Ran my 12th scale today at TQ Raceway. Car was working great. I did have to purchase the 1.5mm lowered bulkhead to get my ride height correct. What a great 12th scale and cant wait to get out there again. I might even get a 13.5 car as well.

Looking for a few things to put my Plazma RA back together:

- PZ005 Upper ball eye (qty:2)
- PZ012 Upper ball (qty:2)
- PZ002 Front steering block left and right (both)
- PZ031 Front brace (qty:1)
- PZ004 Front arm (qty:1)

Most of this stuff is still readily available but I don't need all the other stuff these various parts trees comes with and since it is going to be a shelf queen I'm not trying to stockpile spares.

Ideally someone has this stuff in their spares and would throw it in an envelope for me at a reasonable price so I can put it back together and put it on the display shelf.

Default Protecting Gears

Hey All,
I know this isn't the most active thread around here, but I'm hoping someone will be able to relate....

The only option I have for running my Plazma is in filthy parking lots, and my spur/diff is caked with dirt after every run. The fine-tooth 64P gears are much too exposed to the elements...but this has been a problem for me since I used to run my Plazma MKII in front of my house 30 years ago...even back then, a pebble caught in your pinion gear could ruin your day. I came across this little doohickey from Kimborough, and was wondering if anyone had come across something similar that'd work on the Plazma or more likely, put together a custom solution to provide some protection for the gears?

those kimbrough rings were meant to keep diff balls cleaner in a different era of tracks and racing. they do not protect teeth on gears.

there is no rule that you have to run 64P gears on a 12th car either, highly recommended for racing.

on a 2011 plazma ra and the 2015 2.0 version spurs gears and diffs are standard like most 12th cars now. US diff gears work on it, it would be easy to fit those car with 48P and 32P gears for unprepped asphalt, streets, etc.

That's a good idea...hadn't even thought about switching to 48P. Though the diff balls get pretty nasty after each run as well...so I wonder if a ring like that would at least save some time cleaning. I wish they'd just open a carpet track near me! Thanks for the tip.

Get some Square RC diff plates. They are much bigger than normal and if you use a spur with a lip like Axon they fit inside and prevent a lot of dirt issues.

I'd be grateful if you were able to post a link or more complete product name? I'm having a tough time finding a square diff plate - it sounds like exactly what I need.

I'm definitely ready to chuck the 64P gears; they are much too fragile. I don't think anyone's ever made a metal spur, but do you have any recommendations for a good spur/pinion example to start with when I make the switch to 48P? I was thinking of going with something like this from Kawada.

Thanks!
