Hello,

I would suggest taking a look at the 1/12 scale forums on here as well as I think there is one specific to the 12R5.1.

I would also take a look at www.rc10.com I found a great list of setups at the following link: http://67.199.85.166/racing/setups.php

The link above is direclty from www.rc10.com. There is a ton of setups and I am sure you will find one that would be a great starting point...

I current race CRC cars so I do not specifically know the setups of the AE stuff at this point. But I was wanting to at least point you in the best direction.

Good Luck!

okay almost done. Why on earth doesn't AE make it so you can adjust the servo? I have to drill new holes to get the servo centered. URRR.

The Futaba 9650 servo is a drop in fit. I know you need to drill new holes for JR but not sure for others.

I use mostly Futaba so it was a no-brainer for me.

Pointers? Try not to turn too hard and scrub off speed in the corners. For 4 cell you could try the red spring to increase the stiffness.

it is the same size as that futaba and the same speks. alittle better actually and 15 bucks less. the output on it is just in a little bit diffrent place. I would just think they would give you some options seeing as how servo's are all a little diffrent.
