When you installed the center footbal pivot, did you make sure the pod was absolutely free of bind ?

Also, if you have decent grip carpet, 44mm front is quite large, what compound tires to you have on there ?

For comparison.

Was just looking at your wiring in this pic... are you running a booster with this setup? Or are you just using the LRP's internal booster?

Btw, wiring looks incredible!

traitor, make sure the motor wires have plenty of clearance on the pod.
They look fairly tight in this pic ?

The inline conversion instructions seem to call for 2x 2mm spacers under the center shock ballstud and only 1x 2mm spacer under the set-screw mounted pivot ball for the side shock.

I see in the above pic there is only 1x 2mm spacer under the center shock ballstud.

Is this what most people are running? What about the side shock? How many spacer in general are you guys using?

I just noticed that in the instructions aswell for center shock it looks like they suggest 2 2mm washers? looking at my car (picture) with 2 shims under side shock it makes the shock level,which i would have to assume is what you would want?

(1) 2mm spacer for side shock, so it will have full clearance of the upper pod deck.

Yokomo never seem to run the same car twice, so many little changes ?

All the Team AE drivers, and anyone that had access to the inline car at vegas, would have been running it.
It was a night and day difference from the 5.1 on the extreme high grip surface, no inside lift whatsoever.
No tuning around an issue that wasn't there.
So fun to drive.

The Rev7, and New On-Point cars were silky smooth as well.

Build to the directions, and you can't go wrong.

I really like the BlackArt Audi R8c LMP
It's balanced perfectly, and looks more like a race car then the more popular AMR12.
The R10 is also a great low downforce open cockpit body for Blinky.

I love that rear axle with deep wheel offset

And it looks like he's running dive in ft

4T motor with super stock lrp...lol

no receiver pack just 3 caps

They look like the soft black side springs and soft top shock springs

Curious what tire combo he had

And where is ft end reactive castor holes for the top arm...lol

rear shock reversed from rc125.1/2 setup

Totally stock R12

Lemieux also using super stock but with receiver pack

Thanks RBF

What are the most popular 17.5 blinky bodies for 12th?

Still the AMR12?
