I'm glad the video worked for you. I'll try to do more videos on other aspects of 1/12th scale. i.e gluing tires, and truing tries.

I like mine, its not difficult to set up once you figure it out. the car handles well, and is quick, but it is not on point in stock racing. The car is too heavy out of the box, with Ti screws, and the smallest servo, it is 40g over weight.

A smaller shock in next, other than that, dont know where to shave weight from, other than losing the independent front end and bell crank. Then it would be just another generic 12th scale.

I converted mine to the 3.1. With the small tubes, you need to run a significantly higher lube than most other tube designs to get the same feel.

I also found that the car handles best with the smallest possible tires, which is 41.5. The axle spacers do not go low enough to run any smaller and still maintain ride height.

Edward, what tires are you finding work well on the carpet? I have been running the Med/Hard front, and Soft rear in stock 13.5, and med/med in mod.

Surprising, Mine set up for mod with ESC fan and 6800 batteries and mostly Ti screws weighs in about 3-4 grams heavy, perfect !

There is a lot of variance in weight of many components. Different motors can easily be 10g or more different in weight. Some esc's are bricks. A viper weighs a LOT more than a Tekin. Batteries can be different. Servos can be a few grams different and smaller isn't always lighter.

You are right, of course. I should of qualified my statement. Out of the box, with no electronics, the R12C3 is 25g heavier than a X-12/14 w/graphite axle.( And the Xray isn't exactly a light weight!) Ti turn buckles(all 5), and most screws got 10g off the Yok., and the side tubes are 5g lighter than running the shock. Need to find another 20g somewhere, and run a lightly painted body! (I got the Xray to min weight with the same electronics I have on this car)

I would like to know what electrics others are running to make min. weight. I am running; ORCA VX1, ORCA 6400mah, Sanwa SRG-HS, Sanwa RX-472, Killshot, all wires shortened, 16g motor and batt leads.
