Ask Keven Hebert, TeamAssociated / Reedy / ApexRC-photo-3.jpg

Here is my 12R5.1 Lipo Conversion.

I like it VERY much. Very fast and easy to drive.

Mike

Do you get the same weight from a 1s and all the electrics?

Looks good

If anything what was first thing you noticed from other configuration regarding battery?

Apparently these are things web page says it is different because

The RC12R5 chassis has been optimized for 1S LiPo batteries, with the following additional enhancements:

* Inline battery positioning generates a lower polar moment of inertia for smoother mid-corner steering in high traction conditions
* Lengthened wheel base for added stability
* Front bulkhead mounting position widened to give more options for upper control arm length and added adjustability for multiple track and motor conditions
* Updated rear upper pod geometry increases leverage on center shock to help compensate for the lighter minimum overall chassis mass when using LiPo batteries
* Stronger blue aluminum chassis braces
* Thicker 3mm rear chassis brace gives extra support for rear body posts ad side springs

The 1st thing I noticed was how forgiving and easy it was to drive. It carried good speed without feeling edgy.

Hi, the camber on any setup sheet should be negative. For Ballstud, there is 2 kind of ballstud associated offer, one of them is short and the other one is taller by .030. The black one are always short and silver one are tall. Let me know if you have any questions

I am excited about the new inline also

See ya

p.s. Have they changed things in this "latest production kit"?
The one I had been running last year had a bigger top plate on only one position for the shock mount. The new kit has a different geometry for the center shock.

Hi Keven, I tried the 1,1,1.5 pistons and I find them to be really soft especially with the oil you suggest. I had to run 70 wt oil just to get the the feel I was used to. The only thing I can think of is that our track has WAY more bite then the tracks you run on plus I think you have to use Jaco blues at most big races. Any thoughts ?
Thanks.

Hi,

It is a little softer than let say 56 for sure but I like running my car pretty light it changes direction quicker ! I am pretty sure IIC had quite a bit more traction than MSI so I don,t think that would be an issue but with sorex tires the setup could change a little bit ! I assume you can try a little heavier oil but I am prety sure I would not go any more than 10wt more then what I posted.

Hope this helps.

In the front suspension notes... what does "2mm on top upper arm" refer to ?

Hi Keven,
I run on a low grip carpet track in mod with my TC6. We are not allowed any traction additives of any sort.
What changes can you recommend say from your IIC mod setup to allow for these conditions?

Thanks

Hey RedBullFiXX,


I think what Kevin means is where the caster block mount's to the aluminum arm mount you can put a shim in between there. Also you can add shim's between the lower arms and aluminum arm mount.If you do so your going to have to take off the Graphite brace.

Hope this helps
