Is anyone else have problems with the side links (#3280) breaking?
Over the last 2 weeks I've broken 6 of them. They've been breaking where they attach to the ball stud and they've been breaking as a pair. Looks like the plastic is very hard and brittle. I bought some Lunsford turnbuckles and ballcups and installed them as a quick fix-seems to work so far.

I think links from a 12r5 should work.

Razoo,

Did your side links pivot freely on the ball studs?

Are you running a foam front bumper?

What kinds of impacts are you having that breaks them?

I always make sure the links move freely and I'm using a full front bumper.
The impacts are very minor. The guys racing with me couldn't believe the links break so easily. Whats wierd is that they always break in pairs. The plastic looks and feels very brittle.

one of the racers at our club has been breaking them. but that is from full speed hammerings into the solid boards. I have softened them slightly by boiling but still any hard impacts and they are the first to take the heat

I suggest that you call John Firsching at CRC to check if he has any input.

I just got my XI. As it sometimes takes a while to get spares in here in Germany I wonder what spares I should stock?

I usually keep spares of all the plastic front end parts, side links and the carbon rear pod parts. It's also not a bad idea to stock extra plastic shock parts, not because they break often but if you take the shock off often it can wear out and create slop.

Another option, if parts are hard to get, is to get another kit and just keep it for spare parts.

I've just picked up an XTI, and have some questions. I've been reading the thread, but a little detail is missing for me. For those of you that have run both the inline and transverse in the Altered chasis, what was the difference you felt with the car? I am going to be running 13.5 blinky with this car. I've got the altered kit, but didn't realize it needs a couple of things to make the change to transverse. Is it just the side links and tweak plate?

Thanks for your responses,

Hi guys, please, someone know how much weight the XTI?
In brasilian championship the minimal weight is 800g and i think this new chassis is lighter than transversal battery model.

Thanks!

800 grams is really high. My CRC Xi weighs 736 race ready and my Xti is 724 ready to go. Both cars have aluminum screws installed throughout most of the car. Steel screws would add about 10-15 grams.

Got my self a used xi for one munth ago. Enterd my first race yesterday and my goal was to not finish last. I made the A-main. The car was great in the last qualifying round. But when the grip got alot more in the finals the car was realy hard to drive. Rear end was flipping round the corners and in a fast full power corner it suddenly oversteerd a lot in the middle of the corner with made the car to hit the curbs hard. It was a surprice everytime. Tiers front and rear was in good condition.

Anyone have a hi grip steup?

Is the car "flipping" or oversteering (rear end is loose)?
