I am guessing you are talking about the "post" on the speedo. I found the wires lay better and I did not have to work around the antenna mount.
I did balance tweak the car. With this electronic position the car is centered on the tweak bubble without springs touching. All I done is move the springs down to a equal position with about 1/2 turn preload.

What are the reason of running short links vs. long links?

As the pod twists the links pull the pod round causing rear end steering. The longer the links, the less this happens. Just about every new car out has the long links now so it seems to be generally accepted as better than the short ones now.

And yes, the XL chassis is long link only.

Congratulations to Elliott Harper for his first UK 12th scale Nationals TQ and win with the CRC Gen-XL today at round 4 (stock class) in Plymouth.

(Must be because he looked mine over last Saturday )

how balanced is the car side to side when running the esc behind the servo? or are most of you guys just putting the esc on the side like most cars?

It all comes down to what ESC/Rx/servo etc. you actually have as they are all different sizes. Also whether you run a receiver pack or booster. You can only really find out properly by laying everything out and doing a balance test.

The good thing is that the XL gives us the space to try more layouts out, and to get the ESC closer to the centre of the car, which most others don't.

Default ?? on spring rates

Anyone compare the front spring rates to the "standard" rate used by assoc-- ect? The CRC rates run higher numbers-Is a 50 CRC compareable to -say a .20? How are they measured? I don't have ready acsess to small CRC parts and have boatloads of other springs.Anyone have a clue?

The main difference in the springs is that the Associated springs are about 0.5 mm longer than the CRC springs. The spring "rate" is actually the measurement of the wire strand. The CRC springs are measured in millimeters and the Associated springs are measured in inches.

I just found out the lower pod is a bit weak on the left front side. It has a crack where the optional left Al. wheel mount goes. I recommend as soon as it is available buy the Al. Left wheel mount.
