I was a little light so I ended up putting 7 grams of lead on both sides of the speed control and ended up with 47% weight on the front. The good news is the car worked very well. Last weekend the fast lap here was my Xi at an 11.322 with two other racers running 11.467 and 11.490 in the main. The heats for round 2 were in the 11.6 to 11.7 range. Fortunately the XTi ran mostly in the 11.7's with a best of 11.625 today. This to me isn't bad since we only had two cars on the track and it was a bit dirty from the off road track next to it.

Hello fellow CRC Xti owners!

I preordered mine, waiting to arrive end of the week or early next week. Since I live in "EUROland" I need to know what items do I need to stock up? Please help me with where to get the parts?

I tought the screws pack, spurs, ... ?

I will be running custom "open" setup as where we run we do not have any limitations on the cells and motors nor weight. 3S 1000mAh or 4S 800mAh setup with 17.5 or 21.5 motors :-) I run now 1800 2S on 13.5 motor with 80/26 gearing in Xray XII link. Very light. :-)

Well my Xti is in the mail. After a couple years of not running pan car this car convinced me to get into it again.

Two questions:

1) What standard hex/nut drivers are needed to build this kit? (why can't it be metric haha)

2) What is a good starting rollout for a 10.5 on a 80X50 track?

Thanks in advance.

No idea on on roll-out.

Started assembling my kit last night, and I have a question about the pod movement. It states that the pod should move freely, but does that mean it should flop around loose? I got mine to move smoothly, but it doesn't move on it's own if I let it go.

I always set mine up so it falls on its on weight.

The locknuts are 3/16" hex.

The pod should fall under it's own weight, especially if the added weight of the pod plates are already installed. If it does not, then you will need to loosen the fit on either the center pivot, or the side link pivot balls, or both. just go a little at a time on the clamping screws on both pieces and get the pod to flop around easily without making any excessive play in either of these pivots.

Thanks. I messed with it last night and got it set. I had the side links too tight, which was binding the movement. Are there any tricks to setting them, or is it just trial and error?
