Team Associated have released two new products for their 12R5 1/12th scale. The first of these is the conversation kit which changes the car from a pivot ball-link chassis to a T-Plate configuration. Also new from the American company is a new hub and thrust cone which allow the pod plates from the 10R5 to be adapted to the 12R5. This will give 12R5 owners the same benefits as the 10R5 owners as the rear pod is better balanced for brushless motors. This is achieved by moving the motor closer to the spur gear. The new motor position also allows more room for wiring brushless motors.
