Nice ride

Couple tips
1>Remove the zip tie holding the wires on the pod
12th scale pods need to be free & smooth
Ideally you would want shorter, thinner (16g) gauge wire as well

2>Move the steering links to the front of the servo saver for better ackerman

Nice work! The new decals are really sticky, do you guys use detergent or anything on the decal, to slide into place and then let it dry?

Does anybody know if the U.S. Spec Corally wheels are offset,I am trying to keep the car narrow,and the Ennti tires are not sold here.
Im looking for 1mm to 3mm offset.
Im hope the Corally wheels will work I am running a narrow body and I have been cutting non offset wheels.
Thanks in advance

I had previously thought the Enetti would work, but, Jaco/Parma wheels have the most off-set, so if you want to keep it narrow, those are the best bet
Rear wheels will go right to the edge of the body, front wheels have too much off-set compared to the Tamiya wheels

Here are my recommendations based on test & racing so far
For Carpet Jaco Rear white dot, with Tamiya Option front
For Outdoor Tamiya Kit Rear, with Tamiya Option Front

Enetti are similar to the CRC wheels, with almost no off-set

Gratz to Dave Garcia with his new RM-01, hitting the podium at the TQ 2nd Anniversary Race
First time out with the car, looking good

Will those uprights allow enough height adjustment to use standard height fronts?

Yes,with those you can run a Tamiya wheel down to the rim, but they still have the same axle specs, so not enough off-set for standard 12th scale front wheels, and also still metric, not standard size

12th scale spindles are coming

Thanks fr the advise,I will keep searching
On a side note,here in Japan TCS does not allow any other placement of any of the front suspension besides the springs. This includes the servo saver and servo position. Its really an odd way of doing things but I think they do it to keep the car easy to drive and not so twitchy.

Somethings to look forward to:

54364 RM-01 Carbon Lower Deck
2.5mm thick carbon-fiber lower deck replaces kit-standard FRP component to increase overall chassis rigidity and bring out the chassis' maximum potential. It has an additional hole to allow installation of a small steering servo.

&

54365 RM-01 Carbon Lower Brace
2.5mm thick carbon-fiber lower brace replaces kit-standard FRP component to increase rigidity of the motor mount section for enhanced power transmission efficiency.


A TRF kit couldn't be too far off?
