That wheel works fine.
The offset is somewhere between CRC and the Parma/Jaco wheels.
You can shim any of the wheels to fit.

Yea my lastest setups are on
http://www.teamassociated.com/setupsheets/RC12R5.1/

My lastest 13.5 from vegas and my latest mod from the Halloween race are on there.

But i normally run alittle toe out about 1 to 1.5 degree and -2 degree's camber. But keep in mind you have to be running a soft setup for this much camber to work i have found.

Default Reedy 65c 1 cell packs

I don't know where else to post this. Has anyone tried these packs? I bought one and was totally disappointed in it. I bought it to use at a big race and My Thunder Power pack that was 8months old out performed it by a good margin. Is their something I need to do to wake this pack up. A friend bought the lesser capacity Reedy Pack and had the same results. We are just wondering if their is something we can do to wake them up. Both packs were bought to use at the same race and class 12th scale 17.5 blinky. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

These is always a chance there is a problem with the battery but they should outperform most if not all of what is on the market.

Can you test it with a Turbo 35? You can send it back for a test if you want.

I don't have a Turbo 35 or know anyone that has one. I can send it in to get tested. What information do you need from me to have it sent in, and where do i send it in to get tested?

Does anyone on team race 17.5 open ESC? It would help having some set ups other than for 4T or 3.5T.

My local track is just too small to run anything faster than a 13.5 or 10.5 so we decided to make it more of a driver's track and do 17.5 boosted. So far everyone in it loves the speed and track.

We don't have a lot of guys running 17.5 on the team but the chassis setup should translate pretty well from motor to motor.

That's what I have found.

Blackstock, or Hebert setup both work well in blinky.
