Have you thought about shaving some of the front to give it some flex like the yokomo? Yes I have an extra one just to rub it in Sorry

I really never felt it with steel screws cause I replaced it to tamiya aluminum during build. Compared to my Gen x the r5.1 is really light.

I'm converting my RC12R5 to R5.1 but there is one part I cannot find on the AE site.

The 16mm set screw for the side shock has part number 4689 in the manual but that part number doesn't exist on the AE site

Anybody got a clue where I can find this set screw ?

Thanks,
Erik

have you happened to weight your car? I thought mine was light too, but at a recent race, my car was weighted. It's just about 30g fat. Aside from cutting the car up, I just can't see where I can save any weight.

Actually it is the same as in the R5, just reuse the one you have.

I'm already running 16gauge wires, but you're right on the screws.

what esc and rcvr do you use, don't forget tire size? That will also make a difference in weight.

I am using an SR3100 and tekin RS. I run my tires very thin. Currently have 41mm in the rear and I forget the measurement of the front, but there is less foam on them than the rear.

The one from the R5 is 10mm and the one from the R5.1 is 16mm since the upper pod plate is sitting higher on the R5.1 .

I could re-use that one but my actual problem is that part n 4689 (16mm set screw ) cannot be ordered or bought seperatly , i can find any R5 or R5.1 part on the AE website except this one ?

Just picked up a 12R5 used trying to get a good setup to run 17.5 Single Cell, any ideas. What foams do I need, gearing etc?
