Just checking!! Thought that's what you meant. Most peop[le seem to think that'a from too much side damping or too heavy side springs or a combo of both. What do you think?

That could very well be a cause for some folks. In either scenario, the chassis wouldn't move like it would want to. In my case, I haven't singled anything out yet.

Anyone got any pics of their CH12 with a Futaba s9650 installed? Tried a few things to run mine FLAT but can't seem to get it . So I just went back to the angled configuration.

I didn't try to get rid of it, just drove it somewhat with a calm aggressiveness The car was working too good and I didn't want to touch it. Ran the same tires all day with slight coning on the fronts. I just swapped them every run. Overall, had a great time in a LOOONG time and putting my CH12 together now. CAN'T WAIT!!

THANKS J
If the inside rear is lifting, try a little softer side dampening. Glad it worked out good for you buddy.

Just want to give you a Snowbirds update. Overall we learned alot. I had 2 guys running WGT and 1 running 1/12th. Both Joe Sumasky and Cory Parson were running CH10's in WGT. Joe qualified 7th in the A main and Cory bumped up from the B main into the A after winning the B main. Both cars and drivers were really awesome. Joe and Cory worked together really well to make it into the show.

In 1/12th, we finally got both cars dialed in really good but unfortunately is wasnt until the mains. With both 13.5 and 17.5 being heavily stacked with some serious competition, Joe wound up in the C main of both classes. Me nor Joe have ever ran 17.5 and to top it off, NO TIMING!!! It was about as fast as a snail.lol We had to start from scratch. We finally nailed that setup real close for the main as Joe lapped most of the field and dominated the main. In 13.5 Joe was running really well. The car was working great and the battle between Joe, Walter Henderson, Mark Burt, and J.B. Catricala was intense. Joe,Mark, and J.B. were running a train and they all got tied up. Mark got out of it safe and got away as Joe and J.B. battled for 3rd. Walter took the win, Mark took 2nd, and Joe took 3rd. The racing was intense. So close and it kept you on the edge of your seat.

I must say, after watching the races, It is amazing how far the 1/12th cars have come. 6 years ago, you would see double steering, traction rolling, ill handling cars. All the cars looked great. I cant say that i saw 1 car traction roll. It was a great thing to see. All of us manufacturers need to take a bow. We have all stepped it up drastically over the last few years. These cars are no joke.

Thanks again to all of you that support BMI. It was so nice to get out and hang with you guys at the birds. I posted a bunch of Snowbirds pictures on our facebook page. Please feel free to check them out.

Black t-shirts! Can we normal humans get them in black too ?

Great job at the Birds guys!

Ran my CH12 today for the first time in a long time and tried out the new TRC tires. The grip with this combination of car and tire was phenominal !! I do need to pick up the thicker front flex plates though...with the ones I had when I put just a bit too much traction compound on the front the front would dig really hard and flip the car. That mainly happened when I slowed down for a turn...if I just kept the hammer down a bit more the car would just fly through the corners I'm really looking forward to testing at the other track in 3 weeks. I think we have a real chance of getting pan car running on a regular basis again
