There is a optional shim set. The shims fit between the reactive block and the lower arm.

What are the kit side springs?

BTW...raced last weekend. Absolutely loved the car. Thanks for all your help. Went w 7k in side tubes (will try 5k next), kit springs front and side, purple center spring w 700cst, 1.5 camber...started with a hair of toe and ended up needing to go out to about 1.5. Fighting a ton of on power push...have gone to .45 front spring.

I believe the kit springs are .50 I run 50s up front for more on power steering with little droop. Orange center spring and 27wt oil. I have the black super soft AE side springs wanting to say they are 1.9lbs spring rate I also run all the caster shims to the back with 10degree blocks with both roll center shims installed and 20k in side tubes. Locked rear axle my car is very aggressive hope this helps

At the bigger races, are most people running the most narrow and shortest wheelbase possible on the front end?

Iím hoping someone can help me. I recently bought a brand new Gen-X R/T and am having some issues. I canít figure out how to adjust the camber. Iíve read the manual multiple times and have tried to find an answer on the forums and anywhere else. With no luck. This is my first CRC chassis so Iím not sure of all the ins and outs yet. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Adjust the pillow ball in or out of the upper arm to change camber. The manual doesn't really go into adjustments. I'm sure there are some how to vids on you tube though.
If you are wanting to adjust rear camber, I can't help you with that... LOL!

I will try that. Do you just put some shims in between the pillow ball and the upper arm? Iím definitely referring to the front lol.

The pillow ball head is threaded. Turn it in or out to adjust camber.

when we ran the class here I did both the 5 and 10 degree blocks. Also always ran 45 springs front and side. Stayed with the kit center oil. As for springs started with the kit and went either way- depending on the tracks.Probably went with the short wheel base and narrow. For yoyr frontend adjustments you have to play with that till you find what is comfortable for you.
