I put cabinet door bumpers on the bottom, so it would move side to side.

AMR 12. handles well, plenty of room, and looks sweet. Not to mention it is easier to paint than most allowing paint into crevices easier.

To those saying it will slide notice that he is using a Reedy pack, which has the ridges/bumps on the bottom. Although I agree that the rubber ring system has not proven reliable to date for some.

What kind of servo are you using? If it is a KO 951 I need help finding out what size the screw is that screws in the servo saver and what length you are using cause the the one that came with mine is to short when using kimbrough servo saver. Thx and sweet set up

Default 12R5.1 wonderful thing!

Hi!

I can only write one word about 12R5.1-> wonderful!

I build car before race, set it on digital caliper, put on track and
it was wonderful for me :-)

I switch from 12L4 (with lot of upgrades) to 12R5.1 and with 12R5.1 I pimp my ride!



my setup: http://www.rc-setups.com/setups/256/edit/
Regards!

Are you guys placing your lipo's farther forward than the battery locaters set it? Almost to where it touches center shock mount. And is it giving good results? Thanks

The new Parma EE1 is awesome! Very stable and lots of steering. Kind of a combination of the Protoform and the Black Art. Ran it last weekend and loved it!

I've run the SM with my AE cars, not sure about the PN though. You may run out of shaft or threads with the wrong part however. At one point I had a bad diff and couldn't get it right untill I replaced the thrust bearing. After that I left the SM out and found I didn't think it was necessary or even really helpful. It kinda changed overnight, but ever since then I have just run the diff stock in my cars and it has been awesome. I think I have only replaced about 3 bearings in 3pan cars in the last 6 months of weekly indoor carpet racing.

I am a big believer in keeping things as simple as possible. Complexity is many times just one more thing that could go wrong and ruin a run. Built right, cheapy steel balls with standard unsanded $2 steel rings and $1 bearings will build as smooth as any fancy sanded/carbide/thrust built diff IMHO.

What about the nut drivers?

11/32nd" for the diff nut and......

Thanks,

You will also need a 3mm for the pivot balls.
