Well you can shim out the wheels some to make up some of the difference. That is one thing nice about the Serpent front end is the threaded inserts are reversible so you can change the track width of the front at the chassis. That's one thing I never did get though...all these manufacturers all made their suspensions to bolt right on to the AE chassis but they didn't follow the same track width dimension.

Will be available in the UK through Action Model Centre

Here is a pic of the arbor. All that is left now is the pinch slot and clamping hole on the main body. In the pic you can see the 2 adapters that are threaded onto the set screw so you can cut 1/10th pan rear tires and TC tires. The the 1/12th front and rear along with 1/10th pan car fronts are done without the need of an adapter.


And yes wim, i am making an adapter for the wheel you sent me to fit this arbor

Default Corner Exit.

Jason,

On carpet...I'm told my entry and mid corner speed is good, but coming out of the corners the car is slow (push). 10* blocks arm is shimmed in the middle. Tyre dia. 41.58mm/1.637", Parma 8 w/cut outs.

2 shims to the rear on the front end for a total of 6 degrees of caster will fix that

The DB12RR was dialed today! The driver was not...LOL. On the laps I was driving good I could close on the leaders...but had way too many brain fades and would just barely clip a dot sending me sailing. Come to think about it my eye glasses prescription is over 3 years old so maybe I just need new glasses.
