Thank you, does the kit come with all the sizes or do I need to order them?

Comes with them all I think. My full kit should be here this week to know. But it should be all of them. My past kits had them all.

Adri-13,
Thanks for your comments.

Has anyone else had issues with the front bearings having play on Jaco wheels?

Default Play in Jaco wheels

Dread,
I've noticed that as well. Started double-checking all my linkages and ball ends, narrowed it down to the bearings fitting VERY loose in the front wheels (Lilac). Such a sloppy fit, I'm going back to running Exceeds. Half the cost of Jaco and the bearings fit like they're supposed to

Interesting; odd problem.
I'm planning on getting an X12 when I get time to run again; I assume I can put other bearings on that will fit fine.

The problem is not with the bearing but the Jaco wheel. The hole for the bearing is too large. There is an easy fix. Take some old sticker/decal material and cut out a circle or square piece of the material a little larger than the hole in the wheel and stick it over the bearing hole. With a sharp knife, cut a "X" in the sticker/decal material that is covering the hole. Then press your bearings into the wheel and all slop will be removed. Jaco was supposed to have fixed this problem in their wheel mold but maybe they have not corrected this problem yet.

I bought the X12 and assembled it last week and did have some questions.

First off, it is a beautiful car (I'll post pictures soon); looks very nice with the Orion 1S ESC and VST motor. The in-line battery layout is nice in that it provides a lot of space for all the other components to be placed.

The very beginning of the build was rough; when I screwed in the caster mounts to the arms I stripped out the first 3 of 4 screws. Very tight into the plastic, went out and bought a high quality 2mm wrench, new screws, and the rest went clean.

My question is if anyone else has had trouble getting the centerline of the servo armature to line up on the centerline of the car?
I bought the Spektrum H5010 servo (looks like the same specs as the Futaba 9650), but the servo saver’s centerline is not down the center of the car. I would either have to have unequal length turnbuckles (a bad thing) or some awkward shimming of the servo to make it center. I haven’t played yet with flipping it around, and later tonight I’m going to put the calipers on the H5010 and the 9650 to see if the servo armature placements are different, but my eye said the 2 servo’s looked the same.

Also, I bought the Front Active Brace Set (Xray part # 372080) to have an adjustable front end, but the bar is WAY to short to fit across. Does the X12 have a different distance between the front arms than the XII ?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Plan on running it at Chino's TQ Raceway for it's inagural run on Sunday.

You should try to mount the servo so the servo saver is in the center of the chassis, that may mean shimming different from side to side.

Yes the X12 is quite a bit wider than the original XII.
