for a thicker chassis you could always try http://www.fibre-lyte.co.uk/ he makes it normally at 2.4mm but you could ask him to make it thicker, he may do it if you order enough of them

Well i got to say the dam thing is on the money and i am glad to be part of the AH12 crew, the CEFX is not so good with stock but with mod it's a beast, now i have two cars that i llliiikkkeee, the AH is smooth and in the corners they can't stop me, you know you have one too, i will be racing the AH more than the CEFX and will be as fast as you soon so watch out.

As fast as me? lol you already are probably if not faster.

After examining my car after the enduro jumbo raced with it, it seemed there was a little crack on the lower rear pod, but maybe that is some carpet crap.

But overall i have nothing bad to say about the kit, it gets better and better. Just need to get those motors ripping now, thats my only problem is trying to get those motors going.

You going nextweek? give me a call. 516 857 6735

I've heard that the white plastic parts are fragile and the weakest link of the rear suspension of the AH12, did anyone had trouble with it?
And are there different (side)springs available for the kit?

the white plasitc pieces have held up for me. people think its fragile because they over tighten the screws which makes them split.

I havent found any optional spring kits, the springs they give you are good for indoor and outdoor. I always see hara which those white springs, but can never find them.

It is hard to find the right diameter spring as the one on the car. The springs on the car now are tapered in a little on the top. Hard to see it by looking at it, but if you (cough) put it in wrong and didn't know it, it would be a headache. Also about the chassis you might wanna make sure you get a rear bottom pod plate with it also.

Hi guys, I also have been running the hara hammer 12 recently and I thought I'd add my 2 pence worth. Is it me, or do you have to turn the tweak screw on the pinion side right down compaired to the other side? Corally front springs will fit onto the rear side mounts although you have to cut away a little bit of the white plastic that holds the springs in place. I also took out the ali stand offs that are inside the springs and filed down all the edges at 45 degrees. It just helps the springs to clear the stand offs and make it work a little better. The two white plastic bits that the springs go onto need a lot of care when fitted. If you do them up too tight, the whole back end binds up which is not good at all. If you don't do them up tight enough however, there is a lot of play at the back end, again not good. What I did was to polish the stand offs and then fit the plastic bits with tiny washers between so that its as tight as possible, but with no play at all. Very time extensive but worth it in the end I think! In between each run though, try to blast that area out with compressed air because the dust works itself in between and makes it all bind up. I think that the chassis (with all the holes in) may be good for outdoor use, but here in the UK we only run 1/12th indoors on carpet. I have already sent the chassis to Fibre Lyte after breaking it and maybe next time I'll get them to fill in some of the holes, thus making the chassis flex less and better suited for carpet. If this helps anyone, ideal, that's the idea but if anyone has any help for me, please post it and we'll see if we can get my car sorted! Cheers, NCR.

You have a pic of your kit? I would like to see it with the corally springs and the shaved down standoffs and middle piece etc.

All I gotta say was that my brothers car was a beast at the 500 lap enduro at my LHC, the thing ran awesome the whole entire time. The only problem there was, was everytime I got off of the track I had t o switch transponders with my team mate but that wasnt that bad, the only problem I had with the car was SPEED, I had the same speed around the corners which is great but I didnt have enough speed in general.

Has anyone tried a Mod motor in the hara?
