I just put my IIC Setup on the xray web page today as well

3.5 front springs and 1,0 camber.

I have tested a bit further - se "version 2" setup on XRAY - Ok, but it was on nearly worn out rear tires. I has a tendency to overturn midturn and out of turns.

Have on new tyres (42/44.5) tried the same set-up but with the soft silver sidesprings, and it worked ok also - no significant changes in the cars behaviour.

Have today tried your frontend (with 5 active caster and 2 mm shim in front and 1+0.5 in back) and 1 degree castor (tires wear flat). Miss a bit of initial turn in, but way better and more controlabel mid turn and out of turns. Overall also a bit more stable and very easy to drive. Overall a bit slower than with the more agressive frontend set-up.

Will on tuesday try with 10k (green tube sponge) in tubes, gold centerspring and sidesprings and see what happens. Also play a little with sidespring load to se how it affect the initial turn in in corners ... and perhaps get the missing amount of turn in that way

Kind regards; Jens

PS. Almost everyone else drive 30k or 40k in tubes and sidespring/centerspring to the hard side at my track - all drive dbPink front and Pink rear - in their cars /Top, BMI Copperhead and Serpent LT).

Is the diff and Axle, the same as the X11, I was going to grab one of these as a spares car. It's costing me $100 so I thought it'd be worth it.

Yes all those parts are the exact same as the XII.

Is anyone using the new Spring Steel rear axle yet? Any comments on how it compares to the graphite axles in regards to true-ness, weight, etc?

It's getting time to replace my 12L3 / Speedzone saddle pack combo;
For a variety of reasons, the X12 is looking interesting.

I've gone through the manual and have some questions:
1) Are the rear ride height adjustments standard (AE/CRC) or unique to X-Ray?
2) Which front strings come with the kit? The manual lists which come in the kit for the shock and side springs, but doesn't indicate which of the 4 options (gold, silver, black, and/or grey) the kit has in the front.
3) How much pinion range does the motor mount have? The slots look really small, as if not much range. For example: would it handle a pinion range of 15 teeth (64p)?

Thanks.

I'm thinking about getting into 1/12 scale racing and i like the Xray a lot but the kit chassisplate is it suitable for lipo use or do i need to buy another lipo chassis?
And is it a 64 or a 48 pitch for spur/pinion?

Kind regards

2) Which front strings come with the kit? The manual lists which come in the kit for the shock and side springs, but doesn't indicate which of the 4 options (gold, silver, black, and/or grey) the kit has in the front. Gold comes in the kit. Its a .019 spring so its in between AE 18 and 20's.
3) How much pinion range does the motor mount have? The slots look really small, as if not much range. For example: would it handle a pinion range of 15 teeth (64p)?It has plenty of adjustment. I dont know xact number but it has not been an issue in any class Ran. I would guess at least 10 teeth.

Thanks.

Its 100% Lipo ready. Nothing else needed! 64 pitch 96 tooth is what comes with it.
