Thank You...

Radio Post GP will be fun, also some famous guys will show up.

If you guys plan to go to IIC this year, it will be a great warm up race

Hope to see you at the track again.

Ok guys, I need a little help here. I just ordered the Gen-XL my first on-road car. I'm doing a lot of research (I read this whole thread start to finish) but there's a lot to take in at once.

I'm trying to order necessities and must-haves, I've compiled a list maybe you can let me know what I need to add or omit?

Right now I'm talking about the Gen-XL, if anyone wants to PM me accessories that I'll need (Tweak stations, tires, truers, etc) that would be cool too.

Anyway here's what I got so far:

I'm going with the Orion packs and motors.

JRPSZ3650 - JR Z3650 Digital High Speed Metal Gear Mini Race Servo
CLN1280 - CRC Rear Side Spring Set
CLN3299 - CRC VCS/Encore Spring Set (6)
CLN3277 - CRC Pro-Strut Graphite Brace w/Hardware

CLN3260 - CRC Large 1/12 Bumper
CLN3259 - CRC Small 1/12 Bumper (Which one? Large or Small?)

CLN1764 - CRC 4mm Carbon Fiber Top Plate
CLN3351 - CRC Aluminum Left Side Bulkhead

CLN4168 - CRC 1/12 BA004 "Bomb'R" Clear Body
CLN4166 - CRC R10 Pacemaker Light Weight 1/12th Body
CLN4167 - CRC Audi R8C Light Weight 1/12th Body
Which body is the hot ticket?

Anything spares you guys could recommend? Anything I need/don't need? Thanks in advance...

Hi mate.
Ok I have just started running the Gen XL and done loads of reading on it so I will let you know what has helped me so far. As you are getting the xl kit you won't need the pro strut front end,servo mount,rear top plate as this is part of the kit. I also got the long front arms and graphite bottom brace ( needed to use long arms), red shirt top brace, bronze balls x 3. Didnt bother with a bumper as I don't think they have ever done anything on any of my 12th. Didn't get the rear axel alu part as it makes no difference to handling.
I run the protoform AMR shell and am told it is a good bet, also the bomber was got but a bit aggressive till the grip come up. And that's it really. The time was great from the off. Just check your screws regularly as I lost 3 on my first meeting.
Tyres ? Speak to others at your track but Db pink front and pink rear was spot on for me on carpet.

Good luck mate

Hey thanks for the tips! I took off the stuff I had on there that already came with the kit. I got the long front arms and graphite bottom brace. What is the red shirt top brace and bronze balls? Do you have a part number?
