Default BIG R12 PACKAGE FOR SALE...

I'm selling my R12's... Both cars are rollers and both have the wide conversions ran on carpet only. lots of extra parts, complete R5.1 rear axle assy. for running standard rims, wheels & tires (yokomo & standard) included. One car has been drilled for the R5 front end (front end not included) as well so you have that option. No pictures yet but if there's interest I'll shoot some of everything. $300.00 shipped in the USA.

Its a hotbodies centershock, but I dont think its still available anymore.
As far as I remember they stopped making it a year ago, but I think the encore shock from CRC will do the same job.

If you wanna use the yokomo, get the plastic insade parts from the asso shock and use those. Also buy the green slime from asso and use that stuff on your O-rings. Then it'll leak a lot less.

Nicely done, when and where can i get it. What will the difference be compared to the factory layout? I really like the handling of this car already

Hi guys I just built my first R 12 so this is a bit new to me. I'm not sure how to adjust the front ride height if you look at the pic the:
Yellow circle is where the spring is.
Green circle is the screw that adjusts the value achieved in the red circle. However it also puts pre-load on the front spring (Yellow circle) Is this bad?

Im coming from a TC background so this is very new to me. Is what im doing correct or way off?

Thanks

1st question is very easy, ride height is changed by putting spacers under the screws that bolt the suspension against the chassis.
2nd, idd it adjusts the preload on the spring. Just like the downstops on the TC's. I usually adjust this like I did on all my 12ths, I make sure the car lays in its springs for about 0.5mm (when the car is RTR, you can push the chassis up for 0.5mm before the front suspension stops moving). The more it is, the more steering you'll loose when going on throttle (cause you'll push the weight up for that 0.5mm).
You can also get a very aggressive car when giving more preload.

In this version, the chassis have the same length than the original "wide chassis".
Currently, we practice a lot of test with this LpL version, and the car have a good feeling, it a little more agressive than the original chassis, and on the new version, we have increase of 4 mm to win in stability.

Hi guys,

Here is some pics of the actual tested car (the short one).
