Rob: Yeah its a little different, but when we first got our RC18T's thats the body we used for onroad carpet. It acctually helps keep the car planted and when we run them on tight coursed it helps keep everything under the body. Its like a mini 1/12th scale Its the same body we are using in the videos below... Im still looking for a touring car body to fit, even asked Parma to make one with us funding it but they never returned our emails? If anyone knows about a touring body that might work let me know..

Rob: I think the RS4 series has too small of a wheel opening to fit.. I think the one XrayFK pointed out for the 1/12th yokomo car will work, too bad they are out of stock I will have to see where I can get one.. I think the 1/12th mini Xray bodies will work also?? Thanks to both of you!

yeah for you guys running 1/10th scale tires. Might be just right for the 1/18th foams. I haven't measured to see if it would fit though.

Some of you have asked me what kind of files .flv are, and they are just flash videos. If you cannot open them in your browser then you can download this free Riva FLV player at: Riva FLV download

Rob: Im going to be getting one of the Yokomo or Xray stratus bodies to see how it will fit. If you get one of the HPI bodies and it fits good let me know..

Diggity, you might want to take a look at these bodys [click]. They're made in the UK by a company called Kamtec for Mardave V12 cars. They're a very cheap form of racing thats been around in the UK for years, the shells are available in lexan of ABS, the dimensions are listed with each body.

Quick question, has the D12 V2 got any major dimensional changes over the D12 geometry wise?
What parts are the ones that tend to break (if any)?

Cheers

Damon

I don't have any plans of running a touring car body on mine.

The only parts that tend to break are the parts that Damon doesn't make. Such as front lower arms, the front lower arms, and the front lower arms. The only time I broke a front arm was my fault, entirely. Shouldn't have been hitting stuff in 1/12 anyways.

Damon: great name by the way We didnt make any major dimensional changes. The lower rear links have been shortened and straightened from the V1 for better mounting of electronics to the rear. The bottom pod plate and top pod plate have been redesigned but no dimensional changes. The rear bulkheads have been slid back a little to allow for larger gearing as needed in stock and 19T classes..

Damon,

Does the XLR8 have any toe in built into the back arm? If so, how much? I'm aiming for 2 degrees and need to know which losi rear hubs to buy.

Thanks

Chris: There is no toe-in built into the rear arms, the kit should have came with a 0deg block for the front and a 1deg and 2deg block for the rear. So if you are aiming for 2deg then you should be able to just use the 2deg pin block.. If you dont want the arms to be at an angle then you will just want to run either a 1deg block with 1deg Losi hubs or another 0deg block with 2 deg Losi hubs.. I hope that helps
