I am running a 125 and it is perfect length. I 150 is the safe bet, but when I use it I have floppy left overs.I have an RS with the sensor port on the left edge of the chassis

I'm pretty sure you want a 125 with that esc if you're going to mount it with the sensor port on the left side of the chassis and the wires on the inside.

What's that on your diff? Doesn't look like the standard kit issue.

88 tooth 64p with Kimbrough diff covers.
Keeps the dust and grit out when running on outdoor tracks.

Those are aftermarket dust covers...If you dont use too much diff lube, you wont need them.

They may keep some dust out, but I would rather not add the rotating weight...

Thanks for the response. Does anyone make 1-piece front ride height shims like the CRC or Roche ones? I assume those will not fit the 12R5/5.1?

Please dont take this the wrong way, but could I ask why?

Since the screws that bolt the front end to the car are threading into a aluminum bulkhead, it is so easy and quick to make ride height changes. This is one of the things I love about this car. No more wrist cramps like the old front end!

http://www.fibre-lyte.co.uk/ makes carbon fiber versions for the old 12l4 and the 12r5/5.1.

I just like the way with the Tamiyas' you can just loosen the screws and slide the shims under the suspension mounts to adjust the roll center. For the RC12R5 I'm not the most graceful when underscrewing the front bulkhead to add or take away ride height spacers. It would be nice to just loosen the screws and slide a one piece shim in.
