Is the XI a complete roller, meaning it actually has wheels and tires in kit? I'm guessing it doesn't have a body, getting ready to order one.

Correct Fred.

It comes with tires and a servo mount, though I would recommend you eventually replace both.

Alsso front knuckles and C-hubs.


Pretty much standard stuff needed for moost touring cars.

So no glaring weak points, from running the car ?

I have one coming gonna see if my Losi jrxs type r shocks will work, but I will initially build it stock and only add what makes it better, getting back into on road after a layoff of a few years, hope the Snowbirds will run USGT I will definitely run that if so. I'll be on here looking for tips and at some point hopefully giving some.

Default Loose rear end

I've been running my new Sakura Xi Sport on a tennis court with the stock wheels and tires and its been oversteering like crazy. Any turn I do over half-throttle results in a drift easily. What should I buy to make it stop acting like this? Or is it just my stock wheels and tires? I was kind of thinking maybe using a "front stabilizer set". Tell me what you think.

The stock box setup should be adequate.

If you are spinning out, how much dual rate is on your steering? Also, I found that without swaybars, front toe needs to be less than 0.5 degrees out. Also check your droops and ride height settings.

I just came back from an asphalt race in Victoria and the kit tires are not the greatest. So if you do not have setup tools, a set of HPI D-compound x-patterns would be a good investment for driving around outside.

Hey Rod.

The floating servo mount looks cool. If for any other reason, that alone is worth getting it. LoL

A floating servo mount gives your servo a single point of contact to the chassis, which allows the car to freely flex, as two bolted down servo posts actually prohibit the car from properly flexing.

For average Joe's like us, it won't really make a difference. But if you got $20 to spare, it's a really cool looking addition to the car.

Cool just getting back into R/C after taking up golf a few years ago, I really want to go to the Snowbirds in '16 and I am lobbying for USGT to be a class there
