Makes car smoother, less camber gain. I run 3000-5000 wt on my kigpins. Just a few drops. If the stearing block feels stuck to the pivot ball, too much.

Hex wrench sizes: .050, 1/16, 3/32 and 2mm for camber

nut drivers: 3/16, 11/32

I might have missed something, but I think that takes care of most of it...

Default Updated Setup

Just posting an updated setup for Brushless 17.5 (Stock). I picked up almost 3 tenths a lap over the previous week and the car is definitely closer to what I've been wanting in driving and handling. And yes, this setup TQ'd and won.

Front:
CRC Magenta Fronts with 3/4 width soak
Springs: .45mm
CRC White cap (Heavy) lube on kingpins
Caster: 10 block, 3 shims back, 0 forward (full caster in)
Ride height: 3.5mm
Toe In/Out: 0

Mid:
Spring: Gold (Associated)
Oil: 30Wt
Battery in Rear position
Rear pod level with chassis in race trim

Rear:
CRC Pink Rears with full width soak
Side springs: Red, 2 turns preload
Damper Tubes: CRC White cap (heavy)
Ride height: 4mm
Pod droop: 2mm

3.11 rollout (43/78 with 1.80" tires)
Parma Speed 8 Body
Dual rate was set so that the car did circles half the width of a 6 foot lane. I did not use full lock in the turns, and most turns are 180's.

Traction was about low/medium, more on the medium side I would say. A good groove was visible but nothing like a major event or anything. It was just a regular weekly race.

since you have to mount the front brace on the top of the lower arm, doesnt it change your roll center?

yes
but it helps with edging in mid corner.
and the new long ball will help more on high bit tracks.

Default red bumpers

Hey guys. Red bumpers just showed up at the Slapmaster Shop. Now you can dress your CRC & Corally's in style..... and then bash them senseless The red bumpers are #105R, the traditional black ones are just #105. The bumper was recut some to reduce sanding/cutting around the front suspension. The are cut and sanded so that a Speed 8 & 12 fit nicely.

so pretty much if you get the brace you have to get the longer ball studs?

thats right
if your at a race and you feel your car needs it you can change the front end.
its fast and easy
from no brace to brace to brace with long upper ball,i think its great.

Generation X notes...

The current batch of Gen-X cars has the new left side bulkhead in the kit. In stock trim, we think that pod setup is the best rear pod available for brushless. In addition to the left bulkhead, the current batch of kits includes the molded ride height spacers for the Pro Strut front end.

News from the CRC camp...

Good news... We will release the new Open-X pod to fit the Gen-X at the US Indoor Champs in Cleveland. The conversion is a snap, a couple screws and you are ready to roll.

The new Open-X pod raises the bar one more notch when it comes to strength, lightweight and ease of use. The design results in the rear pod being more rigid and wide open on the left side, well beyond any other pod on the market.

There will be a limited supply, so see the store at the Champs early.
