Wondering if anyone would have some set up tips for the gen x. I just ordered one, i am new to 1/12 after watching them race yesterday I had to have one. Also any electonics you think would work well in the stock class would be a great help. Thanks

The stock set-up for the gen x is great. For stock racing you can't go wrong with the CO27 motor from Trinity. I used to run a Novak GTX before I got a 4 cell GTB and it is a small and very smooth ESC that was great in my gen x.

If you start reading back a few pages on this thread, you will find all the info you could possibly want....Google "mark payne blog" for great building tips...

the CRC site has many great setups....so if you are running stock for example, try the Firshing setup...

Been real busy the last few days, but I've tried your setup.
Sorry to say, but it didnt work for me, I had lots of steering power going into the corner, but lost it half way through. With the batteries on the forward position this wasbetter but still not ok.

I did manage to make the car work pretty well though and the big change was: tires.... I went to Jaco double pink rears and purple fronts...
I'm gonna write up my setup as I remember it:

Front:
Springs: 0.45
Caster: 5 degree block, 2 shims front
Ride height: 3.5mm
Toe In/Out: 0
Corally Red Syrup on the kingpin

Mid:
Spring: Silver
Oil: 30Wt
Batteries forward
Rear pod aligned flat

Rear:
Side springs: Red, 1 turn preload
Damper Tubes: CRC White cap
Ride height: 4mm
Pod droop: 2mm

Car was easy to drive, very precise cornering and not much difference between the start and end of the 8 minutes.
Mid to low grip carpet, technical track, 10.5t Orion.

Oh wow, I thought you were running stock.... lol. Yea I would imagine my setup will need some work with a 10.5 in the car. Your front spring and caster block setup is interesting, I may try that myself. I'm racing tonight so hopefully I'll have time to try some of the stuff I've been wanting to.

Any sugestions to mount a KO PDS947 servo on the GenX without using the ugly black plastic mounts, the KO is to wide for the mounting holes.
Thanks, Fred

but Iv'e had it forever, it's still faster and just won't break, no matter how hard I try.

Got a JR DS3400G, just doesn't feel as good. Just have to drill the double hole like my Xray.

But thanks for the moral support Walley

Axe the mounts, don't even use the mounting blocks. Just "Shoo Goo" the entire servo to the chassis. Obviously when you do this you'll have to switch the servo save so the links are on top, and you'll have to switch the right/left on your radio. But that's how the fast guys do it. Just remember when you do this, it will be a "pain in the arse" to get it off the chassis. But hopefully you won't have to. Hope this helps

Mounting the servo like that will make it harder to drive. It's a good idea if you have no options, but not as easy to drive. The acerman is totally changed and bump stear my be introduced. I ran my t-bar car like that to get it to turn, I tried it on my gen-x and couldn't drive it.
just my .02

Thanks, Fred

You can flip the servo so that the case extends to the opposite side of the chassis and there are holes pre-drilled for the KO servo.

See page 15 here:

Has anyone tried the longer pillow balls, and how does it effect the car?

Also when you put lube on the kingpins how much do you put on them?
