Yeah I found that ironic too. And to add more to that, I use the medium and the thin crashes more than I use the heavy crash. But with the crack, the heavy crash now has a fast "swish" effect. It actually sounds good (as an effect cymbal :P).

And yeah I've had a few problems with tom postitioning. Because they're so big (and I'm so short :P) I have to have them low to the bass drum, and they tend to touch the lugs on the bass drum and when I played those toms, they would rattle against the lugs. So I rose them up a bit and that eliminated the rattling (and I actually found it a bit more comfortable).

@radeq, you're right. The sound is HUGE. :)
