Anyone looking for a nice upgrade for the car you may want to look here http://www.teamspeedmerchant.com/sho...l/smr6010.html My car was good when it was all stock but the Speedmerchant kit made a huge difference, it's well worth the money.

i dont use the US type foams, but there is a colour chart and on there they are said to be 36sh but maybe it differs between manufacturers.
ive been using xceed ITA mediums, for asphalt and carpet, they grip very well. these are 30sh rear / 35 front.

the steering knuckles develop a bit of play where the king pin goes through.

Im wondering if the hard option knuckles fix this?

i think they could use a set screw to lock them to the king pin.

I have not taken it to race track yet but the kit, like other xray stuff is top quality, way better than my previous pan car.
The only thing that doesnt seem quite right (although not a problem) is the range of adjustment for height of the rear axle. I have to use the +2 inserts (lowest ride height) with worn set of tires and would never use any of the other inserts.
Does it come with friction side dampers nowadays?
Or do they still use a damper?

Still uses a damper. Speed Merchant makes a conversion though.

Makes it a hell of an expensive car with this kit.

Please explain to me, in detail if possible, where the huge difference is.

Default X10 at 2012 IIC

I ran the X10 Link at the 2012 IIC last week; I highly recommend that race.
I'm new to WGT, was fortunate to win the C main. Car handled perfectly, had a clean main.

Here is some pictures of my X10 that has been mod'ed with the X12 tubes on the back end. The car handled great.

Also pictures is the X12, the cars with lights, and of course the trophy! :-)

Are the X12 tubes/parts a direct fit on the X10? Only problem I'd have with that is going back to the narrow body mount locations.

I had to replace more than just adding the tubes.
I had to use the X12's top and bottom pod plate, standoffs and the middle plate that the side springs attach to.
Then the side links attach at a slightly different place so i had to drill and countersync new holes in the bottom pod plate.
I was glad i already had the X12 so i could compare what pieces were diferent.

Sounds like too much work and $ for an already expensive car, plus I don't like losing my wide body mounts. I'll stick with my current setup. Thanks

I agree, i wanted to see how it worked.
I can't say i recommended the change but i like the way it turned out.

A few pictures of my X10 for this season.

What parts of the X12 actually fit the X10 Link?
I mean what option parts fit or would make a better performance.
