This set up is working very well for me. This is a Xti transverse set up which will also work as an Altered Ego set up. If you like inline Xti, go 10k in the tubes, blue side springs. King pin length should be .401" on the silver front springs or .406" using blacks.

That was me being lazy and not looking up the part #. It's the 3279 roll center adjusters that sandwich between the lower arm and the caster block. They alter roll center just like they claim. For lower grip, it's nice to run the car without them to get the car to cut a little harder. As grip builds, you can raise the caster block to take some of the edginess out of the car. I like to run a softer front tire most of the time therefor I default to having the spacer in full time. Now that I see they are spec'ed out at 2.0 & 2.5mm, I might actually have the 2.5 in the car. After you have raised the caster block and the car is still a bit too edgy, then add a front top brace. I see a lot of guys running a top brace with med to low grip when it's not needed.

I personally really like this one and it was strongly recommended:
AIR94761Z Servo-Mini Digital High Torque for 1/18 Micro; 66 oz./.12 sec

Hi all,
Getting back into 1/12 scale and probably gonna get the xti. I will be running on a small track roughly 20x40 17.5 blinky. I was wonder if you would recommend the alter ego chassis for this and if anyone has a setup they would share for a small track.

Thanks for the help

My picks for what is needed would be the front ride height shims, the Encore shock spring set, and the side spring set.
