre-screwing (prior to the aluminum)? The other thing I'm confused about was the diff cone washer? It's larger in diameter of my hole in which is on the rim. With that said, the right rear wheel won't go on correctly. I've been into pan cars for years and I've never had this issue. The inside diameter of the diff cone washer is slightly larger then the axle that it won't go on evenly. Maybe I have something wrong? Dave
