What is the preferred body to use in stock? I am new to 12th scale and might possibly be getting one.

Thx Kave!
Would any one know all the PN's to make this conversion? Is it really only 2 parts that I would need? Top and lower pod plates?

What motor are you guys using with the short version?
Ive just gone from Xti transverse to inline and now to altered ego and the altered ego seems to be the easiest to drive. I'm running 10.5 so is that too much for the short/short?

Thanks

I have run an Altered Ego in the 'super short' version, with the standard Xti pod plate and the Altered Ego transverse chassis. It was a bit of an experiment to see how much of the weight of the car I could get directly in the center, at the pivot, so it would act less unsprung.

The car ran well on my local track in 17.5. We had low to medium-low traction on carpet. As for how it felt, with the same basic setup as my Gen-XL it was a hair more edgy, seeming to want to rotate harder on turn-in.

I still want to try a 'limo 1/12 car.' A full-length Xti chassis with a long Altered Ego pod. Might be the ticket at the IIC in October if the rug turns to fly paper again!

Let me be more clear than my earlier post. The conversion kit, p/n 3226, has ALL of the parts needed to convert the car from Xti to Altered Ego. Repeating, ALL OF THE PARTS. This includes ALL of the Links and Graphite Parts. The Graphite Parts include the chassis plate, rear lower pod, rear upper pod, battery brace and antenna mount. The battery brace is for transverse battery mounting since you already have the one for inline battery mounting.

If you are trying to build other combinations of the Altered Ego car, please say which one. The one described above converts the Xti to the Xti Altered Ego. Good luck.

If your talking about the conversion, I didn't get it either. Life shouldn't be this complicated to run this great car. I needed the 3226 kit and 3211 kit to do the transverse Altered Ego setup as I understood it, even with this, it was confusing and online documentation is non-existant.

I just gave in and brought the complete Altered Ego kit, CRC3212 and sold my regular Xti.

The Audi R8c would be the best one to use for stock. Some have used the Mohawk on low grip situations but the Audi seems to still be the best.

Thanks everyone for your response.

One more question. How far forward do you guys position your bodies or do you center it?

Use the pre marked holes on the R8.
