CRC Raceway and Hobby has the Airtronics 94761 (not HV) version in stock. Not the SRG-HR, but it works pretty well and may be a better choice if you run a speedo with a built in booster.

The Slapmaster bumper or the CRC 3259 fitted to the Xti front body posts will practically eliminate any chassis breakage.

CRC makes one that I based my design on.

yea i think that was and idea early on, but don't think crc uses it or any team drivers. i never seen anyone with it on any 1/12 scale cars. like i said i think it was and early idea. but if that what works for you then stay with it. good luck. that may have been intended for asphalt use

any type of rigid bumper will have two big drawbacks: 1) rigid bumpers are heavy, which is especially problematic with all of that added weight hanging out in front of the front wheels, and 2) upon impact there is huge stress put on the attachment screws and in turn on the chassis in the area where the screws go thru. That force risks pulling the screws thru the graphite or making the chassis plate delaminate. Foam bumpers are way better for 3 reasons : A) they weigh almost nothing, B) they protect the chassis better, and C) they also protect and support the body nicely. CRC sells a nice foam bumper, Slapmaster sells one, and AE also sells a very small one for the R5 cars that will also fit.

You can use Kimbrow spurs, just remove the 2 1/4" shims from the diff by the red spacer and you may need to reshim the axle for center. Using the 1/8" diff balls will move the diff side tire out 2 shims worth.

Frank watched me plow into outside wall in the front chicane at IIC. After I bounced what felt like 30' backwards, I drove off. Slapmaster part number #105 - black foam bumper, 4 grams. Wasn't a moment of grace, but I did finish my race. I did shear the e-clip off inside the shock. There was just no way it was going to stay in place with that kind of rapid deceleration. Moral to the story: run a foam bumper! A few bucks for a bumper is way less then a chassis, body damage, and wasting your time in the pits putting a new chassis under the car.

Think I'm going to ring some door bells for candy.

This is probably a stupid question, but did you install the springs on the kingpins correctly? From the photos it looks like they are compressed a lot or not there.

With that size tire you have to take the alum. spacers between the chassis and The front end mount plate out. They are ment for full size front tires. You will need the optional l ride height shims to get to the correct ride height.
