Awesome! When you are ready, we'll take care of you.

Here is my set up from this weekend for those of you that want to know.

Chassis: RR12V2 Aluminum
Body: RSD R12SS Mounted +4mm forward, with rear wing cut down 3mm
Motor: EA Motorsports D4 1S 17.5 42 deg timing
Pinion: 54
Spur: 76
Battery: IP 7000
Battery Position: In line

Front:
-Tube 30K Kyosho
-Springs: Yokomo R12 Black
-Arms: No spacing under pillow ball (low roll center)
-Caster ~2-3deg (I kinda eyeball it with a camber gauge, but I never measure it. Rather I use it as an adjustment for more in corner steering. If I am looking for more mid corner, I add a little. Starting set up is always 2)
-Camber: 1.5 Left 1.25 Right (Just make sure your tires wear flat typically and adjust for it)
-Knuckle: 2mm under Xenon 0 deg knuckle, 1.2 above and rest of shims on top (usually 3) underneath the arm, use the 5mm spacer to placehold where a spring would go on the reverse strut
-Droop 0.2mm
-Ride height 3.5 (this low is not usually capable with a carbon chassis, use 3.8mm minimum for front with Carbon Chassis)
-Width: 2 AE Axle shims on axle to widen out front end.
-JFT C40 F 40.00mm with super glue 1/3 sauce inside tire

Center:
-35WT Oil in shock
-AE Red Spring
-3mm under shock ends at both ends of shock
-Furthest most forward shock position at both ends
-0.5mm droop
-chassis level

Back:

Tubes: AE 10K oil
Spring: RSD Green 1/2 turn of pre load
Ride Height: 3.5mm
Width: 171mm
Tires: JFT C35R 40.8mm Sauce 8min
Wheelbase: +2mm shim


Misc:
94761 Servo spaced down 4mm to be level with chassis. This is done to eliminate bump steer in corner. Additionally 3mm of spacing are used under steering arm ball links.

Christian,

Just kidding! Told you you really hit it great with this one!

It's a version 2 car, we run the striped spec tires at our track. Seems my car scrubs a lot of corner speed , trying to figure it out. Any advice would be great.

I think the set up above could be good for stripes as well.

I wanted to tell everyone about my experience with the car this past weekend. I got the car last Thursday night and spent that evening swaping my electronics over from a crc xti wc. I used a hobbywing 3.1, team ea battery, airtronics servo and a d4 short stack 17.5. I did no weight savings what so ever and was affraid with the aluminum chassis and the heavy hobbywing I was going to be ridiculously heavy. To my surprise I was only at 778 grams which was 2 grams less than the crc. Plus the crc was using a crc light weight body and on the rr12 I used a regular weight Straka as thats all I had at the time. The body alone was an extra 20 grams. So with that I knew this car could be just as light as any other car out there.
On race day I showed up having never drove the car and relied on CT to set it up to the exact setup that he uses. Car was great first time out. I was only a few tenths off the other fast guys at the time. After finding the correct rollout for the car and track I got to within 1 tenth of the leaders and finished on the same lap after the 8min main and I know the 50 grams of extra weight was hurting me by atleast a couple tenths. Only thing I changed from CT's setup was center shock spring. The car didn't have much entry steering but great mid and exit. I opted to run a red crc as it was the next lightest I had and it worked great. All I did through out the day was check screws and ride height. I have since went through the car and swaped out most the screws and nuts for aluminum and have dropped 15 grams in that alone. Coupled with a light weight body I'm back in the ballpark for 17.5 weight. I can already tell this car is a winner and after a few club races Im sure I'll have it on top the leaderboards.
I just wanted to thank CT for all the help and pointers he has offered up over the last couple months, it has definitely helped me on the track.

Whatever the wait, it will be worth it. The front suspension alone makes that car worth the wait.

I don't have mine yet. I've seen the car first hand, though when I was in Houston last month. Really great design.

The car is revolutionary and I can almost bet money on it that XRay and/or CRC makes a similar version in the next year or so once they see how fast this thing can be around the corners. This car is one of Cristian's biggest accomplishments. I think Mile High will show that this year. I can think of about 6 will be there off the top of my head.
