I've been pretty quiet on the forums lately for a good reason, I've busy in the shop. I am proud to announce the release of the MS3 12th Scale Conversion kit, the successor to the MS2.3. This new chassis is more versatile allowing the racer to choose either the Asc/IRS or the CRC Pro-Strut front ends. Then you can choose between Asc, IRS, CEFX, or CRC t-bar rear ends. I am still working with a molded tubbed carbon fiber chassis. All new, is a shallow off set to the nose. By removing the shim stack, the front ends bolt right on. The foot print of the chassis, if it were to meet the carpet, is smaller then any flat plate chassis could ever be. At 4.05" wide at the edges of the cells, it's narrower then most link cars. All this adds up to corner speed. The cells can be moved fore & aft for weight bias. The cross brace is drilled out for a variety length of damper tubes.
Pre-production MS3's have already captured Roar Regional Titles in stock & 19t! Both of these cars were fitted with Asc/IRS front ends while one had Asc/IRS rear end and the other had a CEFX C12 rear end. Both cars had unmatched corner speed which carried it into the next corner. Both cars tipped the scales at a scant 788g for stock & 817g for 19t.
The conversion kits are now available! I purposely waited to announce the car. I wanted to avoid the "it will be ready in a few weeks" phrase, plus I don't like the pressure of back orders.
The kit includes the chassis, rear cross brace, blue hardware, bumper, stickers, instructions & set up sheets. Ordering info should be up on the website soon. www.slapmastertools.com
If that is not enough, the Low Roll Center Sockets (LRCS) are back in stock! The LRCS provides bolt in rear traction to t-bar cars by replacing the rear socket, lowering the pivot center .050" without changing t-bar rake. We have found that a car that gets loose in the final minute of a run can go the distance with the addition of the LRCS. Or it will allow the use of more aggressive front tires. Then the 10th scale oval guys heard about this new part and immediately fell in love. Oval cars that run without tweak screws need to run 2 LRCS. The pivot ball is made of nickel teflon coated aluminum fitted into a one piece delrin socket. The 12th scale kit #116, 10th scale is #117 (which includes 2 sockets).
With the Pro 10 class coming on board, several are scooping up the #110 10th scale thrust kits to keep the diff intact. It's the same design as the popular 12th scale thrust kit but fits the 10th scale axles. Lock that diff down without slippage, get that hole shot and stop worrying about the hub bearing going bad. Many drivers have told me that they don't even work on the diff's anymore.
I just smile and say: I know.
Several updates will be going up on the website shortly. In the meantime, you can PM me or email me through the website.
