Default Xray X10 to WGTR

What is needed to convert the Xray X10 to a WGTR? Other than tires and wheels.

I will assume that ride height needs to be addressed. Spec for the class is 5mm minimum. The tires are tall so you might need shimming to get close to that. I don't know how X-Ray adjusts rear height but on a car that accepts Associated type adjusting inserts, just find a set of #4. The front end will need about 2.5 to 3mm of extra shim. Don't forget to set the servo height for the front end change.

On the 2018:

5mm spacers for rear axle mount and longer screws
3mm spacers under the front arm mounting brace and longer screws then use supplied spacers to fine tune

Car is fast!
