All done gonna run it next week at indoor track high grip carpet. Not familiar with block set up looking for lowest roll center positions in rear. Which blocks should I order to go along with spacers?

There isn't an option to run them in a low position like the XRAY -.75mm. We do offer 1mm and 1.5mm one-piece shims or you can use round shims. I always suggest ordering 3 of each long block so that the fronts pins can be ran straight and the front and rear track width can be ran the same as well.

Which blocks did your kit come with? When you have 3 of each long block you can achieve the same width as the kit stock front width and if you run 2.25mm (1.5mm + .75mm). The -.75mm split blocks in the rear allows you to run the Hagberg's toe mod.

Has anyone cut the servo nub off and used only the inside servo mount and "Shoe-Goo" to secure the servo ? If so, any regrets ? If no, any thoughts to share ?

I did this on my '11 chassis while drilling a new hole for the inner servo mount, it has held up to some bad crashes without issue.

The xr3 kit comes with B , C , D , and B/XB ( according to the website )
B and C in the front, and XB/B and D in the rear.

To get to the Xray kit front width ( 1.5mm with no sweep ) what is used ?

Two C's ? Two D's or Two E's ? or Two F's ?

are the steps between letters .5mm ? or ???

Thanks

Thanks, only issue is, the exotek '12 chassis is VERY narrow, so it appears there isn't much surface area for the glue to grab to.

I've seen various cars running it, seems no one wants the nub, even some home made narrow chassis It's not impossible to break loose, but it takes alot. People who just CA the edges of the servo too the chassis seem to have them break loose more often.
