I was just wondering if anyone has tried to put a shock in the front similar to the yokomo. I would like to try this for fun but am interested to see if anyone has done this.

The Yokomo has a center front shock option because it uses a double wish bone front suspension, both the upper and lower suspension arms move. The Kyosho front end is more traditional so the lower arm does not move like most 1/12th scale cars. Since the shock is attached to the lower arm it wouldn't do much good since the arm doesn't move.

Default 50th anniversary edition?

Hi guys and gals, looking at buying a plazma ra. Is there much difference between the older version and the newer 50th edition? Instead of buying a good ra should I spend the extra and buy the 50th edition?

Thanks, Paul.

Default Gearing

Hi All,
I was hoping for some gearing tips. I've only run the car a couple of times now (Team Orion Vortex 3.5T & R10 ESC) and I have the thing apart right now and it looks like my pinion & spur are a little stripped. I'd like to replace them with a more durable option that reduces the acceleration a bit...I'm having some trouble finding compatible options. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

we ran Kawada 18 ball spur using 4.5t motor on asphalt here, they are durable. to reduce acceleration, run bigger pinion, or simply tune down the punch on your esc

Here's a really good setup for 21.5 2 cell medium traction asphalt setup. Track surface temperatures were around 30~40 degrees Celsius.

2.25 mm chassis for increased chassis flex (front brace installed)

Front
Camber -1.5
Caster arm forward
Spring 0.20 Associated
Kinping Oil 30,000 Kyosho
Ride Height 3.8 mm
Medium Hard Team Bomber Tires (43.5 mm dia)

Rear
Center Shock 70 wt oil (Kyosho 700)
Associated Gold Spring
Center shock mount (standard)
Damper tubes (20,000)
Associated silver side spring
Ride height 4.0 mm
Medium Soft Team Bomber (45.00 mm)

I found this setup carried a lot of corner speed with lot's of steering. Best setup I've found so far.

Dusting off this old beast and giving it another go. I've learned heck of a lot about setup since I purchased the Yokomo C3. I wonder if I can run the Yokomo C3 front suspension on the Plasma Ra?

Is this 12th scale still competitive ? There are a couple for sale, should I go for it or get something else.
