can you please tell me, will the C12 work with calandra wheels and tires?

i'm pretty sure the rears will, as they're 3 bolt, but the fronts take an unflanged bearing, where as your jacos take a flanged....

if i took both flanged bearings off, replaced them both with unflanged, is that it to run crc wheels? and also, will the offsets be different to say someone using TRC or jaco?

thanks josh, congrats again.

matt rice
I'm pretty sure you can swap bearings

JDXray - What car are you talking about?? I have a few...lol..

Smoking motor - Great!! I'm very glad to hear that!!

Matt - The CRC's should work as the Jaco's take an unflanged bearing as well. Off-set wise I'm not 100% but I think TRC fronts will make the car about 1mm wider (total) and TRC rears would make the car about 2mm more narrow (total)...

i hope this question has not already come up.

josh...when using foam on asphalt (mod 8 turn Ti) how do you regulate droop & ride height to compensate for tire wear. and what's a good droop/ride height to start with? (tc3..58.35mm foams rear - 59.15mm front. thnx

have a little problem with rear end on highspeed sweepers. as the car reaches its apex the rear end tends to step out.
could adding spacers under the rear uprights help? or should i use the inner shock hole on the rear arms?. btw i'm already on the outermost hole on the shock tower.

JDXray - Although the set-up is different the pics from the Carpet Nats, Reedy Race, Asphalt Nats are all the same car. Nothing new or special in the past few months...

nomaak - I would run 4 or 5mm ride height with the front end about .5mm lower than the rear. I usually run about .5mm droop from ride height in the rear and about 1-2mm droop from ride height in the front. I adjust the ride height and droop accordingly to the tire wear....

Neil - Ah, good!!

striker - Try leaning the shocks in - usually leaning them in on the rear tower gives you more rear traction, especially in the center of the corner or in long, high speed corners...

Josh, I noticed on the new 3.5mm FK chassis that the batteries are moved forward and the servo is moved back. Why was this done ?
Thanks.

jag88 - We all liked the batteries forward a bit and the servo was always right into the suspension mount - they moved the servo back for clearance and ease of adjustment....

hi josh,

i noticed in a recent pic of your c12, the cross brace for the damper tubes was mounted differently, and you had some green anod parts. Is this stuff ever going to make production?

tomlau - The geen anodized parts were samples I recieved from a friend. We are actually looking into getting green anodized parts for the future though..... The cross brace was a prototype part. It wasn't created for the handling but for the constuction as it eliminates a few screws and nuts....

Josh, any suggestions on what to do with the front shock tower on the FK? I can't slam the body without running into the tower.

Josh, another question, Todd Hodge did an article in one of the magazines about setting up an XXXS. He said to move the front arms forward to take the angle out of the half shafts. This gave better and more consistent handling and turning. How would this work on an FK ? It would require some machining on the front arms but I know you are the 'King' of the dremel ! It would probably screw up the ackerman but you would just need longer extensions to get it back. Is it worth a try ? Have you tried it ?
Thanks.

tomlau - Awesome!!

jag88 - I'm not sure... We race at ROAR's legal height limits so I never try to just slam the bodies anymore... I actually do have a pair of a-arms to try and make the front end 1-2mm longer but I have never tried them. I will be testing it before the Worlds though!!
