I'd be carful using alu ball studs. I had them for the shock on my CRC and ended up crashing out of several races after they snapped sending my into the barriers at the end of the straight at near full speed.

Default Gearing range problem

The track I run on likes about 95mm of rollout for 17.5 blinky. I'm just building my X12, and I'm having trouble getting a large enough pinion to fit. I have a 76 tooth spur (it seems hard to find smaller ones) and the largest pinion that will fit is a 52 tooth, which gives around 90mm with 41-42mm rear tires.

Should I just run larger tires, or try to find a 74 tooth spur? Any solutions?

spur gears with the 3/32 balls will not work with the stock axel only gears with 1/8 inch balls will work with the stock axle or graphite X-ray axel

So, do you know of any spurs smaller than 74 teeth with 1/8 inch balls? Or should I just switch to mod? Or bug my club to run 13.5?

Xenon direct drive spur gears go down to 75T...only 1 tooth larger so it should be close enough.

Love the Xenon gears. They do 16 1/8 balls in that size I believe.

What are the different battery mounting options for? I see it can be mounted horizontally, or left or right vertically (inline).

Im guessing its for horizontally is more for onroad tracks and the left or right inline mounting options is geared for oval (or left or right turn bias?)

How rare is it for Xray to have missing parts in their packaging? I just got the kit in the mail and Im missing the caster spacers and reactive caster position holes.

I emailed Xray about it and just waiting for their reply, but want to see if anyone experienced anything like this from Xray.

Pretty bummed out to receive the kit just to find out I have to wait longer before I can go racing.

The biggest problem of inline is lack of space . They narrow the car too much that most esc wont fit in inline configuration.
