This may sound stupid, but how wide is the tape slot? (I got an Exotek touring car chassis recently, and it's slots needed to be lengthened drastically (12mm, with standard battery tape 16mm), so I'm sorta sensitive to that right now )

23 mm

Something else cool with the chassis is the slotted servo mounts.
Any servo will easily fit this car.

I just picked up a couple Pro-Tek 1S packs and the 4mm bullet clears the shock, however, it is still a PITA to remove the battery. I did find it easier to do if you remove the top plate or pivot it out of the way.

The bullet tubes in the Reedy pack are further inboard than the Pro-Tek packs making it more difficult to plug in.

Default rollout

Hello all. New to 1/12 scale and was wanting to know what the formula is for Rollout. Also what's a standard diameter size for front and rear tires? One more question...our track is roughly 100'x60' technical layout, 13.5 Ballistic, blinky mode. Any gearing suggestions is appreciated. Thanks

Welcome to 12th scale, the most awesome class of all

I use gearchart.com for rollout, they have all the info and charts you need.

Tires size will vary depending on grip level, but 42mm front, 44mm rear is common.

I'll take a guess at around 75 to 80mm roll to start with that setup.
Check with the fast guys at your track to get the best info though.
There may be some ideal gearing/timing setup that will rock.

If you want to study up on setups and stuff, there is a large list of links and info HERE
Have fun.

Thanks for the input and info. Our indoor carpet season hasn't started yet so I'm trying to get a head start on setup before I start bugging the fast guys. Thanks again.

Well guys picked up my first 1/12 r5.1 with lipo chassis. Guys wanted to ask if any of you would be kind enough to post a base line carpet set-up. Thanks for the help.

question..

i picked up a used 5.1 with onpoint chassis. just got my savox 1250mg servo to put in, and the servo spline isnt centered in the car. is this going to cause a problem if i make one arm longer to compensate, or is there an adjustment i need to do? seems like the second set of servo mounting holes would be too small.

Dude that inline associated conversion looks amazing.

How is it working in comparison to normal? Indoor/Outdoor

What was the first things people noticed. Did tires change?

Is it the norm now?

Thanks

This is what I do and may help. Make sure all your electronics are wired and ready to go. Turn on transmitter and make sure all steering trim is set to 0. turn on car so steering servo is powered up. If it wasn't centered it will auto center at this point. while leaving all the electronics switched on I will then install the servo saver. It should be pretty close to centered. if not I will center with the steering trim adjustments on the radio. Unless something is seriously out of whack you shouldn't need to add very much trim to get things centered. The tie rods should be equal. I'm sure someone will post an even better way of doing it but so far this has worked for me. Good luck.

Pics and some info from first track day HERE

I wouldn't say it's the norm now, the inline lipo chassis design has only just been released onto the market.
We shall see perhaps in 6 months to a year if it catches on ?
