Some of the guys are running them in 13.5 and mod. Personally I don't like any in stock classes. 13.5 I usually run the h brace only

Could anybody who got their kit say what the surprise is?

Wondering because my kit won't be here until Monday and, though the kit itself will be a treat, I crazy to know what the surprise is. Anyway, I sure am looking forward to the new car!!!
I bet it's a pair of pink shoes.

I think your going to have try it all for yourself for mod this car does it all. As far as stock I'm leaning towards inline only now have tried it all inline feels best to me so far.

Serious impacts have a tendency to destroy the original, larger i.d. bearings, (or so I've heard). The 1/8th inch i.d. bearings should prove a bit more durable if your front wheel meets an immovable object.

I personally have the battery inline when running stock...... The car seems to handle better in the corners and it puts more weight up at the front end of the car, you also need a smaller speed controler with the standard 1s lipo or you speed controler will hang off the edge alittle bit.

Just out of curiosity.
How much more weight is on the front, as compared to the sideways battery ?
In percentage of bias Fr - Rr, or actual grams.
It would be nice to hear some numbers.

I have everything but the Xi inline parts. I come up with 41.4/58.6% with battery back & 42.4/57.4% battery fwd. I am balancing the car crosswise, measuring from the balance point to the axle, based on 203mm wheelbase, did the math.

Thank you Brian-the-bumper-guy

For comparison.
My R5 inline has 42% front, with as much weight towards the rear as possible.
Moving the weight forward it can go as high as 44% front, which is the same as the std 5.1 battery forward.

We should have a few Xi guys soon at our track.
Car looks good.

I dont honestly no... but I no that i had it sideways and i put it inline and it felt alot better..... You have all the extra weight in the front with the standard battery when its inline. Kenny Lambert and me both run the car with the standard 1s lipo inline running stock.
