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.
Good because i ordered 3 of those. And also im having a problem with then im running 17.5 boosted when my boost kicks in it: it likes to torque steer to the right. Do i just tighen the diff to stop it?

Wicked looking ride!!!

I have a clear one in the shop downstairs. After my semi-revolutionary set-up developments today, I hope to give it a try this Wednesday night.

If I get those ducks in a row, and get to test it, I'll report on my findings........

does anyone know if theres an option in the works for making the battery offset but inline with the chassis. there seems to be some extra holes for the inline battery/shock mount to make the battery offset. any thoughts?

If the Xi is winning the big races with the in-line configuration, why would they do offset?

i think it would be great. you could run a larger capacity batterys, yet still have room for your electronics, and have the bennifits of inline.
