Does anybody have a picture of their R5 with a Tekin RS installed in it? If so could you please post it. I want to see how you all have it installed. Thanks to those that do post a pic.

Hey guys,

Just picked up and built my first 1/12 car, the RC12R5.1. Ive got experience in TC and was wondering if someone can explain to me how to:

A) Properly mount the electronics in a balanced manner. (I have some XRAY balancing posts if that helps) Should I mount it just like I do in TC? Basically I try to achieve a balance side-to-side on a flat surface.

and...

B) Set ride height, droop, and tweak with this pan-car. I see that the center shock has a collar, but am unsure about how that relates to the setting of the rest of the car. The set-screws on top of the side springs obviously set tweak, right?

Also, when I threaded those set-screws into the carbon fiber rear brace, i noticed that one side didn't quite thread in perfectly straight. Its at an ever-so-slight angle. Is that going to be a problem?? Hopefully not, or i'll need a new crossbrace...

Welcome to the 1/12 world! Check out this site: http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/asso...tedRC12R5.html

On the Carbon brace area. Yes mind is at a slight angle too. I haven't had any handling issue with it.

it saddle pack just might fit, but it would be illegal. in general the class races with a sensored motor and 4 cell (4.8v nominal) which is getting replaced very quickly by 1s lipo (3.7v nominal)

i dont think we care much about the class racing.. a bunch of us are just getting into it. 1c with the booster seems like a pain

I dont think the 12R5.1 needs a saddle pack, or would most 2S be too tall to fit under the shock.

Yes, most would be too tall or too long unless you get the 1500mah 10C ones. You don't want the battery to straddle the links or impede the pod.
