No we haven't discussed those parts yet, there doesn't seem to be that much interest in the t-bar. If demand dictates it I guess those could be done also.

The motor plate is repositioned on the graphite pieces to change the weight balance of the pod. The hub and cone are needed to keep the rear width legal.
Sean, will the new narrow hub work if you have a Slapmaster Thrust Bearing on the diff? I am thinking about getting this option since almost everything here in Holland is brushless in 12th scale but I use the Slapmaster on the diff...

I don't know anything about the Slapmaster part so I can't say. The hub is shorter so more axle protrudes from the bearing. If you have some way of taking up the extra space I guess it won't be a problem. The hub is approx. 2.5mm narrower than the original.

Okay, and you know this from your own experience I guess???

In that case I think I will go for this option if it balances the rear pod better with the use of brushless motors...

I have ran the R5 now for several times on our brand new indoor carpet track and all I can say is that it is a great car to drive!!! Very stable right out of the box. We are now testing with different set-ups what works best but we are very pleases with the car in general...

Actually it would be the middle ones. I forgot there are 3 sets of holes in that servo saver. You might be able to run the balls in the lower holes if you put the ball studs out the front of the saver. I run my servo all the way forward and have my ball studs out the back side.

I think it will only need a new bottom pod plate, the other parts already exist.
Put me down for one please!

Anyone know when we might see the 12R5 in stores? I've been looking around, and no one seems to have them available. I would really like to get one to start the indoor carpet season. Also, I want to run brushless, so I will need the four conversion parts that were referred to earlier in this thread. Are they going to be readily available soon?? Any insight would be appreciated.
Thanks.

The major vendors show them on backorder...so I recommend having your local store put one on order for you...they show that they will be back in stock this month...

Joost,

I suggest you ask Brian that question direct, He is a friend of mine but I don't know the answer directly. He posts alot in the 12th scale thread. His username is Slapmaster6000.

I do know he is making some parts for his car similar to what your talking about.

Steve

Maybe another rear pod. Notice the different bulkhead.

I think those are the pod plates off of the 10R5. They are centered for BL motors.

Indeed, it looks different...

Look closely, the bottom of the left bulkhead actually hangs out past the lower pod plate in the back.
