You know those four screw holes in the bottom of the chassis by the battery tray? What are they for?

They are for the battery stops. If you use the front ones, the battery sits back. If you use the rear ones, the battery sits forward.

Just another tuning option, forward gives more steering.

Tonight was my maiden voyage with the 12R5.1. I'm pleased with the durability and handling of the car (I thoroughly tested both aspects of the vehicle tonight ). It seems to have a slight on power push. I'm running the box stock setup with two changes. First, I have the upper arm mounts at 5deg, second the car has gold springs instead of blue.

I'm running 17.5 4 cell, Jaco gray rear at 1.7 in dia, and Jaco purple at 1.6 in dia. Any suggestions as to gain a bit more on power steering?

Sorry man, Im not into biting guy's Lol... And yes i have some advice, Learn to Drive!!! Lol... And most importantly... Dont listen to Ron Webb!!!

Look on Associated site they have some dialed setups. dump the purples and go to lilacs or softer if that doesnt work go to angled servo setup.

Angled servo will make it push more. Keep it flat! Different tires, for sure. Try yellow rears with black fronts.
Don't be afraid to dope the fronts,3/4 is common with blacks.
Where is your battery? foward or back. We all run it back. Way more consistant.

Give more info on your setup!!!

I would say to kit extra front arms and steering blocks though I haven't broke anything yet. As for stores that keep stock Stormer hobbies, A Main keep a good stock of parts.

what is the smallest spur gear that can be fitted on the vehicle?

What is the largest pinion in combination with the smallest spur?

Trying to know what limitations are there so I can decide on gearing options.

Default Question

Hello, I am new to these forums, but not really to RC
I recently bought a 12r5.1 FT Kit and i am looking for a good brushless setup to run laps at our LHS Carpet oval.

Does the 1/12 scale use the 1/10 scale motor setup?
i was looking into a mamba Max 5700

Thanks!

Any other Newb 12r tips would be great!
