My cars are at @770 Grams, and am not worried about it. I do use some alum screws but also run a reciever pack. I don't think that extra weight hurts you much if at all.

Just tickering between race day. Little to no impact to the standings on race day I'm sure.

I do have a performance related question regarding Parma/Jaco tires. For stock (17.5) what would be best tires for the rear (Orange, Yellow, Pink)? They all seem to be similar/same shore rating.

Default stock 17.5

Fastest option would be yellow/orange rears and black fronts.

I went through my car tonight and noticed I don't have the same ride height from left side vs right side. Has anyone else seen this and if so, how do you fix it?

Default fix it

The fix is what is causing it,
1.odd size tyres
2.odd size ride height adjusters in back
3. sticky king pin ,
4.sticky top arm
5.car is tweaked
6.sticky centre rear pivot

body mounted in correctly, wires catching some where.List is endless .Let us know what the solution is and what caused it.

Can someone do me a favor and measure the dimensions of a completed RC12R5.2 shock? Diameter and length, in millimeters preferably.

Do you guys run any toe out or camber on the front end of the car? I don't see anything about it on the setup sheets.

0 toe, start with 1* of camber and adjust. I noticed my car was off a little L/R ride height, but it didnt seem to affect anything. Everything else was square, it drove square, and it was fast

The camber and toe settings are in the top left corner of the setup sheet under Front Suspension.

I donT want this to turn into a "wiring thread" but I'm running a SXX with Novak booster, and mini receiver and I feel the car is packed. Can some of you start showing your cars. Just like to get some ideas. Thanks fellas

The metric flat head screw angle is 90 degrees. A simple way to drill the countersink is to use a countersink bit for wood. You can find these in many stores. one example is P/N 858 on this page

I found that when you starting a hole in CF a small bit may wander and your hole ends up off center. You can correct with the larger bit but it's easier to start the hole with a center drill bit.

I think it was tires because I ran the car for 8 mins and measured again and it eventually evened out.

I didn't try it yesterday because I hadn't seen this post. I will try it next time.

I'm having trouble understanding how to build the tubes. I read the manual that says use the #6636 grease, but then the setup sheets have 20K silicon oil for the tubes. Which is it? I thought tubes used different grease, but can I use silicon oil here also?
