I use Kimrough gears in my 12L3. The parts I have broken so far are the T Plate, and rear tires. Ive heard a lo of people saying they break front tires, but Ive never done it. Oh, and the body cracks fairly easily, too.

Arm off-set:

Did I miss it (the answer)? Does the off-set go towards the front or the Rear?

only part that break is the T-bar..possibly a front lower arm.
Spur gear...100t 64p.. kimbrough works the best for me.

Did you sell your pro3?

A question for the 1/12th guru's.

If you sit your 1/12th on it's rear wheels so the front is straight up. then put a set square on the rear tire on the side. Should the cap that the set square has between the rular and the front tires be the same on both sides.

Hope I have explained it right and you all understand this. I seem to have about 1/2inch cap on the left but on the right the front is futher out than the rear. So it's sort of off set to the rear track. It's not an oval car.

Is this right, oh and I have a very old CRC.

I bet your checking your 1/12th's now LOL.

Thanks in advance.

Coxy.

Coxy,

I don't measure it by standing the car on end, but yes, you do want to have an equal gap on both sides. On most cars this means a bit of shimming the axle is required.

Default Low ride height

Any of you get scratched below you 1/12 cars? I'm driving a Kawada M300. There isn't any way to change the front ride height. The front part of the chassis is scratched constantly and it gets worse on tarmac surfaces. Now there's a nice chipped slope right below the front.

You need to find a way to adjust the ride height of the front of your car, or run larger front tires. The front of my car is adjustable. I use tires between 1.70 and 1.80 diameter.

Perhaps self-modification to the steering arms might work. I'm already using the hardest suspension spring, and tyres are brand new. Trued ones made the situation even worse.

Does Team Associated and Carpet Knife kits allow adjustments on the front ride height?
