Looking good, but removing the upper deck idd is a pain.
Please let us know how the longer version works.
Whats an estimated sales price?

Removing the upper plate is only 4 screws... Not so painfull.

Anyway, on the second LpL Chassis, we have design the upper plate so you can remove the battery without unscrewing the plate.

here are some pics :

* Main Chassis 4mm longer.
* Advancement of the central shock absorber of 12mm.
* Fixation of upper deck in three points not offset for the best returns effort from the shock.
* Better maintains of battery pack.
* Possibility to set and remove the pack without removing plates.
* Weight distribution left / right ideal.
* A strut bar for the front end will complete the kit.
* Available soon (don't price for the moment)

Hi m8, nope, it doesnt. The mounting holes arent the same. You'd need to have custom made alu parts on the front suspension to make it fit.

I was wondering when/if this thread was going to get resurrected again....

I didn't have the ballz with the current "climate". I will just have to put AE or CRC stickers on it so I don't get punted!

It is a very good car, as good as anything else out there. It just takes a bit more time to acclimate to than a standard front end.

You will never have to worry about an ill handling car after a hit do to a front spring issue, and it is very durable (insert Naoto comment here ).

Just copy the rear set-up from a 5.1 and you will be good on that end.

Here is my R12 in its latest iteration with a CRC (oh the irony! ) shorty battery adapter to move things to the center more and in my opinion give a cleaner more modern look.

I have successfully put mine on pace with some of the fastest stock racers in the Midwest region.

Don't even bother with a car that does not have the inner spring arm conversion...

Tires can be a bit of a hassle, but if you don't mind mounting them yourself they are pretty cheap from Japan even with shipping (an order of 3-4 sets of front and rear donuts end up being around $6-7 a pair).

Good luck!

Mike Slaughter

P.S. I do feel I should warn you the path to happiness is much quicker with a CRC/AE/On-point etc especially depending on your local.
