Hey guys I see the 12R5.1 comes with an airtronics servo saver. But LHS says that airtronics doesn't make a 12th scale stearing servo and the one supplied doesn't fit futaba is this true. And the futaba servo has ears on the bottom and front. Should you cut off the bottoms ones and use the supplied bulk head mounts? Sorry if I am using the wrong name.

I guess your LHS doesn't like Airtronics but the 94761Z should work. The Futaba 9650 does work and they are both the same price $60. Futaba splines are 25 and Airtronics are 23. BTW Associated makes a servo saver from 23, 24 and 25 spline servos.

Yes you need to cut off the surface mount tabs from either servo.

Thanks for the info and fast response. Much appreciated. I picked up the futaba but they are out of the servo savers. And now I feel more confident cutting off the surface mounts. Thank you.

Hey fella's, stupid question, what size is the driver that you use for the top of the pivot balls, I'm using the hex key that came with the kit but I want to get a driver replacement.

Yah, I just got home and checked.

Also get a good 2mm since most of the screws use that size. (5/64" is the same as 2mm).

Sorry for the stupid Questions but I am pritty new to the hobbie and brand new to 12th scale. But do some of the 12 scale bodys fit the 12R5.1 better then some of the others. I see the LHS has a couple of different ones but none of them are AE. Thanks

Since AE really doesn't make a body I doubt that you will find one. There are lots of choices from Parma, Protoform, Black Art, CRC and others. Protoforms new AMR body fits nicely and is a bit wider on top to accomodate the extra wires of brushless systems but is very thin.

Some of the bodies are good for mod and others for stock. There are versions of Audi GTPs and generics. Open or closed cockpits, your choice.

Go to Parma's, Protoform's or CRC's site to learn more.

BTW some of the racing bodies are very thin to save weight, those will tear easily as you learn to stay off the pipes.
