Well I have a CRC GenX that I need a few parts for. I've tried emailing Calandra both frank and john and have never gotten a response. I have also left messages on their machine. I guess that's the bad.

You can always order parts from the CRC website. They turn around orders quickly.

What are yo using for the center shock/spring, and what front springs?

I have a 3.2ck I'm running heavy lube in the dampner tubes, gen-x front end with .024 springs, white side springs, and 60wt oil with an olive spring for the center shock. For motovation I'm running a 4-cell GTB(with lipo cutoff) and either 13.5 or 4300. Double pinks at the corners. The car is good now if I only had any driving skills.

As someone said, you can always order parts from the CRC website...

CRC has a passion for 12th scale and are always on the cutting edge when it comes to 12th scale design...

If you have any questions, Please send me or any team driver a PM and we will be glad to help!

Just an update. I have been in contact with Frank. He has been more than helpful to me. I look forward to racing my CRC car this year. I guess that's the good. Thanks Frank!!!

For those of you who have stepped up from the 3.2R to a GenX, how different is your setup from one car to the other...are they similar, or a completly different combination to make the GenX handle.

The biggest difference as far as setup is that you have to run thicker lube in the side tubes. The new ones have more clearance inside, so you have to go thicker for the same feel. I would start everything else the same as your 3.2R setup.

For those of you new to a 12th scale, I have found this setup guide on an earlier post. Hope this helps.

Hey guys...I am new to 12th but I purchased a 3.2R used and I talked w/a few guys that I have seen running them at our local track and they told me that I should get rid of it and go w/the Genx due to the 3.2 being to wide is this true? Should I get the Genx? Whats the difference if you guys dont mind?

You'll be perfectly happy with the 3.2...

The front suspension is different, people have taken the new front end off the Gen-X and put the old one back on... The pod is different, not better or worse... Actually I find it a pain to change motors on my Gen-X over my 3.2...

The chassis IS narrower... If you have larger electronics they hang off the side...
