No longer using AE front end, there is a difference, and it's not something you can fix with setup

Is that the AE front end on the car above?

That looks like the old school AE lower arms and caster blocks with the R5 upper arms on it.

I am aware that there are aftermarket bulkheads for 8-32 with the R5 front end...for WGT they would be fine. For 1/12th I have heard people having problems getting enough ride height out of them. Just never seemed worth the extra cost to me.

WGT and 12th scale bulkheads are different
No ride height issues for 12th scale

On Point cars use Hyperdrive bulkheads, albeit with 3mm holes

I was using AE R5 front end and the Serpent front end on my On Point 12th. Like the Serpent better, not as twitchy as the AE.

That's R5 front end with V1 lower arm.


I can't find the Hyperdrive R5 front bulkheads for 8-32 screws. Left Hander RC is out of stock and so is RC Hobbies.

I recall some people having ride height issues with them on the 1/12th BMI...most likely on asphalt with higher ride heights.

Using R5 front end with some mods.
B3 kingpins and CRC side springs.
CRC brass balls in lower arms.
This all used on a 235MM Pro10 without any problems in straight running stability and have enough steering.
Using the Onpoint R5 bulkheads tho

Regards Roy
Ps on pic CRC springs are not mounted yet

The best handling front end I tried on my Corally GT10 car was the old-school Associated front end. I then built up a newer, reactive type front end that mimicked the action of the old-skool front end, but with the benifit of added adjustability.

Old School:



Modded reactive type:
