This is the CRC Xti 1/12th Scale On Road Electric Pan Car Kit. Building on the winning heritage from the CRC multi-champion Gen-XL and Xi, the Xti (Transverse or Inline) from CRC elevates 1/12th scale racing to the next level offering many exciting features. The Xti features true inline battery configuration with a full size 1S IFMAR/ROAR battery pack. Unlike some of the off-center "longitudinal battery pack designs" that have popped up, CRC's true inline configuration yields total balance and symmetry. CRC's infinitely adjustable Slider Rear Pod is another exciting feature on the Xti. The Slider Pod is a full aluminum motor pod with infinitely adjustable rear ride height. The Xti continues with dual damper tube design and leads the way with the best-in-class rear damper, the CRC Encore shock.
The Xti had a very successful debut at the 2012 1/12th Scale World Championships. In its first outing, Marc Rheinard and Elliott Harper took the Xti to A-main podium finishes.
The Xti, features the CRC Slider pod for infinite ride height adjustments. No longer are you bound by a set insert or notch. If you want 3mm of ride height, loosen the 4 rear button heads, put the desired ride height spacer under the car, and then let the axle drop allowing the rear wheels to touch the ground. Then tighten the 4 button head screws.
This design is a spin off and improvement to the CRC X-Pod which was the first to bring the X brace type design to 1/12th scale racing (2006 with the Gen-X). This low-profile rear pod design is now mimicked by many of manufactures. With the Xti, CRC takes another leap forward with the Slider Pods and X brace design.
The Xti can "transform" from inline to transverse. The Xti car is cross-pack ready with provisions to mount the battery across the back much like the Gen-Xi. In the transverse configuration, the Xti has all the adjustability of the Xi with over .5 inches of battery movement, allowing you to greatly adjust the characteristics of the car. With the transverse configuration, you can mount the servo in the reverse position, or the traditional position behind the front end. There are mounting points for both servo positions and different servo types. In both configurations (the "I" inline and the "T" transverse), the Xti also has multiple shock locations for altering the weight transfer points. The optional transverse configuration kit (CLN3211) comes complete with all the parts necessary to transform the Xti from inline to cross pack.
