Having a look at the worlds pictures I saw many guys using steel balls in the diff (at least thats what it looks like, silver shiny balls) is there any advantage in steel balls? I thought ceramics are the way to go?
In the R5 manual there are put 8 balls in the diff. How many would you recommand for modified? Do you even use both rows (inner and outer ring to put balls in or just the inner or outer ring?)
Sorry for the stupid question I m new to 12 scale
Steel balls have more friction than ceramic, so it is easier to make a diff for mod without having it slip.

geeunit1014: thx for the info !!! thats what I thought because price shouldnt be an issue for those racing at the worlds. but I think they will use grade 25 or at least grade 5 chrome steel balls as most kit diff balls I had vary too much in size

Rick, thanks for posting the setups of yours and Ronald's cars. Some interesting contrasts to think through.

On your setup, can you tell us whether you were running the front hinge pin brace, and if so, is it the original 12R5 piece, #4606?

Default Servo size

Hey guys,
I really want to get into 1/12 scale racing and currently looking at the r5.1. I happened to have a standard size jr mp80g servo which was meant for heli tail control and is only rated for 4.8v. Can this servo be used in the r5.1?
Thanks for your help.
