Bump...

I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but does anyone have the part numbers for the Xray (I believe its an Xray part) ball cup you can out on the CRC shock that lets you use a hex wrench? If that made any sense.

Also, and word on the new "Encore" shock?

Has anyone tried the Brushless Offset Rear Pod Conversion #3349?

Can I just get the off set rear hubs and reuse the existing parts?

Any feedback?

Cheers.

bboy,
You need the whole conversion. My car felt tweaked with brushless until I installed the new pod. Without the conversion there is too much weight on the left rear tire, which can cause inconsistent handling.

Can you give more detail why you need the whole conversion. In the description of the convertion kit it says (individual graphite pieces are straight off the Gen-X 10 - P/N's 1765, 1766, & 1774). It reads like you would just need the hub.

The BL motor pod for the 1/12 gen-x shifts the motor .15" or so to the diff side of the pod. The upper, lower, and x-brace graphite pieces are .15" wider than the original gen-x (These pieces are used on the gen-x10). Also, the diff hub needs to be .15" narrower to take up the difference.

I think the conversion assumes you are already running the open-x pod so you would already have the correct lh pod plate and aluminum standoff. If not you would need to order those parts as well.

Hey guys Im thinking of putting the long ball suspension on my Gen-X what affect does it have on the handeling of the car? Also I will be running 17.5 at the Snow birds what type of gearing will I need?

I use the X Ray bottom shock mount. With a 3mm screw glued in from under the top plate. Just have to file a bevel on the front top edge in order to gain full travel. If you don't file the plate you will have occasional strange things happen (like rear ending) that will pop the plastic off the metal ball end.

I put the b/less pod on my Gen X and it became a race car again !! Great change up.......

The long ball front end slows camber gain, which reduces steering. If you have too much steering and can't take enough out of the regular front end give it a try.

I run the Gen X 10 pan at Crystal Park in Compton. Not often but when I have a chance. I run a a 3.5r novak, runs very well among nitros. Crystal Park is an all nitro track but on practice days you can run with the nitro guys. Been busy the last two months and have not been able to run but hopefully in the coming weeks I can get back out there. I would not recommend a 1/12 at this track. There is an all electric track in Orange that does 1/10 electrics and on occasion 1/12 indoor carpet when available. You can find more info here http://www.rctech.net/forum/racing-f...lt-we-got.html

If you have any questions about the two tracks personal message me if you have any questions.

Here is a youtube I took of Bending corners and Crystal Park.

Crystal park different angles of the track so go through fast forward if needed
