Speaking of bodies and clearance. I had all sorts of issues getting my body to clear my steering servo. I couldn't get my servo low enough w/o the tie rods hitting on the lower arms. I ended up mounting the servo flat which cured the problem but I'm not sure how his will change how the car drives.

With the ballstuds coming off the front of the servo saver and the ballstuds in the middle holes,you will have no problems.

Haha! Yeah, what I actually do is drop a flat piece of lexan over the car and then blast it with a heat gun. That makes the lexan mold itself over the entire car. Niiiice and low.

With the IRS blocks, one thing I found is that I had to mount the servo saver ball-studs on the back of the servo saver. Otherwise, the tie-rods hit the cator blocks. (I am using the Futaba 9602 with the Kimbrough white server saver). Not exactly what I wanted to do since that changes the ackerman...

btw: do you ever sleep??

Futaba 9602 - god characteristics
Futaba 9650 - a bit lower parameters, but digital..

ok, i will shoot it to you in a PM.

By the way, we got a chance to run the DB10R today. It was really awesome. The car was so smoothe and predictable. We ran it with a 200mm TC body on it. I was really surprised with the amount of steering it has. It carried alot of corner speed and was agressive yet smoothe. I think this will be an option class i am going to really enjoy.

There is a group of us here in Colorado, that run 1/10 pan cars on the pavement in the summer. I run a modified C10X, but PRC has a few Max10's and Darkside a few cars running as well. We run 6 cell 19 turn and WAY FUN! We normally will have the fastest lap times over the touring cars and it is fun to pass nitro touring down the straight!!

To make it more fun, our on road club (CORRC) has purchased carpet to do a 60' x 120' track and have a 16,500sf building to race in. So yes we are talking 1/10 scale pan cars.

I'd love to see a picture.

That is awesome. It really is a fun class. We took it out with 4 cell and a 10 turn and it was pretty quick. 6 cell with 19 has got to be a blast. We will be trying it next time with a 2 cell lipo and 19 or stock. Its gonna be fun. I will have adrian post a pic of the car tommorow.

You have PM on DB12R.
