Drove the 12 for the first time at our carpet track tonight. It brought back memories of the first time I drove my T2... Smooth, stable and predictable, like everyone says, the kit carpet setup is very close too. Good job Xray!

Hi All

Quick, and probably basic question about this car (and also other cars). When you remove shims from underneath the ball stud on the inside of the camber link (so the bit that screws into the bulhead clamp) are you lowering or raising the roll centre?

Lowering the ball studs on the clamps will raise the roll centre.

Hi, lately i have been using hpi (front) pink or silver and (rear) blue. The car felt better with these on asphalt.

The xray springs feel like that the car has more grip though.

Before I go too crazy, building the front end, the arms front and rear are not dropping freely. I have only the arms on now. When the screws are tightened they bind up. Now the arms move freely on the hinge pins so that is good, there's just some binding between the hinge pin holders and the arms. My building experience tell me to lightly sand (2000 grit) the ends of the arms till they move freely. Any other methods? or am I doing something wrong?

Sorry for the newbie-ish question...just been a while.

I had a similar issue building my 2011. Before you start sanding anything, try loosening each screw until the arm drops freely, then slowly tighten each screw a half turn at a time, making sure the arm holder doesn't twist. Might take a few attempts to get the feel for it, but you should be able to get everything tightened up with all the suspension arms moving freely.

Seems like once the car gets a bit of track time on it, removing the arm holders to adjust shims and such either make any binding less of an issue, or just go easier because you can do it without thinking about it.

You may also try the build tip of tapping the arms lightly with a screwdriver handle in order to ensure that the holders are seated properly square to the arm....
