Perfect. I will be ordering the #109 right now.

Greetings goin2drt. My appologies; you probably measured correctly[according to your application].My intention was simply to illustrate instructions. I've acquired all three Slapmaster kits - there have been several manufacture's axels on my pancars(1/12 & 1/10) so having the reliability in these thrust bearings means on less item for between heat maintenance.

Is there a conversion kit from XTI to XTI WC? What are the changes? Thanks in advance.

If you have the AE version of the XTI, it is an easy chassis and U plate. If you have an inline XTI, well then it's not easy and may not be practical to upgrade. I did ask if a conversion was in the works and got a simple "no".

Looked at your setup sheet. Have question about the notes. What did you experience to make that comment. I am not sure I understand the part about left and over-rotation.

Another question about the upper plate on the motor pod. Is the hole you used on 3263 the same as the only hole of the stock plate to mount the center shock?

For a minute there I thought Slapmaster had gone all the way to Australia to race toy cars, then I remembered there is a town called "Sidney" in Canada.

The car was flat out fast! That's why I made that comment. Fast to Last; .5ths in R3! In the main, I had some coaster laps at the end.

The #3263 rr top plate is a hold over from my mod car. This car was my back up from Worlds, I went with twins and I just haven't replaced that upper plate for stock one. To answer, the rr hole on the 3263 is about a 1/4" fwd of the stock hole, therefore the shock is more fwd in the car. A more fwd shock in the car is more a mod thing theory that I am still working on. But the basis of it is: more fwd shock is better in med to high grip while more rearward shock is better in low to med grip. It's a work in progress.

The Sidney track for the last two years has had this switch back hockey stick thing leading onto the straight. It is a heavy line of traction there! My set up has quite a bit of on throttle steering. That particular spot, I could lift the inside rear tire which could over rate the car causing it to pop the heal of the hockey stick. The trick there was to lay down more power and sling shot out a bit instead of running the rail. Clear as mud?

I was in Sydney, Au not long ago looking for tracks. Didn't have a rental car at the time so it didn't work out. But yeah, the other Sidney on Cananda's Big Isl.

I want to say that is Sanwa's version of Air 94761, I think the specs are just a little zippier then the Airtronics.

Yes, Brian. It is. I have had times on heavy traction where my car would lift the inside rear wheel. It has happened on almost every brand car I have ever had. Tried soft, medium and hard dampening. Tried soft, medium and heavy springs. I did have some success with raising the rear roll center, but that was it. But this is extremely challenging when you have inconsistent traction around the layout. It was so bad for me at one Snowbirds that the car would flip over itself across the track.

Yes, I am virtually sure it was the Sanwa SRG-HR. I have tried very hard with the Airtronics importer to bring it in but they won't do it. Last time I bought it was from RC-Mushroom. This servo is small, but strong enough for the WGT chassis.

Ok thanks I don't have a CRC car but was considering an xti, but without a conversion kit just getting a new kit makes more sense if I decide to buy another car.

It is the best servo for 1/12 in my opinion and I've tried several. I got mine from here:

Slapmaster (Brian) - Did you experience the center chassis rubbing the carpet during the WC? I heard that some drivers experienced that and had to use stiffer center springs to stop the chassis from rubbing the carpet.

I've had a XTi-WC on backorder for a month. Everyone seems to be out of stock. Currently running a Gen-Xi that I've converted to the slider pod. Is it at all possible to convert this to the XTi-WC? What would I need besides the main chassis, front u-plate and XTi tweak plate (but which one do I use?)
Wish they would put the assembly manual for the WC online so I could reference part #s.
