there are a number of things that you can try to stop the double steering. It's always much easier to narrow it down and recommend something if i was actually there to see your car and run on your track, but i'll give you a couple different options to try.

if the glue on your tires gets to close to the edge of the tire, it can cause inconsistent handling. You can either try to cut the glue down a little, or because your tires are already pretty small, you can try adding another .5 degree of camberon each side.

sometimes, if a track has alot of bite, a magenta front will give (or "fold under") in the corner and a harder purple front will actually give you a more consistent steering feel. Again though, because your tires are already pretty small, i wouldn't think that they'd be giving that much in the corner, so going to a grey front might help.

also, dampening the king pins will keep the front end from rolling and snapping back so quickly. it will smooth out how the front end transitions and should put less stress on the front tires on initial turn-in. Just use a small amount of medium or heavy tube lube on the king pins where they go through the lower arm ball and remember that this will need to be cleaned and re-lubed every few runs.

Good stuff John.

When will a setup sheet be available for the Gen-X 10?

Thanks.

Just wanted to let someone know about tire packaging.

I ordered 8 sets of grey lo's and two boxes had yellows in them and two boxes had one grey lo and one yellow.

Just wanted to bring this up, so you can watch out for the packaging process.

I really liked the grey/lows at the Halloween Classic. Tires stayed glued all weekend. I also used the grey front tires.

Thanks
Steve Walter

I was in the same boat...None of my 1/10 servos (even low profile) fit into my Gen X-10. Got the JR 3650 micro servo which easily fits AND CENTERS IN THE X-10 CHASSIS (something that the other micros don't seem to do very well).

I use a Kimbrough mid-sized servo saver and connect the steering linkage to the inner holes on it. I definitely wanted the stiffer spring of the mid-sized unit. (Edit: This was with the steering servo mounted in the old standard position. BD)

Let's put it this way...I can afford any servo I want...But, I haven't found a diamond studded one yet...LOL.

Would also consider the KO 951 servo; but, I am not sure how well it centers in the X 10 chassis.
