Silver side springs, Blue center, .20 AE front springs, 10 or 20 damper grease.
Jaco or BSR Blue rear, Double Blue front, or Ulti X Med rear and Hrd fronts
is a good set up for TQ.

With great sadness I will have to part from my two Team Assoxiated 12R5.2's.
These chassis' have been amazing for the short time I've had them. The modifications done to them have proved very successful and both cars handle amazing.

If you have any questions or want me to email you the photos, please PM me.

My new BSR tires are 46 to 47 mm. I understand 43 is the desired size. I'm working on set up and want to hit track with car at the best I can get to start. I noticed it changes roll out from 40 to 43. Should I just run tires new at full size or true down to 43? Will i even notice being new to onroad ?How many packs would it take burn off a mm of foam? Does someone at Tq true tires for a fee?

Thanks in advance I know these are basic questions for you guys.

Sad to see you getting out. I've leaned so much from you in a short time. Good luck to whatever you get into next. If I can help you with anything from the USA, drop me a note

There is no setup for running tires of that size
If you're going to run 1/12 on carpet, you should pick up a tire truer

Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad the videos are of assistance to you. I'll have more videos coming soon. At the moment I'm just waiting upon my new kits to arrive. Regardless of the kit the information will cross over to most kits.

Keep racing and test, test, test!

A tire truer is key for 1/12th scale racing. However, you don't need to blow your budget on latest and greatest. You can always buy a very simple hand crank truer. The most important part to the truer is the cutter. If you're really keen on buying an automatic one then eBay is your best bet. Make sure you are using the appropriate arbor for the wheels.

Just come to TQ on race day, and one of us most likely will have a tire truer. Don't run it at 46. The tires will easily chunk at that size.

Hi, I purchased the R5.1 front brace because I'm using the 2mm spacers up front and the R5.1 and the one that came with the kit R5.2 are the same . I thought the R5.1 was shorter so it would fit?
