Hey. What is the best way to fill the side tubes? And how much to put in there?

Default RSD Does the R5.2

With the carpet season just around the corner, we have just released our transverse battery conversion kit for the AE Pan Car. The conversion kit makes the car easier to drive and more consistent over 8 minutes. It also allows you to play with your forward shock position a bit. You can move the front mounting position really far forward or really far back. We found the furthest most position gave the most stability.

Use the conversion in combo with our Team Prime 12th scale shock and our springs to get the most out of your AE Car.

So Question on the Side Dampeners. Does it matter which way they are ran? I've seen some guys run the alum to the outside the instructions show them on the inside. I would think on the outside would keep dust and debris from getting in them quite as much.

I've run the side dampers in both configurations, and have preferred having the aluminum on the inside like the kits says. Main reason is I found that the plastic area is going to get dirty regardless, so I like it outside where it can be easily cleaned off after each run.

My other reason is purely a theory. Since any excess fluid in the tube will want to go down hill, I want the aluminum part at the high point of the car which is the inside. This way that excess fluid will want to flow out of the tube, giving the plastic part a constant fresh supply. So in theory this could allow the damper tube to work properly over a longer period.

Again my second reason is just a theory, and could easily be hogwash. However, the ease of cleaning is what really has me sold on the kit method.

I turned it around as although it's slightly harder to clean, it gets a lot less dirty as it's not in line of the tyre junk.

ride height shims for front and different adjusters for rear ride height. Different springs. Side links and the plastic parts up front. 1/12 is really simple.

Default 12R5.1 build question?

Hello everyone,

I'm building my first 1/12 pan car and need some help with gearing.

I have a*12r5.1*running a 7200mah 1s lipo, 46mm tyres front and rear, 6.5t trinity D4, and 1s hobbywing xerun esc

I will only be running this car in front of my house on smooth asphalt paved street. Not really into carpet tracks or racing.

My question is what would be a good pinion / spur combo for this setup? I was thinking 86t spur/40t pinion? Also, what timing should I run on the esc AND the motor can?

Thanks for your thoughts

If any 12r5.2 owners out there are looking to make some up grades check out my 2mm chassis, magnesium pod plates, and magnesium hubs.

Red Mosquito Racing 12r5.2 associated 1/12 hop up parts!

These parts have become a popular choice to 12r5.2 owners around the world.

For questions you can contact me at red_mosquito7@rocketmail.com

Great Job to Jim Spencer! He was able to TQ by a lap and take the win Sunday at the BRCA 1/12 nationals running a RMR chassis and light weight parts.

Hats off to Keith Robertson for taking the TQ and win on Saturday with a AE 12r5.2.
