battery brace is a waste of time guys. the super thin 3m double stick tape is the hot setup. we've been running the battery far forward (just so it doesn't hit the links) as it helps calm down the car in high grip scenarios.

Denney thanks for the link. For a club basher like myself that's just what the Dr. ordered. Having to pull the battery out to charge in a sac is a pain. That simple piece of carbon could make my job a little easier.

Check out the RMR rebel 12 chassis. I have sold a bunch of these around the world! It has even made the A main at the past IIC event in 17.5 1/12, it comes in a 2mm and 2.5mm versions.

Hello!
I am new to 1/12 and I have (for now) two questions:
1) how and why do you flip rear side links?
2) what spacers do you usually use in front springs - I have built it as per manuall but I think it is quite tight...??

Thank you!

PS: medium carpet track, medium grip

Funny thing you brought the battery brace up Denney. I broke one at indoor champs. No big crash or anything, I just notice after a heat it was broken on one end.

The Diggity brace is a nice upgrade. It should certainly be tougher than the plastic one. Double stick taping batteries sucks - I had to do it the rest of the weekend and it was pretty annoying.

Some more questions...
3) rollout starting point for 6.5t motor?
4) how is active caster set? And what does it change in the car??


Thank you!

I have but I can not find that specific information!
1,2 and 4 are specific to our car...
and as for rollout perhaps someone could make a starting rollout diagram with ie motor turns and track style (only diagrams that calculate rollout I have found, but not starting points)

Thank you!
