Centre shock position has changed and there's mounting holes for bellcrank and steering servo, other than that it looks very close to the previous chassis.

Hi Chris, as compared with previous narrow or width chassis?

Why does volker run the associated instead of the Yokomo 12th?

Compared with the one from the R12 kit (rather than the R12W)

Default World Conversion Kit

Okie, the front mount is wider. I think this is similar to the wide chassis. So, the original rear shock need to be moved to the front.

The rear is offset by ~2.5mm. Which I don't quite understand. See attached picture.

There's a new offset axle in the conversion kit as well which lines up nicely

How are you finding the Yoke Chris?

I assume the new axle allows the use of normal wheels?

Hey Tim, very different from what I've run in the past, but seems to work quite well now

New axle is still for Yokomo offset wheels, I've used an IRS axle with a short (3mm offset) diff hub in order to run Ulti wheels/tyres. Jaco/Mobgum etc should also be fine, although the CRC wheels may end up being too wide.

Default R12c

When is the new car available? Does someone have a link to where to buy rims and tires for the R12?

Bit scrappy in the Final and I had some bad luck, but still an improvement over the last round
