I'm considering getting a 12th scale. Since I like my X10LE so much I want to stay with CRC. How does the Xi compare to the XL?

I dont know the very fine differences, but i know one is lipo ready, the other isnt. I just got the Xi. I learned my lesson on buying used cars. sooo from now on im just buying new and because of crc im going to start racing pro 10.

From what I read on the Stormer site the XL is lipo ready or did I read it wrong?

Both are Lipo ready. But you can run your battery inline with the center of the car with the Xi

I have two X-10 LE's and one Xi. Batteries and electronics are down the center as much as possible.

The rear pods on all three cars (less the axle assemblies) and the front ends are basically the same and the carpet version of one X-10 uses the Xi's 1/12th scale kingpins and springs. Great having so many other interchangeable parts (shocks, side tubes, side links, hardware, etc.) between my CRC cars.

Just getting back into 1/12th myself; so, others should have comments about the Xi's performance.

Parts interchange ability is my main reason for staying with the CRC product.

The advantages of the Xi are;
-Longer chassis (better for lipos since the cars are lighter)
-Battery can be run down the middle or in more horizontal positions
-New CRC shorty pack can be used
-Runs the servo flat by default (XL runs an angled servo which eliminates bump steer)
-Comes with new all plastic steering blocks and smaller diameter axles
-Chassis is slightly different in the battery area (slightly stiffer than XL)
-Has a hole drilled behind servo so you can run an extra long shock. (can improve steering)

Good car i would go with the Xi over the XL.

To me your Xi 17.5 car looked very good. Stable, nice steering

Me too. Nice list of advantages!

My original body on the Xi is getting a bit banged up so it was time to paint up another one. I couldn't come up with a paint scheme so I did something similar to the factory car:



Hopefully the new body won't slow the car down since I set fast lap of the evening and won both heats and the main last night.

Sexy body, how is the handling on it?

I can't directly compare to other bodies since it's the only one I've had on the Xi but I have absolutely zero complaints. It seems to be very well balanced with plenty of steering and no tendency to lose the rear end. The recent fast lap for 13.5 blinky at the track is a 10.832 which I ran Friday night with 11.0x being a more normal fast lap. My favorite part about the car is that I can still click off 11.1x laps at the 7 minute mark...though not consistently yet.
