Ran again today. The layout is slightly different and all the traction is gone. The car still handles well, it just rotates more; it's a very predictable car. Still smooth, fast and easy to keep tight lines; you can put it anywhere. I just need practice so I can go 8 minutes without brushing a few boards. Indoor is pretty much dead now so I have all summer to practice. I'll be keeping the side shocks on my car.

fatdoggy...
Glad to here it went well... I'm sure you'll be able to do alot of testing this summer!! The set ups with this chassis are endless!!


jumbo360,
Most anodizers are about 45 to 75 bucks a "lot" charge. Take a look threw your local yellow pages, that's what I did

Default Race Results

Well... After 3 days of racing at "The Gate" there were 3 BMI 1/12 conversions in the A-main!! Not a bad showing!! I was TQ and finished 2nd, Dave Morrow finished 4th, and Tony Williams ended up 7th... Our 1/12 season is coming to an end, but there will be racing during the summer during the week to stay sharp and do some more testing

Hey mike,
If I remember correctly.. The Tforce should fit right on. The front suspension will fit on, center shock, t-plate, dampening tubes, and diff. The conversion has all the graphite pieces, stand-offs, dampening post if you want to run disks, pod plates, and some fasteners.

Tried it, liked it, but was overall a little slower than my L4 front end. It was easier to drive and felt smoother, but the reactive caster front end was more aggressive and I could shave a couple of tenths off the run.

Mario,
Start with the servo flat and the ball studs on the back side of the servo saver. I like the 10 deg. blocks with .020 springs and 1 deg. of camber. I start with a .073" to .075" t-bar, dampening washers with 100wt. shock oil as a lube. 35wt. oil and olive center spring. I try to start about 4.5mm clearance at the rear of the chassis and 4mm in the front of the chassis. Then set the pod to sit level. Make sure the shock can travel in both directions and the piston doesn't bottom out. Battery position makes a big difference. Try starting in the middle.

Tim,
I ran both, and with the 3 shock set up the car was better with the old front end. The new style front end felt better with the dampening washers. Too many options...lol...

Anyone noticed a tweak with the New associated front end (RC12L4) with the CF piece across?
