Its not going to a CRC style but there were some revisions to help with the slop that develops I believe.

They have a new car each year that is revised with changes we have learned throughout the year. This year will be no exception. Since Vegas last year my car has really performed well (2nd 13.5 IIC, TQ and 1st Halloween race, A main at Snowbirds, TQ and 1st at ROAR carpet nats) with some small changes that should be incorporated into the 2015 version.

Those are spec tires that are cut to a spec size. They are made by CRC but im not sure what exact tires they are.

Very nice build, not too sure about the body mounting deal though

Hmm, brass PCB spacers/pillars.

Not the lightest way of doing things and certainly not the strongest.

I got a used X12 2014, and I have a few questions about it...

I's a very nice car, but a little heavy ( I was at 762g). So I switched to alloy screws and saved 12g.

The motor that came with it is Team Icon 17.5t motor (never heard of this before...). I'll switch to an Orca RX3 which is at least 10g lighter.

I wanted a spare rear axle, so I ordered a graphite (V3) axle. Can anybody tell me what the weight difference is between the graphite and the steel axle??

Also, the 2015 version has some shims to adjust the camber gain (called upper arm position adjustment shims). Is it worth using some of these shims on the 2014 version to make the car a littleless twtchy? Actually, I was thinking of pretty much using the 2015 box setup on my 2014 (minus the shock position of course). What do you thinkof this? (med traction carpet track)

Thank you!

CF axle is about 10g lighter than steel one.

Sure, remove the nob in the a-arm and change to longer screws add 1,5mm shims. Remember adjust camber link length. You can also test more shims to find your sweet spot.
Use also ae 020 springs, steering is more neutral.
