Yeah I can't wait to get there and meet everyone. I'm sure I'll be very confuzzuled with all the new names and trying to figure out who I've seen on RC Tech. I'll be the lost looking guy somewhere around Kling.

Default Thin Flex plates

What changes can I expect if I switch to the thin flex plates...typically run stock 17.5 on low-medium traction carpet, with a few bumps.

Thanks

It will handle the bumps a little better. You also will acheive more side bite with them. What I have found with my testing, you will get a little bit more double steer with these on compared to the thick. So be ready-

It is a form of push. When the car kinda does a wiggle through the corner. This is because there is not enough side load being applied to the front.

Ah, ok, I have DEFINITELY experienced that in my now sold RC12R5.
What is a common fix for double steer? Softer springs, and correct the camber?

Stiffer side spring and or thicker side dampening

Ok then, I am WAY off base. Hopefully I will be getting back into 12th scale later in the year, most likely with the BMI.

I was running on low traction asphalt that was fairly bumpy for a 12th scale, and was only getting frustrated trying to dial in my R5. Drove some T-bar cars, and checked out the BMI, and for most it seems they [T-bar drivers] set it and forget it, and be able to drive decently the next time out. Not my style, I like to tune, but it sure would make trying to get into the sweet spot easier without having to start fresh every time out.

the bmi performs better than a t-plate car in bumpy conditions. i can basically set it and forget it. no tweeking on the bmi, just general maintenance. jason can give you an asphalt setup that will dominate i dont run on asphalt. you wont be dissapointed.

sorry for the stupid question, but does the pod still have some flex even though the screws are touching, or does it completely lock it in place?
