I've got a genx10-se and am looking to possibly upgrade. Not sure if I want the RT or go to another brand. Thinking about an xray but I've heard it's tough to get proper ride height.

Any thoughts on a good chassis?

Learn by using your Se chassis. Just add 2mm spacers front and rear. Or get the RT kit and just build it. The choice is yours.Stick with the CRC kits.

I got the car in a trade, already shimmed for rubber tires. I just don't think it's steering as much as other people's cars. Very lazy on corner entry.

Set up now with .45 springs front and side, red center, stock oil, 10k in the tubes, 2 camber, 2mm pod droop.

Check the front end and see if it is long or short. The SE is a bit longer than the other cars so running it in the short wheelbase (rear holes) helps a lot with that car.

Try less droop (1mm) and about 1 deg toe out.

Cool, I'll check the wheelbase and droop next time I'm at the track. I am definitely running toe out but no idea how much, don't own a pan car setup station yet.

I'm running a GenX 10 SE in World GT-R and get on with it just fine. Good turn in and handling using the original set up advice from Bryan Wynn. Quick enough for the A-main at the Snowbirds and 4th in the A-main at the IIC in Vegas

I was able to shorten the wheelbase by about 2mm, made only a slight improvement. I also went to a stiffer side spring (associated gold) which helped.

One huge thing I found was that there was about 2mm preload on the front springs. Whoever had the car before me had screwed the kingpins in way too far.

I'd like to try adding some front droop but if I unscrew the kingpins anymore they rub on the wheels. Perhaps this is due to the car having the adjustable trailing axle setup?

Send a pic of the front spring setup if you can. I run the CRC .45 x 8mm springs with no shims or spacers and a trailing steering setup. That produces almost 2mm of droop with the kingpins (long) all the way in and no interference with the wheel.
The CRC WGT-R kit comes with a fairly thick spacer that is shown in the front end assembly. I recommend that you not have that in there.

Are you referring to the white, stepped washer between the spring and e-clip?

With the new springs you can run a .5 mm washer on top of the e clip and remove the step washer.

That spacer is primarily for the tapered springs. Use the straight 8mm length springs and a thin washer/spacer or none at all to get maximum droop. I typically run 0.5mm to 1mm of droop. This will likely be a big help considering how you described your current arrangement.
