I'm running 10,000 in the tubes, white side springs and white center spring and 50 front springs.
I'm using sticky finger traction compound with full treatment on the rear and about a 1/4 of the inside of the front tires. I tried a gold center spring that I thought would be softer and that didn't seem to help in fact it might have been a touch worse?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance..

As has already been suggested, I would go up on side damper fluid in this instance. Heavier fluid will make the car feel more locked in on corner entry and give you more control of the rear end. I've been running 20k lately...

Default Asphault car

What would you guys suggest for an outdoor asphault car? I was thinking the "Altered Ego" ?

Default Altered Ego

Dumper or Frank,

At this point if I want the Altered Ego car I need to buy the Xti along with the transverse kit and the Altered Ego chassis. Will you come out with a new kit or will people continue to have to buy three kits? Thank you!

Depends on the track, the motor and the size of your tires. In 1/12TH scale we usually go by roll out: How far your car moves for a single revolution of the motor. 90mm to 100mm is a good ballpark starting point.

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in the new Xti. The tranverse kit is not needed when using the Altered Ego chassis. The transverse wings are incorporated in the Altered Ego chassis.

Currently, we do not have an Altered Ego full kit planned. The stock Xti continues to perform very well in stock trim. The Altered Ego geometry allows the Xti owner to change the characteristics of the car more as an optional tuning tool rather than a "must have" part.

Today at the track, we ran 3 different setups; an Altered Ego chassis with the stock rear plate (Short car), a standard Xti and a limo Xti; Stock chassis with Altered Ego rear end (Very long car). The result showed each configuration had different strengths, but in the end, all were very close. The short car won by .7 seconds, the long car turned the fasted lap and the stock Xti had the fastest top 20.

For most North American 1:12th racing, I suggest the stock Xti. If you run modified on low grip tracks, the Altered Ego setup may be to your liking. If you run stock on a tight bullring, the Altered Ego chassis with the stock rear end may feel a bit better. Any of these configs can win at any time and none of the optional configurations are absolutely needed.

Good luck and thanks again.

CRC

I believe the only part you need for the altered ego chassis setup if you purchase the xti kit, is the Xti transverse battery tweak plate-CLN32113. If you plan on running it transversely of course.....

Not so. With the standard XTI kit and its full inline arrangement, the side links are positioned much more inboard. With the links so much closer to the car's centerline, the battery will only fit inline. The battery won't fit transverse unless the optional chassis or the add-on side wings are fitted in order to space the side links out far enough to allow for the length of a transverse battery.

I'm sayin, if you run the Altered ego Chassis in the transverse style (east/west battery config) you will need the top tweak plate(the plate that holds the springs/ body posts/ tubes/ oring that holds the battery down)from The transverse kit. At least I did when building my Altered ego kit

Well I finally got me an Xti Everything's all built and ready for racing this coming weekend. Overall I really like the layout...there isn't a whole lot of room but when you get everything right where you want it the layout can be really clean looking. The only issue I have is setting ride height on the front end is fairly cumbersome...I can see I'm going to need the optional front ride height shims for sure. Can't wait to get it on the track and turn some laps!

I need the part number for the correct front brace.

I purchased based on the CRC web site, as it is says that it will fit all 1/12th cars, the 3278 (long) and it is to short.
