No mate! I bought my RB X-12 for $300 AUD from Radio Models Supplies.

www.radiomodels.com.au

They ship all over the world! I buy all my stuff from them.

I have NEVER had a problem with my X12, it was simple as break-in should be, it flies and is easy to tune.

The X12 is the ultimate in speed, reliability, ease of tuning and durability.

The RB X12 was the World Cup champion in 2002!

Not bad for a 2 year old engine....

It can keep up with any 3 port unmodified engine. I couldnt be happier with my X12, mounted in my V1RR with the right gear ratio, pulls 100km/h easy.

Are the same size and thread profile as the Mugen? If so then ya don't need to buy the Mugen pieces.

I got my V1r last year, ran it, and loved it. I just noticed my V1R had a leaking rear Diff. I just have the stock gear diff oil stuff(50000wt in the front and a 50% 50000wt, and a 50% 500wt in the rear). I was wondering what oil I should put in as a starting. For some reason I don't really trust mixing 50000wt diff oil and 500wt shock oil to make some concoction like it sez in manual. Is there something that has a similar viscosity? I was thinking like 5000wt, or is that to heavy. I'm still new to the sealed gear diffs. I likied how my car ran before I just want a more consistant diff oil. Thanks.

To fix the problem of the leaking diff, replace the screws that hold the diff together with Tamiya 3x10mm titanium self tappers, I did it when my rear diff was leaking, doesnt anymore! The original screws are 2x7mm I think, they are puny and very weak, replacing them provides a much better seal and is much stronger.


WILL SOMEONE PLEASE ANSWER MY V1RR QUESTIONS ABOVE!!!!!

The mixed oil will give you around 10-15K feel depending on exactly how you mix it. If you look at Kyoshos V1RR setup you will see they recommend 10K so try around there.

You need to tune the rear diff oil to suit the track, 5K for a loose surface, up to 30K for really grippy tracks.

Thanks! I think I'll try 10K to start. Should I keep several different weights in my box?

most of us are getting Kyosho Fantom springs, they are firmer than the R ones.

Myself I only use K springs, I am confused enough as it is, don't need more help by useing other manufacturer spring
