If you want to run the solid chassis...

What else do you need?

Longer side link 3281?

Do you need the transverse kit also?

Where do you mount the side springs?

Thanks,
I believe you'd still need the tranverse kit - assuming you're planning on running your battery sideways

yes, the longer link is needed

side springs mount on the tranverse 'top deck' - I guess you could use the standard Xti top deck, but not sure how that would all work out.

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
New CRC springs? Due tell...

Most of the cars I saw there were Altered Ego versions of the Xti. I did see a couple stock in-line Xtis though.

If the person in my heats that I was talking to about their chassis is on this forum please PM me. I believe it was a father/son team that had made their own chassis.

Just a quick note to congratulate Randy Grosse and Andrew Knapp for winning the 17.5 and 13.5 classes at the 2013 IIC.

Randy Grosse used a VERY STOCK, inline CRC Xti car to dominate the A-main. Randy lapped up to 3rd setting fast lap in the process. Randy used a stock, inline Xti. No Altered Ego, no transverse kit, stock, the way the Xti comes in the box. John Wiita finished second with his CRC ride. The 4 CRC cars in the A-main finished 1-2-4-5, great result!

Randy also used the CRC Rocket Fuel 1s pack, Black Art R8C body as well as CRC Pro Cut tires.

In 13.5, Andrew Knapp dominated qualifying winning 3 of 4 rounds (CRC's Mitch Witteman won the other). Andrew led wire to wire with his CRC Xti in the transverse battery position. Not an Altered Ego version, Andrew chose the standard Xti with the transverse battery position. Knapp used the R8C body and CRC Pro Cut tires.

We WILL get these setups on the website. Thanks for all the support and kind words.
