Tried that of course, made some improvement, but still not as smooth as when new. Took a bad spill when I accidentally ran over and launched off a slower car last time out. You know, zigged when I should have zagged.

I have had the same issue at times. Replace the ball in the center pivot or clean it really well. You may echeck the balls on the links also.

If that doesn't work email me.

Complete disassembly, thorough cleaning, and careful reassembly fixed problem. Weird though, in the beginning it felt just like my old Speed Merchant when one of the links was too long or too short. Thanks CFR and Steve for the help.

The onpoint one won't work because the pod is moved over and no one makes a short enough right side hub for wgt. Serpent is making one now for the STD rear end. I'll find out if it's available. Send me an email, [email protected]

hi Paul, doesn't this question depend a lot on which wheels (and rules) you are running? the jaco/xceed wheels have less offset than the bsr/crc wheels, too bad the jaco availability is an issue lately. But more confusing is the rules.

the rules that i beleived to apply were the worldgt forumula at: http://www.worldgtrc.com/ which has a 200mm chassis width and a 205mm width body limit, but the ROAR rules only state a 205mm width. all things considered, the IRS diff has a 1mm shorter right hub compared to the serpent part. wouldn't this accomodate the change in offset from the onpoint lower pod plate?

what would be more interesting is a wider rear brace to place the body posts further out. Also, when will we see some inline capable 1/12 items?

I cannot comment on WGT as I am not that familiar with the specs.

The inline version of the 1/12 is awesome. Sorry can't post photo's yet.
We made a number of changes to the inline car and I think we will see that version in a couple of weeks. We run year round here in Indianapolis so I will try that version for a while and get setups created.

My guess you will see something as we get closer to next season.

Is the inline set up for the Serpent or the 12R5 or both?

What's the latest on a 12R5 damper tube set up?

You might be ok with Jaco wheels but with the BSR You wont be able to get the track width centered, you can get it close but not perfect.

We will do one for both but the R5 version will have a few On-point original parts to make the car more sexy!

I was planning on the tube conversion but since they have a conversion or new car coming I wanted to wait and see if I could make it to fit both.

How about a front cross brace for your 12R5 chassis?

Thanks for the info

I've got plenty of damper tubes so I'll pop over to www.fibre-lyte.co.uk and get a radio tray cut to suit.

Paul and I have talked about it but nothing going at this time. If time free's up I may be able to work on it.
