Does anybody used a alloy nut instead the carbon one what is in the kit?
Any ideas?

I had the same problem with the diff nut coming loose. I ended up putting a drop of Loctite threadlocker on in it and it has held ever since.

Does the cross brace for the pro strut front end fit as well? I thought that the corally chassis hole pattern was slightly different.

Today my new diff nut arrived and what did i see, i looks a little different.
It is a little smaller then the old one and it looks more like a lock nut, but fits perfekt.
I think i bought one of the old kits.

Hello
I'd like to change front suspension in my SP12X because original aluminum is .......... (not too good), doesn't work at tracks where i run. Is is possible to buy full set or i have tu buy every part separately? I download manual and drawings to rc12l4 so i have all parts number but it is little crazy to buy everything. It would be nice to buy full set. And next question is it possible to use threaded axles instead of original with stupid e-clips?
Thanks

Tral- I know in the U.S. you can buy an entire Associated front end in a kit...it is Assoc. part number 4401, listed under 12L3 parts. I'm pretty sure a European distributor can get that for you.

We use threaded axles, but not sure where they came from. If I can find some I'll post it here. Anyone else help out?

Tral,
you can buy a Corally conversion set. Part number: 75950. It is called 12X WC Front suspension conversion kit. I have this front end. Works very well.

One of the guys at our local club is a national A-finalist as he only uses the standard Corally front end. I don't know why everyone wants to go to AE frontend becuase he has his car working a treat. What do you find is the proble with it at your track?
