I have not yet as the X-ray website does not have the new setup sheets for the new cars yet that I can find.

When will the front width adjuster be available ? the front is too wide for my liking, I need more steering without making the rear too soft (stock spring was too soft in the center shock and side, I switched to black center and AE blue side).

Too wide? The car is 3mm narrower in the front than the previous car. But to answer the question I have not been given a release date yet. Martin did say at IIC that they are running 24/7 right now due to no inventory and high demand on every car. They are also in the process of adding to their already massive machining area with more machines.

But it is wider than xii and my previous crc xi. I am running in asphalt which is quite different from carpets. It is nice the width is adjustable but I really wish they have the part included in the kit just like the ride height shim.

Another difference is that we run thick tire here and the shim is not enough by 2extra mm. I made my own from broken chassis carbon

Is the body mounting position the same as the X12? (Will my bodies drop on the new chassis?)

Yes but you'll need a new hole for the roll over mast.

My first choice was a bls651, but the price was over $100, so I went with the 9650. I ran into the same issue you had with your steel pivot balls not allowing the kingpin to go through. I just ordered the composite ones. They were a bit pricey.
