Thanks for that.

Yep, I was looking for something around 2 months ago, but never found anything.
I ended up buying a second kit for spares on top of a whole heap of loose bits and pieces.

Some of the parts in the front end i found were really hard to get.

Although when i originally looked i was actually on the official associated site looking at that page.

Just incase anybody was wondering if I had solve the issue with my 12r5 that I posted a few weeks ago, I have. It ended up being that the chassis had a weird bow or ended up being warped. So I finally replaced it with a new chassis and it works better now.

As for the brace. . .

I bought it for peace of mind. I bent the standoffs more than once and didn't always catch it when they were bent. Going to Vegas, knowing I didn't have to worry about that piece was worth the $25. I've never felt ANY difference with the brace in terms of performance. Purely a durability upgrade for me.

Default 12r5 .1

Does this chassis have to be checked for tweak or does the pivot ball chassis eliminate this?

Also are there any positives to a t-bar chassis. s120 etc?

That what I'm talking about! With all the knowledge AE has they can easily design upgrades like this. I'm sure somewhere here in the US sell the brace so I'll let you know.

I looked ALL OVER and never found anyone that had it ANYWHERE besides the HK shop mentioned above. Let us know if you do find it in the US!

No you'll need to tweak all the 1:12 chassis. The only moment when you don't have to tweak is when you're running t-Bar with a fixed front block (don't know the English name). Besides that, you always need to tweak you're 1:!2 scale, no matter what type of car, T-Bar, Link, Both.....

Advantage of a T-bar: It drives smooth and easy, (maye to smooth?)
Disvantage: It can break, and isn't that durable as a Link car....

I like my 12R5.1 Links. Had a 12L4 before and it was just so smooth driving...

Best Regards

Robert

Small correction there Robert, even with a "zero-tweak block" you have to check the car for tweak. After a serieus race with or without crashes the car can be tweaked and therefore you need to check if the chassis is still straight. The only advantage of using a zero-tweak block is that if the car IS tweaked, you know that there is something wrong other than just a bruised T-bar.

And yes, if you get into a sidewall crash. That is killing for T-bars (and I am very experienced with that ;-) )
