I have found the same thing as SLOWER ONE discussed previously. Often the two mating surfaces on the bottom of the plastic football (where it rests on the main chassis plate) are not quite flat and also not quite aligned with each other. The football's mating surface(s) can be easily aligned and flattened by rubbing the football gently on an Emory board or fine sandpaper. As a side benefit, doing so also roughens up the football's mating surfaces so they will "grip" the graphite better, making the football less prone to getting get knocked out of position so easily. It also helps to lightly skuff the shine off of the graphite plate just in the 2 areas right where the football rests in order to add a bit more friction and resistance to slippage there. After "fitting" the football to the chassis plate in this manner, it typically will take a really heavy impact to knock the football out of adjustment.

My chassis plate will need replacing soon. What are some good options (OEM or aftermarket)?

The Reflex Racing RR12 is a really great conversion kit. Comes with a floating servo mount and a floating adjustable rear axle. It's a little more than just a chassis, but everything you have will bolt right on. You can run your battery inline or transverse too.

I am building one now. It shaves some weight and gives you 3 battery positions. Also allows you to move the side springs to inward to and optional location.

Default Setup

Well I'm about to venture into some 1/12 scale onroad racing. Been a 1/12 scale oval guy for many-many years, but this will my first attempt at turning both ways. I picked up a nice R5.2.so any base line setup pointers would be greatly appreciated. Track is from what I can tell relatively new so grip level is between lose- med. Any help would be great.
Thanx
Scotty

I'm assuming you're the same Scotty I think you are...

Grip has started to come up on the track. On my RC12 I was running blue center spring, silver side springs, 10k in the damper tubes, I think 40wt in the shock. It was just a bit loose with gray/graylow tires towards the end of the race. Now that the traction has come up and running green/blue I think it would be right where it should be.

Thanks in advance.
