I have them, and they work really, really well. It makes changing the front ride a snap. You'll still have to use the washers, but not having to remove the screws to change the ride height is so much nicer than the alternative.

I just stack them to get the height I want. Sometimes you may have to add a washer to hit the ideal height. Just remember that each shim is .635mm.

That's exactly what I have been finding in my testing also. The steering is more consistent/predictable and the car is smoother around the track. It was like this on my initial back to back test when I transferred everything over to this chassis plate, and it continues to show these characteristics when I compare it on a back to back run with my "race" car that has the stock chassis. Previously my race car was slightly smoother than my club car, but now the my club car is the one that is noticeably smoother. I need to get another chassis plate from On-Point for my race car, I like it that much.

Thanks Guys,
I got the Manutechs for myself and a fellow associated racer. They look great and I am looking forward to making front ride height changes in seconds.
Thanks and God Bless

Mostly you just have to deal with the heavier batteries. So stiffer center spring and heavier dampening.
Sorry, unrelated, but do any of associated drivers have pictures of how they placed their electronics, and do any of them use Tekin esc ( I'm guessing only LRP).. PLease post if available. OR if any body else is willing to post pics, Please put them up.

Thanks

For anyone looking for a rear body mount brace to replace the 2 small posts that come stock on the RC12R5 or RC10R5, I have a few available at teamtamale.com.

These pieces are works of art. Not to mention I haven't eve had a piece of Larry's work bend or break. I wish all my aluminum pieces were made of this!

I think Robert B. was looking for one of these braces. Bring one to the track next time we race.

Do you guys find most of you are underweight(Roar 730grams)?

I weighed mine all up this weekend and am sitting at 704grams. I made sure to tare and 0 out the scale, but after a few tries I kept getting the same results.

Where would or where do most of you add weight? The car was dialed and on rails, so I'll have to mess around with weight placement to keep the same feel I hope.

Yeah... 680 grams here.

You can put the weight on "3" places I think,

- Around the battery where all the weight was removed with going to Lipo.
- Around the antenna to have the smalles "set-up change" (the car will not drive that different)
- Around the front suspension to make the car easyer to drive.
