That will work, looks good.
May want to put the battery in the front position though.

Is that done by just moving those battery stops to the back?
I'm guessing that weight distribution is the reason?
Going to use a Novak system with 1cell lipo

I don't see any 1cell lipo on hobbyking for 12scale. Am I missing them or do I have to go with stuff like reedy packs?
Really don't want to spend 50-60 bucks on a 1cell lipo

When the servo is not centerd, the steeringlinks are not an equal lengt, as a result the car will not have the same feeling both left and right, and will also not have the same amount of steering. I think it's it should be centred. I tape my servo's in with double sided tape (TOP or MuchMore)

Has anyone drilled a new left servo mount hole and been successful in countersinking in? I know where I need my hole and it will be easy to drill, I just want it countersunk nicely. How should I do it?

Hi guys,

Loving my R5.1 but hating the shocks on that thing!!
The center shock is such a ball ache trying to getting air free and then after a few runs air it needs a rebuild. Now I have started from fresh with new rebuild kits and used green slime on the seals. I have made sure that the o-ring is in and level before putting the end on.

Now is there anyway that this can be stopped?
Has anyone tried any other center shocks on the car, I have heard the hotbodies shock is meant to be really good?

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chriss!

1st hot bodies shock is very nice but it take air inside too
and for me is a little flustrate to rebuild it ... but one done, it stay for some
runs

2nd I back to ae shock and I don't get "air problem", before put 2nd end,
I always try fit o-ring by nut driver or something, I push it inside,
some oil go away, and then I put end on body, for me no problem.

But I always rebuild shock before ride, especially when I drive 1 time per month ....

Wish you good luck!

There is a small tool that you can find in the drill section of a hardware store, it is call a countersink bit. Chuck that into your drill press, set the plunge and there you go.

I'm using the Hot Bodies shock in my 12R5.1 because I had a hard time with the AE shock cap cross threading and popping off in a race causing the chassis to drag on the ground. After adding up the cost of all the AE parts I figured why not try the HB shock even though it cost twice as much.

The HB shock builds just like any Touring Car shock and uses a bladder to provide an air chamber rather than mixing the air in the fluid to make an emulsion shock like AE.

On the other hand, my center shock in my WGT 10R5 works perfectly and has no problems. I think the original shock that came with my 12R was machined incorrectly which was why the caps kept popping off.
