yeah has a yz4sf inspired look to me, the 1/10 buggy.

As for my mini, right now the only thing I am watching is the new "hard" hingepin inserts. Managed to push one right through on the hingepin block.

Has anyone found an easy solution to stopping the hub bearings from blowing out every run? I know of the spacer method, but a spacer the proper size is a unicorn and very hard to find. LC Racing EMB-1H Official Thread

Sounds like gonna just have to use shims. My impression if I am reading that link right is you can make an internal spacer using 4x6x0.2mm shims I think.

here is the original link.

shot them a message to see if they will be willing to at least say some dimensions to stick to.

Based on what someone measured they sent me images of, it looks like its:

4x6x2mm

The B6 wing mount has been posted here and in the FB groups by a couple people. It was next on my list of things to do to the LC12 but I just sold it last week. Never thought I would, but going into a different area of the hobby and it wasn't getting ran much.

What are you trying now? always interested in different parts of the hobby.
As far as the LC12 I have had a few practice days on the carpet and it is slowly getting dialed in. But the push back against the buggy has been weird. The track only runs 17.5 2wd and 13.5 4wd, so a mini class wouldn't really hamper anything. But most people just say I wasted my money and should have gotten a 10th scale. Shame is my lap time are comparable or faster than most with the LC12. It is a capable car and can't wait to get more minis out there

Crazy to see a knock off of a car that is over 7 years old. But then again its crazy to see a 7 year old car still being sold and supported.
It looks like they put a 550 motor in it. So maybe a 540 brushless motor should fit! Barely any room for electronics but damn thats cheap.

My brother has a WLtoys rock racer and its surprisingly good for what it is. If the do a knock off long wheel base car i might have to bite.

I was thinking the same thing about the 540 brushless motor. I'm just curious to know if the motor mount is a direct bolt in to the LC Racing/Tacon cars, because that just means more motor options.

Is that... Even a knock off??? Looks like it just is the LMB-1. What am I missing besides the 540? Where do you draw the line!?!? Knock offs are getting intense.

"Knockoff products are those that copy or imitate the physical appearance of other products but which do not copy the brand name or logo of a trademark. They may still be illegal under trademark laws if they confuse consumers."

Hell we could even argue that it is a clone instead of a knock off.

Either way it is not made by LC Racing they have confirmed this on Facebook.
