Yeah I run mine flat , I tried crc blue still need thicker oil and I think I'll be set . Cornering is so much better then with the crc chassis . Please post some picture of the new Hallo hobbies ( CEFX ) track !

Will the TC4 steering rack work on the XLR8? The steering rack on my XLR8 is free when moved by hand (no servo linkage), but it binds so bad when the servo is connected that the servo can't turn the wheels to full lock or recenter correctly. The rack is shimmed as per the directions. I'm using an airtronics 94758 servo and a Kimborough saver. Any suggestions? I'd like to try the TC4 style rack if it will fit

It will work with a little bit of riggin'. Try finding a sleeve that will allow you to use the rack bushings on the rack screws. Then the TC3/4 rack will work with no problems. A guy did that with his last weekend at our track. He just found a temporary solution that was to shim the bearings one way to keep them tight. A sleeve would be the optimal solution or bearings with the right dimensions. I'm working on this very thing, right now.

Default TC3/4 steering rack

The TC3/4 steering rack works great!!! you need to get some 5-40 bolts to get rid of the excess slop in the bearings. Thats what I found out from a little trial and error. You also have to take the spring out of the rack. you need to take the spring out because the screw sticks out and will hit the chassis.

The steering rack on the XLR8 has been updated!! The steering bushings were the problem since they were a one piece bushing they were fighting eachother (never had a problem with the prototype parts). Simple fix was to cut the bushings into two parts making 4 bushings similar to the stock TC3 bushings.. This got rid of binding when force is applied! now the rack is smooth! The TC4 rack will not fit, We have mounted the stock TC3 rack and that will work if thats your last option.. We are also raising the rack to get rid of some of the bump steer, it also makes it so you can get full right to left throw without any problems.. The kits have been updated as well.

We are also mounting the shocks on the inside of the shock tower and flipping the arms around.. You will have to shim the shocks out a little at the top on the shock tower, but this makes the car very quick on short or tight tracks..

holla, Digs

Max, Jason:
I will give the new steering bushings to Tim so he can bring them to you on Sat morning, I wont be there till about 1:30 if I can even make it... He will let you know whats up.. Let me know if you guys get it right...


The new D12V2 appears to need WAY heavy dampening, maybe even go to the three shock set-up!! You will want to run 20 or 22 front springs and make sure your electronics are mounted far back on the chassis... you can also try the 5degree front blocks? IMPORTANT: Make sure when you set your ride height to make sure there is a slight arch between the main chassis and the rear pod or you will not get the rear end to work quite right, this is a little different operation then a typical 1/12th rear end. The middle spring needs to take most of the weight transfer on the chassis, not the side springs.. Also make sure you have some rear droop on the shock and rear pod... K, cool!

l8tr, Digs

I was actually going to try the electronics mounted near the back of the main chassis to give the rear end more weight. That will prolly help with the rear end hopping. As for side springs. Digs do you have any extra's? I need some.

Max - I've got an extra spring set in my toolbox, in case you don't get any from anyone else.
