Thanks to all that have sent in the response form in the back of the Gen-X manual. We have you in the database and when all is ready to ship and final tweaks are finished, we will ship them out. Thanks again.

Hi, I was interested in getting into 1/12 and the CRC cars appealed to me but I don't weather to get a Gen X or maybe a T force as I will be running on asphalt. Which car is better suited to asphalt?
Thanks, Drew.

Ran my first race with a Gen X yesterday... awesome car. I can't wait to get some more tuning time with it. The car seems very responsive to small changes and holds a "tweak" very well... I am very impressed.

No problem - you guys put out a great product. It even makes drivers like Wally look fast on the track.

On a serious note, I had a couple hard impacts with the car in one of my qualifiers and didn't suffer any broken arms like mentioned in earlier posts. I made sure that the screws that hold the upper arms onto the lower arms were countersunk well (so they did not put any pressure onto the carbon ride-height gauge) so that the everything sat flat on the chassis. I think this helps since there is "less" give between the separate parts in a crash. We'll see after a few more race days with the car if this theory holds-up.

Default Part number for rear axle?

What is the part number for the GenX rear axle? I don't have my manual handy and need to order a new axle, as the original is bent and the drive side wobbles.

Your right. Sometimes the wheels might be screwed on wrong. Carbon is very hard to bend.

Default It's bent

The axle is bent. Without a wheel on it, or a pinion on the motor, spinning the axle by hand shows that it is most assuredly bent. I think that it is the aluminum where it is pinned to the carbon axle is bent.

Ok guys,

I have a problem here.... My gen x is very loose on one side...like the car was tweak...The car as the same setup of the last race, where i set the TQ. In the final the king pin unscrewed and i finish 2nd. Only thing i do is: i change the kingpin in precaution and carefully put both kingpin the same lenght.

Here is what i do to try to solve the problem with no success:

-Check the car on the tweak board
-Check the front end, everything is free and seems to work well
-Put 2 brand new front springs
-Preload on front and side springs is good
-rebuilt side damper
-loose and tight the football pivot
-Try 3 different set of tire

Next step is to completly rebuit the car from the start, but maybe i miss to try something.


Thanks for your help guys.

Are the edges of your rear tires coming unglued? Even just a little bit of that and it will make that happen.
