Xti 12th Scale car kit
The Xti – Super sleek, ultra-lightweight inline 1:12th car from CRC. The car debuted at the 2012 World Championships in Holland with both cars entered making the A-final.
Building on the winning heritage from the multi-Champion Gen-XL and Xi, the new Xti (Transverse or Inline) from CRC elevates 1:12th scale racing to the next level offering new and 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. Also new on the Xti, CRC’s infinitely adjustable Slider Rear Pod. The Slider Pod is a full aluminum motor pod with infinitely adjustable rear ride height. The Xti continues with our dual damper tube design and leads the way with the best-in-class rear damper, the CRC Encore shock.
New Slider pods
The new Xti had a very successful debut at the 1:12th World Championships. In it’s first outing, Marc Rheinard and Elliott Harper took the Xti to A-main podium finishes. Shown below are pictures courtesy of Red RC of the prototype Xti at the race in Holland. Shown with the optional diffuser, and yes, the car comes ready for the diffuser.
The new 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″ 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 comes complete with all the parts necessary to transform the Xti from inline to cross pack. Adjustability on a proven platform. Simple.
The Xti is a great car at a great price, retaining the $199.99 street price in hobby stores and online at teamcrc.com. Not a conversion or half of a car, this is a full racing car kit for less than $200. With Horizon Hobby distributing Calandra Racing Concepts and our vast dealer network, parts are easy to find and very affordable. The Xti is will be available mid September 2012.
