Gen X 10, LiPo ready and that is about it.

Other than that, they are both very great cars.

I like the pro strut fron end on the CRC, but the 2S lipo fitting sold it for me. I knew mine was destined for a 21.5.

From those 2... BMI DB10R It can also fit the tall 2S lipo, people say that it affects handling badly though, I think it's the same case with CRC - yes you can fit the lipo in the middle but do you really want to..?

Not at all mate. My handling is just fine. I just added more weights, used the Hudy chassis balancer buttons, adjusted the weights accordingly, and am doing just fine.

I am using a 17.5 LiPo combo. As the McDonalds commercial says "I'm lovin it."

No handling issues here and I run a Yeah! 5000 25C. Its about the biggest package battery out there. Fits like a glove. Once the car is dialed and the right amount of traction compound applied to the front tires, I get just the right amount of front grip. The key with the tires is to get them the right starting height. Mine are 2.2" in the rear and 2.1" in the front.

I run a protoform Vette and will until its completely destroyed. I'm just getting my pan car legs under me, but loving this car and class. I prefer the 21.5 to the 13.5 4 cell as I am not going to invest any more money in NiMh batteries.

Harry! lol, you changed my motor! I'd try a 17.5 if the track were bigger. My new F1 has a 17.5 geared at 88/26 and I can't get it much past 3/4 throttle.

FYI, we are already faster than the touring cars with our 'slow' 21.5s. Corner speed is so much faster and grip so much better, we just drive right under them in the corners.

I knew you'd get a kick outta that!

What gearing are you using with that 21.5? My Tekin 17.5 Redline at the track I race at is working gorgeously. And we have a technical track as well. I am able to punch my throttle a few times without issue.

You got a picture of your track? You can see the track I race at in my signature. It is labeled The Track.

The SpeedMerchant Pro-10, duh....

Honestly though, if you are dead set on the Gen-X 10 or 10R5, I would choose the Gen-X 10, made in the USA.

+1 for the CRC GENX10.

Can use Lipo, brushless system, nimh, anything. not to mention made in the USA. Great handful of people to help you out on the CRC threads, priceless.

I love my CRC and 21.5 and it handles well now, very easy to drive. I am looking at the Darkside for next year though. Near zero maintenence shocks instead of dirty dampner tubes and links that can be tightened as they loosen up. Definitely a premium car but has a premium price as you still have to buy a rear axle and body posts. It just screams sexy though.
