so the pin brace replaces the two shims and you move it and the one shim front to back for caster changes?

So I tend to get really bored with graphite from broken rear pods, and just general CRC parts. Here's a little front end brace I made up with a couple peices, 2 screws and o rings. It's not the best design because the 4 screws going into the dynamic caster blocks are about 1mm to big in diameter, allowing some movement with high force. But hey, Its something I like to do so who cares. Enjoy

Default Battery Replacement

Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket part to replace the center shock tower on the Gen XL that has a different release for the shock? Popping the shock off everytime to change the battery is wearing out the ball cups and is a hassle. If not is the a better tool than pliers to pop it off without damaging it?

From the 1/12 Forum that you asked this question too...

I'm using a hex ball cup and ball from an Xray FK'04. Uses a 3mm wrench to remove. Simple.

Mark506, That is a pretty cool front brace. Not sure if I would need it on our small track. As for the rear upper brace breaking. Buy the 3mm upper brace and your problems are over.
I had a problem with the upper brace breaking and the lower pod breaking on the side of the short plastic bearing mount. So I got the 3mm upper brace and the long left side Al. bearing brace. Problem solved

Looks like Hupo's car at the worlds has a chassis with no cell cut outs and a more rigid rear pod X brace.

Good luck to Frank and the whole CRC Team.

the xbrace is not stock. I think it was slapmaster guy that made it although don't quote me. I got one for my car at snowbirds since one of the drivers decided to trade teams... I have pictures of it from snowbirds on my site www.rc50.com. not sure about the new chassis. knowing frank that is a possiblilty. he likes to try stuff.

From what I have read on the 12th scale worlds. The CRC is not doing so well. Such a good car I am sure they will place.
