Just curious how many people run this car in the stock configuration? Would a new 1/12 driver be able to tell the difference in moving the battery pack? Just trying to see if I should look at options before I build the car.

I bought two of these kits and went straight for the transverse battery layout, longer shock length, and used a team prime damper. These modifications made the car very consistent, fast and it handled like a dream. I've since sold them to other drivers who are loving how it drives.

Check my YouTube channel for the modifications I listed.

That chassis is still showing up and winning big races both mod and stock. Joe Trandell and Kevin Hebert have them working really well.

I haven't driven a 1/12 in almost 6 years so I may be wrong. But shouldn't the stock setup work better on today Black Carpet tracks? Team Associated stated that this setup best for high traction back when we were all running on the gray carpet. So what's going on?

Thanks for the responses, I think I will try it stock first. The problem is I don't drive like Hebert, Trandell or Levanen.

Howdy. I am looking for a non-magnetic/bearing tire balancer, for my r5.2, in the vein of: http://www.integy.com/st_prod.html?p...w#.WA8pqoWcHSE (Integy model C22471, in case the link does not work).

This product appears to be out of stock everywhere (new or used). Is anyone aware of an equivalent style balancer that will work for 1/12 wheels?

Interesting, I haven't seen anyone balance 1/12 foams. Once you spin them up on the tire truer and get them to the diameter you need, they've got to be nearly perfectly balanced.

The Roche P12-2016 floating servo mount works. You'll need to use your AE ackermann shims to bring your tie rods back to correct alignment. (Move the servo forward.)

You may also want to order the Roche 16mm stand offs.

I've run it twice, so far, this way. Works fantastic.

The "LIPO" chassis used on the 12r5.1 and 12R5.2 is wider than the original 12R5.
