Our carpet is 90 x 42.
Thanks Andrew. We didn't have a 72, so I went with a 76/56 to give me a 100.7 rollout. I should have my foams here shortly to be trued. I'm just waiting on Paypal to transfer my money so I can pick up the car.

Is it just me or does it seem that Airtronics 94761 servo doesn't directly fit the 5.2 chassis? Do I need to servo tape it in?

I use the Airtronics 94819 whitch is a bit larger, barely get that centered... On the right side its pushed all in. Guess you must drill some to make it fit(or use tape)

Default 1s lipo in and out of car

Im loving my r5.2 but the design of the cell removal is already proving a pain.You have to remove the front shock mount to remove the cell .Surely this cant be right.Car is so good but this is in over sight unless im missing some thing in the build or design.

Never use servo tape to mount servos in pan cars. Use Shoo Goo. It's is more stable, easily removable and does not raise a relatively heavy component 1.5mm.

Unless your antenna-wire is wrapped around the pole, you only need to unscrew the three screws holding down the "lipo top plate"(with s.mount attached). Else you can cut off the ears on the tweak bar and on the top plate, but I think that will make the battery spin around. Like this better than the old layout, trying to get the tape around the battery and not get stuck under the center damper.

Will these IRS Ride Height Adjusters [MTR170-103] work on the 12r5.2?
