You know, just for the sake of debate, you're thinking link the existing Serpent pod? wait, that isn't going to work... Hmm.

Serzoni, my only complaints on annodizing is it adds delays. I'd need to find a good shop that does light runs. Few hundred assorted small bits.

Hi Bob,
i was curious how you attached a bumper to your S120 when you first assembled it.
it seems to have very little room for material behind or in front of the body post. did you add a shelf of sorts?

Deluxe anodizing in Buffalo, NY. Very popular, fast turn around. 2-3 days.

Bob, I applaud your enthusiasm. I have been tinkering with 12th scale since day one.... well ok... the 2nd weekend. Do you know what happens to a MRP Pro 120 when you spray the motor with brake clean still mounted in the car? They shatter!

We've come a long ways.

I hope to see you in Billings this weekend. We can have "show-n-tell".

that first bumper on the stock chassis used the body post hole. then was held on by the body post. Raised the post 2mm and I had to swap the body posts from the front to the rear to make it work and grind a bit off the bottom of the posts as well.

New chassis accounts for all of it. I think the bumper is interesting in it's design.

You're like one of the official OG's of 1/12th. Super dedicated to your car, which I think is very cool.

Bring a drill press and a countersink bit... Odds favor ALL of the parts for the new car being here on Friday. Just what I need, to de-bug new parts when Bodine is in the house. Good news is that Mitch won't be there to whoop up on us. I think we're still stuck with Randy though.

Parts are here. Off to the track to test final fitment and performance of the T-bar conversion.

Flex on the bench feels good. We widened the slot and thinned the back 1/2 a mm on the 2mm thick bar.

If all goes well, final pics In a few days.

Maybe this week. The T-bar worked great the fit was good and the clearance excellent with stock parts.

I'll keep everybody in the loop.

few kits in stock for the S120.
https://www.ssl-stormerhobbies.com/c...s&pn=STO411002

t-bars turned out pretty unique with the digital cammo pattern. And they perform very well as a standard T-bar. There are also additional holes in the T-bar's so you can tweak the car regularly If you want to try the car without the Serpent tweak adjuster. Saves a fair amount of weight. The blue 1.5mm t-bars are nice and soft for those low traction situations.

The 1.5mm version of the digital cammo T-bars will be here shortly. All of the T-bars require our rear chassis brace to clear the rear pivot socket in it's new orientation.

Gives a LOT more meat around the rear pivot socket for a stronger car and these T-bars help provide excellent traction.

Fit all the stock parts like a glove.
