Thought I'd start it since it seems to have been left out for the X10.

I'd like to see a different servo mounting system. Not sure if the servo's in Europe are the same as over here in North America, but I have yet to find one that matches up with the pre-drilled holes. Something more flexible like the CRC's servo mount would be nice to see in future models.

Next is the rear axle height adjust. It seems that with 58mm tires the lowest the rear can go is about 5-6mm. Would be nice to be able to get the rear down to 3mm with 58mm tires. Not sure if the Link is different in this area or not. Good thing is I haven't had to change the spacer as the tires wear :wink:

Anybody have other stuff? Post it here.

Mods...can we get this to be a sticky?

With the original servo mounts i had the problem that the holes in the mounts didn´t fit optimal to a normal or low profil servo.
But now i took the servo mounts from a T2 009 and now i can mount any servo!!!

Do you mean the holes on the mounts didn't line up with mounting tabs on the servo? If yes, it's probably because the mounts included with the kit are for the smaller servos (12th scale ones). It says in the manual that the mounts for regular size servo's is an option part, probablly the same as the ones you used.

My problem is the holes in the chassis do not match up with the servo mounting tabs. It seems the servo needs to be wider or the mounts are on an angle. Had this problem with my T2 to.

When will Xray have Optional Harder Centre Shock Springs available? I was disappointed that my selection of 12th Scale Shock Springs do not fit because the inner diameter is too small. We have been running much stiffer centre springs on the GenX10 Cars with 2 Cell Lipo.

Also I would like to see a wider body mount that allow for shorter rear body posts resulting in less body movement.


More items to look at for this great car :D

Perhaps this is where I should post this request

We just need a Wider Rear Brace (Part #371071) with a selection of holes for the Body Mounts. CRC offers these for the GenX10 as well as for their BattleAxe Oval Car. It makes a significant difference with shorter body posts.

XRAY X10 suggested Hop Ups:

Optional Rear Brace (stock piece part number is 371071) - Wide Body Mount

Optional Centre Shock Springs - Stiffer

CRC Optional Brace

Sorry - I don't have a Protoform Sophia Body to show. I will be building a second X10 for the WGT Class - 13.5 Brushless Single Cell in North America. I will be getting the Protoform Body for that Car and I'll post pictures, but that will be a few weeks from now. The location will be very close to the picture from the above CRC Link which shows the Sophia on their chassis.

The Springs are the stiffest CRC Rear Springs. They are the type we run on High Grip Carpet with the 2 Cell LIPO 17.5 and 25.5 CRC GenX10 Cars. I'll post my setup after some testing which will start in about 8 days.

Meanwhile, I'll keep asking - will Xray offer a selection of optional stiffer Center Shock Springs? The stock spring seems very soft. :?:

I have the black one with my t-bar car. I didn't think it was stiffer but I'll have to check.

I have two springs. One is silver and the second is black which is stiffer than the silver one.

That black spring is the one that came with the T-bar. I'll have to give it a try on the link.

I still don´t know what the bigger body Mount is good for?
And i changed the original shock to a old TRF shock , for this i have many springs!I drive a very hard Spring (even outside!) and it works perfect!!!

Not bigger, wider. If your not using a wedge style body the wider mounts allow you to have the body posts lower as they will not be going through the rear window but right beside the 'dome' as per pics shown (either above or in another thread in this section). It really shouldn't be a big deal to make, just a longer carbon fiber piece.

I just switched to the CRC 12th scale shock. Works great and lots of spring options, plus it's in stock on the wall of the local track.
