so close to getting this car running.
Got the servo and receiver yesterday, will install this week ...won't be able to race it this weekend (which was my goal) ...but that is fine, i'll get some practice in before the next race.

The 9650 might be a bit small for this application. I believe that's more of a 12th scale servo. You want a low profile servo like a Futaba S9551 or KO Propo RSxone10 Response. With these cars compared to 12th scale, you are moving and trying to hold a much bigger, heavier tire.
-if you opt for the Futaba S9551 I have a code at Tower for $79, and another for $10 off, which would make it $69 and free shipping. ...PM me.
(I just got that servo ...have always had good results w/ Futaba).

I like the transverse setup for both low and high traction. I tune with different front tires and minor changes to spring/alignment depending on traction. I have seen guys be incredibly fast in either battery configuration.

Just out of curiosity has anyone tried the 2.0mm chassis and rear pod yet?

Just been looking around and they aren't cheap!

I'm planning to use it on the medium grip asphalt setup.

Thanks.

I run low grip and medium grip asphalt and the kit carbon chassis is ok. I haven't run the 2mm chassis but can't see the need atm. The X1 seems to generate enough tire temp even on the cold days (australian cold) we have had so far.

As for spares I bought some but haven't needed anything yet. If you don't hit things too hard then the car will hold up well. If you hit things hard then your going to need spares In which case the plastic parts like steering knuckles, links centre chassis parts would be the most likely to break.

I've stripped one spur and broken two front arms. We have a sweeper at the end of the straight away and if you clip the pipe you end up flipping in to the big red wall. It was a wide ass open crash when the arms broke...

This car is incredibly durable. I was testing different braking points today at track I never drove on before and kissed the boards a few times. All she did was bounce off and kept going. I've come to really appreciate the tamiya front bumper too. lol

brought my X1 out to the track today for some practice and to get it dialed in.

I feel it is mostly there.
The diff' is the only thing I had to really keep adjusting. Too tight and the rear wants to swing out, too loose and you lose power ...I found a nice middle ground. I was at an indoor track, so sounds echo a bit, ...the car is super quite. Yet around corners when the diff is being spun there is a noticeable sound made. Kind of a whinning sound ...is this normal? I am used to TC which are silent (probably because the diff's are closed).

Also, taking tight turns you really have to slow down, -not like a TC. Your turn radius is reduced greatly when at higher speeds. ...just something I have to get a little used to.

Love the car though, once the tires warm up it really sticks to the ground nicely.

eRC1,

I see you went to Delta. Was it hot in the building? Anyways, its a pancar and it will make a whirring sound from the pinion and spur but it should not be too loud. Normal. As far as corner speed,if there is a bunch of traction on that track, your car should turn very well. Sounds like a setup issue. Easily remedied. Try a bit more drag brake also. Maybe our paths will cross at the track at some point. Thanks again on the 9551 deal.


John
