Welcome to the XRAY X12'18 Thread & Wikipost! Here you will find some useful info, tips and tricks as well as setups that are used by several team drivers. Many of us run the X12'18 on high bite carpet and with most US tracks going to the new black CRC carpet, most setups from here out will be developed for those high bite conditions.

Tips & Tricks:
The latest front-end builds up super nice, especially the US version. Since there are fewer molded parts, we are noticing the US front-end to be more symmetrical and consistent.

As with any 1/12 pan car, a smooth operating suspension is critical to performance. It is recommended to polish your kingpins & hinge pins using a dremel or a drill and some sort of polish (IE Gravity polish or Mothers Aluminum polish will work). If you find that your suspension has a bind, you may look at using a reamer or drillbit to make sure the holes are clear of any flashing or debris. Some reamer sizes to consider having are 3mm and 2mm for the kingpin and the upper hinge pin. Be careful not to remove too much material if you decide to ream your plastics.

When building your pod, it is advised to use any wrench w/ 3mm shafts to help build the pod perfectly square. See photo:
