Just a different method of measuring. Xray measurements include the double-jointed part; others just measure the dogbone.

The XSquare driveshafts from rcmart are excellent. I would say better than the original; they've developed less slop over time, and have clips rather than grubscrews

The Racer is a very edgy shell. Type S has similar mid-corner steering but comes in more progressively, so definitely go back to Type S, or maybe even something more neutral like an IS200 or M410.

All correct (schuey blue foams for rears). Trim the row of lines (elongated spikes) off the outside edge of the rear tyres. All the quick guys seem to do this; I think it reduces grip-roll.

standard upgrades for outdoor are -0.75 hexes, 1.2r 1.3f roll bars, alloy steering bellcranks, and steel spool outdrives. None of it essential, car is good out of the box. But most team setups will...

Don't worry about the length of the link, those are just starting points and could well be inaccurate given the large changes to the rear suspension.

Start with 2deg negative camber all...

I'd go with the '19 at that price difference. Or wait for them to discount the '18 further! RcDisco had 35% off to shift them.

With the '19 car coming out the UK importer were clearing out the '18, so I picked one up for a steal.

Xray aren't like Apple. When the 19 comes out Xray won't come round and loosen all the bolts on your 18 to slow it down. It will still be just as good, and will be better than the 4x will ever be...

Be aware that the swift is only about 210mm wide at the front, which is too narrow for most 235mm cars and conversions, which are usually around 220mm at the front.

If you're at 10mm RH with 64mm tyres then to get down to 6mm RH you'll need to true them to 56mm (4mm off the radius so 8mm off the dia).

That doesn't leave a lot of foam left for outdoor running....

If tyres are totally open then foams will give best performance. Even a hard nitro foam is at least 1s a lap faster than the best rubber tyre.
