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.

Cool, Bob!

Not sure about the camo though. I guess I can say I am going into the 1/12th wars! Just ordered some.

When will the pod conversion be available?

I'm with ya, the cammo is hit or miss. Above all things, it's different.

I'm thinking pods in less than 3 weeks. I'm at a crossroads with the axle. As it is, it's as wide as it can be with Jaco wheels and standard axle (will not work with the Serpent axle, to wide). The possible and likely alternative is to run the IRS style brushless axle/hubs and allow a few spacers for tuning the width. As it sits now, you have to run it right at 172mm to keep it square. Be nice to go in a few mm if need be for tuning.

I guess I just solved my own internal debate.

Ha! I love it when that happens.

I agree with your resolution to your internal debate. Right now I am running my S120 at the narrowest rear track and I am slowing moving it out but I doubt I will get to 172 so being able to use your pod at less than 172 would be a nice feature.

Well just post up as soon as they are available as I want one!!!!

Depending on how aggressively you tighten the rear pivot socket you may want to put a little trim on it. as shown.

Check out paintball forums for annodizers too. They are used to doing small runs. Or you could just get yourself one of those home annodizing kits

I think more of them on Friday. In a pinch, you could pick up the 3mm cammo fiberglass rear brace and a T-bar. I think the Cammo deck brace is only 1 gram heavier than the carbon one. Looks cooler too.

Wait a second... you bumped me out of the main at Cleveland... NO PARTS FOR YOU!!!

Bob, I do have a recommendation. Can you make the S120 into a 10th scale version with a Team Associated front end suspension?

Gracias.

That would sure seem like a logical step.

Sooo... does this mean... NOOOO

Ok, if you do make it, I'll be very happy in the pants. Since you have the funds more than I do, I am dying to see what it will look like.
