It is worth looking into. I will pass your info on to the design team. Right now all focus is on getting the Assassin kits out to those that have ordered them. Time will then be devoted to other projects of this type.

Default black knights brushless

could you tell me if the system works fine with 4 cells? any stuttering etc or anything?

also, how much runtime you get with 3000's in ur pic? driving just as you would in mod with 33's?

im v. interested in brushless 12th, but yet to take the plunge. if ur findings are to my liking i may be persuaded, lol

cheers

Rice 98 I think your on the right track.I've been thinking the same about installing a Novak system in my 1/12th car.That is the future of R/C racing. The only problem is getting more people interested.

well i know im in the corally thread, but i drive 2 trinity's. i could have one setup as i normally would run, and another brushless. then i could really see the difference for myself.

I've been trying to find diff rings(thrush washers) for the the 1/12th diff . I just want the bigger diff rings (19.8x9.8 mm) Any one know where I can get them in the USA. My local bearing shops look at me if I'm from Mars.

Default Canada Eh?

Hi all,

been following this thread and various results as my club is getting into 12th scale again, and being European stuck in North America, I figured a European car to take on the Associateds and Yokes over here would be fun.

I would like to know though if there are any shops in Canada ( Alberta especially) selling the cars and parts, or if not where I might be able to find a list of dealers I could buy from.

Thanks

Just curious, does Corally make a complete SP12M that is already full graphite instead of having to purchase the standard SP12M and then having to purchase the graphite upgrade kit?

Thanks

It is certainly possible to buy the SP12M in full carbon in the UK. Pt no for the 4 cell kit is 00051.

Accord - Here you are. I'm pretty sure this is correct.

Does anyone have any input on the differences between mounting steering servo flat on chassis w/ servo saver pointing up or servo mounted on angle w/ servo saver pointing down?

Default Servo

Alien,

I have tried both on my 12m. I think it is probably better to follow the original layout (angled servo). When you lay the servo flat it is really difficult to not have a lot of bump steer. Bump steer is really bad on bumpy surfaces and can cause erratic steering. If I can get the angles correct I would prefer a laid down servo, but in this case performance counts.
