I have them

Don't worry, you're not missing out on anything special. I find that running them on the front made the car easier to drive. Very well could be my imagination.

Am I supposed to trim the plastic shock ends 3mm or something?

1- Fill the damper a little past where the threads start. Take note of the little machined groove in the shock body.

3 Do 2 or 3 times.. Move the piston up and down to remove any air bubbles that might be trapped.
4- Slide the plastic end piece onto the piston shaft.
5- With your index finger, keep pressure on the piston shaft to prevent it moving up while screwing the plastic end piece on.
6- Before you screw the plastic end piece on, locate the machined groove in the shock body.
7-The machined groove helps channel any excess oil out past a few of the threads and into the sponge, and anything the sponge can't absorb will be cycled through the sponge and push out.
8- When slowly screwing in the plastic end piece, move the shock from a vertical position to a horizontal position. This will give the excess oil a better chance to escape and flow out easily. Go slow, and give the oil a chance to escape.
9- Slowly tighten the plastic piece down and just snug it up, I find you don't really need to tighten it all the way down.
10-Let go of the piston shaft and see what it does. If it moves out a little you're good to go. If it doesn't move that's fine too.

Move the piston back and forth, and listen to hear if there are any bubbles trapped inside.

1/12th line of servos by Savox, Futaba.. I've bolted them in with little to no problems.

TQRc is a good place, Amain has a few parts too, otherwise Banzai Hobby or RC Race and Drift in Japan. Both are very reputable online store.

Try different manufacture ball cups. I've been using TN Racing ball cups which are a harder plastic then the Yokomo cups. Work well.

As for the bell crank, just use some thin shims and that should remove and slop in the bell crank.

Click here. Yokomo R12

Quite a few shops no longer have (or can't order in) Yokomo C3.1 chassis kits. Most places are out of stock here in Japan. This might be a sign of something new is on the horizon...
Maybe we'll see a WC version in the coming months?
