How good is the Pro Strut front end on these cars. Thinking of picking one up.

Hmmm, good quesiton. Compared to what? This is the only rc I own so your asking someone that has been in it for a year. If you follow some of John's links, tips and tricks it is a smooth strut but again I do not have anyting else to compare it so all I can say it is good.

If you have calipers you can just measure the diameter of the wire withing the coil. If they are the kit springs I believe they are .50's

Hey Guys i need some advice. I was wanting to buy a open conversion kit for my Gen x. (Pn. CRC-3339). I was wondering is this needed if i buy the offset pod for brushless motors. (Pn.-CRC 3349)

Should i buy one or the other, or get both.

Thanks

If you are going to run a Brushless set up:
You will need the CRC 3349 Brushless Offset Pod for Gen-X.
Depending on what version of your car you have it could have the CRC 3339 Open-X Rear Pod conv - Gen-X on the car already, At the very least you will need CRC 3337 Red Hex Standoff Open-X Pod which comes in the CRC 3339 or can be purchased seperately.
The (CRC 3338 Left side Bulkhead for Open-X) is the same as the (CRC 3342 Left Bulkhead - Gen-X) but the leading support for the upper plate is machined off. If you want to save some bucks and don't care if it looks perfect you can dremel the alloy brace off and get a CRC 3337 Red Hex Standoff Open-X Pod.

Confussed enough? My job is done here

I would buy a spare CRC 1765 Rear Top Plate - Gen-X 10 as they can break. It is NOT the same as the one included in the CRC 3339 Open-X Rear Pod conv - Gen-X

Thanks for the info I was about to ask a question about the Open-X Pod. Is the Open-X Pod the latest offering in the current Gen X kit? Has it been around longer than the brushless motor pod 3342? Which one is newer? What do most people currently run? Thanks.

Is the Open-X pod newer than the brushless motor pod that ships with the CRC Gen X? Do both of them center the brushless motor for even weight distribution? Thanks again.

Thanks Steve.

Did you have the timing cranked on the motor as well?

what silicone did you have in the dampening tubes.

Servo angled or flat?

The brushless pod is newer than the open X pod. The open X was an upgrade from the original with a new damper/shock mount , threaded post between the pivot ball and damper/shock mount and bolted right up to the original lower plate and X brace across the back of pod . The new brushless pod looks very similar to the open X but it has a new lower plate, x brace, damper/shock mount and a new diff side hub for the axle. Reviewing a few of the posts and looking at Stormer's site, I guess you do need to have the machined down left side bulkhead originally offered with the openX to complete the conversion if starting from the original brushed pod. The kits have been upgraded to reflect the best available tech and do come with the brushless pod. A club member had just gotten one from Stormer a few weeks ago and it did come with the brushless pod.

Motor timing was in the middle hole.
Losi 30,000 in tubes
Server angled

I felt overgeared now that I have been using the RS for a while. If i was to do it again I would have geared at about 2.70 Roll Out.

Frank/John

Will there be a 1/12 scale kit in the near future that will include all of the recent upgrades including the longer side links and revised chassis?

Also, will there be a lipo chassis coming?

Thanks,

Jeremy
