I have had the AE RC1212r5 and 5.1 and have now moved over to Xray for the 12th. To look at there is very little difference in the two kits just shape of parts but layout is nearly the same. Too be honest back to back I would say they also drive the same IMO. I like the T3 so thought I would stick with Xray for my 12th I also think the X11 is better quality and goes together well.

i run a crc and a x ray link ll, and it really took alot of other parts to dial my link in,like a hotbodies center shock, ae springs all the way around,team tamales parts and a crc rear axel....although i will say its a good car it is basically a classy version of ae12r5.1..as for my crcxl well its just plain out fast and reliable,holds a setup real well and i can keep up with the fast guys...hopefully x ray gets a few things together with the link because i hate having to order parts from three other companies to keep one car going....just my opinion though...i mean i run a tcx and use a lot of tamiya parts...go figure...

This is not in production at this time. If anyone is interested in this, pm or email me and I will gage the interest in this to see if it is viable to produce and what the price would have to be.

I ran the new Blocks and dampening tube conversion today. As alway TeamTamale stuff is top notch. It was nice to be able to change the dampening in the car alot faster then rebuilding the side shock. The car felt more stable thruout the run also. Body mounts in the same place as the old crossbar so no need for new holes or body. Plus I can use all my old IRS rear pills for ride hight.

Yeah, Larry does great work. The new blocks are on Chris' car and it helps that we can use other pills. The XII Link is a great kit, the fastest 12th car at our track.

i'm only just starting to play with this kit, but so far i've managed to smash our track records for lap time and # laps all with a setup straight from the box..

that being said, it could always be better.. so i have a couple questions..

what track widths front and rear are people running?
what reactive and static caster?

You need to check out the SpeedMerchant upgrade for the car. It transforms this car. Many of the team drivers will be sporting the SM conversion at the Nats.

the car runs fine out of the box. for club racing I did place 3rd this year at the carpet nats but I did put the team tamale tubes on th e car. just putting tubes help the car a lot. with a lot of testing with the side to side shock I fenlt like I could never get enough damping in the car. the size of the shock I feel is not enough there to get the damping we need. I did get up to 90wt oil in the the shock till the car started to work. with tubes it a lot more constent.

Whos cars? Are they local in victoria or online?

Everyone on the lowermainland has had good success with the kit out of the box, including me. I was at your local track for a club race before speedweekend carpet race in Jan. I tqed and won your club race and qualified 2nd in speedweekend finishing 3rd. That was my 1st weekend on thr car. A month later with bit more time on the chassis i tqed and won our race in abbotsford @ 360. Some of the best drivers in western Cananda were there including Blake and Craig from victoria, the same two who beat me the month before in Victoria. I am super happy with the car but with that said, i am wanting to test the new SM layout..why? Because it is the nature of the hobby..that is what makes it fun.

I am sure you will be happy with the quality and performance XRAY offers...give them a try and see what you find.

For tires in stock Lilac/Yellow or Black/Yellows are easy to drive and work well at most tracks. If its really low bite then maybe pink rears and magenta fronts.

Could you point these tires all out in shore please?
Thanks.
