@punkracer24: THanks! Can you make some suggestions on which rate Yatabe springs I should pick up for Carpet? Green or ?

@zerodefect: why alum cups when stiffer? Lower CG? Seems like that might be more unsprung weight?

Purple or black fronts and green rear. Your also going to need to go lower cst on the oils. 550cst front and 350cst rear is pretty good.

I think stock on the CE is 500CST in the front and 350CST in the rear. 550 CST would be heavier. Is that what you meant?

In hard hits the plastic cups can spread apart and pop off or wiggle crooked.

Not usually a problem with Xrays, always a problem with Losis's.

I've read here people are using the 12 degree castor hubs to calm the steering down. What other benefits do they provide?

More overall on power steering and stability in the sweepers... I still prefer the stock setup personally.

more overall on power steering??? I have a set and if anything it takes steering away on power and off. So i dont understand how it gives more on power steering, maybe for other cars which i dont know but ill tell you this the 12 degree hubs didnt help my car get more steering, if anything it smooths it out and takes away steering. If I am wrong and others havent had the same experience as me please let me know as I would love to know how to get more on power steering while smoothing the car out with the 12 degree hubs. I myself had to remove them and go back to the 9 degree ones

Does it inhibit the tight turning radius with 180's on the track?

http://site.petitrc.com/setup/HowToSuspensionSetup/

There are plenty more articles that explains how caster affects on power steering.

From the hudy offroad setup manual.
"Camber is all about contact patch – keeping as much tire on the ground as possible.
Camber and caster are related in that caster can afford an amount of EFFECTIVE CAMBER
change when the front wheels are turned in a corner.
Caster has the effect of progressively leaning the front tires into the direction of the
corner. The more the caster angle is laid-back, the greater the effective camber change
when the wheels are turned. This happens because the tops of the wheels BOTH TILT
towards the inside of the corner; the wheels “dig in” more, counteracting the centrifugal
forces pushing the car to the outside."
