I use a PFM-10. Fits like it was made for the car......

I have not tried the Cadillac yet, I have one coming. I will try to get it mounted and report back.

Hi John,

I agreed with you that the new Protoform Cadillac ATS-VR 200mm body is not perfect. But, the foam bumper modification (some minor shaping) and body posts relocation (a little back) do not hit me as being "serious" issues.

The really good thing about this new Caddy body is that it does have the width (almost 8") at the wheel wells to accommodate the rear width of the new R/T car I am building (being about 7-3/4" wide with the CRC pre-mount spec tires on a standard built rear axle assembly).

So, I am still considering this body for my IIC car which will be required to use CRC pre-mounts having the CRC logo towards the outside (making the car slightly wider than when the tires are reversed on the wheels as some racers may have glued up previously).

Otherwise, the HPI Porsche GT1 200mm body with about 7-7/8" width at the rear wheel wells seemed to be an excellent body for WGT R/T. But, that body does not appear to be available at this time. Dang!

Please keep posting with your observations...made me check the Caddy body fitment more thoroughly...which was a good exercise!

Thanks.

Bill

My Cadillac showed up today and I have done a quick cut out to eyeball up the mounting. It looks like you will have to shape the foam bumper in order to get the body to sit back further and the front body post location will have to change to one of the other screw locations. I don't think it will be too bad to get the body very close to centered in the wheel wells. Getting it perfect will take more time and more work.

But, man is this body good looking.

Hi

i just bought and build my GenX 10 R/T

And i need a little bit of your help.

Can someone tell me or post some picture of this car with 2S setup ?

I think red aluminium parts under top carbon plate are too short and my 2S lipo can't go under

You can find 25mm aluminum standoff on ebay...

Thanks a lot.

on their website they said:
*** Multiple battery positions and configurations; 1s inline, transverse, forward, middle and back. 2s shorty, saddle, square and full 2s stick. The Gen-X 10 R/T has provisions to accept all these different configurations

that's why i was searching if i didn't forget something.

Thanks one more time

Default Ride Height...

Gents,

Dig the new kit, and I've read everything from page one.

What are most finding best for front 5mm+/- ride height? Are you removing the stepped white spacer on the kingpin or combining 4mm and 3mm blocks?

Dumper talked about running the 5mm block with one of the #4262 shims...is that with the stepped white spacer or without?

Some have been running the chassis long enough, I would guess, to determine what's best.

Ride Height is over rated.

I got my Caddy mounted. Now all I have to do is paint it. I also had to reshape the foam bumper and move the front body mounts. I'll try it out this sunday.

Yep. The 5mm block and an orange #4262 shim should get you close. I use the stepped white spacer; but, not everyone does. Depends as much on how far you screw the king pin into the steering block too.

All you need is 1 package of our 1537 standoffs to fit a 2s battery.

In stock configuration (using the white spacer), all you should need is the 5mm block and an orange ride height shim. Leave the kingpins long enough so they almost hit the front rim.

I've run 1/2" screws on the front of the lower suspension mount and plate instead of the stock screws. Once the nut is run down, there is plenty of room to thread the body post on and provide an alternate location for the posts. This puts the posts right at the leading edge of the front tires and should place the mounting holes onto the hood of most shells.
