I've run it twice, so far, this way. Works fantastic.
Sweet! That's exactly what I needed to hear! It fits on the shock mount?

And they make a kit for that.....

There is no kit, you would have to buy the individual parts that J used.

I mounted the shock directly to the servo mount. You may need to lengthen your shock a few millimeters for proper pod droop.

Nice! So the outer most holes on the floating servo mount are the same location as the standoffs that are there now? So I just order the Roche graphite floating servo mt. and the aluminum servo posts?

Yes. The floating servo mount lines up perfectly.

That would be the simplest solution. I'm using Tuning Haus 15mm standoffs with 1mm AE shims under the plate.

The only other site I know of that handles Roche products is Apex RC.

2mm wider per side. Most people then space the top arm mount back so it's in the same position as 5.0 and use the 5.0 upper brace.

I "think" the chassis is 2mm longer as well.

ok hmm the 5 and 5.1 use the same brace # 4606 so if that's the case I need to space the lower arms out 2mm per side to get to the same front width at kingpin as a kit 5.2

The 12R5.1 and 12R5.2 use the same chassis plate. (4691) This chassis requires the longer, 12r5.1 Lipo Hinge Pin Brace. (4698) The 12R5 used the shorter, FT Hinge Pin Brace. (4606)

If you use the shorter 4606 you can shim your upper arm mounts in and have longer upper arms.

Shim your lower arms out 2mm, and you'll be the same as the 5.2 in front width.
