in fact the wheel axle diameter is normal- i use Tamyia wheel nut for that, i supose that is the normal diameter...
The Team Edition, at least here in Europe, it comes with both diff's in front/rear..and the mounts, flywheel and clutch assembly are the same as the normal edition....regarding sg or shaft or not i say: in RC everything is possible to adapt in a way or another, but is better to use the sg shaft than the normal shaft....my tought

cheers...

Hi everyone, Iím regarding this post to Tabushi, about the R12. From my point of view and experience, the car is awesome; it's very fast and nimble vs. the other brands. But there's always a but...

Iíve been having some nightmares with the car. And that is... that It's not durable. Thereís a list of some kind of issues thatís comes out of the box.

1. Rear Belt shredded or cut off.
2. Front and Rear DIFF fences loose out.
3. Main Belt, like Riketsu said, it flips upwards, but this one happens when the car tends to jump with bumpy tracks.

NO matter how many new spare parts I buy. I just won't finish races. I don't know if it has to do with the heat temperatures and start to loose some parts. Because I live in Puerto Rico, and it's very hot down here. But this kind of issues doesnít seem to happen to US nor Europe, and that's what I'm concern about, why it happens to me? The car is very cool but just with this kind of problems that I have.

Any comments? What about you Marcos J.?

Re: Z24

1) Your BBQ grill in the rear back of the car seems to have done the trick. [U know what i mean]

2) Did you use screw lock tight on the screws?

3) Only solution I can think of is like i mentioned... adding a second belt tensioner before it goes over/under the engine. Because I dont really know what causes the freakin belt to turn upside down. It could be the impact when it hits the floor again... Because if it was because it went airborne, same thing would happen when holding the car in the air.

Marcos, I would like to ask you about running that stock manifold. I run a Modified Sirio with rd logics one piece pipe. That pipe does stick out. However I saw your pic of the car with the stock manifold. It has a very sharp turn to it so i guess I am wondering how the performace is in your opinion. I would think we would loose some flow and create back pressure. Then again some back pressure can be good??? yes/no? My other question is can that skyline pipe VR12 be purchased by it self as a one piece. My rd logics can't work like the pipe you show. Thank for the info!


I am taking the car to Las vegas for the first night race on the 11th and then to the O'Donell championship at the end of June. This will be my first races away from the home track. Should have a better idea about what the other guys are talking about in regards to belts. Right now no problems... Yes I am knocking on wood right now!!!! lol

Great racing to all!
Sam

i got the Skyline with the manifold but i used the stock R12 manifold but i cut about 5mm of the manifold and used the Skyline pipe and i must tell you it runs excellent alot of power through out the rpm range.

Default Need help Guys!

I just recently been running my R12 team spec car. And having problem with the soft turn buckles on the alloy upper to the dub. Just the sligest glance og the board and it bens or breaks. Even had the problem in the rear. I had problems with the lower A arms in the front but found they may have had some bad one because since i replaced the ones I had i haven't had that problem again. I had this R12 in Las Vegas last weekend it is so frustrating to have to drop out of one heat and then the A main due to weak area. This is a re-acurring situation. I love the way the car handles but hate to see some other car slam the boards and keep going and mine drop out.... anybody have the same problems and cured it???? Need help...
