Cool, appreciate it. Looks like you directly solder the wires to the batteries, or are you using the bananas?

Plugs? Never!! I use a half battery bar as a solder lug on the battery

I have just picked up a used (but still in top condition) 1/12 Gen X. Yah me!

As it has not been delivered yet I was wondering what the pitch of the gears was: 64 or 48?

The tfource is a tbar car with an associated dynamic strut front end. The genX is a side link car with CRC's unique prostrut front end. Both are really good cars that are fully capable of winning on most any surface. It comes down to personal preference and the talent of the driver....tbar vs side links. Tbars are a little easier to setup since they are somewhat simpler and also a little less adjustable. Lots of people like them for that simplicity. And others choose the side link cars because tbar breakage becomes a non-issue and the batterys are so easy to install with the rubber oring retainer system. I suggest you follow your own personal preference or else choose the car that's best supported in your area (either by your local hobby shop or by the local experienced racers there who are generally very happy to help you out with setup information). Either way, you can't go wrong. Both of the CRC cars are top notch offerings and they both have the racing pedigree to prove it.

Mark,

I think we would be interested in your 1/12 scale setup as well! Did you run the long ball and brace up front?

Brian,

Could you spread the knowledge as well?

We would all appreciate it!

Thanks

Thanks Jeremy and all, we appreciate the nice words.

Team CRC had a fantastic weekend in Las Vegas, winning 1:12th mod and qualifying 1-2 and 7. In addition, we were T.Q. in 1:12th stock as well with 5 cars in the A-final. The Gen-X 12 cars were very good and our small running changes to the cars have kept us on top and in the lead with regard to 1:12th technology.

In addition to the great performance of the cars, we have recently re-vamped the tire line with new compounds and better mounting and truing. In modified, the entire front row was CRC Pro-Cut tires, the original High Roller tire now copied by all the manufactures.

Regarding setup…. I wrenched Jilles second place mod car as well as my 3rd qualifying stock car;

Frank’s 2008 Vegas setup

Front –
** CRC Black fronts – 1.65” – 42 shore, glued outer sidewalls
** .50 mm front springs with very little pre-load
** -.5 degree camber
** Long ball upper arm with 5 degree dynamic caster blocks.
** 2 caster washers to the rear
** 3.5 mm ride height clearance

Mid –
** New Prototype CRC “Encore” shock – (new bladder micro shock coming from CRC)
** Red center spring
** .5 mm down travel (pod drooping when held in the air)
** Level chassis and pod at race weight (bottom plate and chassis in straight line when at race weight on smooth surface)
** Batteries Back
** 4 mm ride height
** CRC/Black Art Audi R8C body

Rear –
** New CRC exclusive short diff hub with the 3349 Brushless Pod conversion for perfect center motor placement.
(Remember racers… simple fact, if you don’t have a short hub, your pod is NOT balanced with a brushless motor. Standard length hubs make it impossible to center the weight on a brushless motor, it doesn’t matter which brand of wheel you use.
** 20000 weight in tubes
** White side springs with no preload.
** CRC’s new “Grey-low”” tires. These are mostly yellow compound with a ring of grey on the outside… hence “Grey-low” 1.70”
** 4.25 mm ride height

Qual 3rd, Finish 4th.

*********************************************

Jilles Groskamp Gen-X 12 2008 Vegas setup

Front –
** CRC Magenta fronts – 1.65” – 42 shore, glued outer sidewalls
** ..45mm front springs with very little pre-load
** -1 degree camber
** Long ball upper arm with 5 degree dynamic caster blocks.
** Full caster
** 2 shims on each front axle.
** 3.5 mm ride height clearance

Mid –
** New Prototype CRC “Encore” shock – (new bladder micro shock coming from CRC)
** Copper center spring
** .5 mm down travel (pod drooping when held in the air)
** Level chassis and pod at race weight (bottom plate and chassis in straight line when at race weight on smooth surface)
** Batteries forward
** 4 mm ride height

Rear –
** New CRC exclusive short diff hub with the 3349 Brushless Pod conversion for perfect center motor placement.
** 20000 weight in tubes
** Red side springs with no preload.
** CRC’s new “Yellow” tires. 1.70”
** 4.25 mm ride height

Qual 2nd, Finish 4th.

We will get Hupo's and Marks setup here asap!

Thanks again guys.... the cars, tires and drivers were looking good in Vegas. Trophy girls too! :-)

Here is the setup that Hupo had on his car for the main:

Front -

** CRC Magenta front - 1.65" 35 shore glued inner and outer sidewall
** .50mm front springs with very little preload
** -.5 degree camber
** Long ball upper arm with 5 degree dynamic caster blocks
** 2 caster shims to the back, 1 to the front
** 3.75mm front ride height

Mid-

** Red center spring
** .5mm down travel in pod
** Batteries forward
** 3.5mm ride height

Rear-

** 30000 weight in tubes
** Red side springs with very little preload
** CRC Yellow rear tires 1.70"
** 3.5mm rear ride height

TQ and 1st in the A-main.

As you can tell, this setup is a little more "mellow" than the setup on Jilles' car. The motor in Hupo's car was almost a year old, so he was just a little down on horsepower compared to the newest generation of brushless motors that are available. So Hupo and I decided to give him a car he could drive hard, right from lap one. Looking back, I think 20000 in the tubes would have made him a little quicker through the corners, but he was happy, so I left it alone.

Any questions, feel free to ask.
