I saw something in a magazine. They called it a J type or J concept, something like that. Wheelbase and some doo-dad adjustments. Can't wait to see more of it.

The J-Spec is a prototype asphalt chassis conversion for the Gen-X targeted for the Japanese market as most of the 1:12th racing in Japan is on asphalt. The is NOT a released product nor is it a full car. At this point, it is a prototype chassis with some modifications for racing on pavement.

Regarding the Gen X... Team CRC is currently in Las Vegas at the IIC campaigning the Gen X. After qualifying, we have 3 cars in the stock A main and also 3 cars in the modified A-main.

Now as the Gen-X approaches it's first birthday, the car continues to win races and improve. We have made running changes in the kit to include our new super lighweight hub and new molded lower arm spacers.

By using these new molded lower arm spacers instead of the original red aluminum ride spacer, lower arm failures have practically been eliminated.

While at the IIC race in Las Vegas, we are also testing new front end option parts with great success. The Gen-X is performing very well and continues to lead the pack in the 1:12th market.

Default setup

What do you guys use as a tool for setting up the angles on these cars? I'm coming from 1/10, so i'm familiar with the Hudy type gauges, but have no clue what is used on a 12th scale car.

Thanks in advance.

CRC should come out with an "Update Kit" that includes the latest parts. My son has broken 6 lower arms so far using the kit supplied red front end spacers.

I'm using a unity tools tweak board to setup my GenX. Works very fine, on a 1/12th as well as my tourer or my 1/10th Pan.

Default GTB 4 cell or XBR

I'm making the jump to brushless this season and I found a 4 cell GTB with a 13.5 turn brushless set at my LHS. THey also had the XBR with a 13.5 turn motor. There is a $40 difference in price and the only difference I can see is that the XBR has Lipo cut off where the GTB doesn't.

Not having ever used Novak controllers before, always used Associated, is one better then the other? Is there any experience or knowledge someone can impart to me to help make a decision?

J spec 2007 is special for asphalt surface, for instance Japanese indoor or outdoor track.

This jmrca 12th scale championship runs 4 cars, J-spec Gen-X.
The track yatabe-arena is indoor track but it is bad condition at the surface. The yatabe area is surrounded volcanic ash,
So very dusty out of the line. Further more no12th car run there when it is not held the 12th race.
this year up to high grip on the line only, same as racing carpet surface.

J-spec is quite well.

Team report will be upped after a few days
