The Exotek is a stiffer carbon than the Xray. The top deck is what seems to generate the most flex. If you've got a spare one kicking, try getting the dremel to it!

Sadly I don't have a spare so I don't want to tamper with it just yet.
Already have a 1.6mm on back order.

The Exotek is 2.3mm compared with Xray's 2.5mm

I also started with middle hole front links and went to shorter, which helped.

Default Shock spacing

Hey,

Could someone please explain the different handling characteristics between adding a 1mm spacer between the front shock and tower and also adding a 1mm spacer between the front shock and tower but also running a 1mm spacer at the bottom on the wishbone?

I know both of these changes calm the front end down but im assuming in different ways?

Changing arm sweep and toe do affect each other. I've yet to notice any difference between 0 and a little bit of arm sweep.

What he said: Servo Wire Crimping Tool But they are out of stock, so give them a call to know when they can get it in.
