Last week, I used Enetti 35 on the rear, with Tamiya Option fronts, to take TQ, track record, and the win in 12th blinky at TQ.
Dave, would that be ENN12MR35G or ENN12AR35T?

It was good close racing, the RM is very easy to drive, it really just needs to go on a diet, and have an aluminum motor mount (coming in March) to be on-point.

I believe the Enetti (48.5mm) are a touch larger in Dia (more foam) than the CRC.

Either wheel is bolt on out of the box, no mounting, or truing.
There is a trade-off though. Lite weight vs: durable
The Kit Tamiya tires have the same grip as standard 30-35 tires, but they have very little wear.
For instance, the kit tires on my RM have just over 1mm of wear since new.
The Enetti lost 1mm in 3 runs Sun.

Default Pretty in Pink...

The chassis is done and electronics are installed. I did a quick "body-off" installation run to center everything and this car has a lot of potentional. Can't wait to run it in full-on-angry mode

Thanks to all of you *cough* RBF for the informative thread. Here's a picture of how the chassis turned out:



And here is a preview of the body in progress...Pink Panther



Straight from the paint booth, aka my back yard, and I still haven't taken the protective film off. For Kevin, I used about 5 coats of Pactra metalic burgandy backed with silver (I tested backing with red, black, pink, white, etc) and this is the closest match to the Wacoal livery. I also painted all of the trim so that they won't get scratched off WHEN I roll the car

Just remove the 3 screws and hex adapter, then use the same 3 screws to bolt on standard 12th wheels.



Beautiful build as always HotRod

I can't wait to get the Porsche when it's available! Stoked!!!

Dave, I'm sure you may have covered this, but what brand spur are you running? I definately want to run 64p when I get the car. Any special tricks to get it to fit? Thanks!!!!!

This results in a reduced front track width of 4mm. which is of no use.
How much room is there to shim on the front axles? Can you run a flanged inner, and flange-less outer bearing thus allowing for more shimming on the axle side?

Just some questions from an Old-Skool 12th'er.................

No room, that's the problem.

There may be a Hop-up option from Tamiya down the road to sort this out.
I suspect if someone really wanted to run standard front wheels, they could find a way to use a standard axle block...

AE Old-Skool front steering blocks, with Lunsford ti axles? Might be worth looking into.......

Thanks for the kind words. The Wacoal decal sheet is from the original kit. I received a couple of sheet from the gracious people in customer service at Tamiya America several years ago.
