You'll need to adjust the gearing and ESC settings for a 13.5 motor. I've had a 13.5 motor in it a few times and the car was still well balanced.
Anyone have an editable setup sheet for the Griffin 12 ? thanks in advance.

Just finished building my Griffin 12, so I thought I would throw some pics up on here.

Awesome. Great reference pics. Will be building mine in the coming couple of weeks (once It's delivered ). Couple of questions. Which side Springs have you installed ? they look linear. Also, the ballstuds for mounting the center shock, which ones did you use (or does it come with them) ? thanks in advance

The side springs are the new speed merchant linear springs. They came withe the spring holders and 3 sets of springs. The center shock ball stud is a med. AE ball stud with a 2mm spacer under it this makes it the same as the one that came in the kit. I used it because the one that came in the kit had to much slop with the Hotbodies shock end.

Some questions as I'm building my Griffin. For the Speed Merchant Springs, Did you drillout the holes to use the SM set screws ?
Secondly. the Damper Tubes. I'm fairly puzzled by their function (my only other previous experience in 12th scale is with the 12R5). do they need any additional springs/parts other than what comes in the conv kit ?
Thanks again

Default IIC race

Josh,

Thanks for making the best 12th scale car out there to date. With your setup I was able to do a 10.3 second lap in the limited speedcontroller class this past weekend in Vegas at the IIC race. The car carried crazy corner speed lap after lap.

Thanks again for all your help.

Kelly
