Harry; just another suggestion for you. I would suggest that you try a body change also, I have found that on our track(which is very low bite due to the indoor offroad track and low usage) that going to a parma HD 8 really helped
Maybe in 2 weeks. I have to install new base board and door trim in my house (a little over 550 LF) I'm still a little busy with house work.

Do you have a 12R chassis that I can buy from you? I'd like to run that car again but I need a chassis.

Maybe this question has been answered already, however,
are the body post locations the same on the copperhead compared to
the 12RR?

I do have an old one that I ran on asphalt, yours free if you want it. Might want to pm JayBee and see how much for his new one too. Jason and I are planning on heading back down the weekend after turkey day so mark your calander.


Nice CH JayBee, clean and ready to dominate

Gotta thank everyone that gave me some input on how to get my CH12 up to speed.

Did some testing today, ran BSR Gray/White rear tires, and tried purple as well as magenta fronts, different bodies, front stand shims, etc.

Two single biggest changes were switching to the Proline Speed 12 from the Parma EE1 I had been running, and swapping to the BSR Gray/White rears from the CRC pinks.

My car will now run hard for 9 minutes without spinning out at every corner!

Moderate push for the first minute and a half, and then the car settles in and is quick until my 9 minute timer went off, where it went just a tick loose. So I should be ready to go this Saturday.

Thanks again guys.

Anything will be better than finishing last simply because my car wouldn't stay pointed straight.

It's amazing how much easier it is to turn respectable laps when the car does what you expect it to do.

I've been well, not racing as much as i'd like, but life is still good! How 'bout you, you fell of the face of the net for a while; good to see you back. I'll shoot you a pm about the chassis.

Yeah...I've only been a few months and the rust is starting to flake off, lol. I'm good though just had to take a step back for a couple of years. Is this what you're looking for brah?
