I ran over the weekend at NORCAR's annual Vegas Warm-up race.
A TQ and win for my XTi ride!
Here's a pic and the set up I used.
Take note, the CRC carpet was just put down on a new subfloor and the traction was very high!

Set up:

Front:
1.60" grays, 1/2 inside SXT, sidewall glued
.50mm springs (.01" gap between steering block and lower pivot ball)
10* blocks, 2 shims back
1* camber
3.5mm clearance

Rear:
stock shock oil with windtunnel blue "v-hive" spring
CRC blue side springs
15K in tubes, outside elevated
1.65" grays, 3/4 middle SXT, safety glue on seem
3.5mm clearance
1.5mm droop

Notes:
Black Art body
Power Push White Lightening battery
Team Scream motor (Trinity based Killshot)
Hobbywing 1s ESC

Thanks for the update SG1! I'm going to have to try the gray front/ gray rear tire combo.

Thanks for sharing Wayne. The transparency is nice.

They are CRC tires, I put adhesive wheel dots on.

For glue, I have some cheap brush on super glue from Walmart

Center spring, I thought the car was more balanced from high to low speed on the high bite track.
I just got all the new CRC springs in (center shock and side) and haven't tried them yet I'll be trying those in 2 weeks (next road race) and let you know which ones work the best at my track

Been running my xti with the standard chassis mod to run the cell across the car not the altered ego. With what I would consider a minor hit it seems to pop the centre shock off. I have replaced the plastic parts but its not much better. Any ideas?

Thanks

Check to see that your battery isn't causing it. Shim the shock up 1-2 mm for clearance and see if that helps.

Hey Guys,
On the Altered Ego chassis can the servo be mounted in the standard configuration (servo saver facing foward) and if so are there holes in the chassis to mount the angle type servo mounts (Aluminum Servo Mount - 4 hole Anodized 4017) ?
Thanks

In short, yes. I have mine mounted on the angled mounts, I feel the car just runs better that way.

Sorry if this has been covered, I can't find it.

If you want to run the solid chassis...

http://www.teamcrc.com/crc/modules.p...prodID=7719466

What else do you need?

Longer side link 3281?

Do you need the transverse kit also?

Where do you mount the side springs?

Thanks,
