Kit included red (front) and white (rear) springs. I run red/red per a previous suggestion from John at CRC. Works for me.

.50's come in the 12th kit with white sides. we normally run .45's in the front and keep the white sides.

red fronts come with the Gen-X 10, which are the same springs used on the rear of both cars.

Frank thanks for getting me the new tplate car. I just wish I could of had some more track time. got 1 run in and then had screws back out of the pod plate lost a pinion and had a IRS ride height adjuster break in the other 3 heats. should of won the 13.5 "E" but ramped it off a spun backmarker... BOB your killing me and got second after a fun battle with Michael Robertson Think I'll run it in 10.5 at snowbirds. the car was super stable in the main for 13.5 can't wait to run it some more.

Just look at the setups posted on the CRC site. They are all very close, if not identical, to everyone's Cleveland setup. They almost never change for high bite carpet...

cool, thanks max and jrp. I noticed tom's car had the standard front end ie without the long ball kit on, were you running the long ball front end? my car should be on the way soon im trying to get a good baseline setup to work off of and whether or not to build it initially with the long ball setup or not for club racing

What is the need to run rear axle spacers between the outer bearing and red spacer on the Gen-X 10 rear axle?

Does the tightener nut go down too far without these spacers?

Thanks.
