Should be building my new car tonight. What is a good starting point set-up wise, will be running 13.5blinky on med/hi bit carpet. Also, this car gives the option of running the battery across the chassis or inline, what is the advantage/disadvantage of each configuration?

Thanks

My setup from the Halloween classic and also IIC is posted on Xrays website. It should be the starting point for all spec classes.

Does the "Aluminum active front brace" work with the new car?

Ran into 2 shitty steel suspension balls too. Pretty bad when you can't even get passed step 2 before you have to order a new part to make your new kit work!

just use whatever tools to enlarge hole as I did. even if you buy another one the problem remains. as reported, I had four and only one usable. even if you buy another pack, there is no guarantee the new one will work.

looks like it is a common issue, Anyone from Xray here ? please report this problem.

I used a diamond tool on my dremel to open them up and polished with a toothpick and mothers polish. Fairly smooth but very crude!

I like the plastic balls in the top of my front suspension.

I went with the four composite too. Both my steel pivot balls were non usable. Other than that, the car was an easy build and well made.

Eric,

Can you give any details about the specifics on the HB shock you used on your car? I'm curious which ball cups/studs you used as well as any other parts you used to allow the use of the Hb shock.

Loving the way my x12 drives! Impressive car!
Still getting the right gear combo for 13.5 blinky though!
I am up to 78 spur and 52 pinion for a roll out of 92 mm! Indoor ashfelt track.

Anyone else have an gear knowledge in 13.5??

So are you guys running all composite balls to reduce slop in front end?

I find the composite balls have more slop, but they are lighter. I run the composite ball in the top, as well as titanium camber link turn buckle to reduce unsprung weight.

Once the car is set up well, it is on rails, very easy to drive. The slop in the front end is the one thing that drives me nuts about this car, but it does not seem to affect the way the car handles in a negative way.
