I am still finishing up the new upgrade kits. This past few weeks have been rough as my wife was giving birth. My little baby has had a few complications so i really have not been in the shop much so i have fallen off schedule. I will keep you all posted on the progress but as of right now, I will be concentrating on getting my wife and little baby boy back home. Sorry for the delay. I will keep everyone posted on the new kit and availability. Thanks for the understanding.

Jason,
Sorry to hear you guys had complications. Giving birth for as common as it is, it's still very risky. Hope all gets better soon.

Grats on the new addition to the family and I sure hope you can bring 'em home soon! Did you find out if you could get the AE front ends with the aluminum done in black?

KSG makes them and all of the rest of the AE parts in Black.

Right but Jason is wanting to get the entire front end kit from AE...it is easier and less expensive than parting it out from 2 or 3 different companies.

Right, understand. AE doesnt sell any parts black. KSG does. KSG has all of the parts, in black. It would be a qualtity deal. Jason knows this, I was just answering for those who were looking for a "right now" solution.

Ah...Exotek must be getting their side shock from KSG then...the old chassis had the blue shock but the new one has a black shock. Too bad AE doesn't sell the front end kits with no anodizing that way when other vendors buy them for their chassis they can have them anodized to match.

Default adjusting tweak on a CH12

I got my CH12 on the track for the first time last week and had a blast running it. I've never run a car that didn't have some type of mechanical adjustment for tweak. My car would spin out under acceleration turning left in a couple of the corners. I checked my axle spacing and it is within .5mm side to side. Is the corrective action to place weight on the chassis(or on the rear pod) in this instance?

Is your diff adjusted correctly ?
What surface are you running on ?

I ran it at West Coasr RC. The asphalt was pretty grippy. I'm running Pink Jacos with paragon. Diff is just on the loose side.

BTW what nights do you guys race at TQ?

Have you checked that the car is balanced right to left and have you checked the font end for any binding?

The diff cannot slip, or your car will never go where you point it.
WCRC is very grippy & little bumpy, so I'm sure it was a handful there with a loose diff.

We race every Sun at TQ.
Sean has club races on Wed, & Fri too, but 12th scale is mostly just on Sundays.

Congratulations Jason. I'll light a candle for speedy recovery of all. Forget the cars, Wife and son light years more important.

I ran again at West Coast . Tightened my diff a hair and ran Jack the Ripper sauce. The car ran very well. I do have 1/2 ounce on the rear pod near the left wheel. This is what I put on there last week to cut down the spinning on some left turns. I checked the links and they feel smooth, re-lubed the tubes.

I guess I'll have to head over to TQ. What tire setup do you guys run there and what's a good gear ratio for 17 turn blinky?

Thanks for the help. I'm sure I'll be asking more questions. I feel a bit uneasy without tweak screws!
