Quote:
The RC12R5 chassis has been optimized for 1S LiPo batteries, with the following additional enhancements:

Inline battery positioning generates a lower polar moment of inertia for smoother mid-corner steering in high traction conditions
Lengthened wheel base for added stability
Front bulkhead mounting position widened to give more options for upper control arm length and added adjustability for multiple track and motor conditions
Updated rear upper pod geometry increases leverage on center shock to help compensate for the lighter minimum overall chassis mass when using LiPo batteries
Stronger blue aluminum chassis braces
Thicker 3mm rear chassis brace gives extra support for rear body posts ad side springs

Is this conversion better suit for high traction surface?

Yesterday I got an email from Stormer that the kit is in stock. By the time I got around to ordering one they were sold out that afternoon.

Found one at Ampdraw for a few dollars less, Yay!! Almost $16 less than Tower.

I'm not sure if it will make a huge difference in the car but I figured that I might as well get the kit so when I rebuild the car the new parts will go on. New is always nice to have.

Thanks, good to know the front is wider. I had widened my 5.1 by 2mm so I guess I don't need those spacers in there when I rebuild the car with the Lipo conversion.
