ASE steering blocks w/Lunsford Ti axles, pobably used ASE .020 springs.
Graphite rear axles - to replace stock 3 piece = HEAVY
Aftermarket rear hubs, IRS or CRC
Rear shock mount raised 1.5mm, ASE olive spring
Batteries forward
Moore used Center servo mount = HEAVY
Hara used stock servo mount
Both used small Kimbrough servo saver
Jaco tires - not sure of compunds.

See pics of their cars on earlier pages of this thread.
Good luck

Can someone tell me when to use the pivot for the front of the T-Bar? Also what is the diff between running 1 fixed block and 1 pivot vs 2 pivots on the T-bar?

Thank in advance

Possibly look into the one CRC has for their car. The CRC cross brace is aluminum and I believe width adjustable, but you can ask others to be sure as I have never owned one personally. I can tell you it mounts in the hole in the caster blocks not in the caster block slot.

Steve is right, you can adjust the length of the CRC cross brace with shims.

HB,

The pic in post #60 in this thread, is Andy Moore's car from the IIC, which P2 posted. Yes that looks like the cross brace you would want.

Steve


Thanks Oze.

The cross brace that I used on my car was from my OD12 asphault car. The front track is the same width as the C12 (narrow). The Yokomo asphault car has the same front end spacing as the C12. In the US you can get them here:

The front brace is very inexpensive.
