Hey gang,
I may slip this question into the 12th scale forum as well.... I am considering cutting some upper and lower rear pod plates to be able to move a brushless motor over the 3.5mm needed to weight balance the rear pod correctly. With todays "large wheel" tires on the market, the off sets that they have, it would seem that we could take advantage and move the motor plate over. The disadvantage would be that you will only be able to run wheels that have a 2.75mm off set or greater such as Parma & Jaco. The CRC's have a 1.4mm off set which is not enough to correctly get 86mm to center (half of 172mm for max width). Another disadvantage would be you would not be able to narrow up the rear track width if you use it for tuning. I have made up a set of custom rear pod plates and a shortened right diff hub and have run it in the past. It works as expected and the left rear tire wear matched the right. Diff hubs are not easy to make at my end, but IRS and CRC spit them out all day long. So what do you guys think about this? Painted into a corner with limited tire manufacture selection? Or very cool, why didn't we do this sooner?

Fast, too!

Conversion kits are not very exciting these days with all the top quality kits on the market. But I priced these out so there is no reason for guys to not try them.

I plan on testing them at a local out door asphalt track soon. But old man winter keeps dumping snow and hail on us. Plus, who wants to go racing when it's a balmy 38F? I could short out some old IB's for some warmth, but it wouldn't make the track any warmer. All kidding aside, for the t-bar fans, this chassis is well worth the look.

I am building an MS3 up right now with all brushless intent. I will take pics when it's all wired up. I picked up, over the winter, a GenX that OD prepped and wired. It was gorgeous! I need his CA technique. Just imagine if OD did the CA and then I took clear gloss lacquer to the chassis.... we'd puddle ourselves.

OK, I hacked out some rear plates to pull off the brushless concept of moving the motor plate over. Here's the results. I have a 13.5 on order and plan on getting some smaller spurs. I will be racing out doors on asphalt on a track that is roughly 100'x140'. Any input for a roll out would be great. I can tell you what that 4 Star likes! Just don't have clue to 13.5 outside. I tossed the car on the scale to see what kind of damage was done. Wasn't bad at all, tipped the scale at 827g 100% ready to roll. Once I get all the new electronics installed, I will recheck that figure. Oh, the aluminum lower plate was a left over from "move the motor over last season". Awesome heat sink, though.

Any time. Let's puddle!

Start the 13.5 at around 65mm. On that big track you may be able to go higher. We are running 17.5 and gearing over 90mm

827g is pretty impressive. My car with a GTB (Sphere is lighter) weighs in at 880! Oink! Brushed car is 815
