Default Old school front arm spacers

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can get some additional front arm spacers that are used with the "old-school" front end arms.

I got one set (Yellow, orange, brown) from SpeedMerchant with my REV 7 kit but can't get anymore directly from SpeedMerchant.

Does anyone know a hobby shop with extras?

Thanks Greg G

the CRC ones are on the same hole spacing.
And for anyone that is thinking about getting this car, I've seen a couple in action at our local track, they are great right of the box.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for being patient.

I got the new Pod Sets up on Friday, and was going to get the 7's and WGT3's up on Saturday afternoon, when we got nailed by a snowstorm. Most of the tree's leaves hadn't fallen off yet, so the snow just built up and took down tree after tree with the power lines in tow. My yard looks like it got hit with a bomb.

Just got my power back at my house this afternoon. The shop still doesn't have power. They are saying Thursday or Friday.

As soon as power comes on, kits will ship. They are packaged and waiting.

The "News" section will be updated tonight (early AM) with all the new kits.

Take care.-Bruce

Can someone list all of the front ends that fit this cars bolt pattern? 12r5? crc?

Does the associated 12r5 blue screw set fit most of the car?

Bruce, for your test car which alum servo saver do you have? And what length Associated Titanium turnbuckles fit the side links and steering links?

Thanks!

Bolt patterns based on the original associated front end. Not 12r5.1. So your 12l4 and prior front ends. As well as the irs etc that fit that front end. The crc has a similar bolt pattern. Really your best option is to just run the old school front end as the car comes.

Our car uses standard hardware not metric, so the 12r5.1 screw kit will be of no help.

Not sure what you mean on alum servo saver. We run a kimboro medium. The alum servo mounts are either the b4/t4 (standard hardware) as on Bruce's car there or 12r5 style (metric).

Side links turnbuckles are 1 3/8". Steering is 1 5/8".
