CRC’s 2014 IFMAR World Championships winning Xti-WC 1/12th scale pan car kit will soon become available for the public. Building on the winning heritage from the multi-champion Xti and Xti-Altered Ego cars, the World Champion edition features a new chassis and a front sub frame U-plate as well as minor geometry tweaks to allow both stock and modified racing right out of the package. The main feature of the new design is the front sub frame that uses six attachment points rather than four. The “double decker” design coupled with the increased mounting positions results in a much more rigid front end, however, the user can remove one set of mounting points to adjust the front flex of the chassis.
The front arms have locating lugs for the U-plate that let the parts snap in place for a straight and rigid alignment even in the harshest of racing conditions. With the arm bolted into a sub frame that sits on the chassis, the U-plate design uses less spacing to raise the arm resulting in less flex and more consistency while optional small, colour-coded, mylar spacers allow to adjust for tire wear and precision ride-height adjustment. Other features include the ability to run both inline and transverse battery positions, the rear end is built using CRC’s Slider rear pod for step-less height adjustment and it also works with CRC’s soon available motor spacers to adjust side balance with the motor. The kit will become available by the beginning of December.
