The groove.
Really? I've been measuring from the steering block to the bottom of the king pin. No wonder I can't get any droop with the .404" measurement.

The groove is approximately .0018" wide and from the bottom of the groove to the bottom of the king pin is .0038". So, I've been off on that measurement by about .0056".

I presume you insert an e-clip in the groove to make the measurement. I normally use a shim with the e-clip, so I'll include the shim as well.

Thanks for the reply.

I think it's the "standard" to use the bottom of the groove.

If you're Mr. TQ Racing, just want to say I'm using your booster and 16GA wires for my 1/12th and 2 WGT's. Great products.

Many thanks! The silicone wires and sensor cables are mine, not the booster though.

Default Chassis woes...

I've run into a problem with the lower arm mounting holes after a few weeks of running the car, as they seemed to have "opened up" after taking a few hits to the front end. None of the hits were hard enough to cause a lower arm to break, but the lower arms no longer line up straight, resulting in excess (and uneven) caster on both sides of the car. I bought the front end brace thinking that it would prevent the problem, but it wouldn't allow the lower arms to maintain the proper alignment needed for consistent handling...

I've also noticed that the aluminum caster blocks tend to bend quite easily... Considering they were on the car for 5 minutes of track time, they cost me roughly $3/minute.

Other than the issues with the front end, the car does work very well - but I'd like to know if anyone has run into the same problems and/or developed any possible solutions for these issues.

I just got me a second hand Gen X, as the XL is not available in shops around here. I have been waiting for over a month, but still nothing.

I was wondering whether it would be worth upgrading to the XL? (For some reason the required parts are available unlike the full kit. :P)
To me it looks like the cars are the same except for the new side links and the shock/antenna mount.

So is there much difference performance wise, or am I better of spending my cash on some tires? :P

btw, I love this car already. It's so easy to work on compared to my old t-bar car.

I am going to be installing the graphite brace and the long upper arms and was wondering if I need anything else to install this.
