Redbullfixx looking good, but theres one thing you really need on that hopped up version...... the blue alloy servo saver, the white plastic one looks out of place 8-)

oh did you by chance try both carbon and alloy rear pod stiffeners in all combinations, and if so was there any difference?

Latey I've been playing around with the 13.5 SS setup that Scotty will have us running in Vegas, it is surspringly quick even for blinky
This is my new favorite class, and I think this will be the new Expert class at TQ this winter

I was trying to be very weight conscience with this build, still have a few more things to do, Tamiya servo savers are the best though

The carbon pod braces do a better job of keeping the pod square than the ally tubes, most 12th scale are going that way

The 1s "Shorty" is sweet for balance adjustments, and at 40g lighter it helps off-set the weight of the steel axle on the RM
With a 17.5 blinky setup there is no noticeable fade in lap times
With 13.5 it is on the edge

Default Front Jaco Foam Tires

Hello

I searched in this thread for an issue about mounting the front Jaco Tires on
the RM-01 chassis.
I ordered front Jaco Tires for my RM-01. But the mounting holes on the Jaco wheels are too small for the bearings which are originally mounted on the original Tamiya rims.
Can you help me in this matter and tell me any suggestions?

Thank you very much.

Kind regards

There is a post explaining this, one page back ...

The bearing size for Jaco wheels are 1/8" X 5/16" flanged bearings.
They are used as front wheel bearings (2 per front wheel are needed) on the Associated 1/10th and 1/12th scale on-road.

Tamiya 1/12 R/C RM-01 "Racing Master"
