Duh, somehow I managed to miss that. Thanks.

Now the question is, what all will the conversion come with? Just a chassis, links and battery holders or shock and pod too? I ask because my GenX is the original pod. I was planning on getting the brushless pod soon but if this conversion comes with everything, I will go that route.

"CRC has a conversion kit for current Gen-X owners to bring the original car all the cool features found on the XL for less. The conversion kit includes the Gen-XL chassis, XL links, antenna/shock mount, servo mount and the battery position pieces. This brings the long clamping links and lipo battery positioning to the original Gen-X. With the Encore shock and micro left pod, you can upgrade your current car to the latest specs affordably and quite easily. The conversion is part #3205."

Hm, so I would still need the brushless pod. Sounds like I would be better of just getting a new kit.

Will my current bodies fit the new design? Or are the body posts in the exact same place?

it depends on how exact you are with the body post holes. the body posts are 2mm farther apart from front to back. my bodies still fit, but i drill my body post holes with a bazooka.

worst case scenario is you have to SLIGHTLY elongate the rear holes.

So I would just have to make one of the sets of holes bigger to make them still work?

The name made me think electric 1/8th scale pan car. But this is pretty cool.
