I prefer the XRAY links myself. We used them on carpet and on ashalt with great success. The car has a tendency to stay flatter with them, which on our track that has pretty high bite helps prevent traction rolling.
Does it matter, or is it an issue to use the Xray links on the AE conversion when using the AE center pivot?

We always use the AE center pivot. The new XRAY pivot is actually a copy of the AE one. With the '14 X12, I used to install the AE center pivot as well.

Honestly, we have not even started with it. I still have not had a source for a reasonable rear diff, so have not looked at it.

I will hopefully get on something soon. While we are at it though, what is an F1 racer's wishlist consist of? Which features would you guys want?

Here's my wishlist:

Slider rear pod like your RR12
Dual dampener setup
Prime Shock
Floating battery mount (like TRF102)
Floating servo mount
Ability to use F104 or Exotek front end.
Ability to mount the (1s-sized) 2s battery inline or sideways (like this one)

A conversion is probably the way to go, where people can source the rear diff and front end of their liking. I have some sketches done, I'll get back on the project soon.

These are the balls I used for the XRay links since the XRay balls were out of stock. But it appears I bought the last set of Kyosho balls. You can still use the part number though if you go the cheaper Kyosho route. The balls work great. http://www.amain.com/rc-cars/kyosho-...yofm624/p27430

Or the other option is to use Serpent S100/S120 link balls. That is what I run.

Mine is still rocking the proto #3 chassis parts with the production slider rear pod.
We run the long shock configuration on high bite. 738 gr with an RR12SS Body

Jorge just has one of the original prototype chassis, the profile at the rear is a little different, but no much else.

I have not tested 2.0, however I have been running 2.25 quasi material on my personal cars for a while and actually don't see much difference from the regular 2.5 chassis. Going forward, all cars will be moved over to the 2.25 material which sheds about 10 or so grams if I recall correctly. The World GT is 2.25 quasi as well.

I think the 2.0, even in quasi might be a little too soft for higher bite applications, but we can certainly build one like this if anyone would want it. We keep the material in stock.

I have been using this car for quite a while and I like it a lot. I don't change it much, I just seem to maintain it as it is and I have been very impressed with that aspect. We ran Mod 12th Scale last night and I loved it. I finally broke something on it...the dampening tube, side spring plate. It took a nasty high speed sweeper tumble off the track when the front lifted up into the air. I continued driving it after that but I knew something was wrong and pulled it off after 5-8 laps of fighting it. Other than that, the car was fine. I have been very pleased. Thanks to Cristian for making a sweet car.

Jorge, we are going to have work for it pretty hard this weekend. That guy from Japan is pretty dang fast. He better add some weight to that 600 gram car though.
