Your absolutely right, therefore Seattle Indoor Raceway allows Jack the gripper only.

Building my DB12R now, and all I can say is the kit is put together so well in the box. Everything is where it needs to be, using little ziploc bags is a genius idea, rather than pouring screws all over the table just put them back in the bag and seal it again. You guys really didnt spare any expense, cant wait to get the car together!

Yep, its cool to have a brand new platform to work with, 10.5 racing has picked up at our local track so it's time to go out and show what the car can do

Only use one additive for everyone, like Rchoudini says they do at SIR. I don't know why they don't mix, but they don't, so the only answer is to use either 'smelly' (Paragon) or 'non-smelly' (Jack, etc.) additives on your carpet.

Go to www.brca.org, click on 12th Section, and then on Race Info, and download the "2007/8 approved additives" list. We check every additive on that list to make sure it doesn't smell, but most importantly that it works with every other additive on the list, and doesn't cause thse sort of problems. Your track can use any of the additives on the list for all its drivers, and there won't be any grip problems - not from the additive anyway!! HTH

I would rollout somewhere between 80mm and 100mm 0r 3.5" to 4.25" depending on how big your track is. Download the rollout chart and set your gearing from there. That should get you close.

80mm to 100mm? Isn't that very big. Sorry because I am very inexperienced in 1/12. On stock I used rollout of 40mm last race. Am I undergearing badly? The track was around the size of a basketball court with track width of 4 feet.
