Cheers,
In the main I ran a Team Scream tuned Kill Shot with 65* of timing with 49-76 gearing.
Rear tires were 1.65". Motor temp was 130's*f after 8 minutes and lap times started at 9.8's and finished 10.1/10.2's.

I also tried 50* of timing with a 56-76 gearing and turned almost identical times.

Anybody got a Hobbywing 1s (the old version, not the new v3.1 version) laying around that you want to get rid of? If so, PM me, as I need to pick up one.

how much are you trying to save? CRC is blowing them out for $99 and hobbypartz for $89. those are both very good values

I ran XI/XL and like it a lot. after switching to XtI for two day I crush the car onto the concrete wall by accident, I didn't feel sad at all. so I go back to XI/XL. Xti to me is a race car. everything has to be well done before placing the car into track. in my local public track, we normally run the same tire without truing it, therefore fast ride height adjustment is very important. on Xti the front ride height is very difficult without dropping parts. the rear is nice except when tire has uneven wear out the drive shaft will not sit horizontally well hence affecting the power transfer a bit. the rear slide pod is a nice idea, just need to make some marking on the pod to allow easier balance of the drive shaft.

to me the ideal car for my local track is a XL with front mount servo and a marked slider pod not to mention a minimum cut off of the chassis. The Japanese version XL chassis is nice, all it need is the front mount servo cutting.

Finally got my car back on the track after a long layoff. I really gave the lower pod plate made out of the new material a workout and it passed with flying colors! The track had a kink in a high speed section that had a gap in the pipes that had ripped a few arms off TCs during the day. I managed to catch the right rear tire on it and watch the car spin down the straight. An impact like that would have ripped the entire pod off the car with the old material. This time I was able to drive away and finish the race!

Big thumbs up to CRC for addressing the problem.

AMR 12 or TR-12. I personally like the AMR best, but I haven't driven a lot with the TR.

You clearly know this car. Some of us have been asking or a starting asphalt setup (med traction, xti, not altered ego), can you offer some suggestions?

I have never run this car on asphalt.

Let me see If I can get ahold of a few CRC guys who have and see what they have for a starting point.

I noticed in this picture the side springs mounted in a more medial position that my instructions show. What would be the handling affect of this?

Put mine together and ran it for the first time with the factory setup and the car was outstanding. Very balanced and easy to drive. Was running 13.5 blinky but had a low roll out. Increased that and will test more this week.

hey guys I'm starting to consider this chassis for the up coming season. I believe we might be going 13.5 blinky so would inline or T set up be more beneficial.

I also noticed that there is a alter ego chassis kit avail too. just curious what that might be all about.

Cheers

The stock chassis is in-line only. The Altered Ego kit allows you to run the car with the battery crosswise. I run mine in-line in 13.5 blinky and like it a lot. But it comes down to personal preference.

did anyone else running the spektrum h5020g servo have issues with mounting? as the only way i could get it o fit was to dremel the carbon brace the arms mount onto.

im hoping it hasn't weakened it to much that it will not crack in an accident?
