Anyone else have an gear knowledge in 13.5??
80-85mm rollout seems the norm. I run about 81mm on a fairly tight technical track with a 12.5HT D3.5.

Thanks!
I'm running the fantom 3.5 as well, boost all the way up. With the gearing above, it's coming off at around 50 deg Celsius.
The track is large by 1/12 standards (pretty good size for even T/C)
With 86mm roll out, I was getting top speed 3/4 on straight, which is why I will try 91mm next!

I know what you mean! Mine handles fantastic, even with all the play! My T4's are the same!
I have the track record in 13.5 with mine!

This is my first time running 12th and ive bought this car to run. Ive a couple of questions if anyone can help me.

Are all the 12th servos the same dimensions as ive got the Savox one and I cant get the horn in the centre line of the chassis which means the steering arms are different lengths.

If they arent which servo do I need so I can get it into the centre.

Cheers Mike

Buy a Futaba 9650. The car was designed around the dimensions of this servo.

I'd say it was actually designed around the KO PDS-951/949 (it's pictured in every one of their 1/12 kits) but the Futaba fits just fine as well.

Hey guys,

Anyone that has been interested in tamale pods for your car should grab one before they are gone. We are no longer going to carry them and there are only 4 left. once gone they are gone.

Just built my first Xray 1/12, the quality, compared to my CRC Xi, is far better on the Xray.

While messing around last night fitting the servo I noticed that the mounting holes in the chassis are not the same distance apart, ie, when mounted on the right, the holes are slightly closer together than mounting on the left, can't remember whether it was 0.5mm or closer to 1mm.
So if the servo doesn't quite fit comfortably on the side you want, try the other side.

what is the advantages of straight spring vs. conical with similar C rating ? why is there only c1.2 in straight while conical goes up to c 1.7 ?
I ran in medium traction asphalt track where are Xray X12 )non-2014) uses conical 1.7 to reduce the coning of front tyre.

No they will not. Xray uses a unique length on the links.

My ROAR Carpet Nats Winning setup is posted on Xrays Site. The car was an absolute dream to drive and was the best 12th I have ever driven.
