what spring r u referring too all of them? ok i missed read.

ok xti was rf 174.9 lf 136.9 now is rf 169.4 lf 142.2 the rear was rr186.9 lr 205.3 now rr 208.7 lr 183.5


xi was rf 124.6 now 130.5 lf 171.4 now 165.9 rear was rr 228.6 now 229.8 lr 162.8 now 171.1.

that did not make any positive changes if anything it got worst

for what it's worth.......

i ran my xti in the inline configuration all week at vegas. after practice, i was seeded 5th for the qualifying runs, with a fast lap of 10.2 and was on pace with the rest of the a main guys. poor driving left me out in the cold after qualifying, and i have no one to blame but myself, landing in the 19th qualifying spot. however, a good run in the main had me miss out on bumping to the "A" by .8 second, and had i not been taken out by a back marker in said main, with 10 laps to go, there would have been one more XTI in the "A" at vegas.

the inline configuration has proven that it it can be fast in all classes, from stock to mod. the beauty of this car is it's ability to be changed into what you want it to be. around the pits, one of the sayings i over heard was, "this car is the "play dough" of 1/12, because you can mold it into any shape you like."

kudos to frank for thinking outside the box, and giving us a truly remarkable car that gives you the option of doing what YOU want to do, instead of settling for a "one size fits all" approach. so for all of you people who think that you know what a car is supposed to be, and feel like, pick one up, and go to town. for some, the inline configuration will not be better, for others it will. remember, it's not the arrow....its the indian.

look for big things from this car in races throughout the year.

Post setups soon!
Andrew,
what factor(s) motivated your decision to run 13.5 with a transverse battery and to run mod with the battery inline?

But now both heavy wheels are on the same side. You need to start moving the electronics around to try to balance the car. Are you running inline or crossways battery?

I'd guess that the scales heights are different and the heavy wheels are going to be dependent on which scales are where. Weigh the car, turn it 180 and weigh again. Now swap the scales left to right and weight a third time. For the fourth set of values turn the car again. If your scales are like mine you will see that the weights are all over the place. I'm certain that one of my scales is higher than the others and affecting the weights. For left/right balance I am now just using the Hudy balance tools and using the scales only for front/rear weight bias until I can get them to read much more consistently.

i was thinking of pulling the rear pod and front tires and just try to balance the main chassis. any thoughts on that option?

The XTI should be pretty close as is. All the equipment is lined up along the center axis. If it's way off, you may have a problem with your scales alignment as linkless said. You might try borrowing a car that is in balance from someone and see how it checks on your scales. If they are not level and at the same exact height, they will be off.

You guys are trying too hard with high end equipment to achieve balance. I will take some pic's in the morning showing something really simple. You will absolutely drive yourself crazy with scales.

I wanted to try the car both ways, see what it did, I figured modified would tell me if the car is good inline, and it did just that! I thought the inline car drove awesome. I rant 13.5 car transverse and what I noticed between the two cars is that my modified car was a little bit more responsive through the corners, now at home I will be changing my 13.5 car to inline as well!
