Cheers, that is helpful. I figured you might know cause your post was the only one I could find anywhere that mentioned dimples. Its a good idea, I wish it was fleshed out better. Cutting out the holes is the most stressful part of getting a body ready, for me at least.

Just bought a CRC XTi Alt Ego 2nd hand. However, all my tools are metric, not imperial. Can anyone give me a quick list of hex/nut drivers required to wrench on this car?

If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.

.050, 1/16, 5/64, 3/32 hex drivers, 3/16 and 11/32 nut drivers should cover anything you need to do.

They replied in another thread to one of my posts saying it was pretty close to a stock altered ego.

Hopefully they do put out a worlds edition with the changes it did have (chassis, u plate and centre spring)

Are you saying that Marc won with an inferior car?

And your assumption is exactly the point. World Champions need equipment that is capable to win and that happened here in this championship. This driver did not make the mistakes of all the other drivers in this event, but his car was fully capable to win and the two things together made the difference.

The Fry post gave the impression that the car was not important, that only the driver was important.

I am very happy for Frank and all the staff at CRC. This is a much deserved championship that has been long overdue. All of the CRC cars and upgrades are World Championship level and now the addition of the driver has provided the results. I think this description fits the situation much better than the other posted above.

There, it finally comes out that "CRC cars are awesome." Is that the reason you are selling your Speedmerchant?

I've never thought any different. I'm not just selling my Speedmerchant I'm selling lots of my collection. Why all the questions?

Since you called it a "collection", I assume you do not assemble and drive these cars. So, I have noticed that you post on many threads about many products, especially 1/12. And you rave about each one as if it is the only one to have. But you have a collection, so that makes you the "most interesting man in the world." I have lots to learn from someone so interesting, therefore, questions.
