that's cool. That's all you really need to do the conversion. Care to do a couple extra?

Let me see how it turns out. Tricky aluminum parts aren't my specialty. I'm looking for a "Dremel free" install. I'll let everyone know.

Ta daaa!! I still have to remount the servo, speddo, and re-scale the car.

I had to skim .005 off the outer chassis ridge. The button head screw on the underside of the rack gently rubbed. I think a small height adjustment and I'll have a truly dremmel free install. No cutting, no shimming, and zero extra slop. First run on the car is next Wednesday.


I should have some spares available this weekend.

Very nice. What is the weight of it? And how much clearance is given for tge center pulleys? Can I get a top view of both full clock turning angles please?

Overall throw seems the same. Clearance is hard to photo, but's the same as the plastic piece it replaced. All machined heights are pretty much what the molded part was. I'll get a weight when I finish running my couple extras tomorrow.

Yeah, just about 1mm. Weight came in at 5 grams. It's 6061 aluminum, I assume a factory part would be very close to the same.

That's neat! I wonder if it is possible to make a reversible version. You just swap around spacers and it goes left or the right side. You could make it even lighter by milling out the middle of the arm like the factory ones

Good job.

Good job.
thats what he made. Its a reversable one of the factory piece.

he is right though, maybe thinner miling and taking away the excess.

How much would you sell them for MC112b?

A lot of people get into the balancing act of there cars. Sometimes there's better options then what the designer did but if you fallow setup properly you will have no issues. I personally wanted my esc on the upper deck and not on the side for protection because I already lost a radio reciever due to a crash on that side. So everything is in line down the center and I just stiffin the left springs a tad more to help with the slight weight difference.
