The screws are too close to fit the x ray shim. You've got 2 options: either you dremel the pockets in the shim or you simply cut the shim in the middle into 2 parts. You can now put it beneath the king pin , instead of shimming the whole front carbon assembly. Far better in my opinion.

Well I got a fair deal and ordered an E3 today, really looking forward to build. Do I have to use a mini servo with this kit? For some reason I thought I was able to use a Std size ..lol

No hope, standard size servo doesn't fit.

Yeah, I figured I had this one confused with another. I think I found an Xpert Servo that will work, mini style

Looking back the podium in IFMAR Worlds... why James Allison was there??? He should be busy on the preparation of W11.



Sorry, a bit off topics.

What, you mean this James Allison? One of the people helping organise the 12th Worlds works for the Mercedes F1 team and arranged for him to pop down and hand out the trophies, he doesn't live far away.

Probably he showed up there and introduced "DAS" technology to 1/12 RC world!

Some people used to run the XRAY one in the E2 so that would also work in the E3, but to be honest nowadays most run a spool.

If you have any build questions just post on here, but to be honest they go together pretty well.

Hi
just wondering how high a 1/12 pan car body should be?
my eclipse 3 chassis front height in 3.5mm and 3.7mm rear,

is it ok to have a 1/12 scale body for about 3.8~4mm high? from a plate ground?

because every-time I finished a run I can see my body is touching the ground

Great question, I too want to know what ride height to set it at. We have a bumpy smaller asphalt track (medium traction) and I need a baseline setup
