This is the Associated 1/12 scale 12R5.1 Factory Team Kit. The Team Associated 12R5.1 Factory Team Kit is the latest evolutionary step in Associated’s twenty-five years of 1/12 scale racing history. New for the Team Associated 12R5.1 Factory Team Kit is the wide three-point rear pod that has been optimized for fitting brushless motors as well as heat dissipation.
The Team Associated 12R5.1 is built on a 2.5"m woven carbon fiber chassis that utilizes a pivot-ball link rear suspension that allows for independent adjustments for chassis roll, bump, and alignment.Having the ability to make these chassis adjustments independently gives the Team Associated 12R5.1 greater potential for the best possible handling on any track surface. While testing, the pivot-ball link chassis has proven to be more durable in high-speed impacts and excels in bumpy track conditions.
The Team Associated 12R5.1 Factory Team Kit features shocks with a through-shaft design providing equalized damping throughout the full stroke of the shock in both directions without any unwanted rebound. The center shock tower has four mounting positions that split the spring rates for more precise adjustments. The center shock also controls the chassis droop and can be adjusted on the car with a turnbuckle wrench, making it'simpler and quicker to get dialed in.
The Team Associated 12R5.1 Factory Team Kit's Active Strut front end has been optimized, featuring symmetric components with adjustable caster and track width, as well as a front axle with wheel nut. The Factory Team blue aluminum servo mounts position the servo flat on the chassis for an even lower center of gravity and include Ackermann adjustment spacers. The foam front bumper helps protect the body and chassis during impacts.
The Team Associated 12R5.1 Factory Team Kit comes ready for brushless with a new optimized wide rear pod. The rear pod features a woven carbon fiber top plate and Factory Team blue aluminum machined motor mount, left side bulkhead and motor mount standoff. The woven carbon fiber top plate attaches to the motor mount and left side bulkhead at three points, and uses an integrated standoff, which makes the rear pod more rigid. The Team Associated 12R5.1 Factory Team Kit's Front to rear chassis balance is optimized at the center of the battery, allowing for an easy transition to 3.7V LiPo batteries.
