Hmm, I don't see the mounting holes in the main chassis required to mount the Xti upper plate... is there a special option servo plate with shock extension or something?

Does anybody know where to find a Black-Art conversion for Xti? Or at least the chassis?

So my current 17.5 open 1/12 ck25 likes to spin out at low speed if i get of the throttle to much. Does anyone have a general idea of what could be causing this issue and what do I need to do to correct this issue. I am currently running a locker at the rear. running a lola blackart body and kit set-up with 1.5 mm pod droop. long arm front-end conversion stock chassis.

Too much droop. Not enough roll center spacer on the front. Too much tweak preload or spring stiffness.

Sounds like a tire issue since the CK25 kit setup is usually very good for most conditions and using the long arms tends to forefit steering and make the car less aggressive. If you aren’t already glueing your front tire outer sidewalls, that’s a must on black carpet. Also letting the tire sauce sit on the fronts too long will cause oversteer.

Two other things to check are to first make sure your pod’s side to side action is nice and free, especially the adjustment of the center pivot ball so that there’s no bind and no “click” as described in the manual. And of course both front arms must also move freely...free enough so that when the front springs are removed, and you lift up each front arm, the assembly will drop just by its own weight.

.45 front crc springs, and .50 linar side springs with kit oil in shock and purple spring on the center. The car is great from center off, but going into a slow speed 180 the car will lift the outside wheel to much, ( that can be my trigger finger also), but outside of these issues my crc ck25 car feels amazing. Also does Mcfactory still make chassis? If so I would like to try one.
