Not mine, but thought someone might be interested. I'd get it, but getting parts would be hard in my area.

Just changed the dampers over to TRF. But instead of doing the normal full size dampers, I just swapped out cylinders, pistions, seals and bladders from a 54000 mini TRF set I had on the backup mini.

Interestingly, the play that everyone has in the piston doesn't come from to large of a gap from the piston to the cylinder but from the small plastic seal in the bottom cap (the very last one). The TRFs still had play if I was using the 3 racing plastic part there, but if I swapped over to the TRF version the play went away.

With no O ring below the piston in the TRF they are exactly the same size as the standard 3 racing dampers. Doing it this way also means you don't have to get the +4 towers or different springs if you've already bought 3 racing ones.

So far the TRFs feel a bit better on the car, I'll see how they perform over the weekend on track.

That is called the piston shaft guide.
And yes the 3racing guides are loose.
I have build my 3racing shocks with different parts so the fitment would be better.
I used the TRF parts and the Kyosho X-O-rings in the shocks.
Buttersmooth and perfect adjustment and no rebuild all season.

Hi!

How do you think the servo is mounted?

It seems there's only one servo mount?

why? is it taped in as well?... seems to me only 1 mount would put a lot of stress on the servo case?

Looks great!

I really like this chassis.. What stops me from getting it is its servo mounting system.

What did the manual say about mounting the left side? Did it mention anything at all?

Thanks a bunch!

I believe the instructions direct you to use 1 inner servo mount, and servo tape under the servo. This is pretty common for pro level guys, but surprising 3Racing has not provided a more common system for average users.
Also DH is a very poor choice of letters, it has already got a new monicker in our area.

Does any one know if there are any "hidden" parts to do the XI to XI DH conversion? Apart from the obvious (suspension mounts, chassis, deck...). Going to order the parts from 3R tonight.

I'm looking to get back into TC racing, I like the price of this car but why do you like this car? Is it easy to drive and set up? How is the quality?

There's a few reasons I went the XI. Price is great, and the quality of the kit is right up there. Parts are cheap too, and I have great local parts support for the car, as well as 3Racing only charges me about $5 for a standard order of parts for shipping. For me in terms of parts support I only really had 4 choices for chassis. TC6, T3'xx, TOP, and the XI. I wanted to be a bit different, and the TOP was an older design, so I went the XI. Overall I'm happy with the car. I just need to learn to drive better

Just for fun, I've done the 90 deg servo rotation on a standard XI to match up to the DH. I have a new plan to try just one of the DH changes at a time to see how it effects the car.

It has taken about 10g out of the car to do it, and the rotation would let you run a full size servo if you wanted. In my case I decided to rotate my receiver as well, which moved more of the weight inline (slightly) but importantly gave me a space to add chassis weights to to bring the weight up right in the middle of the car.
